Asked this a while back, but I don't think anyone own one of these trucks yet when I asked. I have a 99 SD with the V10 auto and 3.73 rear end. I would like to know when should this thing shift. My truck shifts from 1st to 2nd around 15, from 2nd to 3rd around 30 mph and 3rd to lock up around 40 mph and 3rd to 4th around 50 mph. Are these shift points correct? Every other car that I have driven with an auto shifts from 2nd to 3rd around 25 mph. If anyone else has the same truck when does it shift from 2nd to 3rd? By they way it shifts the same no matter if it hot or cold.

do you consider this topic to be about the F-250 Light or Super Duty truck?
We have a Road Test of the light duty F-150 and F-250 coming next week....Should one of the links go here?

I agree with Stanford - this is an SD topic, and is very similar to #463. The name is a misnomer and will probably result in more confusion in the future. I've been browsing both topics for a while now and they are becoming quite the same. It would sure make it easier for a lot of the folks on this site if all Ford Super Duty stuff was in the same place.
I suggest freezing this topic and linking everything into the Super Duty topic. After all, a lot of the concerns of the F-350 (and F-450/550) folks are similar to the concerns of the F-250 drivers.
I am waiting on my F-250 SD SC PSD LWB 3.73 auto since 26 Nov (the wait has just begun with a moderately small dealer. I guess I'll find out soon if his "8 week or so" statement has any truth. No word on whether it has been picked up yet, so I assume not. Oh well......

I agree with some of the previous statements refering to waiting for a 2000 model. Its been since sept 9, no vin, and I'm expecting maybe sometime next year. The new models get released earlyer each year it seems.
Just passing the time bemusing myself..

Hey fellows just a thought. Since we all three
have been waiting for so long, we ought to get
together and contact a dealer that can deliver on
a promise and use the power of buying three Ford
SD at one time as leverage. Bet we could negotiate a decent price. As Maydaytoy said, just
bemusing myself too.

#17 of 20 SD Club/ Web Page

Some places, such as Geo Cities, give free web page space. I recently got a free web page from Geo Cities, but couldn't use it because I don't know how to make a home page. So I got a free one from America On Line and made a crappy home page with pictures of my truck on it. AOL has an easy to make web page,but I don't know how to make one on Geo Cities.
If someone knows how to make a web page, they can get a free web page from Geo Cities and make a free web site for Super Duties with pictures of our trucks on it. I have a scanner and will be happy to scan the photos that Super Duty club people have, and e-mail them to the person that wants to make the page.
I think if we made a web page with some general information with specs, pictures and links to other sites, we would have a good page, and do a lot of people a big favor. I know before I ordered mine, I was looking all over for a site like the one we could make. Fortunately, I stumbled across this site and got some helpful information.

If we really have a use, I'll volunteer space for one for free. What sort of content would folk like for it? I do web design on the side...
#19 of 20 Thanks, "stanford"...

will work on trying to get this Conference "cleaned" up and organized.
Really appreciate the feedback!

please continue this discussion in Ford Super Duty (Topic #463)!
Good luck folks with that wait...do you think we should try a mass buying experiment for this vehicle through Edmunds?
