I have a 97 F-150 extended cab, auto, long bed. 42,000 miles and have
had to turn the front brake rotors for the second time. ANYONE else have
this problem ?? The lug nuts get torqued to 100 lbs as in the manual.
The dealer says this is nomal wear and to expext them to need replaced
in the next 10,000 miles ???

You should tell that dealer to shove those rotors up his butt. No way should
they be going out like that!

I HAVE A 97' F150 THAT HAS 25,000 MILES ON IT AND IT STILL
IDLES A LITTLE ROUGH. THE POWER OF THE 5.4 MAKES UP FOR IT THOUGH.

My 98 F150 is past the 2K point, and it doesn't seem that rough, for a
midsize V8.

As for the brake rotors, that sounds like nitrogenous male cow waste to
me.

Subject: ADMIN: Pigeon Forge show

It's official, Ford Truck Enthusiasts will have a booth at the
20th Annual F100 Nationals in Pigeon Forge, Tenn! Show dates
are (this is from the promoter himself, there have been
conflicting dates mentioned): May 14-17 (Thursday through
Sunday). We may have the booth space as early as Thursday
morning but it may not get set up until the afternoon (paying
vendors get moved in and setup first). We plan to have the
booth up the entire weekend.

We plan to give out brochures and sell the window stickers
there. I need to get some volunteers to man the booth a couple
of hours each so I don't spend the entire show sitting in a
chair..... I really want to get a chance to look at some of the
trucks! Even taking a 30 minute session would be great so I
could make bathroom runs!

Concerning a Ford Truck Enthusiasts picnic, the entire town
is booked solid. We'll have to informally arrange a time
and place to meet for dinner while at the show.

If you need show information, check out the event guide on the
web site. Looking forward to meeting many of the list members
there. Perhaps the west coast members could arrange to meet at
a west coast show?
