I'm not sure if it's just me, but I feel like the LEDs I have are really blue, but they match my DRLs, and they look the same as the newer F150/Explorer.. I guess I'm just not used to them just yet.
No complaints, huge upgrade over the stock halogens.
They may have a slight blue tint to them, but seem pretty white to me. Similar shade to an LED Explorer & an LED F150 that I've been next to at night.

And it's worked its way halfway across the windshield now. Need to price a replacement & see what my deductible is.

Is that Soundscreen glass like they used in the last generation? If so, it's prone to cracking once chipped.

Pretty sure it's soundscreen. On the back burner, along with pretty much everything else until the move is done.

Called Ford & Safelite yesterday just to get the full price cost. ~$400.
OEM was actually cheaper than Safelite.

Need to try to call my ins today & see what it is through them.

If you don't mind me asking, how much coin did she set you back.. the casa.
I guess wife's business really is booming! We're home shopping now ourselves.
I found a sweet house up in the hills.. real high overlook.. really nice but wife vetoed it.
I'm pretty bummed to be honest.. and the price is real good too.
She wants to spend a lot more.. and it's for stuff that doesn't really interest me.
Just want a nice chill spot.

Solar is hooked to the meter, cheaper electric bills. Business has been pretty good, though the move has thrown us off a bit.
Houses around here run high 200s to well over 700k. Neighborhood next to us has houses in the 600k-2M range Well outside out budget, for sure.

Oh, I know, I don't usually venture into H&G, so didn't think to start one there. Luckily, the house doesn't need much, so it'll be a slow update thread there.

Nothing new on the truck, but may have done my sunroof in yesterday.
It's always had a bit of rattle (common known issue with a TSB, the 2 panes rub & cause noise/rattle).
Usually, flip up to vent & then open/close will remedy it for a bit.

Auto-close wasn't working, would pop back open about 2/3 closed. Held the button to manually close it & got some awful sounding crunching noises. Have seen on the F150 forum that some trucks have broken sunroof tracks that have to be replaced.
Called the dealer, next available appointment: 11/13/17.
And, they don't do loaners, so have to figure something out. May have to chat with my salesman & try to get a '18 for a couple days.

Yeah, I think only their Lincoln customers get loaners. Us peasants have to rent/walk/shuttle/etc.

Our Ford dealer gives loaners, but, for something like that, I doubt it because you can still drive the car safely, blah blah blah.... that’s what Toyota tried to tell me about the faulty seatbelt in my old Toyota....

Seat belt was faulty and they said you could drive the vehicle safely?
