Hey Y'all

Quick Question. Is anyone having problems with their Adaptive CC when changing out their Stock Wheels and Tires? Adding a Lift??

I've heard there may be issues with that and wanted to confirm before adding it to my build. Thanks
 
I figured if anyone would know it would be on here. Thanks for your response. Now if I can just get forscan to work on my Mac. Ha
On my mac, I use VirtualBox (free download) with a free Windows 7 image and it works great with Forscan.
 
I believe adaptive cruise control can be aimed/recalibrated by the dealership. IIRC it’s part of the Ford winch install process, though many folks have installed the winch on their own without that calibration and I haven’t seen any adaptive cruise issues come up here on the forum.

Also haven’t seen anyone report issues with adaptive cruise from larger tires or a lift, but if you encounter any getting that aiming/recalibration could help it.

Thanks for the info.. My manager at my dealership asked me if I was going to do a lift and upgrade the rims/tires on my build. When I told him i was going to, he cautioned me not to get the Adaptive CC because they saw a couple of issues in the new f150’s with that. So I’m doing my research..

It doesn’t stand to reason that a lift/tires could cause unresolvable problems for Adaptive CC. And ACC is one of the few must have options on this truck, IMO. So don’t be talked out of it.
 
I have no troubles with it. I doubt there is anything on forscan that will help adjust it. The dealer shop has to calibrate it.
I am also a MAC guy and got a $200.00 pc lap top for forscan. There is often a delay and translation issues when using a MAC. The pc format is great with forscan. With the translation to a MAC it may have issues depending how deep you get into it.
 
Thanks for replying. Just got word from the dealership I can’t add ACC because I have a build date of 8/23 and VIN. No big deal. And yeah, think I may just get a cheap PC. That’s a hard one though. Mac guy. Ha

The dealer can still change your options despite having a build date and VIN, they just cannot change your trim level.

 
I installed a new ranch hand bumper including grille guard and winch. Relocated the adaptive cruise sensor and tested in my neighborhood. Worked perfectly. Took it on a 1400 mile trip this week and the module performs flawlessly in highway driving including congestion.
 
You will be fine doing a lift, wheels/tires. We've been doing these on Raptors for years. We also do a lot of relocating brackets behind the grille and things like that. Every now and then you need to do a DIY recalibration with Forscan or possibly at your dealership. But frankly, I really wouldn't worry about it with doing a lift with wheels/tires.

Thanks for in insight Nick...
