definately need to address that. HOWEVER. Fully boxed frames are NOT upfitter friendly, and you need a certain amount of frame flex. If it don't bend, it breaks.

More torque on the frame from the wider rear is my speculation

Yeah that wheel left front wheel hanging in the air does look rather "no balls-ish"

Agreed, if you look closely the outer wheels are touching but the inners aren't, just like if you look the 250 was barely making contact in the rear

Why do they need to address this. Could it happen, im sure someone here it might of. I bet it would never happen to 99.9 percent of drivers on the road.

Whether that may or may not be true, the fact is that it was caught on film and even worse on a viral video.........so either way Ford needs to come up with some kind of answer for it

I agree it does look bad, this video has been out since early this year and I don't think it hurt their sales, maybe. So I don't think ford will spend money on a new frame design just yet. I was more disappointed in the bumper sag. The ford got his tail whiped in all challenges that was done by GM.
