I think I saw from an earlier post that he is talking about his barn doors of the EX. Ergo, nice vehicle theft system you got there TXtinct! What is the sign for a fence, I can make it to the gate in 3 seconds...

Temecula to Anaheim? There is no easy route...what do you take? 74? I drive from Rancho Cucamonga to West LA daily (Not in my X, though).
I go by way of hell...15 to the 91. I leave early, takes about an hour to hour and fifteen. I hope you leave early too...10 or 60 is no treat either. Guess we do what we gotta do.

Really makes me glad to live where the traffic is at least bearable

That would be a great idea if I wasn't 6'3. Drove both and they have zero room up front let alone with me driving and being able to put anyone behind me....

I saw it too, but it is what it is. It aint like all of us are always grammatically correct, doncha know.

But still, most of us still try to persevere.

Oops, my turn!

The last few days I've been tearing apart the Ex to do the oil cooler. I flushed the coolant last weekend and it was crazy how much gel came out. It looked like milky snot floating around in the water. All that snot clogged the oil cooler...but I was expecting that. The only thing left to take out is the HPOP, clean that and the turbo and I'm ready to put it all back together. Takes forever doing it in .75-1.5 hour chunks. At least the top of my engine will be spotless when I'm done.

i used mine today to do some running around, then took my tools down to work which i start on monday! then i filled her up with gas...which got my thinking tonight.

so i was adding another fuel up on my fuelly tonight, thought i would add up the miles and $$ spent in the last year.

between my 1998 5.4 4x4 expedition and my 2002 V10 4x4 excursion:

i have driven a combined 23,410 miles in one years time.

in that one years time i have spent $6,558 in gas alone.

would i trade that for anything? none! i love my trucks. only thing i find interesting is i got 5,000 more miles on the same amount of money in gas with the expedition verses the excursion.

alaskanford's profile | Fuelly

(i also included the miles/$$ from my black 2000 excursion that was totaled almost a year ago)






its interesting to see it broken down.
