Ford Will Halt All Production Of The F-150 Pickup

I've owned three F-150's over the years... BEST truck on the road! 

With key parts and components running very low, Ford is stopping production of its most popular and profitable truck, the F-150.

Stopping production leaves nearly 8000 workers temporarily laid off. "I think it's safe to say, we're going to see an impact over several days, but beyond that we can't say," said Joe Hinrichs, president of Ford global operations. "We will be down through the end of the week."

Two Ford plants are down due to a lack of components from Meridian Lightweight Technologies. An explosion and fire at Meridian's facility in Easton Rapids, Michigan, last Wednesday completely shutting down production of parts used in the dash board of the F-150.  Watch the full story below.
