[font size="1" color="#FF0000"]LAST EDITED ON 31-Dec-00 AT 06:32 PM (EST)[/font][p]You could have saved some typing by clicking "Specifications" on the right side of the screen, all current Ford truck/van/suv specs are listed. :-) We can usually beat the print magazines with such information because we don't have a 2-3 month lead time.
