While I understand your frustration...I'm flabbergasted that you want to hold a corporate entity accountable because your dealership and more so your sales guy screwed you. Ford is clear with their rules governing the program and your dealership ineptitude should reflect directly on them. I'd...
Redland is right, in layman's terms. It provides a noticeable difference when under load. I've hauled an 18' dual axle trailer several times and could immediately tell when I hadn't activated the mode. The truck behaves much better with it on. I'd suggest cycling it on and off under different...
Yeah, I've gone through this from the beginning. Ford actually replaced my DS spring under warranty because it was 1" off. I have the shims and all and it's better, but still not how I feel it should be; I haven't pressed the issue further because I knew I'd replace the springs anyway.
Sounds like your dealership doesn't know what they're talking about. Having a tune on your truck, Ford Performance or another company, does not automatically void your warranty - ever. Ford has to prove that the tune caused whatever damage you're trying to have warrantied. They would go to Ford...

Perhaps knowing what it is that you're trying to secure will aid in helping you to find a solution short of chopping your truck up.
Hi Ray, while you may get an answer, you're on the forum of the newest 5G Ranger, 2019 and up. I'm positive you'll have much better success and a ton more answers on the appropriate forum. Good luck to you, sir.
I'll say this - the transmission is an engineering feat and overall excellent. The occasional mismanagement of the computer to control gear selection would in no way affect my decision to buy another vehicle with the same transmission. IMO.
