Because I don't support the Girl Scouts anymore. But that's for political reasons that I won't get into here.

FYI Keebler makes a couple imitation GS cookies for the thin mints and samoas.

I've tried them and they just don't totally capture the flavor. I'm a sucker for food, could care less about their political opinions. Call me cookie monster!

Looking forward to your reviews of the seat heaters. Leather seats without them are kinda cruel in the mornings.

I have seat heaters already but there obviously 12 years old now. The carbon fiber ones are supposed to be much better plus the five settings should be really nice instead of just the one. I figure since I need to do the phone as well and the sea is completely apart I should be able just slide the lumbar part out and then put the new one in and I'll more than likely reuse the existing wiring as long as the gauge is correct.

Installing XRF ball joints and sway bar links, Dorman autohub, new vaccum and energy suspension bumpstops to the front and rear. My brother pressure washed the undercarriage and made it rain rust, as he's prepping it to paint.

2000-2005 6.8 9.1 - 9.5
2004-2005 6.0 9.7 - 10.1
2000-2003 7.3 10.9 -11.3

So whats going to happen after 60MPH?????? Guessing after my 6.8 gets to 60MPH it will be about 6lbs lighter because a gallon of gas is gone and the end of the 1/4 mile will be approaching soon.....

Ford Excursion 0-60 1/4 mile fuel economy

Not a lot of 1/4 mile information out there on the Excursion for some reason.....

I wonder which axle ratio the V10 had. The 4.30's would give the best times.

Looks like it when up a few dollars within the last 2 days. I got it for $97.31. Now $102.95. As you can see this is the one that goes behind the 3rd row.
