This morning driving into work had a near miss with Skippy. Hit the stop pedal real hard and turned to the left, front left wheel locked up. Now this was on a gravel road with loose stones on top. I was under the impression that this could not be done with an ABS system. I was in 4...

Picked up my new px 2wd a few weeks ago, and dropped it in to a local 4wd dealer who fitted a hard lid to it. Ford reccomended so i was expecting it to be bang on.
Few issues im not happy with and wanting to get other opinions.

Just putting it out there again to see if any more are having suspension issues like leaning to one side, not sitting level, wheel arch height, spring sagging, I know I am not the only one out there being told by ford that this is within specs.
As some of you will be aware there has been issues of people having flat batteries.
I have have been following this with keen interest as to ascertain if the Smart charge system is up to task of keeping battery charged correctly or not or if the battery itself is capable for the purpose intended....
Here is some pics of my XLT.
I had the dreaded clicking today from my Aircon/heater control settings so I visited my local dealer today to get it checked out.
It was immediately booked in for next Monday as it has become a Recall issue for the HAVC.
I was told Ford has just released the Recall from today so I imagine all...
