Finally found out the situation on Passenger SRS on 1999 SD's. It is still
optional (except Lariat). This Aug. it will become standard on all models.
If they do like they did with the 98 Windstar they will have a Job # 2 when
the normal 99's come out that will have a few option and color changes

Subject: FTE 97up - Super Duty Ride height

Kansas City region sends out a news letter to its dealers and this months
had a couple of interesting parts. First a modification center has been
approved as a ship thru modifier to get a 108" CA ib super Duty's. The ship
through codes are 31F/D9E. The second note was that engineering has
developed a service fix to lower the ride height of F-250/F-350 4X4. Some
fifth wheel applications won't fit at the stock height so this will fix the
problem (and make the 25% of the people that don't want a tall truck happy).
It doesn't say what it includes but a letter is supposed to go out shortly.

Nathan,

Thanks for looking into the SD cast/forged wheel question.
I know that I speak for many when I say that we appreciate all your
informative posts.

Subject: FTE 97up - Superduty Carlise

Hi everyone,
Not to toot my own horn, but I was at the All Ford Nationals at Carlisle
this past week and I entered my 99 Superduty 4X4 Lariat Powerstroke in
the "80 and up stock " competition. I WON 2nd place!!! I was actually
there with the Merkur group and figured I would enter my truck since it
is a new model. There was one other Superduty Dually Crew cab there. I
guess the Superduty was a big hit if I got that many votes!!! My truck
is still stock with only a Ford bedliner and a Weathergaurd Diamond
plate box. Did anyone on the list attend? Does anyone know who won 1st
place? I received a nice plaque to put on my wall. Thanks to anyone
who voted for me.

I would like to add my "amen" to Roy's thanks to Nathan. Ford should reward
him for all the goodwill he has created for them

New F-150 owner - First Post
Well I traded in my 1992 Explorer XLT for a '98 F-150 Off-Road 4X4, SuperCab
XLT, Styleside (short-box), 5.4l, 4-speed auto. o/d, 17" Wranglers, about
3-weeks ago and I am quite happy so far. A few stitches missing in the rear
seat back, a whine from the driver's side window (a new upper track on
order) and a rattle in the dash-mounted cup-holder (I think) are about all
the problems I've identified so far.

I used Mobil 1 synthetic in the Explorer and plan to do the same in the
F-150. Any comments on how long I should wait or does it not affect the
engine break-in? It does knock a bit at start-up but based on previous
posts that seems to be normal for the 5.4l.

I would like to add running boards but haven't found anything I like on the
web yet. I would like something that looks like it belongs on the truck and
not just an add-on - but cheaper than the ones available through the dealer.
Any comments would be appreciated. (Send direct mail to cpc007 inforamp.net
or tenfore hotmail.com). Here, in Ottawa, there are not too many places
that sell custom equipment (No PepBoys or AutoZone stores). Perhaps I will
have to make a trip down to Watertown, NY!

The dealer supplied wiring information is pretty thin and I want to install
my cell phone booster kit. I hope to use one of the unused terminals on the
fuse panel - anyone know which ones are switched and unswitched? I would
rather not start splicing wires the way the cell phone supplier did on the
Explorer.

Seems like a nice group you have here - my compliments to Ken for all the
hard work he must put in.

Tenfore ("Canadian, eh!")
