  1. 🙋‍♂️ What did you do TO / WITH your Maverick today?

    The more you do now, the sooner your 24 will come. Has to be Murphy's third law or something.
  2. The Builder's partially unbiased Maverick observations.

    Hope you don't have to train the service department wherever you might take your truck if necessary as you did the sales department. What model Pirellis came on your truck? I have an FX4 XLT on order and would like to know what to expect.
  3. Traded in Factory Continental Tires for Upgraded Set at Discount Tire

    Like others say, I had no complaints with the original tires on an Escape UNTIL they wore out and I replaced them with an upgraded all-weather tire. I discovered I had a different car with the better handling they gave on both dry and wet roads. You get what you pay for. I have an XLT with...
  4. Maverick hauling round hay bales

    Square bales are densely packed by a plunger while round bales are more loosely rolled weighty comparatively less.
  5. GMC Canyon Stuck on a Hiking Trail at 14,000 Feet in Colorado Has Been Recovered

    I'd like to see a video of how the Bobcat extracted the truck. I presume they had to get it turned around somehow to drive it back down. Not something I'd want to try to do--but as an Indiana flat-lander, I wouldn't have made it that far in the first place. There are a lot of Youtube videos...
  6. Off-Road park - Bundy Hill?

    Sounds like the green trails should be mostly navigable with your Mav. The possible 12" steps might present approach/departure angle problems and would need to be bypassed. But it appears there are also sand/gravel hills and open areas to play in. See Bundy Hill Offroad Recreation Co. on...
  7. Please help!

    There are used Mavericks--many only slightly used--availble through Carmax.com and Cargurus.com. You may be faced with inflated prices due to the market although prices seem to be coming down lately. I was watching for something while waiting to place my order for a 24 and wasn't willing to...
  8. First "unfortunately" email today

    Got the first of what I assume will be several "sorry" messages before mine is scheduled.
  9. 2011 Ranger rear ended during Maverick wait

    Also a 2011 Ranger driver, waiting on my Maverick. When the Ranger returned in 2015, I thought it should have been called the F-149.
  10. Need help in deciphering the last 6 digits of my 2024 Maverick VIN

    Do we know that Ford starts at A00001? I know some manufacturers start at A10001 or A00501 for whatever reason so you have to adjust to say it's the xxxxth one built.
  11. Need towing advice

    The towing capacity is determined from a rather involved test procedure specified by SAE J2807. This includes meeting certain acceleration, braking, and handling standards including a 11 mile climb up a specific hill in AZ in 100 degree temperatures. You can read about it at...
  12. Winter handling

    Biggest thing to remember is while FWD (and AWD) can get going in snow and ice better than RWD, they cannot stop better. Many newcomers quickly find themselves in over their heads when they have to stop.
  13. Maverick w/ 4K Tow Package towed 3 different trailers in 9 days over 3500 miles

    I'd say your reading gives overly conservative estimates. Ford has certified the 4K towing per SAE J2807, the vehicle tow testing procedure. The final test is called the Highway Grade / Davis Dam Test. It requires that the truck be able to tow its maximum trailer weight up a specific...
  14. I’m waiting for my close up Mr. DeMille: 2.0 Maverick with my custom design

    Upload it to Youtube or Dropbox and post the link here.
  15. Rotary Shifter not Idiot Proof (I'm an Idiot).

    I'll see your 4 on the column and raise you one. For a time IH had a 5 on the column.
  16. Keyless Entry Keypad Standard on Lariat?

    The list of changes for 2024 says the keypad was discontinued for 2024: https://www.mavericktruckclub.com/forum/threads/2024-maverick-order-guide-released-product-changes-list.34141/
  17. Latest 2024 Maverick Order Guide Released [Updated Monthly]

    It can be pried open and the battery replaced. I've done it.
