My favorite local dealer (Beechmont Ford, Cincinnati, OH) got a '99 SD in. I
haven't ventured that way yet to check it out, but I will soon. Hopefully I'll
be there real soon because they approved my vehicle substitution. I currently
own a very problematic '97 250HD 460 E4OD 3.55LS SuperCab 4x4. It's sharp,
black and silver two-tone. I hope to own a VERY LESS problematic '97 250HD 460
E4OD 3.55LS SuperCab 4x4.

Getting way off the subject, does anyone know when you do a vehicle
substitution, do you have to stick to the same or similar truck? I thought I
heard that as long as the MSRP is =
SuperCab V-10 4x4, would be sweet.
