You have to love and hate that 44 gallon tank.
Hey neighbor!! I am about 6 miles from Liberty!

You know you drive an Excursion when...

you tell someone that you couldn't take it to DC because you couldn't fit in the garages and they say it isn't THAT high...

until you tell them to go out and stand next to it and the side mirrors are as tall as they are

When proportioned correctly with wheels, mirrors, etc, they don't look "monstrosity-like" or huge...until you stand next to them

You know you drive an Excursion when... seemingly everyone on this forum tries to get you to do all the suspension mods/lifts/big tires/hitches etc., when all you need is a good reliable 2wd 3/4 ton tow vehicle without the big empty box in back.

LOL. Excursions are not "ordinary" vehicles, so I get it when many do things to improve and make them different. A lot to be said for reliable, x2
