Who needs warning idiot labels on their sun visors? Does anyone have a
recommendation for removing them without destroying the finish on the
visors? Thanks

Subject: FTE 97up - Dual Battery hookup

Just bought a new f150 4x4 and want to install dual batteries. The second
battery to provide power for an 8000 lb Warn Winch and a backup.

I want to isolate the batteries so that one of them draining doesnt kill the
other. The usual diesel parallel hookup won't do that.

A solid state switching unit is being sold by a company called Hellroaring
Technologies in Montana. It's different from the relay or diode systems that
are normally used. On paper it looks pretty good but I wondered if anyone
out there has personal experience with the unit.

John,

I presently only use one battery with my XD9000i because I
can not find a spot in the engine bay to put a second
battery. Where do you plan on putting yours?
I looked at the H T page and it seems Ok. Go for it and let
us know how it works. ;-)

I removed my rear light cover just for you! and Nope my lariat is molded

without some serious cutting.

Speaking of light sockets, my 99 crew cab XLT has working lights in the
front doors but the read doors have no socket and it looks like the door
panel is molded with little or no well space for one. I was wondering if
the Lariat's come with lighted rear door panels or if they to only have
functional front lights? Anyone know?

Subject: RE: FTE 97up - Towing 12k W/3.73 gears & V-10

I have 4.30 and a V-10 F250 SD CC. I tow a 28 foot bumper hitch trailer,
with slide out, and it tips the scales at 8300 pounds. Add three thumpers
(dirt bikes) and all of our gear in the bed we push 10000 easily. I spent
the summer (9 weeks) running around Yosemite, Redwoods, Wyoming, Montana. I
got 8.5mpg when I ran at 63mph or so, gas mileage goes down from there
because of the gearing. And of course I ran it down I-5 at just under 80mhp,
so the mileage dropped off to 7.7 and depending on my passing as low as 7.0.

I definitely have used the entire RPM curve. Running the 9000 foot pass into
Jackon WY, (passing diesals sucking for air) I came out of some of the 25mph
curves on a 12% grade with my foot in it the Tach jumps to 4500, once the
speeds back up, it goes back to lugging at 2500.

Just kidding you diesal guys, I got to get back at you for the mileage you
get and $/gal you pay, but I still can stand the rattle.

> 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.

I would like to install an AMSOIL bypass filter on my 2000 F-150 with a 5.4

It seems pretty cramped in the engine compartment. Any suggestions?

Sounds about what I get. I have a '99 V-10 F250 SD CC w/ 3.73 (about 8000
miles) and tow a 7000 lbs trailer (loaded) 30' bumper hitch trailer. Last
trip was to the "mountains" of western PA and back and I averaged 65-70mph
and got 9+ mpg. Best was 9.7. Still think I can get better than 10 if I
would keep to 60-65. I have a short bed w/ the 28 gallon tank and wish I
had the larger tank that comes with the long bed for better range between
fill ups. Best highway w/o trailer so far is just under 15 doing 70-75 mph
on relatively flat highway (route 95 south to Georgia)

Shouldn't it be "Diesels". Diesel is a proper name and should be capitalized.
