    Yakima EXO Cargo/Bike Carrier System setup

    There are several aftermarket 2” hitch receiver options for the Mach E. I have the Torklift, which is on the spends end because it’s made with stainless, but it was the only one available at the time. I believe that Drawtite and Curt have started selling their own versions. I ordered directly...

    Yakima EXO Cargo/Bike Carrier System setup

    That sound like quite the trip! I’m only going maybe 90 miles to Cape Disappointment in SW Washington for my trip. Although I do intend to use the setup when/if I drive down to visit family in LA. Have a great trip.

    Yakima EXO Cargo/Bike Carrier System setup

    I haven’t really used the setup for any significant trips yet, this is all in preparation for a camping trip in August. That said, I did put it all together and drove to Portland, OR (about 100 miles total) to test it out with the cargo box on the bottom and the basket on top and run some other...

    Yakima EXO Cargo/Bike Carrier System setup

    What kind of trailer do you have? I haven’t trailered anything and not really planning to do so to avoid warranty questions. But never know after the warranty is out …

    Yakima EXO Cargo/Bike Carrier System setup

    No. But… I recently started having issues using the foot activation. I read others here to say that the foot activation was discontinued, it has me wondering if it got deactivated by a software update.

    Yakima EXO Cargo/Bike Carrier System setup

    Bought a house recently that need some fix up, so yeah I do need a truck. Hauling wood and other stuff in this car is sometimes a pain and has added some wear to the car. I’m actually thinking of the Chevy when it comes out (I had an Avalanche back in the day and the mid gate is something I...

    Thanks! I’ll be trying out the whole setup during a weekend camping trip planned for mid-August.

    Yakima EXO Cargo/Bike Carrier System setup

    https://www.etrailer.com/Custom_Fit_Vehicle_Wiring/Tekonsha/TK24VR.html Previewed the process by reading this post from MrToejamm here and this other one here (note this description uses a generic harness and not the one I linked to, but was good for some additional pictures).

    Yakima EXO Cargo/Bike Carrier System setup

    I’ve posted some of this earlier in other threads, but I took advantage of the recent REI Anniversary sale to round out my cargo carry system and thought it would be ok to share as its own thread. I have the EXO- -SwingBase (base rack) -TopShelf (riser) -GearLocker (cargo box, lockable)...

    Recall work only to be done by selling dealer?

    Yeah, but “prioritizing” is different than telling me to go elsewhere altogether.

    Recall work only to be done by selling dealer?

    I was talking to Landmark because someone has posted a favorable impression for having them do the recall work (this is for the roof and windshield).

    Recall work only to be done by selling dealer?

    One other thing I’ll add to this thread is he sort of made it sound like a recent development. That said, and giving the benefit of the doubt, I’m sure his response would have been different if I’d said my dealer was somewhere that wasn’t just 5-6 miles away.

    Recall work only to be done by selling dealer?

    So this is a new one on me, and I haven’t read anything like this on the forums. I just (finally) tried to schedule the safety recall work at a dealer the Portland, OR area, but not the one I bought it from. The service guys just called me back and said they can’t do it, because the word from...

    Next-Gen CarPlay to Have Full Vehicle Experience

    Sorry, I can’t find the thread(s) where the Ford exec talked about major Sync update coming. But watching Apple WWDC Keynote and they have a whole section on Apple’s upcoming update to CarPlay that shows mock-ups of CarPlay basically taking over nearly all the screens with a completely...

    PPF, Ceramic Tint, Draw-tite hitch, T-one tow light harness, and Hyperdip

    How/where to you have the connector sir when not in use? Zip tie it to the hitch somehow? there doesn’t seem to be a lot of attach points

    PPF, Ceramic Tint, Draw-tite hitch, T-one tow light harness, and Hyperdip

    You certainly don’t have to get back under your car on my account. I just wanted to be sure it mounts outside the passenger enclosure. Trailer wiring kits I’ve installed on my Subarus were inside, under the cargo area panels, and the trailer wire would be routed through the hatch to the...

    PPF, Ceramic Tint, Draw-tite hitch, T-one tow light harness, and Hyperdip

    My harness arrived from e-trailer yesterday. But before I get started, how did you splice into the 12v connector? did you use one of those press fit connector, or just crimp onto the terminal of the socket? Or something else? Also, doing a little exploration underneath and wondering how did...

    Having Trouble Finding Dealer to do Warranty Windshield/Roof Reseal

    My first Ford, too. Which dealer in Salem? I can’t help but think the only option is to go to somewhere in PDX for now. It feels like there isn’t enough of these cars in this area that a dealer is going to think it’s worth their while. And maybe some resistance to change.

    Portland/Vancouver - Windshield/PanoRoof recall service

    Reviving this thread: is(are) there a dealer(s) in the Portland/Vancouver (and Salem) area that have developed a history of performing the recall work?

    Having Trouble Finding Dealer to do Warranty Windshield/Roof Reseal

    Did you ever get a resolution to this? I bought mine when I lived in the PDX metro area (Sherwood) and now live in Keizer. Your post kinda affirms my thoughts that smaller market like Salem means the dealers aren’t as prepared to deal with the MME. I know Damerow in Beaverton has sold a lot...
