  1. Hope none of you need to visit a dealership anytime soon

    Digital system do provide a lot of benefits - but they also have a very bad downside. With paper, you always have a backup (unless you have a fire or flood). With digital systems you can lose EVERYTHING in the blink of an eye if things are done correctly. And since there is no manual system...
  2. Average life of the stock battery?

    5 years and 2 months for me - still going strong. I've not had any indication the original battery was failing - yet. I know it is coming, though.
  3. Hope none of you need to visit a dealership anytime soon

    This is the downside to everything going digital. It is great until it isn't...... And security always takes a back seat until something like this happens. It will be interesting to see how long it is down for.
  4. Ranger - why buy midsize?

    What? In 30 years we will all be using flying cars that fly themselves and run on water! :LOL:
  5. New FordPass app just sux, literally worthless to actually use.

    Who thought that was a good design? Wow..... incredibly inconsistent and confusing. I just checked and I cannot see it via the website either, but can see it in the app. Ugh.... I also just realized that the ONE visit it had to a dealer isn't there any longer..... It just keeps getting...
  6. New FordPass app just sux, literally worthless to actually use.

    I was not able to add receipts for my latest service on the website, but my prior receipt images are still there. I can see them from the app.
  7. I test drove a Ranger Raptor yesterday....

    Where does all the weight come from? The engine would be a bit heavier, but is it the performance suspension? That is a LOT of weight....
  8. Loyal to Ford Trucks

    I've said many times a PHEV would get me to trade, but at this point, I think it would have to be a PHEV with 4 doors and a 6' bed (which seems incredibly unlikely). My truck is paid off, and I just don't see much new available that would entice me to upgrade, plus I like the look of the 5G...
  9. 2019 Ranger Technical Shop Manuals

    All the files in that folder in mine are zero length (empty). There are a number of them like that unfortunately.
  10. 🎉Drive Down Memory Lane with Dad: Share Your Best Rides Together

    My best memory of my dad regarding rides (he wasn't much into cars or home improvement or mechanics or anything), was when the two of us did a road trip across the country. He had a POS Chevy Citation - it had the speedo that only went to 85. We were somewhere in the middle of Montana I think...
  11. I know this kind of topic is frowned upon but....

    Here is the source survey: https://www.resumetemplates.com/1-in-4-gen-zers-brought-a-parent-to-a-job-interview/ And the "bring a parent to the interview" was NOT vague at all - it had 4 different "flavors" - the 26% was "Physically sat in the interview" - which is what astounded me. 37%...
  12. I know this kind of topic is frowned upon but....

    I did do a quick browse of the source of the data and while I didn't look deeply, it did look reasonably well sourced - enough that it makes me believe the data is reasonably accurate. Your side story to me is a completely different thing. It is one thing to ask your parents about job changes...
  13. New FordPass app just sux, literally worthless to actually use.

    I was able to add the service thru the website but it had no option for receipts that I could see.
  14. New FordPass app just sux, literally worthless to actually use.

    But you can't attach receipts anymore - it is better than nothing, but it was better when it was in the app for sure.
  15. I know this kind of topic is frowned upon but....

    I have no words...... I can't even begin to think when coming to an interview with your child would be considered appropriate - driving them to the interview? Maybe. But sitting in the room DURING the interview? Wow. When I see stuff like this I always think - "what is the kid going to do...
  16. 5G vs 6G Ranger pricing nuts or just me?

    Yeah, prices RARELY fall. The other thing that makes it seem so bad I think is the dollars involved. Percentage wise it is significant, but when you have vehicles that cost so much to begin with, it makes it that much worse - if that makes sense to anyone else except me. I remember cringing...
  17. 5G vs 6G Ranger pricing nuts or just me?

    This really drove it home for me - just how much prices have gone up. I put in the sticker price for my truck from 2019 (not what I paid, but MSRP): In 5 years time, inflation has increased the price by over $10,000. When I priced out a similarly equipped '24 (couldn't do it exactly, but as...
  18. No tranny dipstick? Aftermarket?

    The FitzStick is a braided hose that is pre-bent with shrink wrap to keep the shape - I'm probably describing it poorly - it fits in perfectly and is pre-marked - it is very accurate. It looks like it came off the assembly line. You absolutely won't be sorry you bought it.
  19. New FordPass app just sux, literally worthless to actually use.

    FYI it worked for me this morning. Maybe try it again and see if it works now. I'm not impressed with the new app honestly. To me it looks slightly different but the old format was more intuitive. (maybe except having to hold down the button to do a remote start - that was kind of weird).
  20. New FordPass app just sux, literally worthless to actually use.

    It worked for me this morning however you cannot upload scanned receipts any longer. It also showed up in my FordPass app almost immediately.
