bought the wife a new (to her) vehicle

Just got her a 2005 ford Expedition Eddie Bauer with the 5.4, 4wd and loaded to the gills last night. She loves it.


2008 F250 6.4 - a little of this, a dash of that and soon you have made a truck the way Ford should have made it!

Nice find, Gregg!

I keep telling Lisa I'm goign to get here an X, but she says it's too big. I say, the more to protect you and the kids in an accident. Simple logic, and it would give me something else to play with . I'll probably end up with an Expedition, or Explorer. She REALLY has her eyes on a newer F150 though. At least I wouldn't feel like a douche driving any of them

LOL, my wife drives my truck sometimes too, and loves the looks she gets

I have heard some horror stories about spark plug replacement in those 5.4's. One guy I know here at work paid $600 to have them changed, and another paid $1300. They cost more if they're stuck in there, and even worse if they break off. I guess it's one of the biggest faults on the 5.4. They sure as hell sold a LOT of them though so maybe those two cases were flukes

I'm becoming a big fan of leather in cars . Looks like it was a great buy. How many miles?
