  1. Took the 22 F350 6.7 in for the 15k service and two recalls. At the end of the three hour visit was told the reprogram of the Integrated Trailer Relay Module (Recall 22S17) could not complete due to a loss of communication. The truck is rescheduled for a 4-6 hour complete vehicle reprogramming. Anyone else experienced this or have current service insight?

    What is this “part” called?

    Thanks guys. I had the bumper on the shelf from the ‘22 F350 Lariat anyway and it gave me fog lights and tow hooks for the ‘96. I did have fun posting this after Jambin13 asked about the gap seal because I remember at the time I did the install being very pleased to be able to retain that part!

    Strangely enough, it appears Ford used that same part on the ‘96 Eddie Bauer.

    Am I Crazy? My wife thinks so.

    I don’t think crazy people (i.e. probably everyone here) can identify other crazy people, so your wife is probably right. That being said, heck yes, no question you should go! I totally lucked out in my case and by chance happened to see the transport coming into town. I followed it to the dealership and watched it get off loaded. It was great!

    It’s been very helpful to show my girlfriend other examples of guy’s spending thousands of dollars to upgrade brand new trucks (some that haven’t even arrived yet). It bolsters my argument this is “normal “ behavior!

    I went with the new style WeatherTech as well and really like them. They are more of a matte finish, fit well, and are not slippery. Of course I keep a towel on them because I don’t like getting even my floor mats dirty!

    Holster mounts for hand gun

    I agree with everything you just said. I believe if can be armed you should be and if you choose to arm yourself then practice and prepare yourself mentally for possible situations.

    Holster mounts for hand gun

    Sounds like you handled that appropriately and I appreciate that. I also know most people are responsible and reasonable and do similarly as you did. I did have a traffic stop once and made a passenger side approach. The driver had a console mounted holster and about the time I noticed it he quickly grabbed the pistol to place it in the glove box. Yes, my anxiety level bumped up a notch! My thought and preference is, if you are not a threat to the officer, then the officer does not need to know you are carrying. It’s just one more thing for the officer to have to deal with or be concerned with. That changes of course if the officer asks you to do something that would potentially reveal your weapon. At that time you could say something like what you did above and let the officer direct you from there. I guess my point is all of those options go out the window if you are carrying any other way than on-body, concealed. I can understand why folks carry this way but I won’t do it myself. Too many pro’s for concealed carry and I only see potential problems with any kind of off-body. Just my two cents and to each his own.

    Well Gharri30 it appears we now have an appropriate thread to continue our earlier conversation. I wanted to ask you how you deal with a traffic stop with this set-up, assuming of course that you have had one?

    And that’s what a well researched truck build looks like. Excellent work and thanks for posting the follow up pics. PS - I’m jealous of your suspension setup. I’ll bet it drives amazing off road.

    Ok that was hilarious and made my morning. I immediately sent it to my girlfriend and she now wants them for “her side.” And thanks for getting back to me Gharri30 on the off-topic thing. Would like to talk further but would have to be its own thread I suppose.

    Hello Gharri30, I am hoping to hear your thoughts on this and maybe others as well. I’m a huge advocate for personal protection and concealed carry. I’m generally not such a fan of off-body carry, which this is, for many reasons. So how does this set up work for you? Do you transition to a concealed carry holster when you get out of the truck or does the pistol stay in the truck? And vise versa, do you have to un-holster every time you go to get in your truck? Wouldn’t it be better to just carry concealed and always be armed? Please don’t take offense at my questions, I genuinely want to know the thought process here. Also sorry if this was a hijack of the thread.

    To level or not to level

    I think I’m way past the “to level or not to level”arguments here. That being said I agree with danielj, make the truck your own, or not, and be happy with it. The leveled black beauty with the Westin grill guard (and obviously oe bumper) looks fantastic in my book but if it’s not for you, that’s fine too. My truck is almost to the point I had planned for it when I placed the order and in my mind does everything I want it to do. Is it everyone’s flavor? No, but it’s also what makes it unique to me. I also can’t leave my Harley Davidson alone. That’s a whole other story but the same idea. The Bronco in the background is one I just hauled up to Missoula for a friend. 1,200 miles and a seized engine. Leveled or not, it’s not going anywhere for awhile. Peace out everyone and continue enjoying these great trucks.

    Good choice going with the replacement leaf springs. In hindsight it is the route I should have taken. I will be curious how that works out for you. In the meantime I’ve spent so much time fabricating/modifying my air bag mounts, so the air spring can lift off of the seat, I don’t want to change anything now. Definitely look into the Forscan thing. It’s a huge benefit to have on these trucks. For example, being able to adjust my tire pressure settings was a game changer. And yes, decisions, decisions! I made two separate changes on mine after the order. I feel your pain haha
