  1. I will let Ford Dealer do my first oil change-price was right

    Got my Hybrid XLT truck Dec 15, 2021. This week I shopped around 2 places plus Ford Parts to get idea of what oil and a filter would cost. I was thinking I would get acquainted with the underside of my truck. I have only 5787 miles as of today and it also started displaying on the dash that an...
  2. 75,000 Tacoma's recalled. Not a parts problem-assembly problem

    I just read, Child seat anchors are defective and this is what Toyota said. Toyota does not yet have a fix, but is working on it. We would recommend that, until a fix is ready, try to transport kids who need car seats in a different vehicle if possible. I just had my 5 holes and 4 shutters...

    I have a 1963 built home with the standard 2 car garage. I have had 2 cars and 4 motorcycles in it with the door closed. Now I have a Prius and the Maverick and 3 motorcycles and the door can still close. Before my truck arrived I had measured out my space and parked the bikes and Prius...
  6. My real truck can haul my motorcycles w/ help of custom metal tailgate support and level struts

    Today I figured I would do a test and see what it would be like to haul one of my bikes. Granted my bikes are not as big as others have hauled but about as long. I removed the Gator tri fold soft cover but left the bedrug mat in place. Next thing was to place metal struts that I had made to...
  7. Tailgate Support for Hauling Motorcycles (or loads) with tailgate level.

    I had made a set for my Sport Trac because the short bed required my motorcycles to rest the bike's rear tire on the tailgate. These supports firmed that up and removed the weight on the cables. Commercial ones are available for some trucks but cost typically 99.00 a pair. Today I build a set...

  10. 5 STAR RATED DEALER - THEY DO EXIST - post the good ones here if you wish

    Not all dealers are bad and I suspect many are fine but there are some that rate a 5 star rating. I hope others can add to this about their good experiences. If you have a bad experience, try not to add to this post. There are many threads already started. Good people and businesses do...

  12. BILLNOROVILLE window sticker - last update 11/25.

    Ordered 9/8 While XLT with a hitch so it is a pretty simple order. I locked in financing a week later at 1.9% . Dealer gave me Vin NRA19131 that day and told me build date was 11/8. Ford web site says I have no existing orders so not everything at Ford websites work (and most know that)...
  13. Visited Geweke Ford in Yuba City, CA. 3 Mavericks arrived 10/2

    I looked on line at Ford to see what dealers in my Oroville area had Mavericks in stock. Geweke Ford was listed as having 3. I called about 3 days ago and they had ZERO but the Ford page had 3. Last night I get a call that they had 3 come in Saturday. Today, 10/3 my wife and I go take a...
