Subject: FTE 97up - TT mirrors

Mornin!

1) Hopefully someone out there has disassembled there truck a little further
than I have. I have a 99 F250SD with the stock power mirrors. I want to
change to the 2000 power trailer tow mirrors, but my dealer cant seem to
figure out if the plugs will be the same till they order them in, and of
course, hit me for a restocking charge if they dont work! Anybody tried this,
or upgraded their 99 to the 2000 power mirrors?

2) Anyone had to replace the badges on the fender yet? I need to know if
they have a locating pin behind them, and the corresponding hole in the
fender..??

TIA!

Joe,

Glad you finally got the muffler you really wanted in the first place.
Sounds like a good choice for a mellow sound.

You said, "After all my goals were increased torque and fuel economy...." Is
the Flowmaster providing those for you? If so, I'd be interested in how much
of an economy improvement the muffler provides as well as any torque increase
you've realized.

Thanks,
Butch

- - why dont you just ask for 99 TT mirrors? they should work, i was thinking
about switching too, so i dont keep pissing off everyone i cant see.

2) Anyone had to replace the badges on the fender yet? I need to know if
they have a locating pin behind them, and the corresponding hole in the
fender..??

- -most of them do have on the larger ones, i have not checked , none of mine
have been stoled. Just for reference the regular 5.0 emblems do but cobras
do not. Like i am willing to bet the one on tail gate of F250SD is stick on
and the fender probably has alignment pins.

TIA!

Subject: FTE 97up - a question about towing

i have a 99 f-150 4.6L 3.55 axle, non towing package 4x2 ext cab.

should i keep overdrive off when i'm towing, or just when i'm going up hills?
i have heard it both ways, and i know there are expert towers on the list,
so i'm open for advice.

also, when i am towing the boat and i hit the brakes to stop, the left
trailer light goes out, even if i have the left signal on it goes out.

i'm a young guy(22), so i don't have a whole lot of experience towing except
for on the farm back home(PA). we had an 87 f-250 7.5(460)
5 spd tranny. with either 4.10 or 4.30 axle, 4x4. it would pull anything.

it loved to tow gmc's and chevy's out of the mud and snow.
my father used to say, chevy is like a rock, but a rock can't move on it's
own. that's why they make ford trucks-to tow them!!!
thought that was cool.


sorry to be so long winded and dance around subjects.

thanks
Bill

Unfortunately I may never know. The mod was made with 30 mile on the truck.
I never had an opportunity to get a base line. The truck is rated at 17 MPG
highway and I pulled 19+ out of it on a trip from Dallas to Austin which was
about 170 miles, and that was cruising at 75 MPH without my ARE tonue(spl)
cover.

As for power, the only thing we might be able to do is slap a G-Tec on the
dash of a couple of identical stock 4x4s and in mine and see if there is a
difference. Aside from that we may never know. I look at it this way, it's
highly unlikely that it hurt either power or economy.

Joe

Subject: Re: FTE 97up - a question about towing

Bill,

It depends on the weight you are bulling. The way I would do it, drive with the OD off
and try it; if your speed is over the 65 for a long time then I'll go with the OD. If
you are driving hills and your speed are fewer than 55 I'll keep the OD off.
Good luck.

Hunter.
p.s. I like your old man saying.

Mine took about two weeks (13 days to be exact). I found a small-town
dealer about 100mi. from me that hadn't filled their build allotment for
months, so I got mine quick.

the dealer here in Toledo said it should take about 3 to 4 months due to the
v10 and the automatic, should I believe that or because everyone wants one
of these trucks?

Subject: FTE 97up - ADMIN: FTE 3rd Anniversary and a chance to ask Ford!

FTE will soon be celebrating its 3rd Anniversary as a web site.
(It was just a mailing list prior to that).

We have several things planned for this. Among them is an
opportunity for you, the FTE user, to have your questions
answered by Bob Masone, F150 Product Manger for Ford Motor
Company!

Post the question(s) you would like to have asked, and we'll
hash them out here. I'm going to present 5-10 questions to
Bob in an interview and post the transcripts on the web site
and to the mailing lists.

There are a few minor guidelines....

1. No questions about unannounced future products.
2. Keep in mind that this isn't a mechanic's chit-chat.
3. It may be best to use this as an opportunity to discuss
Ford's involvement with the enthusiast community.

Ken Payne
Admin, Ford Truck Enthusiasts
