Id like to have it. But id prefer the performance upgrade. Of corse i think im the only one on this site with a kingranch fx4 for a daily commuter vehicle. I use the back of my truck about asmuch as people remove both rear rows of seats in a minivan

Honestly, I would like both. I know the only one I have a chance at is the new tuning. You do commute in style.

If they're putting larger tanks in the short bed crew cabs, that's a rip-off! Maybe they were just using up inventory left over from Explorers on the initial production trucks. Makes me feel like a sucker to have taken the risk on the early production and get the shaft at the same time! So far the initial run have crappy dip sticks, 2 inch receivers instead of 2 1/2, lower power ratings, and now puny fuel tanks?

I'm waiting on a Titan which will run about $1,200. A 37 gallon fuel tank would have kept me from needing it.

I seem to have been lucky. It seems when i talk to ford on things and say kingranch they try to make me happy. Like my bitchout email they got from me the other day. i sent one 2 months ago and never heard back. this time i said my expensive *** kingranch and i got a email back the next day saying the sync upgrade thats on the current build trucks will be for ours within 6 weeks.

Heh guys talked to my parts dept. at dealer and a 37.5 gal. tank cost 390.00 bucks.Now here is the kicker for a short bed crew cab you have to have a 158 inch. wheel base. I have a 156 inch. wheel base so what has ford done made the wheel base 2 inches longer on job 2?

II dont see how they could extend the wheelbase without a massive redesign of the bed or cab... if they extended the cab to match interior space of the 150 ima be pissin fire mad.. thats the one complaint i have of my truck.. that a 150 has more rear passanger room

Me thinks Ford publishes too much information by too many people. It is the recipe for stuff like this

Checked ford site capacities it states wheel base of Crew Cab 6.7 of 158 or 172 and you get a 37.5 gal. tank. I need to find a couple more inches on mine and I can have a bigger tank.

I have about 4 tanks now and am seeing between 17 and 19 on average... mixed highway / round town. Crew Cab Lariat short bed, 18 stock tires / wheels and 3.31 rear end. When I was doing highway, I actually got better mileage when free style and less when I was cruise control... is that weird? Do you think I will ever see over 20 mpg? currently have 1300 ish miles into the new rig. LOVIN IT!

I noticed when you go down a long hill with the cruse set at, say 62 MPH,
the transmission drops 2 gears, I think to hold the speed back. You can't
really feel it, you have to have the button pushed on the shifting lever
to know what gear you are in, it shifts so smoothly. If you are going up and down a lot of long hills, this would explain the MPG
difference with the cruse on and off.
