Were those put on the stock 7" rims or were they swapped for a larger size?

I have Goodyear Wrangler 305/75/16 on my 2000 F250, Crewcab, Longbed, 4
x 4, V10, with 3.73 gears. The dealer where I purchased the truck
swapped my stock tires for the Wranglers and charged me $400.00 total.
He advised me that these are the biggest I could go without affecting
anything as far as gearing and speedo and such. At first I did not
believe him but I have had no problems with the truck and tires as of
yet. I also pull a toyhauler which weighs 9800 lbs empty. I know it's
at least 11,000 with water, motorcylces and gear. Still, I have no
problems with the large tires and towing. I'm satisfied with the tires
and they look great without a lift. Let me know if you have any
questions.

Subject: FTE 97up - Changing 99.5 PSD Fuel Filter

Just crossed the 15K mark, and time to change the fuel filter.

Anything I should know that's not already covered in the
owner's manual? Like does the cover come off easily, or
is a special tool needed?

Also, the new fuel filter I bought online from D.I.S., appears
slightly different than what's pictured in the manual - no tabs
that secure to the cover. Aside from this, everything else in
the manual and instructions that came with the new filter are
the same.

Thanks.

Subject: FTE 97up - i think i have a problem

i have a 99 f-150 4.6L v8 4x2 ext cab.
when i am on an onramp to the interstate, or just passing someone, when my
tach goes beyond 4500 rpm all the engine does is rev loudly with no power
increase.
is this normal of these new engines?

if anyone could give me some info i would be very appreciative.

thanks, Bill

Dave/Laura,

Do you have the new Wrangler MT/R's? If so, how do you like them? Any
comments on highway/off-road performance? These tires have been showing up a
lot in the 4 wheeling magazines, and they've only been out for a couple
months, so they've got to be good... but I've never heard any specific
comments on them.

Also (in response to many posts), on the subject of 285's vs 295's on 7 inch
rims, I've had 285/75-16 Bridgestone Dueler MT's on my 97 F-150 XL SC LB for
a year now, with no problems at all. Clearance is fine, traction is
unbelievable, plus I figure I have about a 3 inch lift, and I still get
decent power and acceleration. Only problem is that my brakes are stressed
out now. I would definitely not recommend 295's on a 7 inch wheel.

Man, be careful about statements like that. Intrest magazines are notorious
for saying only good things about advertisers and those pictures are like as
not on vehicles that are sponsored by someone. Read they didn't pay full
freight like you will have to.

The latest overhyped hardware may not be all that great when it comes out to
overall performance.

As RS notes, the cover is on tight. Use a strap wrench, or whatever you use
to remove the oil filter. They are about the same diameter.
It may help to remove the "power stroke" cover for easier access.

Also drain the fuel bowl first. Otherwise, when you take out and insert the
filter you'll end up with diesel all over the top of the engine :-).

Connect some rubber hose to the water separator drain line,
otherwise you'll end up with Diesel all over the floor.

And I'm pretty sure the 99 fuel filters don't have tabs.

There was a funny story a long time back on www.ford-diesel.com
where one of the guys used an air gun to blow out the diesel and particles
in the water separator fuel bowl. He was washing diesel out of his face
for quite a bit. At least he didn't get hurt (well too badly anyway).
