Shoudl I or shouldn't I?
I spent the last 3 hours searching forums, but there's to much out there and I haven't found the answers I've been looking for. I've been looking for a good Excursion for the past few months. I have done a TON of research and narrowed it down. i made the mistake of buying a duramax and spent a ton of money just trying to keep it on the road and got rid of it in a hurry. I know the 6.0 isn't the pinnacle of reliability, but with the right upgrades it should be fine. If I buy something, I really need it to be reliable, I am starting back to school for my masters and won't have a lot left to be adding to the truck. The guy side of me really wants the diesel for towing the boat 5-6k depending on how loaded down it is and we tow from Denver up to the mountains (5k elevation gain) almost every weekend and hunting frequently, not to mention the interior space is awesome.
What I've narrowed it down to:
2004 Excursion EB 6.0 126K on the clock, bullet proof EGR's, new HPOP, 2 new batteries, good tires, K&N air filter and just did a tranny flush
2005 Excursion EB 6.0 136K, Bullet proof EGR and oil cooler, coolant filter. This is the cleaner truck, but both are what I want.
Neither has had injectors yet. Thoughts?
