Subject: FTE 97up - Exhaust Brake for Super Duty

Does anyone have any information about the exhaust brake for the F350 Super
Duty (Ram makes it available as an option)? When will it be available as a
Ford factory option? Can it be added to an existing SD after production?
What, if any, after market exhaust brakes are acceptable? Are there any
maintenance concerns associated with the addition and use of an exhaust
brake on the 7.3L Powerstroke?

Jim:
I don't believe you can use the Jacobs Exhaust Brake. i contacted them a
while back and they said no. Their is another company that makes one and it
can be found I believe on Truck
World . There is another brake that works on the drive shaft but it is
very expensive, I thank about $3,000. Let me know if you find anything. I
want one on a 99 crew cab.

Hi Jim,

Take a look at http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.bd-vfi.com/exhaust.htm
A factory option from Dodge? NOT. There is a brake available from Cummins as
an aftermarket accessory. I don't look for Ford or Dodge to make it available
as an option, because there is just not that much market for it, maybe 2% max.
Several people in our local club have brakes by different manufacturers, and
we're all happy with them. And why not? All it is, is a backpressure over-
riden old fashioned heat riser valve. There is no maintenance to it, just make
sure that the backpressure rating is compatable with your exhaust valve
springs.

Best Regards,
Robert Stout

Subject: Re: FTE 97up - 98 Ranger Stereo questions

I've had my '98 Ranger SuperCab 2x4 for about 4 months now and love it!!!
Trying to enhance the Dual-Media 80 watt (supposedly) unit has been a
challenge. This dash unit looks very similar to the one in the '98
Expedition unit (which gives you the option of a 6 CD changer and Subwoofer
assembly).

When you look at the back of the unit, there appears to be two different
attachment points (CD/Sub ???) The Ford dealer didn't have a clue, the
Lincoln dealer indicated that IF it was the Navigator unit, he could sell me
a unique Ford cable that would connect to a unique Ford subwoofer amp that
would power a unique Ford subwoofer. Too unique for me!

Instead I purchased the JLAudio (www.jlaudio.com) custom built subwoofer
assembly. This takes the place of the driver side jump seat (bolts in using
the factory pre-drilled holes, takes fifteen minutes) and comes with a 12"
JLAudio subwoofer. This fires down to the floor and requires a 150 to 200w
subwoofer amp. I attached this to a speaker level sub-woofer amp (Kenwood),
which "taps" into the left channel's speaker lines for signal. I mounted
this under the driver's seat.

I replaced the 4 factory speakers with Pioneer aftermarket's from
Crutchfield (www.crutchfield.com), which come with factory connectors so
that you don't have to cut the wiring harness.

Eventually, I'll like to replace the head unit, but unless someone has found
something that will fill that chasm of a space (without top and bottom
spacer pieces), I'm stuck with what I have.

The only problem with putting a cd-changer in the arm-rest assembly is that
the cd-changer magazine would have to be facing towards the roof. It appears
to be a future problem area with dust/misc. getting into the electronics.

If anyone has come up with other ideas, would love to hear them.

Richard.

Subject: FTE 97up - Permission to use your pictures.

Tonight Peggy and I were scanning in several pictures mailed to
us for the pictorial and t-shirt. We have an idea for the booth
at the Pigeon Forge show.

We want to display these trucks on a bulletin board to let people
know what type of trucks our members drive. We're also going to
print out several from the pictorial. If you have any objection
to your truck being displayed let us know and we won't show it.
Email us privately about this (kpayne mindspring.com).

Pictures will be displayed at the show and not given out to
anyone. Also, if your truck from the pictorial doesn't show up,
its probably because the image didn't print out too well, not
because we didn't like it. Ink jet printers can be picky about
what prints out good.
