  1. Sell Lightning and go back to gas pickup?

    I don't even have a Lightning yet and I can tell you that I will NEVER go back to gas. 4+ years now as a gas-free household and I'll be damned if I get back into that boat again. If I have to pull a horse trailer or something... sure. But the good news is I don't need horses and make other...
  2. What is the Current Approximate Time From Placing Order to Delivery?

    OP & FNG here... I have no idea what chip date or blend date are so much of this applicable info is going straight over my head. So far I'm seeing about 70 days from the date of order so that gives me a simplified idea: nearly a month-and-a-half from the reference point I have which is my order...
  3. What is the Current Approximate Time From Placing Order to Delivery?

    Curious about timing on a couple of things I've got to make a decision on with enough zeroes on the end that I want to make sure I've got the liquidity to take delivery of this Lightning. I've seen some who placed their order a couple of days before me (I had to think on it before clicking...
  4. Wave 3 invites who don't order won't be cancelled; possible Pro / XLT ordering reopening

    Exactly. First nobody took Tesla serious, now Ford is basing its business practices & processes on what Tesla does? I highly doubt that is their motivation.
  5. Wave 3 invites who don't order won't be cancelled; possible Pro / XLT ordering reopening

    This is the exact boat I'm in too. Classic Bait & switch that should be examined closely by the independent .gov watchdogs responsible for such transgressions. It's basically the modern way to practice "Bait & Switch" which is a clearly defined illegal practice that was outlawed decades. People...
  6. 120 Volt Ford Mobile Connect Charge "Curve"

    EV batteries do not benefit from "trickle charging" the same way smart phone batteries do. The chemistry is designed to handle change rates 30x higher so the battery really won't notice the difference between 15A or 80A as it's all relatively minimal compared to the rates it's designed to...
  7. Gas card cancelled & now looking for EV charger credit card or tracking payment

    In a thread over on another forum someone had mentioned that Costco's card was providing cash back for EV charging. Something about the specifics state that the charger had to be @ Costco but people were confirming that it was working at any location. I don't have a Costco card to test this out...
  8. Scheduled production week disappeared?

    Mine looks exactly the same (sadly) as it did yesterday on browser: "Production" is there but no date or any new info as of this message. Big sad.
  9. Maintenance Schedule - 10k service

    If you think 10k miles is a good interval to rotate your tires to prolong their life on something like a heavy EV with endless torque... you're in for a rude awakening. Most independent tire shops recommend 5k or some even as low as 3k on these types of cars even at their own resource expense...
  10. Maintenance Schedule - 10k service

    Ford needs to realize what Tesla did: regularly scheduled maintenance intervals on an EV are pointless. Especially during the factory warranty term. If you need new wiper blades or your windshield washer fluid needs topped off... you know. This is another example of legacy manufacturers...
  11. Coupon to get 2022 pricing?

    That's what I assumed as well, unfortunately for me. There were still some areas on the Ford site that showed the lower price when I placed my order but I knew what I was getting into so figured it wouldn't apply to me. Still holding out hope that something will happen before the truck is built...
  12. Coupon to get 2022 pricing?

    Just so I'm clear, this is for people who were invited to order a 2022 and Ford wasn't able to produce enough to fulfill all of those orders and they got bumped to 2023, right? This doesn't apply to people like me who weren't invited to order after the 2023 details and pricing increase was...
  13. Charging another EV off Lightning?

    That's going to create some issues and I really hope that's in a forthcoming firmware update as it's incredibly important for the end user to be able to manually lower the draw. Example use cases would be that you find yourself at an RV park out in the middle of nowhere and their electrical...
  14. Charging another EV off Lightning?

    Fords don't have this? I assumed it was all EVs as it's a pretty important function for safety and sanity.
  15. Charging another EV off Lightning?

    Nope. As of right now that's the only way to charge 30A @ 240v is to have the truck "running" in it's current firmware configuration. There's cooling that takes place for the inverters should they begin running warm so my guess is that this is the requirement to be able to power the management...
  16. Motor coolant over temperature. (Truck in dealer service department, Coolant Pump needs to be replaced)

    Either a software issue, a temp sensor issue or there's a genuine issue with the supplemental cooling of one or both motors. Is the coolant level on these trucks user-serviceable? Either way, I'd contact Ford immediately and I wouldn't drive it as it could leave you stranded.
  17. Hello Everyone! New Member About to Place My Order: Need Clarification on One Option Please

    Can you elaborate on the "it has some very specific use cases" as compared to AP1 because I use that everywhere. So far, from what I'm reading, it seems like the delta between AP1 and BC is quite large and this delta is exactly what I'm referring when I say it seems like it's not worth it at...
  18. What MSRP to use for the new tax credit?

    I can't neither confirm nor deny but if that ends up being the case I will immediately change my order to include the big battery pack at a minimum. It would also make sense since SO many trucks/SUVs are barely under $80k w/o the most popular items people include. We really need to incentivize...
  19. Hello Everyone! New Member About to Place My Order: Need Clarification on One Option Please

    I wouldn't hold your breath. I gave up on that fairy tale years ago. I will say though that, for as much as I (and most others now) bag on the newer "FSD" and it's lack of features, the previous iteration of Autopilot (starting in 2014 with Autopilot 1 aka AP1) remains a fan favorite. It just...
  20. Hello Everyone! New Member About to Place My Order: Need Clarification on One Option Please

    One other thing, has Ford historically allowed the purchase of software options after delivery is taken? If I miss something and then realize after I take delivery that I wish I had it and it's a software toggle... can I pay for that to be turn on or has Ford taken the traditional approach to...
