If that's all you want to do (pulling less than 5000), then I'll go with the F150. You
should also get better gas milage.

Dan,

You do not need to pull the headliner down if you're installing a
thru-the-roof mount. Drill your hole about three inches behind the dome
light. Remove the dome light assembly (three screws, if I remember
correctly) and you will be able to see the hole through the dome light
opening. Push your coax through the hole and down through the dome light
opening into the cab. Secure the roof mount. Once the antenna is mounted,
snake the coax between the headliner to the rear of the cab. The coax will
easily pop out near the rear glass. From there, it's easy to finish the job.

My guess would be so the compressed air has some place to go when you close

Mike,

The difference in the two trucks is as follows: the 250
has a stronger frame and is rated to tow more. It has a
full floating rear end and 10.25" differential. The F-150
with the 4.6L does not and it has an 8.8" diff. The 4.6 is
rated at 220 HP and 290 lbs ft of torque and the 5.4 is 235
hp and 330 lbs ft. The auto in the 250 is the E4OD and is
slightly better than the 4R70W that is in the 97 F-150.
Both trucks have the same front 8.8" differential. Look at
the axle code on the Vehicle Certification label. The F-150
has either an 18 for a 3.08 gear or a 19 for a 3.55 gear or
H9 for a 3.55 Limited slip. The F-250 has either a 27 for
a 3.31 gear or a 26 for a 3.73 or a B6 for a 3.73 limited
slip. This label is usually on the driver side door
pillar. It sounds like the 250 was used like a work
vehicle. Start the engine when it is cold and listen for
piston slap.

Good luck with your choice.

Regards

Jean Marc Chartier

I haven't seen this question answered yet...Will the heated mirrors on the
newer rigs, Excurions, or '00 Trucks(?) retrofit onto the '99 Super Duty.

Also, can anybody tell me what the "THEFT" indicator in the tachometer area
of the dash is for? I can see it when the lighting conditions are right and
I know the truck doesn't have an alarm system to speak of (wish it did see
comments below) and it isn't documented anywhere. Is this dash used for
another Ford vehicle that has a security system?

If you don't have the burglar alarm, the THEFT indicator just means that the
car's computer will check for an ID on the key (via a small chip) before it
will let the engine start. If you have a burglar alarm, the THEFT indicator
will glow solid when pre-armed, flash when armed.

An alarm system from Ford wasn't an option on my 99 4x4 SDCC, and my
key/ignition doesn't have a chip (that I can tell). Do after market alarm
systems tie into the Super Duty's theft light? I want an alarm system
installed because it seems like it is vulneralbe to theft. I am surprised it
doesn't have more protection from the factory, unless I missed something?

Does anybody have a Super Duty with a larger key, i.e. chip? The answer to

Did you get a remote with your truck?

Here is one test to see if you have the burglar alarm. Lock the doors using
power locks, pull the handle on the driver's door to just unlock that, close
that door, wait 20-40 seconds, open. If the horn starts honking and the
lights flash, you got the alarm. Stick the key in the ignition and turn
to ACC, or stick it in the door and turn it to shut off the racket.

Those vents also let large amounts of air out quickly, for example when your
airbags go off. If they are plugged, you and your passenger will also have
blown eardrums in addition to a bloody nose and black eyes.

Well, it sounds to me like the F-250 is not quite as clean, has a bigger motor,
and costs $3000 less. Lets face it, you are probably going to scuff up the paint
and soil the carpet on your own, so that shouldn't play a big factor in your
decision.
The F-250 is the better deal here.

Just had a meeting today and the current status on orders was discused. For
the Kansas City region (others may be different, but should be simmilar)
their were 650 Retail (Customer ordered, Not Fleet or Stock) V-10 Super Duty
orders. The estimates put 150 of these to be scheduled this month (November
production). So this explains the backlog of SD's. On a simmilar note,
Excursions had 89 Sold Retail orders with an expected 13 of them to get

Did you get a remote with your truck?

Here is one test to see if you have the burglar alarm. Lock the doors using
power locks, pull the handle on the driver's door to just unlock that, close
that door, wait 20-40 seconds, open. If the horn starts honking and the
lights flash, you got the alarm. Stick the key in the ignition and turn
to ACC, or stick it in the door and turn it to shut off the racket.

What about the Excursions heated mirrors interchanging with the Super Duty?
Talk to my parts department and the mirrors are $125.00 a piece but they had
no idea if they would work on my truck. Who would know about this?

Ron,


It is there to remind you what side the fuel door is on.
Notice the arrow.
It is useful for people who drive many different vehicles
and can not remember where the door is.

PS. I just wish it would light up with the head lights. It
is difficult to see in the dark.

Hi Jean Marc,

Ahhhhhh...now it makes sense to me. Had me baffled now for over a year.
Couldn't find anything on it in the owners manual. This list is great for
all kinds of little tidbits like that. Thanks!!

Ron
