I think that Mike and Eric should walk in the doors together and everyone else behind them and show them how much more power and dependable the trucks will be with their tunes and how warranty should over look tunes from sct,spartan, and h&s.. LOL

I don't own a 2011 but someone whos going should tell them to modify the chassis a bit. like using 60k psi steel. I like the chassis design but not how ford is using only 36k psi steel while dodge is using 50k psi steel and chevy is using 60k psi steel. By upgrading to 60k psi steel with the already standard 6.7mm thick chassis should make it the strongest in its class. Also they should fully box the front section a little more but not the whole entire frame rail because a chassis needs to be strong but also needs to be able to flex. By using the 60k psi steel and a bit more of a fully boxed chassis should raise the tow capacity by quite a bit leaving dodge and chevy in the dust. Chevy and dodge made the mistake of having fully boxed chassis's because they can't flex while going over rough terrain and towing heavy loads which could cause them to crack while Ford's flexs and absorbs vibrations.

I would agree that Ford can make some improvements in the chassis area along with further engine/transmission refinements that you would expect as any product is developed in the real world. I'd also like to see a larger fuel tank as a factory option. I'm hoping that some of these will make it into the 2012 MY so that I can/have to pull the trigger on a new F350 KR.

OK guys! I got the phone call from ford and I have an appointment on Nov 6th to spend 2 hours with the engineers who design these 2011 trucks.
So,if anyone has anything reasonable and legitimately that they can improve these 2011 let me know and i'll do my best to present them. I'm very happy with the truck and have no issue with it beside the wear on these Michelins(20 in wheels)
This is what they said " No kids,pets, spouse or friends...bring your truck and there will be a ride along ....at the end of our appiontment they will present you with a check for $150.00 for your time.

no real complaints, x2 on fuel tank size. Also wished they offered a more luxurious interior. Just a bunch feels a little cheap for a $60k truck. Better thicker leather, nicer headliner and some either real wood or less 'fake' stuff. Like I said def no complaints in performance

Please talk to them about chassis improvements. I like everything about the truck but it seems to be lacking the the chassis design. Both chevy and dodge has made huge improvements in the strength of steel they use (dodge 50k psi steel)and chevy (60k psi) and ford super duty only has (36k psi). Also the competition has used alot more reinforcements and fullyboxed their frames compared to the ford super duty. from what i understand the psi rating means the amount of wieght or force it takes to stretch the medal. Ford has technically been using the same chassis since 2005 only changing the front design to accomadate each new motor design (08, 11) and people who use ford super duty, work their trucks harder then the competition. the only difference between the 99-04 and 2005 chassis is the frame was thickened by 10% and fully boxed the front section by about a 1.5' feet more then the 99-04. Also say something about how the dana 80 only has 11.25" ring gear while the dodge and chevy 1150 AAM has a 11.5" ring gear. If ford had dana upgrade it by a 1/4" inch it should increase towing due to the increased leverage and being able to turn the axle quiker. I just want ford to be able to produce the best pickup on the market in every way possible.

Please ask them why they didn't go with a 9th injector for the DPF regen.

Why can't I know EXACTLY how much DEF I have in my tank and I think they are working on a manual regen and a light that stays on during regen.

Just a few other suggestions!
