New to FTE

Hi everybody, I stumbled across FTE last night and found it very informative. I've been a Ford fan for years, owned several and drove many for a living. Now retired and ordered a new 2019 F-150 Supercrew 5.0L. Read about some members having problems with their 5.0Ls and some had them replaced by Ford. Mine was built today at Dearborn TP and I'm hoping all will be okay with the engine. Delivery 3-6 weeks we hope, this is the worst part. May be a bit longer shipping to Vancouver?

Hello,
New to this FTE world but looking forward to it. I've got a 99' F250 Super Duty, 2WD, long bed. It has an awesome BrandX shell (former telephone). 5.4L V8 with an automatic transmission. It's in great shape and hope to keep it that way.

New member intro


Hi All: thank you for the add. I purchased my first truck, F250 6.2l SB 3.73, back in October and thought it was time to join the forum to benefit from its members. The truck works perfect to tow our fifth wheel.

Confused about gas/diesel and then now if I buy new you have eco-boost and all different types of engines. I just need something reliable. Simple and reliable and that doesn't rust out so easily. Yes I am a woman, and yes, I don't have much knowledge about these things. So I joined to read and gain knowledge and get some advice from my manly men out there who own Fords, and know what is what.
Thanks-Rosie
Hey Rosie: You mentioned “simple and reliable”, “not towing”, “need payload”. Based on those key words, I’d recommend the F350 6.2l gas. Diesel is best if towing heavy. Gas engines are lighter and provide greater payload. So you may be even fine with an F250 but for the small difference in price and ride quality, you won’t have to worry with the F350. There is also a FB group for F250/350 gas where you’ll get add’l info. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Nathan Capps Proud Ford Owner

Hello all im new to this thread but not to the Ford family of cars and trucks as I own (2) Ford pickups and a 2002 Ford Mustang GT. All run and perform perfectly. I do have a question about the rotors for one of my pickups. 2004 F250 XLT Superduty Crewcab 5.4l. Are the 2WD rotors and 4WD rotors different or interchangeable? I purchased new rotors for the xlt and everything said compatible with my vehicle but once I checked out a exclamation point popped up saying these rotors were for 4WD vehicles only. Does that rule only apply to the earlier 1999 pickups?

Hi all, just signed up to learn more about troubleshooting electrical gremlins. Found a bunch of GEM codes while trying to find a mild misfire and the interwebs led me here. Have a 2003 F150 Harley Davidson that's a showing its age a bit, but still going strong overall.
