June 11 is the first day you can order. According to what I have read they
will not start building F-150's until 8/1/98 so arrival would be after that.
Usually presell started mid September with official introduction in Oct.
This year vehicles will be for sale as soon as they come in but it is at
least 3 months off. I am still ordering 98 F-150's for another week.

I noticed that Ford/Mercury changed the backlighting on the all the
electronics and dash of the new 98 crown vics and grand marquis' to a
greenish color verses a blue color from previous years. Could this be the
same for the new 1999 F-150 since they use the same vendors for this
equipment? Does the F-250> have the blue lighting or the new greenish
color?
