Joined the PS Nation

Mornin,

I have joined the ranks of the baby Power Stroke Nation.

2019 Showroom pretty Magnetic 502a Spec Lariat 4x4 as of Thursday last week... Traded out on my 2016 2.7 Eco Lariat.

So far I am enjoying, though mainly city driving since purchase. does ride out nice on the minor exit to exit jaunt on the highway.

Hoping to learn a few things from the more experienced Diesel group.

Not really interested in the rolling coal aspect.. but will be hunting for the eco-side of the house .. tips and tricks to get over the EPA rating.... without cutting off my right foot.

Thanks,

B.

Sticker yada yada...

Glad to have a new member on the forum. How are you liking the build quality on your seats? I heard some F150's are having more than average wear going on.

I've noticed some more than average wear on my King Ranch driver seat as I have a few nicks on the edge of the leather that I have no idea what caused them. They are minor, but my 2010 King Ranch seats seemed to have been of better initial quality.

I have attached a photo of the minor flaw I have in my driver's seat. I encircled the problem area with a green circle. Just a handful of spots where it seems the top layer of the leather somehow got scuffed off. Not sure what I did to make this happen.

I know on my 2010 KR that my woman scuffed the coloration off the leather of the passenger seat over time by rubbing bling-bling back pockets on the leather, you know, those fancy back pockets on women's jeans with the studded fake diamond designs. I told her no bling-bling jeans allowed in the new 2018 KR!
