      Great video. I am pleased to find any info on the 7700. Bought my 2000 long bed a couple of years ago with 138K miles with a lot of the paint peeled off the hood and cab top. I have driven only a couple thousand miles so far. Paid ~ $3000. It was bi-fuel and started running poorly after a few months. Paid about $1100 to get the CNG deconverted and to get a tune up. Are all F150s so expensive for tune ups? Runs much better now. What was weird was it had already been given a tune up before because the pulled plugs were not OEM--cheap budget plugs. Funny because the tune up isn't required until 100k miles. Who would spend $1000 on a tune up only to put in poor quality plugs? I have so many questions on this vehicle I'd like to get answered. Even the owners manual is cryptic as half the content isn't for this model. I can't even figure out how often the transmission/transfer case fluid needs to be changed. How do I know if my rear and front diffs fluids need to be changed at 150k miles, or do I have the kind that never need to be changed? I think this truck might have done some serious towing in the past. How did you know your transmission was bad? Did you know yours had a rod knock before you bought it? When I start up the engine, I am almost think that I hear some clanging, or maybe I am just paranoid about the valves. Does the 5.4 Triton sound a bit clangy on startup normally? Another weird thing: the owners manual specifies 10W-30W oil but the oil cap states 5W-20W so that is the only type the oil change shops will put in. Does your oil cap say 5W-20W? Sorry for all the questions. I'm just so glad somebody seems to care about this model.

      Hello there! sounds like you got the towmaster supreme, ! Tune ups, well it depends on what was included in that, the coil packs do fail on these trucks, so maybe those were replaced along with the plugs, or it had a spark plug eject problem and needed repair? Without service history, you're really just guessing. I knew the truck had Rod knock when I bought it, the valves are a bit noisy on my other 2002 F150 when it starts up, rod knock has a pretty specific noise and its pretty loud, not just ticking, sometimes hard to diagnose, there are some guides on the internet on how to figure it out. The front and rear diffs, I'd follow the factory service intervals, the rear diff on mine, the input shaft failed so I drained and replaced it then. The system is sealed like the transfer case, so technically it doesn't need changing that often. Now transmissions need attention, this 7700 had NEVER had a fluid change! it had the stopper in the trans oil pan that is left when it leaves the factory, I did a lot of reading on auto trans, and most failures (BMW\Audi\Ford\Chev) are from failure to change fluid at intervals. Towing increases the interval required,(often like every 40,000miles but light duty double or triple that) there are guides online on how to check the fluid color of your dipstick to figure out if you need a change, I highly recommend staying on top of this, having learned now what I know. I have the same fluid in my other truck for 40,000km now, the color is appropriate but if I towed more I"d do a full flush (they sell trans oil pans online that have a drain plug, I've had enough ATF in my hair now to last 10 lifetimes) I use 5w20 in this truck per factory manual (I've learned through 40 cars to follow the manual) the bearing clearances and engine tolerances are built to run on specific oil viscosity (who knew!) I had a misfire in this truck, hard to diagnose, the plugs looked perfect but were bad, and the coil pack misfired only when very hot, it was very hard to get it right, maybe the dealer who did the tuneup had the same issue hence big money! Hope this helps!

      I paid $3,500 USD for mine. The previous owner had just replaced the transmission, but the registration was out of date. $4,500 in so far and the only issue I have now is the heat doesn't blow hot enough, so after I flush the coolant/heater core, I should have a perfectly running truck! Going to get some sexier headlights and look into a more aggressive hood and bumpers. It's already high enough off of the ground for me and came with Goodyear Wranglers with about 50%-60% life in them. It handles on the road like my ex's '02 F250 Diesel with a 4'ish inch lift. 4x4 cannot turn into parking lots easily without grinding (Insane downpour and stuck vehicles left and right at work).
      After 1 short but long week of daily driving and work with this truck (2,100 miles), I am loving it! No huge complaints minus the butterfly doors being stubborn sometimes, but for my first vehicle purchase, I'm loving it!

      Best way to check is goto rockauto.com and you can compare parts compatibility between the regular and 7700 models. (listed as normal F250 for that year) I looked and they appear to be the same ball joint.

      Depending on your door code, you may have a 4R100 instead of a 4R70W. You can also tell your rear end ratio and if it is limited slip or not. For anyone reading who has one or is interested in getting one.

      nice info!! all trucks should have a limited slip but it does corner without binding, I think partially why the Tundra doesn't have it at all! the truck sold a few months ago (shame it was so nice by the time it was completed!)

      Kingsoupturbo if you look on your door tag and on the axle section it has a “26” it’s open. I can’t remember the letter but if it’s a letter then a 6 (example B6,E6,L6) it’s limited slip, and if your second number isn’t a 6 it is something other than 3.73. And I don’t get it either, I hate open diffs on a pickup

      Nice! this truck had the same rear end, I am not sure if it had LSD or not actually, I suspect it maybe did not, 3.73 though, its interesting the options, I wonder why someone would not get a limited slip? it does make less noise going around tight corners then my 02 F150 non HD with a LSD. 86k is pretty low, very nice!

      I owned an 01 7700 4WD and it was a money pit. I don't know what the previous owner put it through but it was pretty bad from the get go. Never did find out why the check engine was on from the time I bought it to the time I sold it, I through so many parts at that thing and it never fixed it. The Heavy Half tons are an interesting concept but they don't hold a matchstick to a true heavy 3/4 ton. I went from my 7700 to an 01 Gas F350 4WD and there is no comparison to how it handles with a loaded trailer. The biggest downside to the heavy half trucks is they only have a small T-Case and a small semi floating rear axle in comparison to the Sterling 10.5 that the F250 & F350 SRW trucks get. Full floating is much preferred for real heavy duty work like towing and hauling. The 1500hd Chevy's were the same way, the 1500hd & 2500 non hd only came with a semi float while the 2500hd & 3500 SRW came with the full floating axle. All in all, I am WAY happier with my F350 SRW than I ever was with the F150 7700. To each their own though, they are decent trucks but just not my cup of tea.

      For sure a real 3/4 ton + has much higher towing, its sort of an in-between step with these trucks, good mpg, small size for maneuver but with quite a bit higher payload and improved towing without going up to a huge truck. I've found out that trucks can be neglected for many many years before someone will sell them, the million little things will nickle and dime you to death. Its why people just buy new trucks and discard barley maintained older ones for nothing.

      Hi I have a 2000 7700 series f150. Its 2 wheel drive. Great for towing. Smooth ride. very well built. Has 154000 on it. got for 5k 4 years ago. Can they be converted to 4WD somehow?

      I'm curious about mine, because it has an electronic shifter (yuck!) And no "4x4" logo anywhere on the exterior... for some reason I thought that there would be a manual shifter and a billboarded logo on the back of the bed somewhere

      Its a pretty big deal to convert to 4wd, different trans, transfer case, front axle, spindles, suspension, is all different, a lot easier to sell your 2wd and find a solid 4wd if you need it! Glad you like it!

      Hi guys.... I'm looking at an F150 7700 Off Road that has Gas / Propane fuel. Owner says you can flip a switch on the dash to toggle between the two fuel options. I can't find out any info or opinions on this type of vehicle. Can you help me out? It has 189 K miles, 2003, manual windows, radio and cd player and 6" lift and new 17"tires for $5,500. The Propane tank sits in the 6-1/2' Bed.

      Exciting! mine is already fairly high, but its got the same front Torsion bar suspension, so you can get aftermarket torsion keys to crank up the ride height then i'd assume a standard leaf bar block in the rear to get an extra couple inches! I'd probably go air suspension in the rear though, get a better ride quality, better load capacity and make it higher if thats what you want!
