Guys!
If your truck must be running and secure you, have to do something
special. But, if you have the anti-theft system on your trucks that I have,
you don't. Maybe it can be installed by Ford if you don't have it. My 2000
Lariat came with a system that will "hopefully" prevent theft. The key has a
computer chip in it. Only a programmed key will start the truck. Any other
key won't. When I first got the truck, I tried to start it with a duplicate
key that I thought had been programmed by the dealer. It didn't work. I then
had to go through a procedure to program it myself to make it work. This
won't prevent theives getting in, but at least your truck won't go too far.

All of these hi-tech solutions are great, but I remember that the ambulance
company I worked for use to remove the pin which held the gear selector
handle. When we went in on a call, we would leave the ambulance running and
take the gear selector handle with us inside! By locking the doors we were
able to keep the "good boys" from going bad, and the missing gear handle
kept us from walking!

Subject: FTE 97up - factory cd player

I have a 99 superduty with the factory cassette deck and would like to
upgrade to cd. Does anyone out there have any suggestions about where to
look to find a factory unit at a price more reasonable than ford? I would
like to have both tape and cd, plus I like the large button format of the
factory units, so thats why I want factory sound. If anyone knows of an
aftermarket product with similar features that would fit well in my dash,
let me know also.
Thanks

I have always reccomended Crutchfield when you start doing stuff like this
and doing it mail order. Reason? They have been at it for many years in the
mail order chain (they do have some retail outlets now), they don't carry
junk, and they have the installation kits and harnesses with the proper
connectors and know what will fit. They are not the cheapest around, but less
than FoMoCo I would suspect. The telephone folks have always been pretty
knowledgable, far more so that the local suppliers.

They have a web site at http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.crutchfield.com/

Good luck

Check Crutchfield (www.crutchfield.com) for an add-on CD changer. They
usually interface via the radio antenna lead. You set your radio to one of
several frequencies and listen to your CDs through the radio. CD changers
are also very good about not skipping like an in-dash unit normally does.

Subject: FTE 97up - 2000 SD brake problem

Picked up my 2000 SD/SC, etc, etc, etc, on Wednesday, last week. I
love it! However, I have a problem, that when presented to the
dealer, I was told that "The truck only has 8 miles on it. The brakes
haven't even gotten hot yet. Give'm a chance to seat for a week or so
and THEN bring it back if it still does it."

What it does, it does in either forward or reverse, fast or slow,
hard stop or a very light(footed) stop. Get rolling... then, when I
step on the brake pedal, the brakes apply just like they should. I
begin to slow down and JUST BEFORE I COME TO A COMPLETE STOP it feels
like the brakes are being (an extremely quick action here) released
and applied again, almost instantaneously. I DO come to a stop. I can
release the pedal, roll a couple of feet and lightly step back on the
pedal and it will do it again. I can SEE the hood shudder when this
happens. Nathan??? Anyone else??? Sounds like faulty antilock
somethingorother to me. That excuse that I got from the dealer
sounded like BS. And, he said that all 4 wheels have the same thing
going on.

Oh, and BTW, I swapped out the standard 235/85's for BFG 295/75's All
Terrain T/A's! Nice tire! Smooth. Quiet.
