2003 Ford Excursion 7.3L Diesel 4x4 Eddie Bauer - $13,500 obo
I am looking to part with this beautiful 2003 Ford Excursion with the legendary 7.3L V8 Power Stroke Turbo Diesel. (2003 was the last year of this engine, which was followed by the problematic 6.0L Power Stroke). I purchased this truck in October of 2009 with 142,127 miles on the clock. I am selling this truck so that I can go back to a Pickup (it turns out that a Pickup is more suited to our lifestyle than an SUV).
Here is a little bit of info about the truck:

I purchased this truck sight unseen in Kansas on October 17, 2009 with 142,127 Miles on the clock. I was told the truck has spent most of its life below the salt belt until I purchased it and brought it back to Minnesota. I was also told that the Transmission was rebuilt at around 140,000 Miles. The body is rust free (as far as I can tell), but the frame shows slight surface rust (just like all of them) just look at the photos of the bottom seam on the doors. I have had the oil analyzed twice: The first one on 1/1/2010 @ 144,700 mi, and the second on 1/23/2011 @ 154,747 mi. Both came back Normal.
I have put over $5,000 into the truck in maintenance/repairs and upgrades.
When I purchased this truck, I had planned on keeping it indefinitely, which is why I have dumped so much money into it (I believe in doing Preventative Maintenance on my schedule before the truck says that it is needed). The wife and I have been leaning toward 5th wheel campers over bumper pull Travel Trailers which is what has prompted the desire to sell this truck.

Issues with truck:

Those are the only issues that have surfaced and have not been fixed (yet).
The paint is in overall good condition but does have minor blemishes (rock chips, some small scratches, and a few dents/dings).
Body Damage Description:
After returning on a red-eye flight from a 2 week business trip, I backed into an unseen light pole on the Rear Passenger side when backing out of a parking spot. The rear doors work just fine, as well as the back-up sensors (other than not being aimed properly, so they will give false beeps, but do still work when getting close to an object...Just not a light pole...), and the tail lights. I was able to source a patch panel from a fellow FTE member who was parting out their Excursion that can be welded in place. The Passenger Side Barn Door was also slightly damaged (Fiberglass Cracked on lower right corner), but isnt bad enough to warrant replacement (in my opinion). The rear bumper is also bent (which is why the back-up sensors aren't aimed properly).
NO CREDIT CARDS
NO SHIPPING (if you fly in, I'll pick you up at the airport, that's no problem at all)
Please note that even though I would confidently jump in this truck and drive it anywhere, it is sold in "As-Is" condition with no warranty whatsoever.
