Nice truck! My colorblindness is kicking in. The previous picture it looked brown, but in this one I'm seeing grey. What color is it?

Hey wait a minute... are those 20's? I didn't think you could go off road with 20's..... :rolleyes:
It’s brown, kind of a chocolate hue I suppose. The 20’s are my first and not my favorite. My previous 2011 model had 17’s which I preferred all around. I just took what was on it and couldn’t justify replacing them. They do fine off-road...I also run 50lbs full time, on and off interstate and mud all day.

I didn’t receive a recall on it. Just started on last change and will look into it. Thanks.
Usually a TSB is just saying we know of an issue and a repair, but not to the extend of a recall yet.. What year and engine? I can look up pretty quick.. for a 2012 with the 5.3 the TSB number is 10-06-01-008M

Yep. Had a couple TSB's on my truck but no warranty coverage. I'm still miffed at Ford over that.

Yep, there is a TSB...this is TotalBS, in my opinion. "Excessive Oil Consumption". Others have told me about this happening over 100k. I'll probably just keep adding a qt between changes I guess.

It made a difference on 2 of our customers vehicles, and offering a bit of help. Your choice, I have over 140k on my 5.3 and doesn't use or leak a drop. I am also a 30 plus year ASE Master Tech, so I do all my own repairs.

Sorry, my TBS joke fell flat. I appreciate the info and expertise. Its a 2015 5.3 with 130,000. No leaks, just seems it’s using a qt every 2-3,000 now. Its been serviced with Penn synthetic since it was new.

No problem. Unfortunately per TSB 01-06-01-011K that is within the parameters of acceptable oil consumption "0.946 liters (1 qt) in 3200 Km (2000 miles}" If your consumption just started out of the blue, it i possible your PCV could have failed, pretty inexpensive part to replace.
