Keith,
The May issue of 4Wheel & Off Road had an article with pictures of the kit
and how to install it. The only thing they show with the kit is new leaf
springs and new U-bolts. Price $499.95 without shocks. Where did you buy
your kit? Could you please give me some more information on it? How do you
like it?
Thanks, Jeff


Tuff Country 3 1/2 " lift DOES relocate the track bar. I know, I was there
watching as my dealer's mechanic was cussing at it while working to make
sure it was relocated and reinstalled as perfectly as possible. Note that
some of the various lift kits that are 3" and/or less do not require the
track bar to be relocated.

I really like the kit. It makes the truck. Everywhere I go people ask me
how I got it to sit so nice and high and level. The improvement in ride has
been phenomenal, very stiff, but tight and I like it like that. I have the
F-350 SuperDuty ('99) V-10 / 4X4 / Longbed / SuperCab / etc. Tuff Country
makes 2 different spring strengths, one for the 5.4L and 6.8L, and a stiffer
one for the PowerStroke diesel. I ordered the diesel springs even though I
have the 6.8L V-10. I discussed my plowing with the tech at Tuff Country,
and he said that a few people with V-10 have had better results with the
heavier (diesel) springs, especially if you have a plow and/or winch in
front. Since my truck was made before 2/14/99, I have the 4" blocks in the
rear. My truck sat nose heavy, especially when I put a plow on it. Also, I
did not like the unbalance look of only 2 leaf springs in the front and 6 in
the rear. Now the truck sits dead level and when I put the plow on the
front (850 lb.) the front does not dip down much at all (maybe 3/4 ").
If you would like me to fax you the sheet that came with my order from
tuff-Country, just post or send me your fax #.

> Virus Profile McAfee.com : Support : Virus Information Center
> Virus Name W32.cih.spacefiller
>
> Date Added
> 7/15/98
>
>Virus Characteristics
>This family of viruses, written in South-East Asia, first appeared in
June 1998. Currently
>there are three known variants; and at least two of these have been
found ?in the wild?.
>
>The viruses infect Windows 95 files in PE format.
>
>Win32/CIH viruses are able to split up the body of the virus code and
place it within
>unused parts of the infected file (PE files usually contain lots of
unused space).
>
>The viruses contain a very dangerous payload, which triggers on the
26th of any month.
>On this date, they attempt to overwrite the flash-BIOS. If the
flash-BIOS is
>write-enabled (and this is the case in most modern computers with a
flash-BIOS) this
>renders the machine unusable because it will no longer boot. At the
same time, they also
>overwrite the hard disk with garbage.
>
>The viruses contain the following (unencrypted) strings:
> .a variant: CIH v1.2 TTIT, .EXE
>
>
>Indications Of Infection
> EXE files of the PE (Portable Executable) format.
>
>Method Of Infection
>The only way to infect a computer with a file infecting virus is to
execute an infected file
>on the computer. The infected file may come from a multitude of
sources including: floppy
>diskettes, downloads through an online service, network, etc. Once
the infected file is
>executed, the virus may activate.
>
>
>--
>use OS/2 for a crash proof work environment
>use Linux for safe and quick internet access
>use Winblows to test the latest viruses
