I just noticed those lights the other day myself.  I was going to contact my
guy at Ford to see if I can get it as a kit.  I'll let you know what I
discover.

I went with a friend yesterday to pick up his 2001 F350 CC 4X4 PSD LB and
noticed the 2001's come standard with driving/fog lights on each side of the
license plate. Is there a kit from Ford to add these to my 1999.5 F350 ? I
looked the mounting brackets over and like the total design. Also when I
ordered my 1999 F350 I was under the asumption that keyless entry included
the key pad on the front doors, so I did not order the keyless entry, just
power locks. Can I just purchase the keyless entry module and plug it into
the truck wiring harness without any modifications?

Sams Club had a kit that cost about $30, that did just what you ask.  I installed one on my wife's Mountaineer.  It has worked well, and has better range than my factory installed one.  They don't plug into the harness, you have to cut a wire or two, and some splices.  It is a fairly easy install, except for laying under the cramped dash.

As for the fog lights, you can get a kit from Ford, but I hear its pretty pricey (seems like $200 or so).  The lights aren't driving lights by any means, and truth be known, they are ok as fog lights, but thats it.  I would ride with my friend at night, before spending any money on the kit.  You might not want it.

I was going to check into their wattage and try to find out who the real
maker is.  If I didn't like them, I was going to get a set of PIAA's since I
believe they make a square driving light.  I just added two rocker switched
next to my ESOF.  I found some switches at Radio Shack that really look like
they belong (not a cheesy $.99 rocker).  If anyone would like a pic and the
part numbers, feel free to email me privately.

Pete

One thing you need to remember is the Ford factory fog lights may be
supplied with a  switch that integrates the regular light system.

I looked into this some time in the past and have a couple of, what I think
are Ford stock numbers that relate

Just because MS-Window's holds 90% of the market doesn't mean it's
superior.  Remember 90% of all animals are insects.

Dear Dan:
When I ordered my 2000 F-250 Super Duty V-10, Super Cab, 4x4, Lariat, I went
through a Ford accessory catalog, and ordered fog lights for my truck through
that. As well as a front grille guard, bug shield, bed liner, wood grain
dash, power sliding rear window, weather guards for all the windows, as well
as an alarm system Try seeing if your dealer has that FORD accessory catalog.
I don't know about the keyless entry thing, as mine was standard on the
Lariat. I hope this helps

Subject: How to tell if a diesil is running too rich?


My truck has been a bit "off" it's feed lately.  It celebrated 100K miles last
week, and for a long time it's been a royal pain to start on cool (less than
45 degrees F) mornings.  Now it is taking forever to warm up and it has
just an ever so slight silvery blue exhaust, especially when it is cold.  It
sounds about the same as it always has, but fuel economy has dropped
from 20-25 mpg to 18-20 mpg - so of that I think is from when I don't
plug it in and it takes five minutes to start.  Who knows how much diesel I
waste cranking it like that.   So, what things do I need to consider doing to
get this pour beast running at top form.  I don't trust the local Ford
dealership, so I need to know exactly what things to plan on replacing,
which ones I can do myself, and what I'll need to get a mechanic to do -
and perhaps the usual charge for the work.  I don't mind getting dirty, but I
don't want to break my truck either.  I've never worked on a diesel before.

Thanks
