Was there a 98 model?

I have serached and searched and have not found any 98 model trucks with the powerstroke. I know that 99 started a new body style but what about the 98's?

No '98's, just late '97's and early '99's.

i heard from a ford rep that there was no 98 superduty (f-250/F-350) truck..they had that i wanna be a Lt duty truck thing that was the body style of a 150 but was a 250 essentially it was the way a 1/2 ton should have been sprung...i think they were transitioning from the OBS 7.3's to the Superduty 7.3's. just 97.5 and 99's which are rare to they are usually 99.5's

My truck is a '97, ordered it Sept. of '97. I was told that they would still be taking orders for a few more weeks after I did mine. I believe the forum says 94-98 because the E-Series work vans carried the same motor into the '98 model year.

And, as for that Light Duty F-250 (97-98), WHAT A POS. It was a springed F150 with 7 lug axles. ???? What was ford thinking...

The only Ford with 7 wheel studs were the '97-up f-250 light duty trucks that did not have a diesel option. Not sure what he has, but if it is the same body style as your's it should have 8 lugs. If it looks like a '97 f-150, it should not have a PSD.

I would let you know more but just recently the truck and the stock trailer that was hooked on it were stolen. The truck was found about 5 miles away burnt to the ground and the trailer never has been recovered. I wouldn't swear to it but I am 95% certain it was a 7 hole rim f250. I know it had the powerstroke and I walked by one day and saw the 7 studs and thought huh I have never seen one of those before.
