You know you drive an X when.... you tell your buddy that you don't need the utility trailer to bring home a half assembled portable basketball stand with the base still filled with sand.

When you're catching up with your brother in law cause you haven't seen eachother in 6+ months and you are telling him you bought an ex........ He asks what size v-8 it's got in it......you say 6.8 V-10.......... His mouth drops as he says (verbatim) "THEY MAKE THOSE?????"

Lol, that really just happened.

The 3 guys loading lumber into/onto their short-bed pickup at
Home Depot stop and stare in amazement as you slide in 4x8 sheets
of plywood AND 10' long lumber and then CLOSE the doors and drive away
- IN THE RAIN. Priceless.

When the man riding around with his wife in their pruis gives you a respectful head nod and when getting kicked out of the house isn't so bad because you got seats in your vehicle that more comfortable than anything in your house and a dvd player

You know you drive an Excursion when you don't need a trailer to transport your 4wheeler...because it fits in the back, without losing the second row seating. Ha!

I did this with my xr600r dirt bike .. showing up for riding and watching everyone's face when i pulled the bike out was funny


sometimes i do this stuff just to watch the faces of people..... or i like it when they ask me "how much it cost to put that motor in there" when they see my badges in the side


T444E, VT365,MaxxForce, International Domed Label, 7.3L, 6.4L and 6.0L badge

I'm a newbie, but will have to go back through this thread...

My contribution:

You know you drive an excursion when you can fit 3 people and a full size side by side refrigerator inside.



Visiting family last weekend and they had an extra fridge for our garage, uhaul was out of open top trailers so we decided to give it a shot. It almost fit without folding down half the second row.

You know you drive and Excursion when it's pissing down rain, the road is flooded, and you don't worry about getting anywhere you need to...

You know you drive and Excursion when the road is flooded, everybody is stopped, and you kindly excuse yourself as you drive through the water without a problem...

Which group was that?

When I can get a reliable vehicle that can seat at least 8 passengers (and belongings) without being packed in like sardines, is as safe in an accident, can tow 10-15k# and gets 50+ mpg, I might consider it.

Lol, some local hippy group that looks like they haven't showered in 3 weeks, the kicker was they were passing these flyers out in an old Cutlass that could have crop dusted 5 acres! lol
