Ot got dirty being towed up in the mud
The 2 meet for the first time, the Excursion getting a 4wd transplant thanks to the F250. I plan to spend some time tinkering on the non-running 6L in the F250 to get some experience without risking the 6L in the Ex.

are you planing on fixing fixing up the truck? What was wrong with it?

The engine is bad - is all I am aware of at the moment.
The F250 is my 4x4 suspension donor for my 2WD Excursion.
Once I get the F250 inside, I'll spend a few minutes poking at the OBD2 once it has battery power..

Worse case scenario, I have 8 spare injectors/glow plugs.
I also plan to swap the tail lights with my '99 F350 (cracked), the rear folding seat from the '05 in to the '99 as well.

In the '99-'01 the 2nd row seat bottom folds forward and isn't very handy.
In '02+ the seats fold UP against the back and provides a much more useful space, plus the '05 is a split 1/3 and 2/3 seat which will let the dog and another person sit back there..

Unhappy My Ford? Sitting In My Back Yard

Without getting too lengthy, the easiest way to explain what I've done with my Ford, is: I spent almost a grand in Oct for a tuneup, (too complicated to explain) and in December I found out I needed to do the exhaust manifold. I got the parts, made arrangements (which fell through the first time) then made arrangements to get it done last Monday. The Friday before, I hear a noise that made me say I wasn't gonna drive it until I took it in. Monday morning arrives, and when the truck gets started, it doesn't knock, it bangs. Scary banging. It stalls. I get her towed to where she was going to get the manifolds done. I get a call the next day (that while not confirmed without a compression testing) looks and sounds like the rod bearing went. I'm devastated. I still owe three (3) years on her, and of course, the warranty had run out the previous fall (2016). She's been appraised at almost $16 grand, while I owe around 14.

So, that's what I did with my Ford. I've parked her until I can figure out what to do. This is the time I wish I had the ability to change her motor out, because she's so worth it. Oh well. Next....

Plowed 8 inches of snow off our 2/3 of a mile long driveway.
Worked perfectly (AND also picked up my ATS Springs this afternoon too).

WOW talk about a mirror finish! That first pic really threw me off on what I was looking at

Hey guys, new to FTE. Just bought a gas 2008 F250 xlt. Just installed a touchscreen head unit and seat covers this week as well as getting the front windows tinted to match the factory glass on the back ones. Husky floor liners on the way.

Swapped out the stock hitch under the bumper for a Curt 15410 XD.
Bumps the hitch from 1200 tongue to 2550 and 17k total. Tongue on my TT was over 1200 and I didn't care for it.

Welcome aboard tmayes . Those seat covers look like they fit good not my camo pattern of choice but they look good what are they made of it looks like neoprene but hard to tell in the photo. Who makes them?

2011 F-250 CCSB. Took longer to remove the old one. Super tight and long on threads.

New one weighs 80 lbs, so two are required to make it work. Installs in 30 minutes that way.
