    Yes, that was the area I was seeing. Replacing that rocker gave you some flexibility in fitment.

    You are rolling right along. Is the door slightly open in the bottom picture or is that a shadow from something else?

    I can imagine, not much fun. I’m sympathetic to the guy installing them knowing the challenge.

    It has to be mildly frustrating when you make an adjustment here, you will subsequently be left with an adjustment somewhere else. Very tedious work I’m sure. Will you be painting this with the body installed or are you taking the parts off to paint and then reinstalling?

    Nikola Motors accused of fraud

    This is turning into a bigger deal than I expected.

    Unifor contract update

    Agreed, I haven’t heard anything about a new 6.8L.
  7. Do you think Ford intentionally had those wires/lines dipping down a bit?
  8. I know this is a rendering, but I’m still hoping for a break line between the bed and the cab on this vehicle, otherwise I think this looks pretty good.
  9. It looks great, thanks for sharing!

    Sounds like a terrible life you have there, lol. The “choice words” help every project go smoother. I do like the rock guards.
  11. That’s true, but they really don’t market Superduties either. I suspect people who want a diesel already know they want one, verses a buyer looking at the various engine options and then picking one. That diesel premium is hard to swallow.
  12. Yes, that is my understanding, so ultimately it’s on Ford.
  13. It’s funny, while buying a new/demo Escape for my daughter yesterday we were talking trucks, and he was saying he has only sold a couple since it’s been available. My dealership sells a lot of trucks so yet another example of the lack of interest in the diesels.
  14. Frankly, in this day and age of electronics, you would think they would be able to come up with a reliable cost effective unit that didn’t have all these problems. I would like to think we are anomalies, but according to my dealer, we are not. It seems to me, the only real solution is replacement, instead of jacking around with reprogramming. They did the same thing to me on my 2017 Raptor, and once it was replaced, it was fine. Unfortunately they waste people’s time with the reprogramming. It’s quite disappointing actually.
  15. Well, you know they are always reluctant to change the APIM module so we had the prerequisite reprogramming, which did not initially fix the problem, but while we were waiting for the new module it actually started functioning appropriately, So we didn’t mess with it. However, recently it started acting up again but not as bad as it was, so we will see how it goes moving forward and then start the dang process over again I’m sure since it’s 10k miles later. If it continues to be a problem I’ll be lobbying for replacement on the first return trip to the dealer. It seems they need to upgrade the quality or something with these APIMs.
