I'll be in Texas for a week going to a Northern Telecom PBX school for the
Air National Guard. I leave tomorrow morning and get back next Friday
night. I'll try and answer any questions when I get back.

Hi all.
I'm new to the list and have just bought a short whelbase '98 F150 4.6
automatic tranny that's 7500 miles from new. I guess this question is for
Nathan. I'd like to know a fair price for a dealer to install the tranny
cooler portion of the tow package. It already has the hitch/lights, and I
don't want to ruin the ride with HD shocks as I don't really plan to tow.
But I think the tranny cooler may be a good idea for longevity with a lot of
around-town driving in a hot climate, if the price is right.

Also, I'm looking for recommendations for the best dollar value non-spray
bedliner and insulated, aluminium lock-box. I plan to do a lot of tent
camping, and a good lockable, drainable combination cooler/utility box would
be a real plus.

Finally, a word for Nathan. I think it's great of you to participate in the
list as you do. The straightforward responses you give here are valuable and
refreshing. Thanks.
Jackson Burgess

RDTE is the date the order was placed, SCHD is the date it was scheduled,
STAT is the last time it was updated, DETA is Dealer estimated time of
arrival, RET means it is a sold order,

I haven't priced a cooler for a 4.6L but they used to run $100-200
installed. This will vary by what area your in. Our Labor rate is $33.50
an hour, but when I was in Belleville, IL they were $71 an hour.. I also
like the new Ford (Duraliner) bed liners. They have a coating on the bottom
that really seems to help stuff from sliding, and they fit and look good.
Dealer cost is usually $140, but there are some special buys once and a
while.
