Ford didn't make the largest Excursion!

Running Errands today and came across the largest Excursion I have ever seen!

To bad it isn't !

Well, eight days after Stay Puft died the wife's car got totaled in Houston. Thankfully they escaped much more well off than I did the in the roll - as in not even a bump or scrape.

UNfortunately, that meant that my budget for vehicles shifted as she needed a new vehicle and I did as well. The savings I had allotted towards a replacement X had to get broken into down payments and such for two new vehicles, and I had ONE day to find and purchase suitable ones for our needs both separate and as family vehicles.

2015 Ram 1500 Laramie for me, 2013 Escape Titanium for her. Both combined for under $45k OTD, hers has 60k and mine 33k for mileage. Every conceivable bell and whistle on both as well as full manufacturer warranties.

Not thrilled it's not another X, but it wasn't in the timeline cards this time. One day makes things hard and beyond stressful. Having said that, I love this truck...

Congrats Matt, it's a step in the right direction! Hoping both will serve you well for years to come. Both look great and very clean

Nice pair Matt. Crazy that it all piled up on you at once, but sometimes ya just gotta roll with what life throws your way. Seems like you came out OK in the end. Lay off the diesel fuel for the new baby.

Extortion, that would be about right if they were selling them new these days!

I am quite thankful the diesel nozzles are a different size around here... I may or may not have attempted to fill it with diesel twice already

Miles per tank is down substantially, but hand calculations yield damn near identical freeway mileage. Took me a minute to realize I now have a 20ish-gal smaller tank

Down the road another X will be in the future for sure, the kiddos are sprouting hard and fast, and room will become a much needed commodity. I'm hoping to have my API 1169 and CPWI by then, so financially a 2015 conversion will be a very real possibility.

That was me last month when I bought the Ex. I'm developing a love/hate relationship with the 6.0 - I've been super lucky to have received a very healthy engine, but Ford made them way too complicated.

Well, I fixed this thing yesterday - not pretty, but it works. Had to use my massive soldering tip.

Nice work getting it fixed. My minor OCD is pestering me about it not being straight and almost jumping to the other 680, but if it works, it works!

When I soldered more often at work I had a set of tweezer soldering tips that made setting components like that on straight real easy. Spent most my time swapping out 8-10 pin MCUs like the one up by the 122 in your second pic.

Hank saw this up in the Bay Area (San Francisco bay area to all you's guys who aren't familiar with this left coast) and asked me to post it for him.



Poor Explorer, "Ex Lover" can be taken so many different ways, LOL!
