    I bought a new 2010 Ford F350. I had them build to spec. I paid the $400 to upgrade from a set of all seasons to a set of all terrain. They sent me a set of continetal contitact TR these are not all terrain they are lux all season. I fought with ford canada for 2 weeks to even look at the sight or call the company to ask about them they told me they have given me my final answer, they are not calling me back and those are the tires I am getting because the book says they are A/T. Now at 1500KM my transfer case is shot and they want to rebuild it and take my truck for a 1 week minimum.
    Built Ford Rough:laughing:

    My Ford transfer cases have been bulletproof, and very few complaints are ever heard about them, so I'll assume yours is a fluke.

    As for the "all-terrain" tires. Where have you been? That's been going on for over 5 years... It's no secret that when you buy a new ford, you drive it directly to the tire shop, don't pass go, don't collect $200... :rolleyes:

    no nothing to do with the tires. It was shot from the first day i put it in 4X4 so it came from the factory like that. But I have to lose my truck because they want to rebuild reather than replace

    If you ordered it with the 20 inch rims it would have came with good year wranglers for tires, did on my brothers truck. I have the 18 inch with the continetal's, they are not that great in the snow.
