Is it a 99.5 or 2000 model?

Quick question. I'm looking at getting some parts for my truck but need to know the year it was made. When I purchased it I purchased it as a 2000 model, but the sticker inside the door says it was built in 12/1999. So is it a 99.5 or a 2000? Thanks for any help.

Brian

The cutoff was 12/8/08.

To the op-we need more info on your truck to tell what u have. Do you have an AIH and AIH relay? What size are your intake plenums? is there foil on your hot side IC pipe? These are some of the easiest ways to tell

So if it was manufactured on 3/99 it's actually a 2000?

For the OP, being manufactured that late in 99 I would assume it was sold as a 2000. The actual manufacturer date is often from the previous year. That's just a reflection of shipping and build times as opposed to model years. I would feel safe in saying you have a 2000. If you are in doubt though, just take the old parts in with you if you can. I bought some shocks for a 99 to put on my truck but apparently I have the 2000 shock setup. So it never hurts to have the originals with you, my issue is more related to the mid year model changes in 99 though.

12/8/98 is the cutoff between an early 99 and the 99.5-03 model.

If he has a build date in the month of Dec in 08, it is not a 2000. It is a 99 or a 99.5.

Check the stuff I said above. That will answer your question. There are more ways to tell than what I posted so if you can't tell by that post back and well help you some more.

Ok, just to clarify, I have a f250 built in 12/99. I just got done running a carfax not a month ago and it said it was a 2000 by there records. But my manuals that came with the truck are for a 99. I ask due to getting a chip programed for the truck. Thanks

OK my bad guys......I was only halfway paying attention. I was talking about the early to late 99 cut off......sorry.

That being said, idk what year you have. Ford should be able to tell you by the vin #. There are really no differences between a 99.5 and a 2000 though.

As for getting a chip, you just need to pull your PCM and give your engine tuner your PCM code .

Do you have the title for the truck? I would go by what that says.
