This has been an on going battle! It's hard to say whats considered abuse and what driving activity is the truck built for! It appears the guy that had this type of truck were doing some wheeling That is not out of the characteristics of what it was built for. Bottom line, they exposed a weakness. If the truck was meant for off road then they must specify what type of offloading before the purchaser will sign the deal. However; since this is a case of many people using the truck for the same purpose and having the same issues? Then FORD and the owners need to come to an agreement of a shared cost of the fix, with giddiness for the use of the vehicle. I know of a Land Rover dealer ship that actually takes a group of new owners and shows them how to effectively wheel with their new trucks. Why don't Ford do the same! That is called service and protecting its self from problems like these.
