    I found my answer on f150online.com:

    The drivetrain, chassis and braking systems are adopted from the current-model under-8,500-pound GVW F-Series trucks. When properly equipped, towing capability is up to 8,000-pounds trailer weight.

    I'm considering purchasing a Ford 150 in the near future. As a result of my employer's Fleet business with Ford a "special" offer is being extended to it's employees which is Ford's X-Plan.
    The information I have on this plan says it's a "no haggle" four percent above dealer net invoice pricing. Four percent above daler invoice doesn't seem like a very good deal to me, especially when I read in these forums of people getting deals slightly over or even under dealer invoice.

    Is anyone out there familiar with this X-plan? I'm sort of confused as to why it's being touted as a "good" deal. Thanks for any help on this

    On those bed extenders, will they fit any of Ford's Trucks? I am thinking that it may come in handy on my truck, a '99 F-150. It would be nice to have something like that at times. If they would fit mine without any major alteration, I may get one...

    Does anyone know if the bed extender for the
    SuperCrew will be available soon? I hate to order
    a truck to only have it held up because of the bed
    extender.

    I don't know where you are located but I've seen the bed extenders on 3 Supercrews here in Southern California (San Diego area).

    Sunroof Problem: The factory wind deflector that pops up when you open the roof is plastic and not up to the task. A harmonic vibration begins above 50 mph and renders the deflector next to useless and very noisy. If I put my hand on it the noise stops and the wind does not dump into the cabin as much.

    Has anyone else had this problem? My dealer has been no help ( I took deliv. 4/12 and have complained since then.) Any service bulletins?

    When I read someone got a supercrew for $100 over invoice I was amazed and hopeful. Hope dimmed as I researched pricing in the Denver, CO area. I had tried the various dot.com venues and entered into invoice negotiations will a local dealer. The prices were all at least $1K over invoice. I had almost given up when I saw driveoff.comm "quoting" $250 over invoice (out the door minus tax and lic.). Turns out the $250 was a "mistake" and the actual price they would sell at was over a grand more.

    A little disappointed, I fired off an e-mail of 10 area dealers I'd had not yet dealt with, simply asking what amount over invoice they would sell a XLT 4x4 Supercrew for (I used ford-vehicle.com's dealer locators). Responses came back, with the best being $100 over (the dealer was O'Meara Ford in Northglenn CO). I discussed the definition of invoice and what I meant by out the door. Since it matched the Edmunds, I placed my order.

    My dealing with various dealers has left me a little cynical, so I won't be counting my doors until the keys are in my hands and I'm driving off the lot;-)

    I have my own construction business. I cannot come to a conclusion on the F250 Crew vs. the F150 Supercrew. I'm leaning on towards the supercrew because of the versatility. It will not be dedicated 100% to construction use. Pricing on the two models are similar. Has anyone had the same problem?

    I bought a 2001 F150 supercrew from Klement Ford of Shawnee Oklahoma for $49 over invoice! My retired father is driving it back from OK right now. They will drop ship the truck to a Ford dealer in your area for approximately $200. (My dad wanted to go to Dallas anyway to visit friends). As good a deal as I could find. I got a very well equipped XLT 2WD, 5.4L for $26,062. Ask for Jason and tell him the guy from California sent you.

    $100 over invoice from Omeara??? Are you dealing with an internet or fleet manager? Please let us know how it turns out...I too live in CO and have tried to deal with Omeara in the past, only to discover they were about the worst dealership I have ever worked with.

    Please post an update if the delivery actually takes place as expected. I had a good deal on a truck with them before, only for them to switch to a less-expensive truck upon delivery.
  • breidenbbreidenb Posts: 5
    Matt McCormick is the internet sales manager at Omera I have been dealing with. He has been responsive, and the dates quoted have been met, e.g. he stated a build date of 5/29 and I just got an e-mail stating that the truck is built and waiting to be shipped.

    With some of the stories I've heard it wouldn't surprise me if there are a few "issues" at the end. I'm not too worried since I do not need the truck, and although I would accept some deltas from what I ordered (at invoice) I'll walk if the $100 over factory invoice isn't met.

    I'll post updates as the process unfolds.

    How did you get an email on your completion date. I have an order number and related info but only get "clean and unscheduled" on the VOPC. I would love to find an internet-based site to find out the status of my recently order truck. Can you advise?
  • breidenbbreidenb Posts: 5
    They date he gave me was a verbal. I've also hunted around for a "status" site with no luck. Wheels.com gives some general information on items impacting production....

    My neice works at the truck plant in Louisville. The x-plan works this way.
    Each employee can use 4times a year
    No restrictions on who can use
    Employee gets a PIN number to order vehicle.
    X plan pricing is approx 4% over A plan pricing.
    X plan approx $200under invoice depending on cost
    of the vehicle/options ordered.

    I didn't believe the newspaper ad of a dealer approx. 1 hr. from my house. After having a deal fall through on a Dodge Dakota Quad Cab, I decided to give this Ford dealership a try. Turns out that I really got a 2001 SC 4.6L 4X4 for $60 under invoice.
    Now all that's left to do is get some accessories when I take delivery on Friday. Anyone have a suggestion on steps? I am only 5' 3" and have quite a time getting in and out of the truck. (I originally wanted a 4X2 for that reason)
  • shamirshamir Posts: 1
    I am interested in buying a 2001 Supercrew, but I'm concerned that there are no headrests in the back seats at all. (There is little or no room between the back seat and rear window.) Does anyone know if there is a way to retrofit the back seats with some sort of headrest kit?
  • rtgragertgrage Posts: 2
    I just bought my 2wd XLT from a Great dealer south of Houston Texas for 2% over inv.
    The final price was 25,500. The dealer made a good profit and I got a good deal.
    I went to a couple of other dealers who told me that the could only come down to 1,500 over.
    The reason is that the market will bare this sort of pricing. These trucks are hot right now.
    I really like mine. Very Comfortable.
    As for the headrest question in the last post.
    I share your concern. Sure would be nice to have a headrest for the back seat.
  • ronado2ronado2 Posts: 5
    Headrests create blind spots for vision I assume. For now my little tykes won't be affected. Adults....bring your own pillow I suppose. Next...I'm a transplant from topic #702 buit can't get any responses concerning my question about 5th wheeling capabilities with SCREW's short bed. Is this a concern or not? Thanks, ronado2

    Just curious if you got your truck yet. Ordered mine on 06/17/00 from Phil Long Ford (internet sales). Got a great price no negotiating just a straight up offer from them for invoice price which I jumped on right away after double checking that price against Kelly and Edmunds invoice figures. Anyway they're telling me they are getting orders delivered right at six weeks. Seems a little optimistic to me as I would expect 8 to 10 weeks. Trying to gauge it by your delivery.

    Thanks

    Mike
  • breidenbbreidenb Posts: 5
    See post #53. As an aside, what did Phil Long quote you and were you dealing with Mr. Mitts? When I was negotiating with them (a couple of month's ago so maybe their prices have come down) the best he could do was ~1000 over invoice, he never stated a bottom line price so it's an approximation on my part.
  • mtnmikemtnmike Posts: 100
    I sent for Internet quotes from both Phil Long Ford and Burt Ford using the "Build your Ford" interactive tool on the Phil Long Ford website. That tool, on their website, suprisingly showed MSRP and dealer invoice side by side. I did a quick check against Edmunds and Kelly to make sure the invoice price was correctly posted. It was so I was comfortable the invoice price on their site was legitimate. I sent for a quote to both "Phil Long" and Burt". "Phil Long" offered the truck equipped as I had "built" it for the invoice price (saving of $4100 off MSRP). "Burt" offered the same truck for $600 above MSRP (saving of $3500). Naturally I took "Phil Longs" offer.

    Prior to using the internet I had gone to 4 Denver area Ford dealerships. Three would not move off MSRP. The fourth "Omera" ford offered $1200 below MSRP. I dealt with John Walsh and Colin Cree at "Phil Long". No pressure, no negotiatons, one offer and the deal was done. Both John and Colin were courteous and professional. These two sale persons work in the dealership's "Internet sales" section which is seperate from the rest of sales. They apparently have alot of control over the sales price as their was none of "I have to check with my manager" on the price going on. As a matter of fact there was no negotiations or back and forth haggling. It was basically a, "this is our best offer take it or leave it", approach. It was the best experience at auto buying I have encountered in 35 years. They are telling me the delivery should be close to six weeks. I think that may be a little optimistic and am prepared for 8 to 10 weeks. How long was the wait on your order???

    Thanks

    For those ordering S Crews. I was told yesterday production has been delayed a month as Ford will be building the "Super Duty's in KC also and is gearing up. True or not who knows; but that was the explanation given for a 6/21 order that got a built date of the week of 8/21 (priority 12). Oh well, it will be worth the wait.

    Thanks Mntmike for the information you furnished me the other day. I went to the dealership yesterday inquiring about my order. I did not realize that the order form I was orginally looking at was just a mock order to see if all of the equipment I wanted was available. I received a copy of my real order from the dealer. I have a priority 10, that sounds alot better doesn't it. I called the number you furnished and my scheduled built date won't be until 8/7/00. I ordered the truck on 6/2/00. Thats about 60 days before they even start making my SC. I'm a little disappointed in the amount of time it's taking, but I guess its because I'm so anxious. I've waited years to get my new truck, I guess a few more weeks won't matter. It will be worth it. Again I appreciate the information.

    I just recently signed on to townhall and I have really enjoyed all of the discussions. If you get the time, let me know how your SC experience goes.
  • mtnmikemtnmike Posts: 100
    Time frame seems about right. My order was placed on 06/21/00 and the "Built Date" is the week of 08/21/00. Apparently there was a month delay tacked on all S-Crews ordered after 06/01/00 due to factory conversion for "Super-Dutys". The April and May orders were running about six to eight weeks from date of order. I too am anxious. You should get yours about two weeks ahead of me so stay in touch.

    Just curious if any of you S-crew owners or buyers
    are leasing the truck. Curious about what
    residual you got with a "Red Carpet Lease" and what
    "Money Factor" (Rent Charge) you were given. I am
    being told for now anyway residual at 62% for 24
    months and 57% for 36 months with a 9% "Money
    Factor" (rent charge). That may change for the
    better or worse after 07/05/00 when the current
    S-Crew program expires.

    TIA

    I wasn't going to order it, but I just might. I've been drving rag tops for many years and may miss the sky view. Anyone have experience with this vehicles moonroof or f-150 moonroofs generally? Many thanks.
  • mtnmikemtnmike Posts: 100
    Lee75,

    Check this board or the other S-Crew discussion board "See all responses". I read a couple of complaints about vibration and noise when the "Moonroof" is open at speeds over 65mph.
