    Yes, The Boss's truck is a 1999 F-250 Lariat with an 8' Fisher MM. It works just fine.

    This truck has the dial
    It's really nice at times and I've had no problems at all

    It electronically shifts the transfer case AND uses Vacum to activate the hubs. Repeatedly people have had problems if they don't occasionally manually turn their hubs to keep the free.

    Secondly the vacum system has had its problems too (not as much as the hubs though). In constant off-roading (I have a friend who has 4 miles of offroad to his house) the vacum line gets torn/or moisture in it.

    I have also had the vacum pump go out that activates the hubs. About $110 to replace.

    Like Howard said,most of the problems are with the vacuum hubs,and associated vacuum system.They did have some problems with the electric shift cases a while back,but I haven't seen much with the newer ones.
