I have F350 SC, DRW, 4X4 60" cab-axel (156" ? WB). The turning radius
is excessive, it is not practical for this reason, as a snowplow. I
will try to measure the turning circle, it seems a lot more than my 89,
60" cab-axel, std cab. I guess you can order SC, short box now...might
help.

I have F350, SC, cab-chassis...I don't beleive there is anyplace to hang
a spare under the chassis, the gas tank extends to the end of the frame,
in addition the frame extends further beyond the rear axel than prev
models. A local garbage collector ordered an early 99 F450, did not
know about rear gas tank...Had to remove (permanently) to fit his packer
body!
If you order a hitch, you may not like the front/back placement or
height, when you complete the body. Most body installers make a very
nice hitch. Mine is a pintle/ball combo, integrated into a "ICC" type
bumper, which is set 6" to rear to act as a step.

Interesting....I was in a Midas shop this week and he showed me their system
and your note indicated maybe you like the sound of Midas over the
Flowmaster....Midas man said the flowmaster has a "tiney" sound and the Midas
was deeper and more mellow.

Do you think the wife would be happier with the Midas system? They also had
different sizes and lengths on the chrome extensions...any suggestions?

Best regards,

Don

Nathan:

Exhausted means; no more to built this week? and no controls means:
production continues this week for all trim models?

Does exhausted mean that there is no more for the week?

Exhausted means that no more will be scheduled this week. Items that are
known to run out weekly are called controlled items and cannot be added to
scheduled orders (unless you are incredibly lucky)

Subject: Re: FTE 97up - Invoice buying

Hi List,

It has come to pass that I am now in charge of procuring a 1998 F150 regular
cab, long bed V8 automatic with A/C for the company. Does anyone know of a no
hassle, low or invoice price dealer in the Fort Worth/Dallas, Texas area? I'd
love to buy it from Nathan, and if it was for me, I would, but the company
won't spring for that far a trip. I've tried auto-by-tel, and they sent me to
a dealer I'd prefer not to deal with.

TIA,
Robert
