"New" Excursion owner here. Picked up an '01 7.3 4x4 Ltd a couple weeks ago. Pretty happy with it, has a few issues that I've resolved already and has a couple more to take care of, but I'm extremely happy with it so far.
Not new to cars or trucks, started out as a diesel mechanic back in the 90's and now I am/was a helicopter technical inspector. Did some time in the army - 15 years to be exact and now I'm stationed at Fort Living Room, California.
Found this forum after multiple Google searches always directed me here, figured it was an omen and I should join you guys.
