  1. I got your message with the info. I'll get a shipping label to you tonight or tomorrow. Thanks for the bar!
  2. Thanks. I'm in no hurry though, so don't put yourself out if you just want to hit the rack by the time you get home.
  3. I sent you a direct message earlier saying that if you'd tell me exactly how much the final package weighs and what the dimensions are, I can email you a shipping label can print out and put on the package. UPS or USPS, your choice.
  4. I'd actually like to put that on my tractor.
  5. You will almost certainly be unhappy with any sort of license plate light bar mount. They ALL vibrate and bounce because the license plate mounting points are not sufficiently rigid. The result is that the light flickers and vibrates sickeningly on the road.
  6. Damn, that's too bad. I'm waiting on your results before I start this myself.
  7. Someone posted a link to the install instructions for the OEM trailer hitch hosted on fordservicecontent.com. Unfortunately, that's not a website you can browse; you have to have the link to the specific document you want to download. Does anyone know how to ransack it to get the install instructions for the OEM block heater for a 2014 Connect wagon XLT? I've finally found the part number for it, but I want to read the instructions to find out where it's supposed to fit into the block so I can figure out if it's an engine-out job or not. Thanks!
  8. AVguy, did the trailer lights work when you tested them at your daughter's over the weekend?
  9. Roof Rack Damage?

    I re-looked at this thread to consider my racking options and I realized I have an answer about the dimples shown in the black roof: they're normal and caused at the factory. I look out a 2nd story window and see the top of my van a lot. My van has a dozen or more of those dimples down each trench at the sides of the van. They're small distortions caused when something on the inside of the body was spot welded to the roof skin.
  10. I looked into a VCM2 box last week or the week before. The knock-off version of the hardware are affordable but they aren't capable of doing anything by themselves. To get the laptop to authenticate the connection to the modules in the car, you have to have an IDS software subscription. The subscription is obscenely expensive. As far as I could find from googling, you can't reprogram any of the in-car modules without an IDS subscription because each module is individually cryptographically signed and can only be authenticated through the Ford mothership. It's one of the many, many consumer-hostile things Ford loves doing. The US needs to get off its butt and pass a national Right to Repair law to stop this stupidity.
  11. How can you tell if a van has SYNC?

    Yep, I entered my VIN, no it doesn't have any information, yes, that's the same function many other US Ford owners report as being wildly inaccurate.
  12. How can you tell if a van has SYNC?

    Nope, doesn't list any info at all. Googling it, there's threads in other Ford owners forums about how ETIS is euro-only and, on the rare occasions when it does list info about USDM cars, much of it is wrong.
  13. How can you tell if a van has SYNC?

    OK, found ETIS. Seems to have little to no data about my van. It looks like it's a UK thing as all the outgoing links are to ford.uk domains.
  14. Which awning is that?
