    Thanks for sharing that link! So funny thing that you bring this up. They oil had been changed by the dealership before I took ownership and I had the coolant and transmission fluids drained and refilled. I was going to have the rear diff done but the garage said it wasn't needed yet. I didn't know about the power transfer unit. I will have them look into it and get that done as well.

    I'm at just shy of 60k on the odom and I'm having my shop catch up on any/all maintenance since I need this baby to last several years.

    Depends. Personally ask Ford, however I would ask a transmisson shop because they will probably do it cheaper.

    Thanks for the tip! Ive learned that my local ford dealer is, well, lets just say they live on another planet when it comes to pricing.

    Ill check with the local garage i use and see if its something they can do, otherwise plan B is transmission shop!

    At this point, other than minor cosmetic things, no. I need the car to survive for me for the next five years ha!! I wouldnt mind a minor tune to hopefully improve performance/MPG but i dont know enough about the car yet to know what to do.

    New rims might be in order as they have some curb rash on them.

    Lol! I'm kinda in the same boat, i bought mine 2 years ago at the end of the month. I'll include some pics so you can see what i've done cosmetically. Very slowly starting to mod, as I want to keep mine for a while.

    Nice. New window tint is def in order. The previous owner did such a crap job. My concern is the rear defroster since its the worst. Im afraid it will stop working. :(

    I would do it if I didn't have a PP Sho. I was lucky the RDU, when I transmission was replaced I had them drain both the RDU and PTU and refill with Redline Lightweight ShockProof fluid. However, prior to that, I did my PTU myself. My write up about it is post 5 in the link. Pretty sure you read that though.
