  1. If you are talking to me, I will certainly keep this thread updated on progress of my 2018, here's the latest... There have been no updates since November 21st
  2. Brake Caliper Covers

    Looks good! I have a red one ordered, I like looking at red TC's How do you like your WeatherTech side window deflectors?
  3. Both Transits look great! So do your planes! I ordered a 2018 Race Red LWB Titanium in September. It's been built and was shipped on November 21st. No more updates since then. I'm looking forward to getting it and glad most everyone enjoys theirs.
  4. Hi Debspanial, I also live in Michigan, and ordered a 2018 Titanium wagon. I have a Ford Edge lease that expires on March 23rd 2018, so I left a 6-month cushion by ordering in September. My salesman before I ordered said, be prepared for a 6-month wait, and if it comes in earlier that will be a bonus and we will hold it if you like. Even though Ford thought 2018's might be built in mass in August, that might not have happened, but for sure the plant is running in full production now. The reason I say this, I know another fellow that ordered a 2018 back in May when you could first order one, his was built in October like yours. Here's where I am as of yesterday. As you can see, mine was ordered on 9/16 and built on 11/19. I have a hard time believing it will take another 4-months to get here, but, we will see. Good luck to both of us with our orders. 4 to 6 months seems normal, and at times a bit frustrating. Hang in there!
  5. tie-down rings

    Nice, just what I was looking for. Hope they are still there in the 2018. Thanks!
  6. In the newer wagon LWB, are there any tie-down rings inside with the seats folded? I want to secure my fridge/freezer with a cable.
  7. My Connect is in production with a build date of 11/17/2017
  8. Yes, they are great fridges. I'm using the cutoff voltage on High, works great and I don't have to worry about a dead battery.
  9. This is all great information, you two are having a good discussion on this subject, it is very interesting. The fridge/freezer I bought is an ARB Fridge Freezer 50 QT (10800472), supposedly one of the best. I bought it because it has three battery protection modes and draws very low intermittent amp draw. I'm currently using it in my 2016 Ford Edge with a regular battery. I've left the fridge running and set to 34 degrees F for 2 days without problem. It can go down to 0 degrees and make ice cubes. It hardly cycles on and off, quite amazing. But, I'm sure this is not good on a regular battery, so, this is why I want an AGM for my ordered Transit Connect. I'd buy an AGM battery right now for the Edge if I could pull it and put it in the Connect when I get it, but don't want to take the chance it won't fit. Here's the fridge/freezer and specs... They say it draws an intermittent 1.35 amps per hour. here's the three settings for the battery monitoring. I leave it on the safest setting of HIGH. On this setting it has never cut off yet. I have seen my battery at 11.9v, but my Edge still started with no noticeable degradation in cranking. BATTERY MONITOR MODE LOW MED HIGH Switch off voltage – 12V DC 10.1V 11.4V 11.8V Restart voltage – 12V DC 11.1V 12.2V 12.6V Here's the Fridge/Freezer and specs at the manufactures web site.

  10. Thanks Don, Looks like what I need! I'm a Sam's club member so that will work. I'm waiting for my 2018 Connect... Appreciated! Tom
  11. Has anyone replaced their under-hood battery with a high quality AGM battery? When I look online for 2016/2017 Transit Connect batteries it doesn't seem like anyone lists them, maybe the size is weird? I have an ARB Portable Fridge Freezer I'd like to run for short trips and I'd feel better with an AGM battery. At this point I don't want to add another battery, just upgrade the under-hood battery. If anyone has, what make and model? Thanks, Tom
  12. Ah, US and UK, and maybe more!
  13. I think the pins are only with the carpet option, it looks like you have a vinyl floor.
