Pic of the back with the sides of the body cut for the bumper. Haven't had time to work on the bumper mounts either
Click the image to open in full size.

Pic of the cut flare for the rear door. I marked it with some fineline masking tape and cut down the center of it with a jigsaw( which cut it like butter). I should have used something a bit thicker because they still touch when the door is closed...i'll just have to do another skim pass on one side. Notice the piece of flare on the door only has 1 screw so far...the body line must be a bit different because the supplied screws would not reach the body. i have some longer screws that should work. I hope to work on it 1 day this weekend

one last detail...the Excursion on the driver fender needed to be removed...because the ends of the badge are angled..the one on the passenger side did not need to be removed

I have a shop booked on tuesday to do the suspension swap...pics of that shortly

Dubbs,
Do you plan to swap axles from the SD to the X to get the lower gears?

Some 320G on a bondo block will open up that gap in the rear flares easy and nicely.

Before you completely remove the tab for the bumperbar, consider adding a tow hook (this one is off the rear of a school bus). I only cut the piece that was parallel to the ground leaving the vertical piece to bolt the hook to.

Spent some time working on the fitment of the flares around the door...they sprung a little bit when I cut them
Click the image to open in full size.

To add a bit of rigidity to the flares, I decided to fill them with spray foam...this should also keep them from filling with mud

looks good...my .02
spray some bedliner/undercoating over those ends if you're not going to do a full cap on them. That foam can be worse than mud when it gets wet, it holds the water in the air pockets. I had to deal with some rocker panels/nerf bars somebody had filled with the stuff, it was BAD after a year.make sure it's 100% waterproof.

Ok , got lots of pics but the mostly turned out blurry, I must have been shaking with excitement.

poor old duty getting ready for surgery.

The rear of the excursion is alot heavier than the dutys. Most EX lifts have a bit more lift in the rear to compensate for the extra weight, so I put my stock F350 3 5/8ths block back in. in order to keep my shocks, the shock mounts were loosened and rotated up until they would bolt in
Click the image to open in full size.

I stole the double cardon joint driveshafts off of the superduty to eliminate driveline vibration ( the ex has just single Ujoints at each end of the shafts. Also worth mentioning, I have a 6.0 powerstroke front driveshaft in, as it is 1 1/2" longer than the gas engine shafts....getting a used one in the scrap yard is alot cheaper then ordering a whole new shaft.

Crash bar brackets hit the tires when turning...so byebye

also not pictured, i had my custom exhaust put on the excursion, but the tailpipes needed to be cut off because they would not clear the gastank.

Ok took some quick pics outside

still lots of work to do, like wire up my winch, lights and front locker , then fit the rear bumper and get some new tailpipes made up...but i'm pretty happy with how it turned out so far.

Looks sweet! Nice job. A suggestion on the license plate....bolt a set of clips to the back of the plate (like ones used to hold a broom in the closet) then simply clip it to the rollers on the winch. It works slick, just pop it off when you need to winch...obviously someone else
