At one time there was a company called Auto Werks based in Texas. There
was a big write up on one of there trucks in Grassroots Motorsports
some time back. I have not been able to contact this company, but am
sure they are still involved. I would appreciate it if you could submit
any more info to Ford Ranger Fans On-Line, as I am working on a SoloII
project truck. Some say a truck can make it around a Solo course as
quick as most other vehicles, so lets prove them right!

Greetings:

My name is Suzan. I currently own an '89 Ford F350 Crew Cab Dually (XLT
Lariat) with the Rollalong package. It's a nice truck, but since I
purchased my heavy duty steel horse trailer (four horse) it can't pull
worth beans. No guts and lots of over heating.

I've been waiting to purchase the newer style Ford cause I don't want to
pay that kind of money for the "older" body style. But no one can tell me
if, in fact, the '98's will be the newer body style and when they will be
coming out. I also want a Diesel and one that can pull up to 14,000 -
15,000 pounds. Any recommendations or information that anyone can share?
It would be appreciated.

>From what I gather here and elsewhere, you have at least a six month
wait before Ford brings the new big pickups out as a 1999 model. It
sounds like it will be alot like the way they brought out the new F150 -
in early 1996 as a '97 model and sold alongside the old style 1996 model
year. So if some big truck buyers do not like the new style, they will
still be able to buy the existing style as a 1998 model for another year
or so.

Suzan,

My husband and I have a 1986 F-350 Crew Cab Dually - DIESEL (275K and we're
just breaking it in!) We drive to Lake Mead in Vegas twice a month to visit
our 36 ft. cigarette raceboat. It tows very easily and never overheats (even
in 115 degree heat). Long story short, we learned our lesson with a
non-diesel. We are "retiring" our 1986 for a new 1998 (new body style, not
unlike my new Ford Expedition). We were told last week the '98's are due out
in Mar/April. Good Luck and if anyone is in the market for a GREAT custom
(loaded) crew cab (very loved, but well cared for) please email me!

Message-ID:

Some of you may remember me as having handling problems with a 1997 F-350
regular cab 4x4 Powerstroke. In my quest to resolve the problem, I have come
across something that I feel the need to question. Is it typical for the diesel
versions of these pickups to have a lower ride height than the gasoline
versions? Lately, I have compared my truck to a number of gasoline-powered
models, all in the same trim and with the heavy duty front suspension, and I
have noticed that my truck sits at least one inch lower in the front than these
other trucks. Whereas most of the gasoline-powered F-350s I see seem to sit
nearly level, mine appears to rake down in the front. Additionally, my front
springs don't seem to have the same kind of arch as the springs on the trucks I
compare it to.

Considering I've been having a lot of trouble with front-end noises and
all-around poor handling, I am considering all possibilities. I know the diesel
is a heavy engine, but should it be so heavy as to drop the front end an inch or
more that a gasoline engine? I guess I should just find another diesel and make
a comparison, but I figured I'd ask first.

Thanks in advance,
Todd

Ford supplies build sheets for 65-85 only. I got one for my
67 and it was very accurate (and informative). Perhaps if
you can track down the dealer where it was bought you can
get the information you need. I believe you can get a
reproduced window sticker, not sure though.

The Fordnatics list has many racers. Although you're sure to find
helpful information here, their list would probably be very helpful
too. We have a link to their web site on ours.
