Nascar Truck

I was just going through 98nascartruck gallery and realized something Ford should've done. Run the exhaust exiting in front of the rear wheel like the lightning. but instead of the rounded exhaust pipes do the squarish exit like cars really do. Just thought i'd through that out there for food for thought.

Would have looked ALOT better, and been more "special"

Also, what exactly is special about this package? any performance/handling mods? or just paint and stripes?

So only a 4.6 and no performance upgrades, except a retuned computer? Doesn't seem so "NASCAR" to me...

98nascartruck will become famous soon enough
Here I am and see if I can answer some of your questions that best I can.

These trucks were mainly a appearance package and that link has the info about the truck!!

As for the exhaust...the prototype had the exhaust infront of the rear wheel and somehow Ford put it behind the rear wheel.

Got to remember that Ford did this truck because it being the 50th anniversary of NASCAR and the F-series truck in 1998. Other owners of this truck like myself wish that Ford did more in the performance of it and some owners had done that on there own. You can see by my truck I did it like maybe how Ford should have done by lowering it and having a smooth tonnuea cover and rear spoiler!!!! Maybe one day I will have a NASCAR style airdam on it!!!!

I know this post is a little dated but I got a question, what races were these trucks used as the "Pace Truck"?

These weren't used as pace trucks, it was a Special Edition F-150 that Ford did to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of NASCAR and the F-series truck in 1998!!
