    External Radio Antenna

    Probably to appease the same crowd that wants manual locking hubs still.
  2. Some of those that are closer to the factory do go straight by truck. A member in Michigan had his shipped from KTP to dealer directly by Jack Cooper.

    What am I missing F350 vs F250 w/ HCTT?

    What I gathered from the tow guide is F250 HCTTP is 10,800 GVWR and F350 is 11,400 GVWR. They are both rated to tow 20k conventional and F250 19,100 5th wheel with F350 22,000. This is comparing crew cab diesel with 160” wheel base. My ‘21 Lariat Ultimate, CC, 6.7, 160” with HCTTP has a payload of 2754.

    Exhaust Regens

    I am coming up on 3000 miles on my ‘21. I do a mix of city and highway driving and have found it goes into regen about every 500-750 miles. When the DPF gets to 75% it will do an active regen. It takes under 10 minutes to go from 75% to 0%. When towing it will do a passive regen from any % to 0% if there is enough load. I have read that if it doesn’t get a chance to complete a regen, it will tell you to drive to clean DPF. I enabled the DPF % screen with Forscan. You can also enable the ability to turn off auto regen with Forscan. Without watching the DPF % screen I would not have any idea it was in regen otherwise. It will regen at any speed as long as engine temp is up to normal. I pulled into my driveway with 20% left on a regen and it completed it while idling in my drive.

  6. Directly from the MCA newsletter: Ford Motor Company is modifying the X-Plan program for Mustang Club of America members. Going forward only Standard and Digital members will be eligible for X-Plan. Additionally, you must have been a member of MCA for a minimum of 90 days before you can use the X-Plan. The latter 90 day requirement is being added for all organizations eligible for X-Plan. More details as they become available.
  7. Costco will refer you to a participating dealer in your area. Then you will be at their mercy. Dealers pay Costco to participate so you may not always get the best. For my wife’s Honda it was the worst dealer in our area so we ended up passing. Costco and the Ford site are usually a couple weeks behind when the order guide comes out. I ordered a 21 in November and took delivery a couple weeks ago. I went the x plan route by joining mustang club of America and went to a dealer of my choice.

    Ultimate vs Value package

    Just for clarification the ultimate package doesn’t get you LEDs, you still have to order and pay$$ for the option.
  9. I agree 100%. I just bought last week with x plan and ended up right at 10% off MSRP with rebates and PCO. It would be difficult to do that by any other means under the current circumstances.
  10. Problem is those were the same photos for the 2020s and the interior shot is the new F150 - it has a console shifter. And the associated stories read like generic clickbait. I would think if there were any updates, they would be leaked by now....

    2021 F250 Lariat

    Cyberherdman- thanks for your time and updates over the past month. My truck was delivered yesterday and thanks to your info and a little bit provided by my dealer, I was able to track it through production and shipping. I learned a lot and it provided a welcome distraction. Here is a fresh off the truck pic.
  12. Where did you see spy photos at?

    Canadian orders

    There’s not a lot sitting at dealerships in the US either. Of the 10 closest dealers near me, only one has more than five Super Duties on the lot. The average is two to three and they are not there very long. My November 12, 2020 order should be delivered any day now. My dealer had allocation and my order was picked up immediately.

    Ultimate vs Value package

    I admit it is sad that on a Lariat to get LED headlights you have to spend $4300 on the black appearance package or $3400 on the Ultimate package plus an additional $1200 for the LED headlight option. On the King Ranch it’s included in the Ultimate package or available as a $1200 stand alone option.
