I to have the famous crack on the door and am in the same boat your in with
the tint and visors. I believe when the door is replaced, they will use all
the "guts from the old door such as the window and accessories. Also, does
anyone know how much an extended cab 4x2 weighs....?

Subject: FTE 97up - 4R100

I went to my dealer here in Connecticut where I ordered my truck (for the
3rd time because they got it wrong each time). They had on the lot a 1999
F-150 XLT 4x2 SC 5.4L Flareside. I took a look underneath and saw the
4R100 tranny, not the 4R70W. I then went in side and asked about it. The
truck does NOT have California emissions. So, I said to the dealer, I want
the 44E tranny order code not the 44U on my 2000 F-150 XLT sport SC, 4x2
5.4L. (The 44E is the 4R100 tranny). He put the order in (without
California emissions) and it said "ordering" when he finished to order. It
did not reject the order.

I don't think you need California emissions to get the heavy duty 44E
(4R100) tranny on an F-150. Proof is the truck on my dealer's lot.

Why Flame?

I just want to know the difference between the 4R100(44E) and the
4R70W(44U)? I've never heard of this. My truck, a 2000 F-150 Lariat SC
Flareside 4x4, was ordered last week. I just looked at the order sheet and
it lists the 44U, 4 speed auto tranny. What does the 44E give you that the
44U doesn't??

A quick reply would be greatly appreciated, so that I might get the order
changed before the truck begins production!

Men!

I just got done speaking with my brother who works on the 4R100 production
line in Cincinnati. He pretty much confirmed the info below.

I spoke with the service manager at my dealer here in Austin, as well, and
he said that the 4R100s are better.

Also, I spoke with Ford Customer Service, 800-426-1283, and they confirmed
that you CAN order the 44E on an F-150 Lariat and XLT. She described the
44E as a 5.4L with a 4 speed overdrive tranny. Although, they could not
confirm that it was the 4R100, they did say the column that the 44E/U code
appears in, is the "transmission" column.

The 4R100 is supposed to be a much stronger Tranny. It is the exact tranny
used in the f-150 lightning and all the F-250/350 superdutys. I really
believe that the 44U (4R70W) is a much weaker tranny. It's based off the
old AOD and AOD4 tranny Ford used to make. The 4R100 is based off the E4OD
truck tranny that was used on all F-150's with the 5.8L back in the early
to mid 1990's. The E4OD was also used on the 1993-1995 F-150 Lightning.


Try to get the 44E tranny is you can. You will be happier in the long run.
Definitly if you plan on supercharging it.

That's my $.02.

Connecticut is a "Northeast" state, right? So it has the "Northeast state"
emissions package, right? The "Northeast state" emissions package IS the CA
emissions package, but with a different ordering code. So trucks there with
the 5.4L engine should have the 4R100 trans.

I guess a good question would be did you see any 5.4L trucks with 4R70W
transmissions? I bet there weren't any.

Is this a typographical error or is 12071 the right number dealing with the

Subject: FTE 97up - ADMIN: Second FTE server

Here we grow again!

Ford Truck Enthusiasts has once again outgrown the capacity
of our server. We are in the process of ordering a fractional
T1 line which will allow us to host the site directly from
our home. The time to install is approximately 60+ days.
This will give us a ton of extra capacity and allow us to
offer many more features to our users because our web space
will increase to 10+ gigabytes. Currently, we use about
the same "constant" bandwidth of a 64k ISDN channel and a
peak bandwidth of 5 ISDN channels. Our new capacity will
be about 8 ISDN channels with peak allowances of 10 channels.

In the meantime, our server has gotten slower and we've taken
steps that should have an immediate improvement beginning
this evening. Ford Truck Enthusiasts is now operating on
two servers instead of one. The second server reduces the
load on our current system by about 40%. Expect to see
dramatic improvements in speed.

The second server gives us an additional 350 meg of drive
space. The list archives will be brought back on line in
the next week! Our costs have skyrocketed over the last
6 months. We'll be having a big holiday season sale and
a special promotion in order to pay for all this. As always,
the goal of this is to keep the system free for you and
the mailing lists free from ads. The sale will be conducted
on the web site, not the lists.

Those of you who've been with us a while (Hi Deacon!) know
that I believe in keeping everyone informed as to our
status. If you have any questions, feel free to contact
me personally at kpayne ford-trucks.com
