    A Pillar / Spotlight ????

    That is close to what I ended up doing. Spotlight did not want to come out, took it to a body shop and even they could not get it out so we cut it out. Replaced the moldings, plugged holes.

    "Best" tires for an Explorer Interceptor?

    Rear A/C controls on 2016 + Interceptor?

    Greetings! I am considering swapping my 2013 PIU for a newer model. My 2013 has separate controls for the rear air conditioning in the slot under the controls for the front A/C. The newer vehicles that I have looked at do not have the rear controls. Is this a change made by Ford or are the rear...
