Hello, first post here and hopefully soon to be owner of first diesel.
After about 2 weeks of looking through the forum and some other places for info, I still am looking for a few difinitive answers.
I plan on getting an Excursion 7.3L, with this I plan on towing maybe once a month during part of the year. I will be towing a 22-28 (havent bought trailer yet) foot enclosed trialer with the wedge front, hauling 4-6 quads and gear.
I have read the info on towing with a lift. I would like to have a slight lift, at extreme 6", or at least look like its lifted. The factory wheels are 16" and would like to get 18-19". I dont plan on putting any mud tires or huge sized ones on it. I will be buying a non lifted Excursion and having it put on by reputable dealer.
I will get the Edge setup with a good exhaust, and probably put on an bypass filter, and re gear for tires/lift. Also plan to use this http://www.airridehitch.com/receiver...html#Class8ext
My questions are:
1. What would be the best combination of wheels/tires and lift (or not) to
make it look good and still not loose much on MPG.
2. Will putting taller wheels/tires and lift be a big problem with a trailer like
3. Any other suggestions to accomplish my goal and be safe.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
