> What about the rest of you that tow with V-10's ? Is my ride a dog ?
Towing instructions said to order 4:30 gears, general instructions
"Order lower gear ratio than prev years models to take advantage of wide
RPM range of new engines". You do need to run the engine at a higher
RPM to obtain the horsepower, the same as the boat engine. My V-10, 4:30
11,000# bucket truck has good power, better than my 89 460, 4:10. The
brakes however are worthless... I bought a new GMC last month, it stops
nice, was avail off the lot with a gas engine.

It depends on what they did.

I know that my dealer told me I needed a tire rotation w/ 7000 miles on the
odometer. They wanted $100!!! I could have Discount/America's Tires do it
for free and I didn't buy it there.

Experts, did I get ripped off, or is $450 normal for the 30,000 mile
service to a 99 F-150 4x4 5.4 Auto Lariat in SE Texas? >>
