Hi:

Unless I am incorrect, I order a Super Duty limited slip with the 3.73 rear.

Does anyone know of a paper, Club or newsletter for Power Stroke owners? I
have had many customers trade in Dodge Cummins and want to receive a paper
like the TDR. Is there any thing like this available? Thanks!

The 3.73 Limited Slip is available with the Diesel but not the V-10. The
4.30 is not as bad as it sounds it will only run 2400 RPM at 65 MPH. The
3.73 Posi is probably going to be available in the future but isn't at this
time. Ford was also working on putting in Detroit Locker units but it is
not working with the ABS so it may not ever see production.

I am in Fort Myers and am also interested if you get any response. If not,
maybe we will have to start our own club.

Chad or Ken,
Thought we were going to get rid of the MIME format posts. They sure take up
a lot of room. Thanks, Butch Davis-

No, the only way to get a rear stabilizer bar is to order the heavy
service suspension or camper package.

Chad:

Glad to see Ford is willing to work with you on the buy-back. I'm not clear
on which truck you are going to get from your post, but I know that you CAN
get the 3.73 limited slip axle as an option for the new F-350. According to
the Kelly Blue Book website, the MSRP on the axle is $260 and the dealer cost
is $221. The option code is "XD1". Hope this is of some help.

Due to a configuration error on my part, several emails
didn't get posted to the lists, especially if you use
a Microsoft email product. This has now been corrected.
Wait a few hours and if you post doesn't show up, send it again.

Subject: Re: F350 Super Duty

Does anyone out there know the answer to the following:

1. Does this model, or Super Duty's in general, come with or have
as an option floating axles, front and rear on the 4WD?

2. Is there any kind of factory or after market option for a load
leveler?

3. Are after market options available for a front right air bag
deactivation switch? This deactivation switch is available
from the factory in the Super Cab but not the Crew Cab.

4. Does anyone have a lead on after market head rests for
the rear seat of the Crew Cab?

I'll be ordering the beast in the first part of the second half of....
