    Finally got the ‘22 Badlands off road!

    South of Saratoga Springs, UT. We went to five locations today west and south of Utah Lake. I easily made it up Little Moab!

    Air pump recommendations...

    2022 Badlands here... I have a small 12 volt Bonaire tire pump (see below) that I've had for several years. (Home Dept around $39) It's fed by a long cable that plugs into a 12 volt outlet. I have no idea what it's output is, but it's not much. Of course in my Badlands, I have both 12V and A/C...

    Ford's Prepaid Scheduled Maintenance Plan - changing oil earlier

    7 weeks now with my Badlands... and purchased the prepaid regular maintenance plan. The one I got was for the earlier of 5 years or 75,000 miles... 10 services. Using the Motorcraft Synthetic Blend here in the south Texas heat, I plan to change oil every 5,000 miles. I figure this will help with...

    I sure hope nothing nothing breaks on my new Badlands. SLOW SERVICE!

    I was at my Ford dealer yesterday to pick up an accessor. While there I was discussing oil changes with the service manager. He said that if I needed service (other than oil changes) it would take 3 weeks to get an appointment and then it would sit in the shop for 10 days before they looked at it!

    How to stop my Badlands from "waking up" every time I open a door?

    Is there any way to stop my Badlands from "waking up" every time I open a door. Dash comes alive... rocks transform into a bucking bronco... headlights come on (with fan) etc... seems like a lot of unnecessary activity when I just wanted to get my cell phone that I left on the passenger seat!

    Booked Austin Bronco Off-Roadeo

    I just booked a Saturday class at Bronco Off-Roadeo Texas (outside of Austin) for my 15 year old grandson and I on June 18. It's only an hour drive north of my home, so we'll make it a day trip.

    HomeLink trouble

    Anyone have trouble programming their Homelink button to work with their Genie garage door? I programmed my wife's new car a few months ago with no trouble. I can't get it to work on my new BS BL. I've tried both methods outlined in the manual and a HomeLink video from their web site.... 1)...

    Washed out screen...

    My infotainment screen is not very crisp... seems to lack contrast... looks sort of "washed out" like a slightly overexposed photo. I don't see any settings for the screen.

    How much extra for synthetic oil, at dealer or mechanic shop?

    If you are not changing your own oil... How much is your dealer or mechanic charging you for oil/filter change OVER the price of the Motorcraft synthetic blend?
