  1. Today
  2. I already own one of those,never again! So when it came time for the TC I checked.
  3. Yesterday
  4. Thanks for the search engine. None list 2014-2017 TC roof racks.
  5. What we have herah is a failure to communicate. The cheap alternative shown means I would have to remove and throw away the installed factory side rails, standard on the 2017 XLT. I just want a stock roof rack at a reasonable price.
  6. Actually, it works better for Mk1 which has round perforation. So whenever pulling from a roll of paper you need to be more cautious with the new model so it doesn't rip.
  7. Never thought of that mrtn! I can see using that for tissues, work towels, latex gloves, twine/rope.. etc... Tiller
  8. Boomerweps Here is a DIY roof rack posted here on the site.
  9. My favorite use for the parcel shelf:
  10. The 2018 Ford GT will be available in a new limited-edition Heritage theme honoring the GT40 Mark IV race car driven to victory by the all-American team of Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt at Le Mans in 1967. The car will feature unique interior and exterior color themes, and an exclusive wheel finish. View the full article
  11. To increase to 18's, 225/45R18 is usually the preferred size, and will give you a better ride than the 40 series 235's. However, the 225/45's are almost 3% too large in circumference when compared to a stock tire and the 235/40's are actually closer to the correct circumference IMO you would be less likely to bend a wheel with the 45's Don
  12. Fifty150: Nothing needs to be disconnected from the bottom side of the shelf shown in your first photo. I've marked the tabs on the top center piece on top of the shelf in your second photo. If you click on the very first thumbnail at the top of this thread, it will pop up a larger version that shows the center piece unclipped and flipped over so you can see how both sides of the tab clips are constructed.
  13. 40 is pretty standard profile index for performance tires.
  14. which makes a lot of sense....... Some cars require you to do things like jack it up, remove the tire, remove the wheel well............while others require you to remove the bumper, remove the grille, then remove the headlight
  15. Try this company's online parts search for used parts. http://www.lkqcorp.com/en-us/Inventory-Search
  16. Any advice on which tabs pop off, in which order, and/or if there is a certain way to pull or wiggle it out?
  17. I should have thought about that location. It will allow you to plug in whatever you want to charge, and keep it all hidden in the shelf. That way, you can leave your computer in the car to charge, and nobody will see it. Back in the dinosaur days, I installed USB ports in the center console of my Transit Connect where the OEM power port is located in front of the cup holders. A little more "conventional".
  18. A pal of mine fitted a new set of Advanti 18's wheels. He bought it from 4WheelOnline then installed a 235/40R18's tires. Looks really sexy, but a bit bumpy. I think the 40 series is a rare tire spec right?
  19. Last week
  20. Other than plugs? Can anything more functional be added/adapted to make it more useable?
  21. Yes, I truely missed my Sirius radio I had in my previous TC on the trip. The radio scan feature basically sucks. You have to hold the + or - button for a couple seconds to make it engage the search in FM mode. Then it stops on the first noise it finds, not necessarily a readable station. Bad for the driver to use. side issue: Trying every junkyard I can find for 2014 up TCs with roof racks, none yet. Can't even find wrecked TCs! Must be incredibly safe vehicles. When I get home, I'll have my local junkyard do a junkyard parts search through their network.
  22. My son is in Portland Oregon for an all week eclipse festival. He's sleeping in his TC and loving it. I heard on the news that the forest fire smoke may block viewing of the eclipse. Here in the St. Louis area we are in a moderate drought. The rains keep going north and south of us. With all the hype about the eclipse, it will probably rain that day. You know how it goes. We are in an area where we will, if visible, have a full eclipse. I don't get too excited about it. Now if the Sun came out at midnight, then I might be more interested.
  23. Awesome, thanks! Edit: Ah! Now I see that you have that bolt size mentioned in your thread, but under a picture caption. Missed that. Found them on fastenal.com.
  24. Good thread, thanks. I'm heading on a long road trip soon, California - Colorado - Utah - Idaho - Washington - Oregon - back to Cali. Looking forward for some road time in my 2017 LWB. Just finished up insulating the front cab area, added to the audio system with Hertz speakers, Rockford-Fosgate Amp, JBL subs, ready to roll. Renewed the Sirius subscription in case I get tired of my USB playlists. My tribute band is performing at the Colorado State Fair. Ready to rock! Good times!
  25. Yes will do thanks again!
  26. I used M10-1.50 x 70mm bolts. The fit but were longer than needed. M10-1.50 x 60mm would probably be closer to matching the stock bolts protrusion under the floor. I had to go to the local fastener supply store, not big box DIY store, and special order them. I got ones with countersunk heads that used an allen key for a smoother floor.
  27. Well, drove PA to UT, via Mt. Rushmore. Wrong travel time, Sturgis! 2464 miles, 38 hours travel time, averaged 63mph, averaged 26 mpg, all per trip computer. Includes tour to Rushmore, Crazy Horse, & Custer State Park with wildlife loop stopped by the buffalo herd in the road. Shorter, more direct route home. Expect a little higher average speed on the return trip.
