    Somewhere I saw a product that replaced the side fixed glass with a hatch for accessing the back of the rig. I neglected to bookmark the thread and now can't find it. Anyone know where it is on the site? Thanks, Kilgore
  7. Give a shout out to your dealership if they honored MSRP pricing

    Very pleased with Bud Clary Ford in Longview WA. They placed my order in July 2021 and honored their commitment for MSRP and no ADM when I took delivery last Friday. Definitely would deal with them again.

  14. How important is it to you that this is a Ford product?

    I could care less who made it. Quality, fit, finish, reliability and cost makes my decision.

    Appears our Choo Choo made it over the Cascades and has departed Seattle heading south. Mine is probably being unloaded at the pdx intermodal yard at the Port of Portland. Thinking port of Tacoma for you guys.
  17. Possible VHF/UHF ham radio roof antenna mount?

    Looked at it, but where would you run the coax? Don't see a clean obvious solution. I probably will end up running fender mounts for the v/uhf antennas. Still trying to figure out where to put the HF screwdriver antenna. 73, WB6AGE
