Ill start by saying that this forum has helped me make some great decisions on upgrades for my F-150 but how can Ford justify the price of these newer trucks when we still have to make expensive upgrades just to make them perform decent. Until this truck I have always been a diesel guy. When I purchased super-duty's in the past the FX-4 package meant at least upgraded rancho shocks which weren't the best but better than super cheap stock shocks! With 40K miles on my 2016 F-150 4x4 which doesn't really go off-road my stock shocks were completely shot to the point where I could compress them with one hand using very little pressure. I had read a bunch of blogs about the stock shocks performance in relation to axle hop and horrible cornering and decided to change the shocks. I put on a set of rear Bilstein 5100's over the weekend and what a day and night difference in how the truck handles everything. A $185 price tag from 4 wheel parts and 30 minutes of work on a 50K truck (are you kidding me) to get a decent ride! I'm hoping the towing aspect will be is as improved as the handling is now. I dont know how everyone else feels but I for one think Ford should rethink their advertised offroad package on these 1/2 tons.
