I don't have any idea what it will be. I would get too excited for a couple
of months, then you might be able to find pictures. Ford hasn't even
announced that we can order the trucks, I just lucked into finding it on the
computer.

I have recently been looking at lifts and I saw the Warn (through the Black
Diamond Suspension Line) now offers a lift for the F-150's! Has anyone heard
of it, used it, installed it? I would assume that because it is made by Warn
it is of the highest quality, also, anyone heard of any good prices on
these?

Sorry I get like that about truck stuff, but you are absolutely right. I
still haven't been able to locate a snapless tonneau cover like the one
offered on the 99 F-150 in kit form. I ordered mine with it, but it came
without. My dealer says I would have to buy each piece individually to
install it, which of course, is prohibitively expensive.

I have always had great luck with the Firestick's.

My only concern with mounting the CB above the knee is, where is the knee
going to go if you get front impact wreck. The dash is padded, the CB is not.

Hi,

Yep, I dropped by the dealer for a quote on a F-550 but got it for a 1999
model. They heard this morning they're all model year 2000's now.

I've only been on this list a couple months, are the prices published on any
web sites? The Base Price I got was $31,000, does that sound right?

I'm going to be full time RVing, and Florida is flat enough that a F550
should work well. Too bad about that long wait!
