Snagged a 7.3 Excursion, going through it little by little. Needs a few more things before I put it on the road. So far new headlights, grill, 2008 F350 rear bumper, oil and filter, fuel filter, a few Riff Raff products, leveling kit, all new bump stops and sway bar bushings. I'm searching for a front bumper without over paying for one then wheels and tires. Gauges and PHP down the road. It could use some new front seat cushions and covers...but I'm casually looking for an Eddie Bower interior. I'm basically setting it up like my F350, just smaller.

I like 'em. I've seen a few people do a double take when looking at them. - I can let you know the website I ordered from if you're interested.
Couldn't find you're garage, but I do like the clean look, I also like the new badge, but part of my like the older style that has the 7.3L in the badge. I'm going to give it some time and see how I feel about the look I want.

PS. Found you're garage

Finished up with the thermostat job and the dually, looks like it might be good, gauge stayed solid no floating around, and no leaks so far but will keep a close eye on it.

Last Thursday, I check the oil right before I trip to Leadville (about 2 1/2 hrs away). Ended up adding 7 QUARTS! Dunno what the hell happened. Checked it when we got there, and level was where I added it to--no leaks nor burning. Have no idea how that happened. Never have seen any sing of drips underneath.
