A 2000 Ford Excursion Limited V10 Build
Sometimes builds might appear to be an easy or “short-term” project at first glance, but then they turn into something much more complicated. We’d love to say that this can happen the other way around, but the reality is that long-tern projects usually just turn into longer-term projects. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, since the finished product often makes the ride well worth it. Still, we’d have to say that how FTE member afmedic is approaching his build is actually pretty smart.
Afmedic is working on building up a 2000 Ford Excursion Limited with a V10 under the hood. So far, he has replaced both front calipers and the brake lines, added new hub seals, dust seals, and O rings, replaced the upper and lower ball joints, put on some new 285 tires, added cab marker lights, fixed the heated seat on the driver’s side, and more. He is certainly making steady progress on this rig!
He has also laid out a very precise plan that includes his short-term, long-term, and even what he calls “really long term” plans. For the short-term, he is hoping to add on-board air, put in an F-650 lower dash, add mirrors and the rear bumper from a 2008, and more. In the longer scheme of things, he would like to do a 2012 front end conversion, reupholster the interior, tint the windows, do some bodywork and re-paint, and more.
