new to e99, have questions

Im interested in buying a e99 super duty. It is a 4/98. I am slowly learning that there are differences in e99 and 99.5 and up. I had a 2002 new and like a fool sold it in 05 and now am in a 10. I cant wait to get back into a 7.3. Is there many cons to e99 trucks. Im not sure what all of the differences are but dont want to buy a headache. Are the 99.5 and up any better? thanks for any help

There are several threads out there that are the differences, cons and pros.

Really there isnt much difference. Mainly Turbos and related parts. The thing that I find as a con is sometimes its hard to find parts. E99 bolts are sometimes smaller or unavailible anymore. And for me I want bellowed up-pipes but for an e99 they are $900, vs later models are around $250. Also even though mine is an XLT I didnt get some options like the later models like fog lights and an overhead consol.

Really performance wise, the e99 stock makes a little less hp but mine keeps up with the later models all the same. e99 also come with foraged rods (good for higher horse power).

So in my opinion e99 and later models are relatively the same and comparing them are apples to apples. they may just cost a bit more to get to where you want.

Apples to apples... if you like comparing a granny smith and a red delicious.

And Bellowed pipes for later years are around $450-500.

Definitely do your research... like said, pros and cons. IMHO I'd go for a 99.5-2000, or a 01-03 id you're not worried about PMR's.

Thanks for the input. Im gonna go look at it next Saturday, its in another state. From the pictures, car fax and the guys description it looks good. Other than the usual stuff to look for when buying a used vehicle is there anything specific I should look for?

I bought the e99. It will be delivered to me on Thursday so im pretty excited, its a pretty good Christmas gift i think. One question, where is a good source to find Lariat seats for it? It is an XLT crew cab with captains chairs but I really cant stand cloth seats and these dont seem to have the side bolster foam or i would just take it and have leather covers put in it? Any suggestions? Thanks
