  1. I just got my 1999 F150 back on the road.  The transmission coolant lines are prone to rusting out as the run together.  You would think this would be a simple job but it is a nightmare.  It is impossible to get to the connections at the transmission.  The heat shields are between you and the transmission fittings and the body sits on them.  I had to destroy them with a air chisel and wiz wheel and then remove the fittings with an crows foot on an angle drive.  I  should have cut a hole in the floor.

  2. There is a Dodge/Chrysler section on this forum, a Dodge club, and a Dodge facebook group that are all active for this year Dodge.  I would suggest you post in the Dodge section of this forum and join the Dodge Groups.  There  are two suppliers of Dodge parts for this vintage and they are both very good and helpful.  From your pictures the car looks complete and should run with good tires.  The tires have tubes in them which means you can repair the tubes with a repair kit and get it moving.  The engine is very basic and will probably run with an oil change and draining any stale gas in the vacuum tank (does not have a fuel pump).  Have fun with it.  If you need help PM me.
