My Dealership just sent me the 5K mi check-up & oil change reminder (first oil change free). They sent me the notice saying I should have around 3,600 miles on my truck now - AND they hit it pretty close (I've got right at 3,000 miles now). Anyway, here's my question. On the flyer they sent, they advertise a "10% Off Accessories." What sort of Ford accessories would they have that I'd be interested in? Basically, what are they talking about? My experience has been that most third party accessories are better quality (& less expensive) than something branded with Ford's name on it. Would they be offering some 'Ford thing' that isn't available anywhere else?
Thanks Rock, a guy on a different fourm sent a link to "Ford Accessories" - and yeah, I think I've found a couple of things I can spend the 10% discount on. I wasn't looking to spend 'big money' so a couple of minor things caught my attention like wheel locks - you replace one lug on each wheel & supposedly increases the difficulty of stealing your wheels. The other thing I'm considering are bed tie-down hooks (from Bull Accessories). They're retractable tie-down hooks that fit on the four corner posts of the bed (2 per set). Both of these options run about fifty bucks or so.
i'm looking at a bunch of accessories but they're all functionality related, like a scangauge 2, new FPR update, new valve covers for my pumpkins (front & rear), new fluids for those 2 pumpkins & transfer case, new tranny fluid, coolant filter, new hoses, etc.
dang, i feel the pain already. it costs a bunch of money, and i still gotta replace parts and upgrade my wife's Suburban. ouch?
