The Ex is the best SUV EVER made

I took the family camping this weekend (all 7 of us) had the ex loaded down and even a hitch cargo tray for more crap. It pulled like i was in there by myself. Mountain grades were like flat land. I loved seeing the minivans that flew by on flat land on the passenger side on the hills gear shifting and struggling. I can say that no matter what, I will buy only turbo diesels from now on. I dont care what fuel costs, its well worth it.

The scary thing is that its all stock, no exhaust, chip or intake. I cant wait til i close escrow so I can buy mods.

Long live the ex!!!!

Oh wait, its Cinco de Mayo.

Viva el ex!!!!

When we drive from DFW back to my parents house in NM I usually will just drive all night and let all the girls sleep the whole way to make it go faster for them. That's when she shines, 44 gallons at 19.5 hwy mpg means not having to stop for fuel, not even once. Get her on the hwy, set the cruise, and she never comes out of overdrive, not even once. And that's going from less than 1000 ft elevation here in TX to 7500 ft in elevation at my parents house....

Yes sir, the Ex ROCKS!!!
I've driven I-10 from Louisiana to LA a couple of times, towing more than 6000 pounds back both times. I love passing gassers up hill while I'm towing. Drove to Cancun last summer. The locals loved it. They don't see many diesels in private vehicles down there. I was guaranteed to be stopped at every inspection point, just so the soldiers or Federalies could check it out.

Ford - are you listening? I'd buy a new one (maybe two, one for the wife), with a 6.4 and coil spring 4x4.
