Poor Super Duty is right. It looks like a stud horse that was neutered.

I had some time today to tackle some of the smaller jobs that needed to be done. I put some trim pieces back on the Excursion and pulled all the wiring I need out of the superduty.

I also pulled the transfercase skidplate off the F350


And put it on the Excursion


I also put the front bumper on the F350 so it doesn't look like its ready for the scrap yard


I've done a bit of highway driving with it and I am very happy with the performance of the V10. I am able to cruise at 1800-2000rpm ( 90-100 km/h) in overdrive with alot less throttle and I can actually accelerate without it kicking down

I hauled some steel to the scrapyard and I got the weight of the excursion. So , with me( 150 pounds) the factory spare ( which is useless weight now)and 1/4 tank of fuel, the EX weighed 7740 lbs. That is about 550 pounds more than my duty....but the Ex still doesn't have the rear bumper, the rock sliders and a full tank of fuel. I Imagine it will be really close to 8000 lbs when finished and full of fuel

Bumper time!

found some time this weekend to work on the Excursion

thanks to my pal kevin and the yellow liftcart...we got the bumper in place and figured out how we were going to mount it


We ended up using a factory 1/2" hole, and enlarged 2 smaller ones


To get the bumper to fit, we had to notch the bottom to fit around the gastank


and to get at the bolts, we had to cut an access hole behind the license plate


It's on ( sorry this one is a bit blurry)


Its sitting back a bit farther then we had it on the superduty to offer a bit more protection to the rear doors and glass...it was more like a rollpan on the truck


We are going to make small caps to weld on the bumper to bring it flush with the flares


Of course there are no towhooks or lights yet...we just wanted to get it mounted for now and tackle the other stuff another day

Liking the rear bumper!

Was this a custom build? If so, did you make templates? Would be interested in one for my Ex.

Again, nice job on the build..

Agian, nice job on the build..

Yes it was a custom build, and no we didnt make any blueprints, but if needed, we could just measure mine and go from there...or build anything you want.

Looks as if you have some serious fabrication skills, you should build/sell bumpers and winch mounts.
