What do you NOT like about your rig?

Simple......post some stuff about your truck that you don't like! DM over on the cummins forum posted a bunch of stuff about his Dodge mostly non-engine stuff and I thought it'd be interesting to see what the Ford fellas had to say! Probably be easy to number each gripe...

Here's what I thought about my 99
1. Cam position sensor! Most 7.3 owners will have this one atop their list!
2. Power door lock actuators....when one goes, they all go....
3. Metric 8x170 bolt pattern. Make's it impossible to buy any nice used rims that were on a Dodge or Chevy.
4. The little pocket bottem center of the dash that nothing every stayed in.

That's really the only complaints I had.....everything else was tip-top.....

Oh by the way, i've seen so many threads where someone has mentioned "thin" sheet metal on the dodge truck bodies.....well I went through one "hail" of a storm a couple weeks ago with golf balls raining on my rig and I have no dents.....

Come on Adam that's funny, you've gotta admit!!!

Ok lets see - to be straight up honest I've only had mine a year but the only thing that bugs me is the weight when I'm off road. You can feel that sucker sinking sometimes and I'm an Jeep guy so I'm not used to that. Course the wind doesn't blow me around when I'm on the highway either, so I guess it's give and take. I DO wish I'd got a few more gadgets - that's probably just the computer nerd in me though. Oh yeah I hate that I have a NON POWERED sliding rear window........other than that I love my rig completely.

lol, yeah I know you 6.0 guys are freakin fast!

I too wished I had a power sliding rear, I forgot to mention that as one of my gripes but then again I hardly ever had it open. Especially when the little knob on it broke off.......

Ummmmmmm, my gripes are all pretty small.

1. I can't reach anything under the hood without a ladder!
2. That little cubby that everything slides out of as soon as you take off.
3. Passenger seat is not powered (not my gripe, but passengers have griped)
4. SEATS NOT HEATED!!! (that was another $500 to have installed)
5. Only a 6 cd changer, could have used a 20!
6. Everyone thinks it's my boyfriends truck and I'm not even dating right now!


BTW Alan.... Nice JAB!!!!

Well here goes:

Not copying previously posted complaints, I'll just add to the list...

1. Fog lights cannot be on with high beams or just parking lights (2001)
2. No cup holders in the back seat (ext. Cab)
3. No coin holder on my center console option like on my '99
4. Power point is above the in-dash cupholder, so if ya got something plugged in....
5. Ditto on the rear window, CPS, bolt pattern
6. My drivers side window sometimes barely moves...
7. Everything in my passenger side mirror looks black and foggy when I accelerate

1. I had to sell my $10k camper at a loss because the bed was too deep, too long, and cab was too tall. So I had to spend more money and buy a 5th wheel.
2. My $780 a month payments.
3. My $780 a month payments.
4. Scared to tune it cause it cost $12 grand to replace.
