We've got a 2014 F150 SCrew running around right now with the Hall effect sensors disconnected, as the truck is equipped with dual batteries and an isolator system. No problems. Eh, I don't like...

So, first thing you need to know about is the battery state-of-charge monitoring. If you look at your battery cables, you'll find some black widgets clamped around the cable. These are Hall effect...

So, first, there's no such thing as "LED strobes". There is emergency lighting equipment... most new stuff is LED, some stuff (typically older) is strobe. Ideally, you want to stay away from your...

It's really great to have some Ford representation on this forum, but posts saying "take it to the dealer" aren't really helpful. You work for Ford, of course you want the truck taken to the dealer....

Just for a few stories to make you less shy of high-mileage (at the right price) My '09 F150 5.4 SCrew is pushing 160K and running great. My father's '10 F150 5.4 SCrew was running great at 220K...

On the other hand, it may be a second-rate system that will only start exhibiting problems a few years down the road. Ford went with the safe option... I'm not sure this is something I'd want to...

I've worked many wrecks in the Texas ice where the driver said "but I've got 4 wheel drive!" I love reminding them that every car has 4 wheel stop... the look of dawning realization is fantastic.

Really? The 2.7EB produces 325hp and 375 lb-ft... 5 more hp and 15 less lb-ft than my 2009 5.4, and with a much flatter torque curve. And the 5.4s, while not being the highest performance motor in...

However, if you go outside of Ford's recommendations or the numbers on the stickers and have a wreck, you could face some liability issues. Some states are also pretty picky on vehicle weight... and...

Honestly, I think you're pushing it a little close here. While you might be just inside of GVWR, have you looked at the rear GAWR? Also, keep in mind those ratings are designed for low,...

Yep... does anyone even overhaul (routinely) motors anymore? Other than OTR trucks doing a million miles, of course. It's highly likely that the body, suspension, and transmission will go before the...

Well, you may doubt me, but my amp clamp doesn't lie. Keep in mind, this includes 2 200-watt sirens, wig wag headlights, about 30 lightheads, a 30" console full of radios, computer, and a few other...
