Tony, from the Dynomometer tests that have been performed by the other
members, the borla exhaust added 15 hp as I recall keeping with the
same gas mileage. This resulted in a nice low rumble at idle and nice
deep sound at full throttle.

As for the rims, watch what you buy. Ford went to a new hub design on
the '97s. Just make sure that it will fit. Other than that, I don't
recall what those rims look like.

Finally, the performance chip, doesn't change overall
horsepower/torque, mearly ships the high point down about 500 RPM. K&N
air filter: no effect. Pulleys, I haven't heard anything here about
changes like that, so, try it and let us know.

Have fun playing Tony, Chris Coleman, '97 Expy XLT, Smittybilt nerf
bars, K&N air filter, Pioneer FHM-75 double din radio.

Art,
I've ordered a "Westerner storage body" made by Knapheide. It will
give me some storage in compartments on the side but I don't think the
sides will stick up too high. It should be good looking; the place I'm
getting it had done another truck just like mine and the salesman said
it was snazzy.
I got the crew cab. It will be kind of long but I wanted to be able
to carry passengers and maybe let my wife sleep while I drive. Someone
pointed out it's nice for hauling groceries.

Neil

I have a 1999 F350 Crew Cab 4X4 PSD and my garage is 82" high and my truck
clears the door by 2".
