    I have a similar feeling. back end gets squirmy over bumps. upgrading to the bilstein 5100s fixes it.

    What's the consensus on the '18s with the 10 spd auto? There's some pretty good discounts on right now and I have the urge to switch vehicles again haha.

    I have had the 10 spd since october and put around 7000km on it. Driving around town and on the highway there has not been any issues (I do need that TSB for the rattle) and did a trip down to great falls in December. No issues at all and mine is paired with the 5.0 If I launch from a light it wants to shift rather quickly (reduced a bit with sport mode) but it's not something I do often. Other then that it's not bad with the 3.73 gears. That Sync 3 system and the horrible nav maps, that is a different story.

    i have that with the EB and have no complaints. I did a ton of reading on the f150forums before i bought and the guys that have the 6spd hate the 10 spd(its also from a quick test drive typically) and the guys that had the 6spd and went to the 10spd love it. Theres a lot of talk about it being jerky from trying to find the right gear but ive never noticed anything like that unless im in sport mode

    10 speed auto is fine. It's verging on a CVT really. Skip gears all the time.

    I have 12K kms on mine and no issues. It's smoother than the 6-speed in my 2010 that was constantly clunking into 1st from second when slowing down.

    thats probably because most people on those forums are retarded and feel the need to drive in sport mode all the time.

    Thanks guys. I had a '13 & '15 with the EB motor. Haven't taken a 10spd out but noticed the deals recently on the 18's and it has me thinking about it again.

    Love the 10spd so far, sooooo much better than the 6spd in my 15' Sierra SLT. The gear changes are imperceptible, and best of all it's very quick to skip a few gears if you need to accelerate more briskly.

    If you do end up wanting one and they have it at Cam clark LMK. They offer a $700 referral fee and id be glad to pass that all to you. When i got mine it was from a buddy referral too and my buddy said he didnt want any of it so the sales guy called him to verify and they took it off the sale price. Easy $700

    Did a ricer mod

    It was bugging me that the only yellow looking halogen bulbs on the whole truck were the license plate bulbs so I swapped in some LED's

    Prices are in USD but the company is actually out of Vancouver. It's where I got mine.
    Just a heads up to anyone who's looking at getting an OBDLink MX, Amazon had it this morning for $120 CAD w/ Free Shipping. Usually it's $176.
    Otherwise the link 94boosted posted would be your best bet.
