When I ordered my 2005 new, I got an XLT because you could still get chrome bumpers and grill. I also didn't want the tan Limited or EB interior. I got every option available on the XLT, except rear seat DVD and leather. Auto climate control was not available on the XLT, nor were foglights.

Without looking at the manual, I seem to remember an optional wheel that was int he brochure, but never came available. I assumed at the time that it was a mistake in the brochure as they Ex didn't get the new front suspension as that wheel came on the 2005 SD.

As far as accessories go, I bought the Excursion embroidered floor mats (still have an extra set in the box) and the Excursion all weather mats. Still have those, too. I bought the foglight kit, and retrofittted it to fit a 2005. Since Ford dropped the underhood light, console and cubby bins mats in 2005, I bought them at the dealer and installed them.

I still have the brochure, accessories catalog and even the dealer order book Excursion pages for 2005.

Matt, if I recall correctly the optional wheels shown in the '05 sales brochure but never offered were actually the same as the '04 Lariat/King Ranch 18"s, no idea why Ford didn't follow through with them, they had those wheels in the system and they fit the EX perfectly.

I have an 05 Pueblo gold and see very few of them on the road at least in northeast Ohio.

I like your style,
I remember really wanting the rims you speak of, My dealer had a set on display. they were a Factory Forged rims and very cool, I recall them being around $1800 and I couldn't swing that at the time.
