    Shedding light

    Hmmm - I just went to HR myself and input 2018 XLT with halogen headlights, and at least one of them came up as a HB3/9005 bulb. Can't explain what you saw - so basically you have the wrong bulb and have to send it back for exchange?

    Has anybody tried one of these cupholder expanders? https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B08K6YJHT2

    Cupholder fell through console! Weird!!!

    This is what the cover looks like from the top - I believe it's functionally the same for all the trim levels (i.e. you remove it the same way). No screws holding it in place!

    Cupholder fell through console! Weird!!!

    Turns out this is probably not the disaster you think. In my case, the damage was that all the plastic pins that hold the bases onto the two cup holders had broken, and the clear plastic "light guide" had broken in half. I've repaired mine - mostly. 2 things might still go wrong for me: - I...

    Cupholder fell through console! Weird!!!

    Happened to me as well about 2 weeks ago. Brought it in yesterday. Tech didn't even try to disassemble the console or anything, just said "yeah it's broken - need to replace" and I now have a quote of $630 to fix (granted that's in Canadian Loonies, so a mere US$500). I haven't seen anyone...

    Anyone tow a 7000lb camper?

    My Keystone Cougar is 27' and GVWR of 7200 lbs. I'm always struggling to keep under the RAWR of the 2018 XLT (standard length), but that's the only real issue I have. I tow in the mountains all the time and power is just not an issue. I'm a 65 mph max kind of guy though so YMMV. Sway is...

    What air pressure are you running in your larger AT tires?

    I always keep all 4 at the same pressure, but I can't really justify that other than to say that the placard has all 4 the same so I don't mess with it... I suspect it doesn't really matter as long as the pressure is appropriate for the weight each tire is carrying.

    Aggravations, Ford's retained ownership.

    No, in my manual (for a 2018 it's page 69), it's clearly talking about the keypad. But, it's poorly organized - I think it's saying that you need the fob within 3' to program a new personal access code. In a section on the next page it talks about "Locking and Unlocking" where you just enter...

    What air pressure are you running in your larger AT tires?

    Hmmm, re-reading my post I should clarify somewhat. My tires are rated to 80psi for max load. When I say that they should be at 44psi to get the load rating, I mean that at 44psi they will carry the RAWR of my Expedition. I go to 55psi not because of load rating but for sidewall stiffness.

    What air pressure are you running in your larger AT tires?

    My Michelin LT tires should be at 44 psi to get the load rating, but they are a bit stiff at that, so like Fozzy I drop them to get a better ride (mine are currently at 37). But towing I'll put them up to 55 which helps quite a bit with the tracking feel of the truck.

    What causes the failure?

    Aftermarket Hitch Receiver?

    I don't believe that the 930 lbs hitch weight is a limitation of the receiver itself - it's more of a combination of payload plus possibly the dynamic behaviour of these shorter vehicles (compared to pickups) and the independent rear suspension not being as "firm" in some directions. Upgrading...

    Recommendations for clip on/detachable towing mirrors

    I have these too and like them. Minimal vibration, much easier than strapped-on mirrors.
