Just wanted to say good bye to the list.  There are two fewer F-150's in
this world.  A fellow came flying through a major intersection that had lost
electricity in the ice storm and smashed my truck last week--he seemed
oblivious to what was happening.  His '99 F-150 looks pretty bad, and my '91
is definitely totalled.  Thanks to my seat belt I literally walked away.  (I
didn't want my wife driving to pick me up in that mess and walking a few
miles seemed the safest option.)  The other driver and his passenger were
not so fortunate and went to the hospital.  I imagine they would have fared
better had they been wearing seatbelts.  Relying on air bags without using
your seatbelt is not wise--particularly if you stike anything after the
first impact when the airbag is already deflating. They hit a signal post
and it didn't give an inch.  Remember, airbags are supplements to your
seatbelts.

Take care all, and have a Merry Christmas.

Shawn

Shawn,
Hate to hear that, but glad you are OK. You'll be back, once a Ford Lover,
always a Ford lover.

Glad to hear you are OK.  I would hope you get another F-150 and stay on
the list!

As someone already pointed out, I rebuilt the box. But in all fairness the
truck has 189xxx miles on the odometer (a much larger amount is actually on
the truck since the odometer didn't work for about 4 months and the larger
32" tires without changing the speedo gear) The shaft was a little worn, but
not really all that bad. I didn't state in the earlier post, but it isn't as
much of an annoyance in 2wd as it is in 4wd. Considering the limited slip up
front working its magic. But it has never been this bad. The alignment
should be good, brought it in last winter for the first time in it's 13 year
(12 at that time) history, and they said and showed me on the rack that she
was right on. I was amazed. Anyways Thanks for the replies.
