Excursion on boggers build up

I decided to start a new thread with a better title for my build up, so it will be easier to find for reference later.

quick refresher

putting this stuff

Ok, so I finally got some time to do some work on the excursion and superduty.

First thing was to get the duty a bit lower and easier to work on so the boggers came off

no more V10 vs Diesel debate....this 5.4 with 5.38 gears and 32" tires will out pull any of you hahah

anyways on to teardown

lots of fender clearance by the way

Lots of water in the flares..maybe need a drainhole

The front end parts are an easy swap so i didnt take too many detailed pics, just mark and cut away the fenders. I went way above the recomended line by bushwacker to try to force the flares up and back a bit for more front tire clearance.

everything was heavily coated with rustcheck before the flares were bolted on

how do you like my rusted away side steps

This bracket that holds the front spoiler under the bumper is actually welded to the front spring hanger..it will need to be torched off at a later date

front end done beside the picked over superduty

started on the back and ran into problems

went to take the rear bumper off and the there are some studs tacked to a piece of sheetmetal to keep them from turning. The sheetmetal had rusted so bad it broke and i had to end up cutting one side of the stock bumper bracket off to get the bumper off. Then I went to remove the trailer hitch and ford somehow screwed a bolt with a perfectly round head into the frame...I guess it is for safety, but i had to drop the gastank and grind the heads off them to get the hitch off.

After that, we were exhausted so tomorrow we'll start working on cutting the rear fenders and seeing if the rear bumper will even fit...the rear section of excursion frame looks different then the f350s

I quote from the movie Office Space "that sure is a lot of flare."

Looks good so far, cant wait for the end product.

What is different on the rear bumper mount? The bumper itself is the same part number from Ex to Super Duty, is it just the mounts that are different?
