See Kelly Blue Book for details: http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.kbb.com

Go to new car prices, Sport Utility Vehicles, Ford, Excursion.

As for Availability, check with a local dealer. Or maybe Nathan can tell you.

They are a little to big for me!

Pricing is out so you can order one of these things.

http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://edmunds.com/newtrucks/1999/ford/
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://kbb.com/kb/ki.dll/kw.kc.np?kbb.1;542036&95123;suv&167&MODEL138

base invoice price for an 4x4 XLT is $32K.

Motor Trend has an article in the most recent mag.
Also see:
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.truckworld.com/Sport-Utility/2000-excursion/excursion.html
and
http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.ford -diesel. com/ in the forums section under "ford excursion"

They are almost the same length of a 99 SD short bed Supercab. Within
an inch from what I remember. I think it's based off of the F250 chassis,
but I can't locate written material to verify that.

I can't recall if the tie rod is really hanging out down low in front,
which would make it very vulnerable to this sort of damage. (I haven't
needed to know this yet) (I could walk out to the parking lot, but...) On
my old truck (Chevy) the tie rod was up high enough that the axle would
usually take the hit itself. But what I always ended up bending was the
drag link (actually the pin that mounts it to the steering arm) when the
tires and steering wheel went opposite directions.
When that happens, the alignment still seems normal (no pulling) but the
wheel is off center. Either way, it's probably worth the hassle of an
alignment if you've hit something hard enough to require work.

I can't believe a fairly minor
hit would knock the steering off that much if at
all. What actually spun or got jared from its
stock position??

Thanks

Probably bent a tie rod if the end of the log hit between the two front
tires. I would bet that your alignment is off as
well. You should be able to just look and see if the tie rod is bent in
the middle. You can easily straighten or get a
new tie rod.
