Wife Making me sell it --

$15,000
Well I can't believe I'm doing this because I love this truck but my wife insists that I reduce my fleet of 7 cars and tucks -- so here goes. I bought this truck new in 2000. It has 131000 miles. I have changed oil and filter every 5000 miles with synthetic -- mostly Rotella T. and lots of mods as follows:

cryo slotted rotos and Hawk Pads and new front calipers
New Ranchero Shocks
New leaf springs front and rear
SS running boards
SS wheel wheel well trim
I removed all the crappy gold plastic from bottom and had it painted white
New Michelin tires
Replaced transmission cooler with a new 32-pass cooler from a 6.0
DP Tuner chip
5" Turbo-back exhaust
Rear end just serviced plus new rear case plate and new pinion seal
New windshield recently -- stone chip
Pillar gauges for turbo boost and trans temp
Has third seat -- never used
Tow package
all leather interior
heated seats
dual AC -- front and rear
Kenwood radio/nav/backup camera/bluetooth phone/gps…etc ($1000 unit)
weather tech floor mats and rear cargo mat
Installed a new oil pan -- not easy job
Just had transmission serviced and the Benchmark shop said it looks good…no problems
Two new batteries last year



Every time I had a small dent or scratch over the years I took it to my friends body shop and had it fixed -- he also did the plastic delete on the bottom -- that's why the pictures look like a newer Excursion.

Im sitting here trying to think of all the stuff I've done to this Ex over the last 13 years…I'm sure there's more..I'll post mor pictures when I have time..
