Excursion 6.0 newbie

Purchased a new to me 05 ex powerstroke today. I think I made a good buy, time will tell. It has high mileage (182k)but was fleet maintained. Seems to be all stock with new injectors. It drove real nice. Paid $11,500. Guess the mods are about to begin!

Sounds like a good one. Color is the same as my 03. You'll enjoy it. Watch out, your desire to start modding it will be obsessive.

I picked up my '03 6.0L Excursion for $17500 with 88,525 miles on it this past Friday. It had some interior issues, but I was willing to accept all the flaws due to the fact that it was an AZ/NM truck and rust free. Looking forward to modding it a little. Glad to finally have a PSD also.

Congrats on the new ride Brew! Wish mine had that few miles on it! Would have brought it out of my price range though.

I am really liking the excursion so far. Probably start ordering some maintenance parts tomorrow.

I didn't see a manufacturers sticker. And unless it is above average aftermarket manufacturer, I think they had some one graft a cowl on to a stock hood. All of the OE hood insulation and the light are still present. It is 100% cosmetic. There aren't any stickers on the underside of the hood, but I don't know if that is normal or not. Sorry I couldn't be more help.
