In regards to my GMC problems. Has to replace the brakes twice in 40000 miles. Also in same time period had to replace the fuel pump and starter. The drivers seat had to be replaced three times(power seat adjusters failed). All of this was covered under warranty(except brakes),but I got tired of having the truck in the shop and dealing with the service reps. With the seat they kept telling me that it was suppose to work that way. They didn't understand why I was having a hard time accepting that no power to a power seat was normal. So I decided to go back to a Ford. The new SD helped, along with the fact that I don't like the new GMC redesign.

I think the idea has merit, but the locations of the owners (CT, AZ, FL, MN, AK) make the get togethers a little difficult. I think Ken's idea of a web page makes the most sense if someone has the ability to host it.
Brutus... good luck in Alaska.... I plan on heading up that way next summer with a Lance camper on the back of my Super Duty. So far I intend to do the Southeast and the Kenai peninsula over a 6 week period.
Dennis4.... how long did it take after truck delivery for the blantke to arrive? Also I hope that doesnt mean that Ford has little confidence in the heaters:-)?
Lastly, It has been 21-27 degrees F here the last few mornings and I have not yet plugged in the engine heater. PS Diesel has started well. Does anyone know at what temperature you really should plug that rascal in?????

It would be nice if you could modify the Titles on the new topics you created. 462 should have the word "owners" in the title.
# 463 Should mention "delivery" or "lead time" in the title.

I've been told by a dealer in a Ford mailing list that the blanket is a gift that only goes to Lariat purchasers.

It took about 3 weeks for me to receive the blanket for my Lariat. And the heater is even better than your typical ford heater,in case you had any real doubts.

Mine is a "measly" XLT and I got a blanket. So it isn't just for you high class Lariat folks.

Ruz: Any reason to keep the two F-SD groups? They're basically identical these days. Why not merge 'em into one?

Since I brougth the idea of a Superduty Club up, I think the idea of a Web page is a good idea. The only think about the Web page is that there will be some out there who do not have access to a web page. But for overall success The Web page is the best.
Maybe we could get Edmunds to sponser this Web Page.
