Owner’s Log: 2015 Ford F-150 Lariat (12/2015 – 3/2016)


Welcome to the first update on the newest addition to my driveway, a 2015 Ford F-150 Lariat SuperCrew.  The truck is just starting the break-in period, with 2,300+ miles driven this quarter.  I’m getting used to the laundry list of new features, so this will be a longer-than-normal update.  Catch up first by reading my review (opens in a new tab), and then continue reading for the details.

Product Review: BAK Revolver X2 and BAK Box 2

BAK Revolver X2 - LogoSince 2012, when I bought the BAK Roll-X tonneau cover for my 2011 Ford F-150, BAK has redesigned their signature roll-up tonneau cover enough to call for a new name: Revolver X2.  In addition, they’ve released the BAK Box 2, a tool box which was designed to work with their truck bed covers, hence the dual installation and review post.  Continue reading for my installation and review of these two products.

13 Chrysler Employees Fired after Fox 2 Catches them Drinking on the Job

A Detroit-based Fox 2 reporter was tipped off to some startling activity going on at Chrysler’s Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Detroit, MI.  Last week, reporter Rob Wolchek captured several Chrysler employees drinking on their lunch break at a public park, as well as consuming what could be marijuana.  Not only did he and his camera crew catch them one day, but all week!  That just stuns me, with as much trouble as the automaker is in, it can’t afford to have people on the payroll who aren’t sober during their shift.  Chrysler apparently agrees, since they’ve now fired 13 of them, and suspended 2 more for a month without pay.  Read on for more details and the incriminating video and follow-up report.
