The rear axle is black. That means that it is painted. It was the 2+ plus months sitting while they were road testing it God knows where and probably never bothered to clean them.

I do it all the time in my Ford and Lincoln vehicles.

Weather mode is designed to reduce throttle input in slippery conditions to make it easier to drive.
What's the trick? I had a SanDisk Ultra Fit CZ43 64GB USB 3.0 Low Profile Flash Drive that I formatted to FAT32 and put some MP3 files on and when I plugged it in in the console (under the sliding thing) the screen said it required too much power.

What the??? Any Ideas what I'm doing wrong??

I just pulled mine out of my vehicle to verify the specifics.

16G generic USB *maybe yours was too large? (Guessing)
FAT32
files are placed in a directory structure /Music/artist/album/song.mp3

Pretty sure all that directory structure isn't required, but it even works with all of that structure in place. I may have just copied them over using either Itunes or the MSFT audio player.

If this doesn't help, consult the sync specific manual or this link may help.

I just looked through my pictures. I took undercarriage pictures for the buyer when the truck was on the lift getting PDI'd. I can't tell from either angle if it's black or rust. But I thought it looked like all rust when I looked at it. I may just not be remembering correctly but I do remember it was very rusty.

I also see in the pictures that the front axles are very rusty. My 13' was the same way though

Steering wheel is misaligned. The truck doesn't pull when you let off the wheel but when I attempt to straighten the steering wheel to its centered position, it makes the truck pull left. (With or without lane assist active)

Drivers mirror vibrates while driving, passenger side mirror is solid as a rock. I've tried folding and unfolding the mirrors as the manual suggested but that still didn't fix the mirror vibrations.

I'm also getting wind noise from the drivers door/window area while driving at highway speeds. I checked the rubber gaskets around the door to make sure they are all seated properly and they look okay to me.

I also have significant surface rust on the rear diff, front cv shafts and other various unprotected steel components under the truck. The only salt/snow this truck could've been exposed to was while it was sitting/being tested in Dearborn. The front cv shafts have so much rust that its actually flinging the rust color onto the front shocks which is very noticeable on blue.

Minor stuff that I will be making you dealer aware of soon.
Build date?

The Raptor in the Town and Country video is the same way. Rust on front axles and rear end.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJU3a069O4A

@1:55 rust on rear end
@5:54 rust on front axle shaft and inner axle housing.

Thats how our trucks in NY look if you go threw some heavy salted winter driving and never wash it off.

That was not a rude or provocative statement, it was a harmless joke. Also you are inaccurately paraphrasing my statement.
