I've got an order almost completed for a 99 F350 Crew Cab, 4WD dually. =
I'm
supposed to give final specs to the fleet dealer in a couple of days. =
I'm confused about this "shift on the fly" option. Does it work? We have =
a 97
Powerstroke 4WD/Crew Cab now - with manual locking hubs that seem to
work great (We're keeping this truck). What are the +'s/-'s of going =
with this shift on the fly thing? Is it reliable? Can I still lock the =
hubs and leave them
locked?=20

thanks...rich cower cower castles.com

The 1999 V-10 we just got in has the Electronic shift on the fly (213)
option. It uses the knob on the dash like the Ranger and optional system on
the F-150. It does not use the junk automatic hubs like Last year. The
hubs are the Pulse Vacuum hublock system like on the 98 Ranger. It should
prove to be reliable. If it is not the hubs have an override witch locks
the front end in manual ( instead of lock and free it has Auto and Lock
settings) Hope this helps.

Let me know what price they are charging you for this new truck as I am
interested in what other dealers are charging and when they are telling you
it will arrive.
