~*~What the hell posessed Ford to!??!...~*~
As much as we love the engineers for building our trucks, sometimes you just have to wonder "what the hell posessed them to do that?!".
So, lets make a list of things on our pickups where you have to ask "WTH?!" when something is over engineered, simply ridiculous, or should have had more thought put into it from the factory.
I'll start by saying what the hell posessed them to use RED LOC-TITE on the 2010 Driver's side tailgate pin bolts?! I traded my Louvered tailgate for a 2010 (with camera, which I'll probably never use) yesterday, and the two T-50 Torx bolts holding the driver pin on took both of us (big guys, I'm 240 lbs, other guy was probably 260+) reefing on his 18" ratched in order to break those bolts loose! Why the hell woul you need RED loc-tite on those?!? I think blue, or at most green would have been more than sufficient!!!
On a side note, I have a much less "Grandpa-ey" tailgate now and am happy about that, and he was happy he had a louvered 5th wheel gate!
