  1. What Are The Best Winter Tires for an F 150? Blizzaks?

    I am running the Michelin X-ICE on the stock Platinum 22's for the first time this winter. I have made several very sketchy road condition runs up to the mountains to ski in the past week of ice and blizzard in the Cascades and I am friggin' amazed at how this truck behaves when the conditions...
  2. Tires and wheels smaller than 22"

    no, that’s what I’m saying. I like to do that too, but, with wheels that big, and tires for my wife’s and kids’ cars, my garage ran out of room. Plus, our tire shop stores the tires for seasonal changeovers, which is awesome, so save my money on new wheels and just mounted the new ones on the...
  3. Tires and wheels smaller than 22"

    I was RIGHT there with you on my 23 Platinum a month or two back. Hit dead ends with Ford (?), and several tire shops in my area as far as impacts on rolling rotations and range calculation given several different combos of 18 wheels with different snow / tire combinations. Plus, the...
  4. Best Charging Practices?

    I agree, don’t overthink it. I charge whenever the sun is out and I can pump as much of my surplus solar array production that normally flows back to the grid, straight into my truck. In winter now, with less sun, I let the days string out and run the battery down to around 40% before taking...

    I’ve been on the road camping for two weeks and came home to collect this amazing truck last night from the dealer. Spent the whole day with her and am simply friggin, flat out, impressed. So stoked with this truck. I took my dad for a drive first thing this morning….he’s a real road warrior...

    Now my dealer has me Maybe! The boxcars with my truck should have rolled out of Lincoln, Nebraska today I was just updated…I’m actually at the dealership right now….they called me a bit ago all keen to get the paperwork rolling here today, this being the last day of June…. Somebody’s bucking...

    Finally got the "SHIPPED" notification from Ford this morning and the trackers reverted back from the "Order Confirmed" snafu that happened a few weeks back. I knew it had shipped awhile ago because my dealer has been tracking on rails. Ford now says it shipped on 6/22 and my dealer is...

    Hooray! It appears my truck is in Illinois as well, on BSNF, rolling westward. Heard from my dealer those details today as well. Can't wait to see you out there on the roads of PDX! Such a rare sight to see a Lightning still. I've seen a Vestas truck and City of Portland truck, and only a...

    The plot thickens...my "Check Order Status" now has reverted to "Order Confirmed" status....after having a "Built Date" of 6/6/2023 noted since May 26. The "Reservations" page however still shows a prospective 7/1-7/7 ETA. Anyone else have this happen as their truck was moving to "Shipped"?

    Road trip! Wish I could come pick it up and drive it home the last 2,374 miles….maybe not. The wait goes on!

    Nice!!!!! Congrats! I was just doing my third check in today to see if i actually hurdled the "Shipped" step yet. Awesome to see you get your truck in hand...gives me (some) hope that the gears will turn! Cheers...

    And I’ve gone to Built this morning. 5/25 blend date to 6/6 built. Leaving a large window for shipping as it’s estimated at 7/1-7/7. But she’s finally (almost) on her way!
  13. Anyone in Wave 8 have a production date?

    Just make sure you install a comfy couch in your 7/31 home! The time passes ever so slowly…. I’ll give Ford this much, you’ll forever remember your truck build date to your last breath. It is now up there in the ranks of your birthday or your anniversary after watching the minutes tick by at...

    Same status as you, with a blend date of 5/25, but in production 5/24.... Based on the positive action seen in the 5/15/23 group, and I'm presuming Ford's desire to ship every single truck they can to recognize Q2 Revenue growth by the end of June with the shutdown/expansion approaching, we...

    Great to hear from the 5/22 club. I’m up tomorrow, so hope I catch this wave too! Then, yes, wait… yet a little further down this long road!

    Sorry, should have mentioned, it’s up on their regular inventory search on their website. Makes it look like they have dealer stock even though it’s noted as “not in stock, in transit”….and in fact not even built yet. It’s one reason why people on the forum sometimes get the impression that...

    Hey hey, my dealer just posted up my VIN with all its stock photo likenesses. Kinda fun. Like seeing an ultrasound before your baby is due. Meanwhile I’m eagerly looking ahead to my trucks actual birthday next Thursday. Tick tock… almost go time.

    Great news, thanks for the update! Go Rouge Go…yeah, the crews seem to really be pulling production through ahead of the break. Nice…

    Congrats! Mine started out last week as a 5/29/2023 build week, and then actually moved up to 5/22/2023. Haven't heard about movement in the positive direction much! Hoping I'm finally running downhill now. Can't wait to tackle my summer plans in this truck!
