Wow! Nice ride. Is that wood on your steering wheel? I want that.

I wouldn't say it is "wood", but it looks that way.

very nice

I'm sad to see that they kept that horrible radio control arrangement on the steering wheel though. damn things are hard to operate.

the "wood" is some sort of plastic I guess. got it on my 08

Dont see any side badges, maybe the limited didnt have them at any time. Does the liftgate have one on it? I have wondered if any aftermarkets make a panel to cover that big gap around the receiver tube. Now my 07 is really starting to get old with only 20K. Looks good, sure wish I could have found a good used 4X4.

x2 on that.

seeing those pictures made me realize I have my old FX4 Tow Hooks out in the garage...I'm thinking about installing them on my Expy since the frames are very similar.

The rear liftgate has the Expedition EL Limited Badge on the left and flex fuel badge on the right. Then the ford emblem is in the normal place.

As far as the radio controls they are okay, not much function there. Nicest thing on the wheel is the phone button so I can operate my phone through the blue tooth initiated on on the steering wheel. It also has turn by turn navi free, not that I will use it. If you notice there is a small GPS antenna on the roof, passenger side (check front view). I am unsure if older models have this.

Also as far as the hitch opening, I just plan on shoving a hitch in there and leaving it. Prevents people from tapping my rear end.

That antenna is the Sirius antenna. I have that one and no navigation.

I picked up a Bully Dog Step Hitch for mine to fill in that big hole. My wife is 5'4" and it really helps her getting into/out of the back for the stroller and baby stuff.

plus, it's chrome and ties in really nicely with the few other chrome pieces my Limited has.

might want to give it a look, especially if you aren't towing much. the integrated LED brakelight is pretty nice

The step hitch sounds good---will look! I had thought about finding a wreck and rob the rear cover, then cut out a small portion that matched the profile and mount that as a filler. Same color, of course.

My 07 dosnt have navigation but had Sirius, which I have not continued. I do not even like to listen to some of the trash of regular FM or AM for that matter. Kinda like having 400 sorry TV channels instead of only 100 . Wonder if I could mount some sort of wind toy in that spot .

it's too dark outside for a decent picture, but here is what I installed. about $50. worth it though. My wife/kid use it all the time getting in/out.


I think it would look good on just about any EXPY

The steps are okay, but neither my wife nor I found it was any better than the bumper height, of course we aren't short.

The downside to steps is that they are made with thin walled steel. I want my solid chunk of steel that if someone taps might just put a hole in their bumper. I have seen too many steps bend right into the bumper and cause more damage than they are worth.

Great looking truck!

I'm still disappointed Ford hasn't fixed the secondary gauges on the panel. They're hard to read in daylight. I'm sure there are secondary market backings for them but darned if I have the skills to disassemble the panel and apply them.

It just appears that the Expy has caught up to the Navigator for styling and trim in the interior now. Most of the trim features are on my 05 Navi Ultimate.
