I've been a member of my dad's automotive purchase cabinet through 4 ex's (3 PSD 1 v10). Seems like for low mirage trucks they run a bit higher than kbb BUT you get an absolute steal on anything aftermarket done to the vehicle. What I mean by that is this.... if someone straps a blower on their 2009 gt stang ... they'll want more for the car. But on the excursions... we've bought 2 ex's with+8 and+ 10in lifts for next to nothing. 16 and 24 when you take all the extras into consideration. Navi stereo lift tires wheels exhaust road armor etc.
What i'm getting at is this, if you want an excursion and the price is reasonable and it's what you want.... you won't regret the purchase. If you want to buy an ex and do something to it ( screens in the back for the kiddos... a lift.... performance.... stereo ... w/e) look for one nationwide that already has it done and then offer them what the truck is worth w/o the jazz. Worst case they say no. Best case you spend 1 weekend pay 300 for 2 tanks of diesel and 200 for a plane ticket and save 5 grand on an ex with low miles that comes with what you want. AND if you are unsure about the truck... you can get a ps.org or dieselgarage or compD forum member to check the truck out for ya. Use the internet and your community to broaden your search.
Spoil yourself. After church and uncle Sam you should pay yourself.
Just my . 02. Sounds like a pretty decent deal though
