I have found a couple. Not very many. I can't find dark blue anywhere. It looks as though I will be going with white again. I was getting a little tired of white but oh well... I found a pretty sweet white Eddie Bauer in TN.

FYI,
Ford has a $2K rebate on the new 6.0 Diesel until 5/5/03. Go with the new 6.0--it is alot better motor and tranny combo.

Thanks for your help Semper Fi. I'll check it out.

BTW, are you stationed at Camp Pendleton?

388Hustler,
Glad to help you out. I think the new 6.0/ tranny package is better than the older 7.3 litre. Don't let a dealer B.S. you about the $2K rebate for the 6.0. I have a'99 F-350 with the 7.3 and it has been a great truck---and it has the K&N filter, a diablo chip and the 4" exhaust. These upgrades do make a big difference, but, the 6.0 is a better package. I like the new package so much that I'm ordering a new Excursion with the 6.0. I was staioned at Camp pendleton, from 1990-1997.

BTW,
I really like the 388 Slingshot!! Sweet boat

Semper Fi,

Thanks again for your help. I'm leaning more toward the 7.3 right now. The dealers seem more anxious to deal on them. I really don't tow the boat a whole lot. I leave it on a lift in the marina. Thanks for the compliment on the boat. I really like it.

I was in the Air Force and stationed at Fort Bragg. I played rugby for Bragg and we used to battle you guys every year at Nationals. The top three military teams were always Pendleton, Bragg, and Legeune (not necessarily in that order).

Do you have a boat out there?

388Hustler,
I really think you would like the 6.0 if you got it. Not only is the motor better, but the tranny is alot better also. The only reason the dealer is so "anxious" to sell you the 7.3 is because everyone wants the newer 6.0. Either way, you will get an awesome truck. I sold my Warlock about a year ago and I'm saving for a Slingshot--love that boat!! I'm just curious, can you post a pic of yours on this post? Good luck either truck you buy.

Semper Fi,

Thanks for your help.

Here's a picture of my boat taken back in the winter. I have some in-water pics on my other computer. I will transfer them and post them later.

It won't let me post the picture... It says the file is too large. Any idea if/how to reduce the size of it? If not, send my your e-mail and I will send it to you.
