[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.

2001 lightning specs.

so now, where are the specs for the 1998 Official Nascar Truck??

Seriously, i cant find squat...i've "heard" it has 3.73's, was wondering if that was true...

also, heard only 3000 made and only 600 of those had the factory installed tonneau, was wondering if i could find prod. # by pulling up the vin somewhere?

the other things such as the roush tips, etc. are given...just wanted to get a rundown of how many had this, how many had that...
