I'm thinking about having my girl friend get me this overhead console for christmas:D. http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_6970_200336003_200336003

Since i only have a standard cab any extra space i can get is welcome, especially a place to put my radio's up and out of the way

they only list it as being for 2000-'05 trucks, is there something different with the sun visors of the 99 trucks that it won't work? Even if i would need to drill holes its not something that i'm afraid to do, i just want to know if the overhead is different enough that it wouldn't work at all.

Thanks

Those things are great, I say to go for it.
I'd like to get a set for my truck as well.
It should just bolt right into your 99 without a problem.

I sent an e-mail to the guys at pace edwars (manufacturer) asking them about the fitment issues with there not being a model for the 99 superduty trucks. I'm pretty sure there's a model for the gen 1 powerstroke trucks.

we had them on our mobile maintenance trucks when i was in Wyoming. They are handy, but i personally didnt like them, they take away some visibility and made me hunker down in the seat. To each their own i guess.

I've rode in chevys with em & after awhile you don't even notice them. I think for a single cab it's a good idea.

When I drove a single cab F-150 back in high school, I put one of those in it. I put my CB up there along with my CD books. It was nice to have in a single cab however it does look better in the pictures than once it is in your own truck.

About painting it:
One of the bad thing about it is that its covered with some felt like material. This become an issue if scratch some of it off, but you could scrap it all off and paint it what ever color you wanted.
