    Wow impressive on the mileage on your K02s. I got right at 40k out of mine. Anyways, I had the Recons put on my ‘19 last week, have 50 miles on Them now. For those who are wondering, the tires are very quiet, very little noise when new, zero thrum. My K02s were increasing in perceptible...

    Ford engineers have sick sense of humor. Oil change

    Same issue with messy oil drain. Agree with others, Fumoto quick release drain plug is the way to go. it’s high quality, won’t spring loose and they give you a locking tab for added insurance. I have used spring actuated drain plugs for decades. Never had one accidentally leak. You know...

    Shudder / vibration while stopped in drive?

    Has anyone tried increasing rpm’s at idle by 100-150 to see if this is enough to overcome the shudder when under load? Trying to connect the dots. If the shudder is due to AC load as others have suggested, would the extra rpm’s resolve or just make it worse? I have been working with...
