Saw this F150 in the JY yesterday. Factory yellow 2wd with a DSO of 16-5053. DSO 16 is Philly. It also had a black interior.
The yellow has a paint code of w6644, which is a similar code to Omaha Orange that the Highway Dept uses. However I'm not having luck finding this yellow.

I'd call that more of a cargo net than a cage.

Here's one that appears to have some sort of law enforcement background:
The DSO code is for Dallas. Vehicle history shows it being in Tucson, AC for its first three years, racking up 50k miles a year. It's hard to tell how secure the cage in the back is.
I saw it last week and wasn't home to watch the live auction to see if it got any bids. It was relisted this week, so obviously it didn't hit reserve. Shocking, with drivetrain parts sitting loose in one of the pictures... Buy It Now is only $550. I've never seen a listing without an engine bay pic, other than vehicles so smashed the hood couldn't be opened.

Has anyone with one of the gov't code vehicles done the PSOM speedo calibration? I adjusted mine yesterday and was surprised to see no code for lockout count (tries remaining). I'm wondering if gov't vehicles got a modified speedo unit with no such limit, figuring they're likely to be in for constant maintenance and servicing.

p.s. The 1500 lb load estimate also matches what I figured when comparing the Bronco and V8 Explorer's ratings.

Lol I was trying to type by memory!
Yeah, I'm not real sure about that either. My single cab 351 powered f350 surly doesn't weigh 7300 lbs.
And think about it like this: the average adult weighs over 150 pounds. If we stand on the front bumper, it doesn't bottom out. In fact, it barely squats.
I'm also not sure I would want to put 1500 lbs in the back of a bronco. Maybe half that. 1000 lbs of tile squats a half ton pickup pretty good.

I'm at a loss for what to make of those numbers, though. 167 lbs of reserve capacity for hauling doesn't make sense. It should be more like 1500 lbs, shouldn't it? (Figuring 6000 lbs capacity and ~4500 vehicle weight.) A shopping cart can haul more than 167 lbs. :)

If you go back an look at the 96 f350 sticker I posted, it has F0685 and T1830. But it has a 9100 GVWR, whereas Broncos are around 6000 usually.
Spring packs, engine, trans, axles, and gear ratios all play a part in determining the GVWR.

F0046 is your reserve weight capacity for the front axle in lbs.
T0052 is the total reserve weight capacity for both axles.

|445 FE Bronco||Here out on I57 I have seen a state trooper unmarked Bronco on the highway, probably a confiscated vehicle I thought but maybe not? Itís all white and is a late model like a 95 or so, sneaky bastards LOL.|

|WhoisScubaSteve||Ok so my truck has a DSO code, which I would have never discovered without this thread. I had always thought my truck could have been a gov't truck, when I bought it it had a fire department plate, it's a red Eddie bauer, (90), had siren and cb and a bunch of other stuff in it. Has some crudely terminated wires at the top of my passenger door. Can anyone decode my DSO code? The 2 digit is 24, which is Jacksonville, makes sense, the truck has a dealer sticker on the tailgate from a dealer in spring hill, I bought the truck in tarpon (like 30 miles from spring hill) the codes above the barcode and dso, are F0046 and T0052. Any additional info is appreciated|

|E-WA Bronco||Thanks Big Blue.|

|BigBlue 94||Axle 19 is just a 3.55 open carrier iirc. And the j4d springs are normal.|

|E-WA Bronco||I have a 96XL that I bought from The Yakima County Sheriffs dept. It still had the inoperative pillar light, 4 plugged holes in the ceiling and some headliner cut away to mount what looks like 2 radios from the roof. I have an axle code of 19....which i haven't seen defined here yet and spring code is J4D which I also haven't seen yet either. Any ideas?? It is the Pacific green paint code which is darker than others with metallic flake. At the front edge of the doors you can see the remnants of the gold and silver sheriffs logo that was removed. It must have been a sticker because the doors are clean with no marks showing there was ever anything there.|

|fodder||^ Our trucks are long lost cousins! '92 ex-Forest Service rig, 5.0L and manual t-case, painted white by a PO, bought by myself at auction, various service light and CB radio leftovers...|

|PotBellyWill||I also just found this thread. My '96 XL ex-Forest Service truck that I have had for about 10 years was repainted by the PO (who I was told bought it at auction). You can definitely see the pale green color in the jambs and engine bay. He told me that it was in service in the Placerville CA area. It's an auto with a 5.8 and manual transfer case. I have some wiring for what I assume was a CB in the interior and then some other random holes in the cap where I guess cargo baskets of some sort were mounted. That's about all of the exciting stuff I know of. I have never looked at my door sticker, though. I will try to get a picture to see what you guys can figure out! Pretty cool!|
