there's no shortage of brake controlers on the internet used or refurbed
and
I've never seen a listing specifically for a lightning
why would there be
it's just the standard abs controler for all half ton trucks
if it's more than 300 bucks..keep lookin
I've seen buck and a half to 250

ok
but
if it actually mattered..you wouldn't be able to add even bigger brakes without changing it somehow would you

the part identification probably refers more to price class/group of the truck
buy the spendy truck..need spendy parts..part of the reason ford always wants the vin at the parts counter

know why part numbers get superceded?
because the price changes
they issue a new number so you give the right ..new..price from the right new price list
no other reason 95% of the time

right AVIATION
much different from auto parts retailing
next time you go to the ford store Dustin...ASK THEM
I think youll get a nasty supprise
..so says 30 odd years in parts sales.
.thank you muchly

and yes lightning ,lariet , king ranch, all the fancy up scale models..DIFFERENT price range than a standard v6 every thing deleate tradesman's type truck

meaning you'll pay more for a caddilac lug nut compared to a chevy one even though they may come out of the same parts bucket
there will be a caddy price and a chevy one

no I'll grant the lightning module MIGHT be model specific,
.. BECAUSE all lightnings are rear disc brake
THAT's likely why..
where as if I go to the dealer and ask for one to fit my lariet I'll likely have an option of two modules
disc or drum rear brakes

go to your friendly ford store and ask
you're not going to like the answer Dustin

peeps PRESUME the auto part is somehow upgraded..or changed
but no
they don't sell oil caps now for the1997 price..
how do you think they keep things straight
by changing the number that APPEARS ONLY on the updated price sheet

did this for a living buddy ..I DO know what the ... I'm saying

FYI in Ontario we even have/had an "apprentice program" for auto parts retailing

of course they do
revisions to the parts happen much less frequently than the price

thats why you can have the same part ..5 part numbers reviseed severial years after initial intrioduction

not due to any engineering change ,simply severial price lists have comewand gone
you really wanna sell the boss' stuff at the 97 price ?
you won't have that job long
