Numbers on Pro comp lift for F-150

5.4 engine = $1650.00
4.6 engine = $1490.00

Expect 500 to 1000 for labor. Remember also this is not an easily reversible kit. I am sure some cutting and welding
are required so remember with some lift kits you can't go back. also note that you factory warranty will be void for
many parts of the drivetrain.

Pro Comp makes really good lifts which work well on the street and off road.

I have a 99 F350 PSD DRW CC LB with the 4.10 LS (opted for the 4.10 for
the LS option since the 3.73 LS was not available for this combination).
70 mph corresponds to roughly 2200 rpm with all original equipment. You

Subject: FTE 97up - Locked Locking Hubs

I used 4x4 the other day to climb a hill with a load of tile. I engaged the
front hubs manually to the lock position. I engaged the "4x4 low" from the
cab with the ESOF. I finished the hauling and unlocked the hubs after
disengaging the 4x4 in the cab.

Please excuse me if I do not understand how the 4x4 system in my 99 F350
works.

I noticed the symptoms driving on pavement that the front axle may be
locked. (Intermittent wheel slip on low speed turn on a paved parking lot).
I had some one look at my front drive shaft to see if it was spinning. It
was! Is this proper and normal behavior when the 4x4 is not engaged?

I was under the impression the front drive axle should only spin when the
front hubs are locked, or when they lock automatically by the ESOF. Is this
correct?

Any insight would be helpful. Do I have a warranty item with these locking
hubs?

Thanks,
Scott.

Sounds like your 4 wheel drive is not disengaged properly. Either your transfer case is stil engaged or your hubs
are still engaged. Either of these would cause your front driveline to rotate. As for the tire slippage, this indicates
that BOTH are still emgaged (t-case and hubs) If either are disengaged the wheels won't slip. Try shifting in and out
of 4 wheel drive. I can hear my t-case shift easily. Kind of a klunk noise. Backing up and turning the wheel should
help disengage the 4WD. If that does not work get to the dealer and get it fixed before it damages your truck..

BTW let me know what hapens. I too have ESOF and want to kow of any possible problems.
