“If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” ―Samuel Adams
Invertors are cheap to add until large compressors. Had an 89 Dodge Daytona with 3 1100w invertors to power underbody & inner neon plus we installed a wall outlet for gfriends curling iron, hair dryer, etc.
My 2015 comes with an inverter in the back of the center console. Its probably not very powerful, but they do have it. Also it nice to have the PTO available if needed. For the extra cost its worth it when you build your own truck. I plan on adding another sine wave 2500 watt inverter on my soon to be had F350SD 6.7 XLT Chassis cab 9ft. Its going to be amazing with my custom Knapheide utility body. It's was a body for a DRW F450 modified for a SRW as well as a bunch more built in features.
Reading bodies are junk. We have them on a few other trucks and they fall apart after 4-5 years. They seem to just rust apart and everything seems to just fall apart on it. The truck is in great condition but the body makes it look like a old POS. The bodies are constantly getting welded back together. They are not being used that harshly either...Reading was once a quality product...seems to be the American way...
oh Yeah...Inverters. I'll have to take a look to see the specs on the factory inverter for use in the cab. I plan on using the in cab inverter to charge tools and batteries, basically only small power consuming devices... My 2007 Toyota 4runner has a frikin' inverter!?
[QUOTE=texastech_diesel;14603494]OCR is already an option, but I think was restricted to lower trim levels.
As I read it the idea of OCR is for the guys who work stationary and don't get the chance to drive at temp enough to sufficiently clean the system. I will give an example. Today I drove 170 miles chasing service calls. This mornings drive was around a hour all highway. I get 2 miles from site and it goes into regen mode. I hate parking the truck with a heated up exhaust system not to mention the next half hour of short little hops and the regen kicking in not getting a chance to sufficiently get up to temp. I am suggesting with a filter gauge and ability to start the regen process when it nears full I could have enabled the system to clean all while at highway driving. That would have to be way more efficient???? I find myself going for a extended drive when driving home at night when it engages 2 miles out. It's frustrating when I just finished a 60 mile drive. I know it will pick up the next drive and carry on but some days I know the next days drive will be to short to complete. Just my 2 cents...
Impatiently waiting. Did Mr. Levine ever make his announcement yet? I'm really looking forward to hearing more about these trucks!!!
No I asked him twice since then. He reassured me the news was coming. I'm sure there's an embargo to be lifted any day. Maybe they are waiting for the iPhone 6 to be announced so they can get all the media buzz. Haha I have no idea what's going on.
I want to see cabs that don't fold over like paper in the same rollover where the rest of the truck remains in tact. The cab pillars should be designed to make the cab the safest place to sit, not the engine compartment. i'd like more occupant safety in the next SuperDuty. Not more lip service. Not more curtain airbags. But a cab structure that has a higher regard for the life of customers than Ford has gotten away with on the current Super Duty cab.
