I was just about ready to send Chris a PM about his truck. I see the 5.0 is the largest V8 they offer in 2015. Maybe we can talk about it in the Mojave....
PM coming in.

How ya doing Chris? Naw, this is a simple house maintenance we've been doing for, what, 30 years. It's an older place in AV that requires such. We go there, do what may be needed, then sit around and leave. If we have time, we'll shoot. But, probably not. Hopefully we can, but, we'll see.
An MLC shoot is looming.

Tom was just testing the waters....

Hey Chris, what engine do you have in your F150?

My truck has the best engine Ford has ever made: the twin-cam, four-valve V8 "Coyote". 5.0 liters. 2016 model year. Advertised 385 HP/387 lb/ft. The aluminum-bodied (2015+) F150 with this engine is amazing (as are the twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 and the 2.7 twin turbo V6 EcoBoost engines).

[Yes, the V6s all have twin-cam cylinder head designs, but this Coyote V8 with the same architecture reminds us of the famous Cosworth DFV. No other American truck maker offers an engine like this]

Coyote 5.0 V8 Design and Development

Beginning in late 2017 and into 2018, the F150 variant of the Coyote had oil consumption issues. Rather than use iron cylinder liners in the alloy block, Ford started (effectively-) 3D printing the liners within the block castings. The bore liners were thin to begin with but when printed they are only like .050" thick. Apparently they didn't get the rings/bore finish right.

My 2016 doesn't use a drop. If you want the V8 I'd look for a '15, '16 or lightly-used '19 or '20. The Coyote 5.0 was offered in the F150 as early as m.y. 2011... but those are steel-bodied trucks weighing almost 700 lbs heavier than the equivalent body style '15+ trucks. That said, I wouldn't be mind owning a '14 if it came down to it.

blah blah blah

Put it this way: I love this dang truck. See what's posted on Ford's Certified Pre Owned webpages (I think it's a dealer program, so all trucks are listed according to dealership). It's how I found mine in April of '17 but I had to look through 120 trucks to find it. Everything available had the one of the three V6s in them (the third being the naturally-aspirated 3.5 [3.3 beginning in '17]).

I’m quite a few years out of date about the newer generations of domestic trucks, but I will say with conviction that the truck that Apples drives is the cleanest, best cared for vehicle that I’ve seen anyone daily drive, bar none.
It is cleaner that all the fire apparatus I used to operate and maintain, over a long career.

Why, thank you, Mr. Splithoof. That is indeed a compliment, and as you can attest it does see off-highway travel.

It does get cleaned up from time to time but right now it's covered in santa ana-blown dust and springtime pollen, all mixed together with coastal dewfall into a nice surface crust.



I do clean the glass before I drive it (professional habit), just about every time I drive it, though.

I'd like to join!

I have a Marlin 1895 Guide Gun, Marlin 336, Henry H001 (to gift to my son when he is of age) and not a lever, but a Henry pump action .22 that my dad gifted to me.

If it helps with my application, I proposed to my wife inside the Lava Tubes in Mojave. Need to get back out there again.

Must have had temporary brain damage. I still have the Winchester 88 so I'm back in the club!

FYI the trigger is smooth and she shoots sub MOA.
