Subject: FTE 97up - Spare Tire

I have a 99 F150 SC Lariot which I used for a trip to the Windy City this
weekend. After returning home I saw the cord hanging from underneath the bed
while pumping gas. I realized the spare tire had been stolen, luckily I made
sure the tailgate was locked. Anyone have this happen to them? Is it
possible to chain the tire to the frame? I have 16' tires & rims, how
expensive is it to replace the spare & rim?

Sean

It's time to do my first fuel filter change on my 99 PSD. I've ordered a
couple of the Racor units from DIS in Texas.

Any advice for a first time change?

Thanks in advance,

Does anyone on the list have any type of mounting instructions for Ford
factory molded running boards for a single cab? I can't figure out how
these things go on. I thought they were supposed to mount to exsisting
holes but nothing matches up.

That's another thing. I can't figure out where those things are supposed to
go either. I don't have a clue as to where any of there brackets and shims
are supposed to go.
Anyone have any pictures of underneath their trucks showing how the brackets
and shims are used? That would definitely be helpful.

File a claim with your insurance company for replacement. I use a wire and
padlock looped through the tire and then through the hook to hang a chain on
when towing a trailer. A kid would have to carry a wire cutter in order to
swipe the tire.

Maybe someone out there has an extra one or knows where I can get one. I'm looking for
a front license plate frame for F150-97 with the 4X4 ORB. I tried to take out mine and
ended up with a broken one, so now I'm looking for one. The law in Ohio asks for a
front license plate, so I was wondering if there is someone who don't need his or
replaced it with something else.
I appreciate any help.

Subject: FTE 97up - Extended Service Warranties

I have a newly purchased used 1997 Ford F-150 V8 with 16,000 miles. It has
another year to go under warranty. The Ford dealer wants to sell me an
extended service contract that will cover the truck for another three years
and/or 36,000 miles but it will cost me almost $1,300. I like the idea, but
the price seems awfully high. The Dealer claimed that Ford sells their
contract for around $1,600. Do any of you guys have any insight,
recommendations or suggestions about this?

My truck is stock, 2 wheel drive, short bed, with a towing package (I pull a
light 17 foot camper that weighs less than 2,000 pounds.)

Thanks.

You might try your local fabrication or tool shops. Since they'd have your
truck on hand they could make a box to your specs that would fit perfectly.
You wouldn't have to pay shipping. My guess would be that they could build
one for a comparable price. I've had good experience with the local
fabrication shops. You'd be surprised what they can do.

Subject: RE: FTE 97up - Extended Service Warranties

If it helps for comparison, I bought a brand-new 1999 F150 4.2 V6 ext. cab
2wd. The dealer tried to sell me a 5/75 bumper to bumper warranty for $945.
Of course, that's only 2 years and 39K miles past the normal warranty. I
didn't buy the warranty because they didn't want to deal.

My experience in the past has been that they can sell the warranty for half
what they're asking and still make money.

Go back and hammer at them - warranties are big-profit items for dealers. If
not, there are 3rd party warranty companies out there, maybe someone else on
the list has experience.

Subject: RE: FTE 97up - Extended Service Warranties

I bought a 97 F-150 SC Lariat with 20K miles. My dealer
gave me the bumper to bumper till 36K miles. They
stated Ford backs that warranty for any owner until
the three years or 36K miles is reached.

This dealer was "Ford Certified" (they claimed) so perhaps
they get a different deal. They said they were one of only
6 in New England that were certified.

I bought an extended warranty for the driveline only. It cost
$800 and is good until 60K miles.

extended warranty provider on their homepage. Click this link to take you

They sell warranties for new and used vehicles. Perhaps you might find it

Ford has a spare tire lock where one piece fits in the tube and the other
becomes a key and attaches to the crank when needed. The key otherwise is
kept in the glove box.

Touch wood, I haven't had to test it yet but at least it is some deterent.

As I recall I paid about $45.00.

At least they can't just insert the crank and wind the tire down.

Good luck
