Too much weight/strain on the system, to meet quality targets.


6.2 liter versions, by the way, don't have electric power steering. So go buy a Raptor...

lol, for that pricetag ill go buy a 1 ton.

Id imagine with a high amp alternator and dual batteries, it would work, but there goes the warranty. I imagine ford will come up with a solution in a plow prep package eventually, but until then i am going used or with a gmc/chevy 1500 depending on the deal i can work out. Talked to a friend who sells GMC and things are looking good, not quite as fancy as the ford, but so long as the payments are close to 350/mo and i dont have to worry about fixing shit, itll work...
