    2nd Gen F150 Ecoboost
    Hey all, I used to frequent this forum a lot about 4yrs ago when I owned a 2014 F150 Eco. Sold that truck cause it had numerous issues that Ford wouldn't address, primarily the takeoff shudder. Last month my wife tells me she wants a new F150 and I figure what the heck, Ford has had 4yrs to...
  2. Help, need Trailer Tire Recommendations and Trailer Tire Reviews

    Kumho AT51 is what I run on my trailers. Almost as cheap as trailer tires and much, much higher quality.

    F150 Ecoboost Problems
    Not to be a pessimist but the shudder will come back. It only appears to have fixed it because the mount is new and still tight. This has been gone through for over two years on this thread that the Raptor mount will not solve the problem. Also if you read this whole thread you would see that...

    F150 Ecoboost Problems
    I don't know if you have read this this entire thread but I am the one who started it. Not only does the raptor mount not solve the problem but Corporate Ford also sent me a letter stating they would void my power train warranty if I or my dealer installed the raptor mount. The newer F150 have...

    F150 Ecoboost Problems
    The 2014 I had suffered the same problem. The first 10,000mi it got great fuel economy, averaged about 16-17. Thereafter the economy started to dwindle and by 17,000 miles I was only get 13.3 avg and 15 hwy. I tried all the suggestions on this forum and nothing helped. During this MPG...

    If you think your Ford is built any better you are not being honest with yourself. At one time Ford had the market on Domestic build quality but those days are long gone. The big 3 are all on the same page now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    F150 Ecoboost Problems
    My Ram was $38,000, well worth the extra 3k over the Ecoboost. I honestly don't think a diesel is any more expensive maintenance wise. If you are judging based on a 7.3 then I understand where you are coming from. I had an 02 7.3 that cost me a fortune to keep running. Cummins is in a whole...

    F150 Ecoboost Problems
    I will just say that I too loved the platform of my F150 Ecoboost. However, the problem has not been fixed with the newer models either. I ended up in a 2015 Ram 2500 Cummins and am VERY happy with my decision. I already have 34,000mi on it with zero issues and an average of 17.5mpg which is...
  11. Cheap tires

    F150 Ecoboost Wheels and Tires
    I am running the Falken's on my '15 Ram 2500. I've put 15,000mi on them thus far with 90% of that towing a trailer and they are barely showing wear.( about 3/32 off) For the money they are the best tire I have purchased to date. They could use a little more wet weather traction though. Sent...

    Curt is sending me new brackets as well. The rep I emailed said there must be some kind of binding going on but I know for certain that isn't the case. Think the brackets are just undersized. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    F150 Ecoboost Wheels and Tires
    I have those on my Ram 2500. Have put 13,000mi on them so far and they've been awesome. Best part is they were $715 out the door from Discount Tire. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    F150 Ecoboost Problems
    There isn't a fix; I ended up selling my truck because of it. It was so bad with a 7,000lb trailer hooked up that it would shake a drink nearly out of the cup holder. I am still at a complete loss that Ford won't do anything about this problem. They are really nice trucks otherwise. Sent...
