#14 of 1265 Silverado Vibration
Dec 16, 1999 (6:31 pm)
I am a former owner of a 1999 Silverado, I now own a y2k F-150. As stated above, its not a rumor Gm bought my truck back, it vibrated...I found another one..a y2k 4x4 but decided after the way i was treated by the dealership and mainly by GM. I'm a Ford man... You can tell by driving it. Drive on the highway with the cruise control on. 55,60, 65, 70 you'll know if it vibrates. as far as the launch shutter on take off..i think that still exists. GOOD LUCK..just remember if you have problems after you buy...GM will be of NO help..Granted, i'm not sure how Ford will react to any problems but I KNOW how GM does.
#15 of 1265 Pricing info is in for SUPERCREW
Dec 17, 1999 (4:53 pm)
Here this info should help. My banks web site www.pctcu.com has a link for vehicle pricing and they have the 2001 supercrew. Just go to the web site select the "extras" section in the top right corner. This will take you to a page that a has a vehicle pricing link on the left side click that then select make and model search, drag box down to year 2001. You will notice tha ford is the only maker offered at the next step click that and BAM there is your info. They have invoice and retail pricing including all the options. I AM THE MAN. Hope this helps.

The Supercrew F-150 4x4 walked away with the truck of the year in the Texas Truck rodeo last month. The F-250 Superduty 4x4 finished second and the F-150 2x4 finished 3rd. I read this information at www.fordvehicles.com which is the Ford site. Before anyone says it must have been rigged, the same article said that the Silverado won last year. It appears the Silverado, Sierra, Ram and Tundra were all represented.
#17 of 1265 Supercrew Lariat Price
Jan 07, 2000 (1:53 am)
FYI: I have received a price quote of $30.5K for a lariat 4x4, 5.4L, tow package, and 3.55 limited slip. List is $33215 and invoice is approximately $29600. Not bad, but not a $100 over invoice.
Another tid bit of info: a buddy of mine just ordered a '00 Silverado SLT 4x4 (loaded) via GM's employee purchase plan. Under the deal he pays the dealer cost: 6.5% under invoice!

This truck comes with the 4R100 auto transmission.
Anyone know how good this tranny is as far as reliability and durability is concerned?
Anyone know of a good web site with pictures of the wheels which are available for this truck?
Jan 11, 2000 (2:10 pm)
Both "pickuptruck.com" and "f-150online" have lots of pics. Sorry, these URLs are written and not true links. I beleive that this truck can be had with the 4R75 only (unless California emissions ordered). The 4R100 is reseved for the Super Duty trucks.
#20 of 1265 just ordered 1/10/00
Jan 11, 2000 (2:36 pm)
hey, i just ordered my 2001 F-150 Supercrew XLT 4x4, 5.4L, towing package, upgraded tires, power seats, sliding rear window, electronic shift on the fly, and some others. I got it FOR $200 under dealer invoice. The numbers at edmunds and kbb were right on the money, dollar for dollar. So people, trust these numbers and find someone who will give you a deal. Another guy wanted appro 2,500 more. They said approximately 2 to 3 months for dealivery. Does anybody have any good information on priority numbers, dealer allotments, or anything I can do to keep an eye on the dealer? Thanks

There is a firewall at work which will not allow me to get to pickuptruck.com....oh well
Guess I'll stop at a dealer to pick up a brochure, maybe it will have the info I need. The ford website is almost useless.
Do you know if Ford's auto trannies (for pickup trucks) have good reputations as far as reliability is concerned?
I have had problems with auto tranny in cars, and was wondering if the ones in the pickups are more durable.
Anyone know if a manual tranny will be available in the future?

Take a look at the Transmisssion section of the message board at www.f150online.com/index.html
I think the 4R75 trans is a decent unit, but not bulletproof.
I suspect Ford won't offer a manual trans in the supercrew since it's a bit of an upscale truck.

Thank you for posting the link. Quite a bit of info there. The auto trans seems to be pretty reliable by those postings.
Still looking for a picture of the 17" 10 spoke cast aluminum wheels and 17" chrome steel wheels as listed on Edmunds.
