Subject: Annual FTE Charity Drive

Ford Truck Enthusiasts has had a tradition of holding an
fund-raiser each year in support of a worthy cause.  This
year's cause is especially worthy and hits close to home.

During the SEMA show in Las Vegas I had the opportunity
to meet with long time FTE member Darrell (aka JumpinFord)
and one of our newest members, his friend "Scooter."  We
had a great time having lunch on Saturday and hanging out
after lunch.

A few days after the SEMA show, Scooter passed away rather
suddenly during an epileptic seizure. Though I didn't know
Scooter long, I can say that he was an very nice guy.  He
was also very funny and had a lot of talent (he was an actor
who's been on several shows/movies). A photo of Scooter can
be found on the FTE web site at:

Scooter (Lee Stephan) was a young man and was survived by
his wife and two children, ages 3 and 5.  Sadly, they are
not financially in a good spot, especially during this time
of year.  Lee was unable to afford his full dosage of
medication and this was a contributing factor in his death.
According to Darrell, Lee was too proud to accept charity.

I'm sure most of you will agree that this is a very worthy
cause.  The Stephan family could use your help.  Ms. Stephan
has gratefully accepted our offer to help after I told her
to not let her pride get in the way.  FTE has set up a link
in order to take credit card donations.  We will forward all
funds to the Stephan family on the 18th of December.

Ms. Stephan has given me permission to publish her address
should you decide to make a contribution by check or money
order (please use the address only for contributions or
condolence cards, their privacy needs to be respected).
Please note on any funds "FTE Drive".

Stephanie Stephan
650 Plumer Ave
Costa Mesa, CA 92627

The secure contribution form (via our online store) can be
found at:

I will publish the total sent on the 18th.

Your participation would be appreciated.  Our strength lies
in our numbers and together we can make a huge difference
for a family that has found itself in a difficult situation.

Hey gang,

Just bought a 2000 F350 Crew Cab 4x4 PSD last July (took me a while to find
this on-line resource) and its pretty stock (Oxford white,etc)

Would like to know where's the best place to get exterior trim (Chrome
wheel-well detail, either body extensions in the "mud flap" area or mud
flaps themselves, window wind and drip gards, and bug sheilds).

Any opinions on Line-X vs Rhino-skin as spray in bedliners?

Went to a local RV show here in ATL and was exposed to AMSOIL.  Is there any
opinion on whether it's better to use this kind of synthetic and go 10-15k
between changes or do the stock 3-5k oil change route?  (Especially on the
health of the PSD).

Any other suggestions on on-line stores to get truck add-ons?

What about the additions of brighter backup lights and turn signal markers /
indicators for front fenders and Mirror mounts (I've seen the new style
Mirror mounted turn signal indicators on several F150's and Expeditions --
not the eddy bauer "behind the glass" arrow -- that's on several trucks)?
I've got the extendable tow mirrors on the F350 and would like to help give
folks more of an indication of what my turn signal indications are.

One last question -- I have a tow package on my F350.  Does it need an
electrical trailer brake assist module to be added, or does it come as part
of the tow package?  I intend to tow RV trailers (that have electrical
brakes) and Horse Trailers.

Many thanks in advance,

Mike Martin
