Can anyone tell me from experience what to expect once I get the following
vehicle I ordered (the good, the bad and the ugly):

2001 F-350 SuperDuty / CrewCab / Lariat / 4X4 / 8' Bed (long) / V-10 / 4.30
Limited-Slip Gears / Single Rear Wheels / SnowPlow Package / 2 Captains
Chairs in Front (heated), bench seat in back / Red Clearcoat / Electronic
4-Speed Automatic Trans / Shift-on-the-Fly /  Engine Block Heater / Power
Trailer-Tow Mirrors (manual telescoping I guess) / Off-Road Package /
Reverse Vehicle Aid Sensor (whatever the heck that does?) / Roof Clearance
Lights / Trailer Hitch Receiver / AM-FM 6 Disk CD Changer / Spare Tire.
Also, what is the best option for the bed, Rhino spray, Duraliner insert,
etc.  They all say they are the best.

If anybody has purchased or has had experience with a SuperDuty 172" WB long
4X4 CrewCab, I would like to hear about some of the problems that you
noticed and your advise to avoid those problems.  Also, if anyone has a 2001
Model year similar to mine, have you had any trouble with it or are there
any poorly designed functional items on the truck?  Any help would be
greatly appreciated.  The order is in and now it is just a matter of time.
Thank you for your time.  I just want to be prepared.


Keith

Hey guys.
    Does anyone know if there was a tsb # put out for the leak on the back
of the engine? Also, if anyone has the number for the piston slap problem
they would be extremely helpful. I have to go fight with the dealership
Wednesday. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

The 5.4 engine, if you've been watching the ford-enthusiats page, is plagued
with oil leaks.  Being a 99, you might want to watch for the passenger side
head leaking oil out of the rear of the gasket.  The gasket is the big
problem.  Also, some of the 5.4's on cold startup, exhibit a slight knocking
sound, which in time may escaelate into a fulltime rodnock.
