  1. Job opportunity... who has done field assignments before?

    ^^^TOTALLY AGREE^^^ Best thing I did was go into the USAF for 21 years after HS. Got to see the world, got to learn far more than I would have in one office, got to learn different cultures, and figured out where I DIDN'T want to retire. Luckily I had a forgiving and understanding wife. My...
  2. Leveled the 2019

    F150 Ecoboost Suspension
    Truck looks good...but would look even better by removing the Jay Leno Chin off the front bumper. AK4wheeler
  3. How to tow a car?

    F150 Ecoboost Towing
    I always tie to the "frame" portion of the unibody, front and back, criss-crossing from side to side. There are always tow holes in the the unibody "frame". You can by the special tools for this, but I have never needed them. AK4wheeler

    F150 Ecoboost Wheels and Tires
    I always hear these stories and wonder why I am never lucky enough to score a great deal. Congrats on the score. AK4wheeler
  5. 2014 f150 Ecoboost Grille Guard and Winch

    F150 Ecoboost Chat
    Are you upgrading the CAC with a Full Race version that relocates the CAC behind the grill? If not, you might want to start saving for the Full Race kit because that bumper will block all airflow to your OEM CAC. I wish you luck. AK4wheeler
  6. IWE issues

    F150 Ecoboost Chat
    Other than losing 1-2 mpg...no adverse problems that I have read. At least the 4wd system will be available when it is needed. When the IWEs decide to go, you lose the ability to lock your front hubs, so you have no 4wd capability. The Eliminator kit permanently locks the front hubs and...
  7. 4WD issue?

    F150 Ecoboost Problems
    It is your IWEs. It is a know problem caused by poor design. There is a vacuum check valve ($5) that feeds vacuum to the hub to keep the system in 2wd with no transaxel turn while driving. There is a vacuum solenoid ($12) that directs the vacuum away from the hub, engaging the transaxel when...
  8. Saving for kid's college, questions

    For all three of my kids, the FAFSA application took into account ALL of our holdings...investments, house, 529...what p!ssed me off the most was I had to count my disability income from my injuries that occurred during my military career and MY retirement. TOTAL BS. The FAFSA SHOULD ONLY be...
  9. Saving for kid's college, questions

    Just wait until your children reach college age and they have to fill out the FAFSA Financial Aid paperwork (mandatory). The Gov't counts any income, investments, retirement, disability payments and 529s for the potential student AND THE PARENTS...so 99% of the time the student is denied for...
  10. 2014 f150 Ecoboost Grille Guard and Winch

    F150 Ecoboost Chat
    I removed my lower valance when I bought my truck, and low and behold, there is still 2" of plastic below the stock tow hooks that can't be removed without a sawzall. That portion of the valance that can't be removed is there to cover the open ends of the frame horn. The HammerHead bumper is...

    F150 Ecoboost Chat
    It's your opinion on the "retarded looking" part of your statement, but the fact remains that the HammerHead winch bumper is the ONLY bumper that is made to keep an opening for the OEM CAC location. If the Ford Engineers weren't ignorant to design the CAC to hang behind the bumper, we would...
  12. Behind the grill lights

    F150 Ecoboost Lighting
    Red and blue lights are a known no-no anywhere on any vehicle not an emergency vehicle. AK4wheeler

    You will never get that manly V8 rumble out of these EB engines. AK4wheeler
  14. Should I make myself an ecoboost version of this headache rack?

    F150 Ecoboost Appearance
    That is one of the better looking headache racks I have ever seen...it is pretty cool. I wish I had the tools and skills to make something like that. I have the stealthy style BackRack headache rack on my boost. AK4wheeler
  15. After market aux switches

    F150 Ecoboost Chat
    I have a switch panel made and sold by Kustom FX off the main F150 Forum page. Very high quality units, totally custom (tell him what you want and he makes it), and easy install. I believe he has very reasonable pricing for what you get with the quality built in. He has many different styles...
  16. Winch mounts for EcoBoost trucks

    2nd Gen F150 Ecoboost
    Looks good...but it definitely is blocking the intercooler. Hopefully you don't have any issues. Just remember, if something happens and the intercooler is at fault, you will have to fight Ford because they will say that blocking the IC voids the warranty. Good Luck AK4wheeler
  17. Giant Lower Air Dams

    F150 Ecoboost Chat
    Nothing that a sawzall won't take care of... First thing I removed from my F150...I think day after I bought it. AK4wheeler
  18. New to the site, previous GM guy, now an EcoBoost Owner

    Welcome and congrats from moving from poor quality Government Motors truck to a real truck. I agree...do a fresh maintenance job changing all fluids, filters, plugs and brakes...make your truck yours. FYI...a real weak point on these trucks are the brakes. Rotors warp easily. My opinion is...
  19. Dudes! Help me out. Need to know what this connector is called.

    F150 Ecoboost Lighting
    Not enough info. Are these connectors on the truck side or taillight side? Were the connectors plugged into something and came unplugged? I would contact Spyder direct and ask them what the connector is for. Instead of directly soldering the wires, I would by some weather-pack connectors...
  20. Recs on rock lights?

    My off-roading is down old logging roads to get to my hunting honey holes. I don't extreme off-road, but I do stretch the beast's muscles on occasions. AK4wheeler
