Whats more comical is you can use FordPass to lock/unlock your vehicle unless you lock that in the truck too
but then you have to carry your phone around and that sucks too. I hate my phone, I’m on it right now.

I know I'm super late here, but I have the stick-on keyboard on my 2019 Ranger. I absolutely, absolutely HATE IT

It looks terrible, the "feel" is off, and there is a delay because it's essentially a keyfob stuck to your door, just sending a wireless signal. I miss the wired, integrated keypad from, oh...EVERY other Ford vehicle I've ever driven.

These stick on keypads are universal to Ford products. They are simply a battery powered transmitter, like the keyfobs.

Ford Keyless Entry Keypad

That being said, I had this feature on a 2004 Explorer back in the day. I never used it except to verify the code that was written on the owners manual was in fact the right code. I'm not a fan of these because there is no security feature that limits how many attempts you can do to figure out the correct code. My 11 year old stepson was able to get in the locked Explorer in about 3 minutes by simply punching in codes until he got the correct one.

My tangentially related rant is we wouldn't want this feature if keyfobs have not become the size of hand grenades. My 2012 JK did not have keyless entry (or power windows or power door locks for that matter) so it didn't have a huge keyfob, just a normalish sized transponder key:

I never once wished it had keyless entry. Its kind of a moot point if the doors are never on ;)

Yes intelligent access comes with midpack.

It's pretty much two different ways of accomplishing the same thing. Although, as you said, with the keypad you can leave the keys inside.

Look at the keypad on any Ford made in the last decade. That's what you'll get.

Pretty useless feature in my opinion had a Ford that had it, never used it once in 80k miles.
Used mine quite a bit at the beach. And no, this isn't how its been done lately. My 2016 F150 and even my now gone 2009 Ford Flex have it integrated/hidden/padless into the black B Pillar.

It’s more of a courtesy to drivers behind you, so your tires don’t kick up rocks stuck in the tread. Some states, like Idaho, require them.

Mud flaps are great in snowy places or long gravel roads on vehicles that never really offroaded.
If you go through hard dry ruts, or over rocks they rip off fast.
Out here in the South West , they die quick.

I've been seeing on the Base model pre production models that they've all had the signature LED headlights. Haven't yet seen models with the other bland headlights. Is this normal?

I love keypads one thing I miss from back in the day when I had a 2002 Explorer! For me I just liked locking my keys in it never have to worry what I did with them! Not for everyone I def enjoyed the convience tho!

I’ve lived in the southwest for many years. The only time I’ve ripped off a mudflap is reversing into sagebrush.

As long as you’re driving forward there should be no reason for them to get torn off.

Drop off a sharp wash deep enough to touch the rocker panels to dirt, and the mud flap gets pinched, then torn off.
