Well, the total on the old one would really be 15 (12 on the roof, one
mounted to a custom bracket on the rear of the vehicle, a dual-band
lip-mounted on the hood, and the factory AM/FM)!!!

Well, I have quite a few radios installed in the truck. For instance, I
completely remove the center console, and fill the entire thing up with
radios. I finally scored a digital camera, so I will have some pictures of
the install in the 97 Expy on the net in a few days. I'll post the link so
that those who are curious can check out the installation. I'm also going
to take pictures during the install into the 2001, so those will be posted
as time passes.

Why? Well, there's a lot of police/fire/government/etc. around this area to
monitor and be able to talk to them. You just have to have a ton of radios
to be able to do everything that I want successfully.

Ian,

  I have had Toyo tires in the past on cars.  Nothing bad to say about them.   Handled well in snow & rain.  The M606 has
numerous sipes which should help in rain and ice.  The Tranpath
seems to allow for off road use but has a less aggressive tread.  It would be more of a street tire but it does how ever have a
free 500 mile test.   Michelin makes good tires.  Their LTX lines are getting good reviews.  They do however have 3 types of LTX;
M/S, A/S and A/T.  What do you plan on using your truck for?  Do you have a Costco near you?  I found their prices very good here
in Windsor.

Regards

Jean Marc Chartier

Well, I have a problem with my paint.  I was washing my truck yesterday as I
try to do when the weather permits me to and I was standing about 15 feet
away from the truck, I sprayed the truck with the water hose(almost no
pressure at all) and about a 2.5-3 inch section of my paint flaked off.  My
question to the list is, is this covered under Ford's paint warranty?  The
truck is a 97 with 108,000 miles.

Thanks,
Chris

   Check out after market places before paying Ford's price.  I bought my Draw Tite at U-Haul.
Direct bolt on no drilling.  It is heavy so an extra set of hands comes in handy.

you think people who use cell phones are dangerous.  imagine this guy trying to monitor 15 radios and drive at the same time!!!!  There is a place for that foolishness, and that would be your home, not your truck where someone could get hurt.

I've heard nothing but good things about the LTX tires, but they are not
cheap.  I'm going to be ordering a set of their M/S tires from Costco ($110
ea) this week.  Michelin now makes a new truck tire, the Cross Terrain SUV.
It's a luxury truck tire meant for street-only use.  If you ever head
off-road, I think you'd want the M/S, or the A/T if you do serious off-road.

Hello
whatever-your-name-is-since-you-don't-have-the-guts-to-put-it-in-your-post,

So, you don't support public safety personnel? How would you feel if it was
your house on fire while you were trapped inside and I was at home
listening to the radios instead of dragging your butt out the front door?
Or maybe your tree wrapped around a telephone pole, and I'm at home instead
of landing the medical helicopter that would take you to a major trauma center?

I've driven MANY miles, without that many problems. I've had one
fender-bender during my driving career. Can you say the same? A good
portion of those miles are emergency (code three) driving. Would you be
capable of handling an Expedition at 110 MPH? Think you can drive well
enough to stay with a Police Interceptor Crown Victoria in a truck that
weighs a ton more?

I am placed under a duty of care by state law, and can be held to greater
punishments than the normal citizen if I injure or kill someone while
responding to an emergency. Therefore, I am always very careful with my
driving, and don't take unnecessary risks.

Oh, and by the way, I have the mental capacity to process all 15 radios at
once, listen to the FM radio, talk on a radio if necessary, and still be
able to out-drive most of the motoring public. I also run a laptop in the
truck at times for mapping purposes, and I can use that too with no
problems. Judging from the improper use of English in your defamatory
message, I would hazard to guess that your words are merely the ramblings
of an uninformed and probably undereducated individual. Perhaps you should
think about getting the whole story before you make comments that display
your ignorance.

Please, any and all flames to me to keep the list uncluttered.
Terry
