I disagree. The Excursion will handle the load fine. You just need to get the trailer weighed (correctly) and get a WDH installed. It's your money, of course, and if you have an extra $50k laying...

Find a different trailer shop, or find someone who does custom fabrication. A good welder who knows his trade will be able to modify the trailer to fit a WDH, it's just a matter of finding the right...

Don't listen to folks that tell you 9,000 is too much for your Excursion or that it can't tow that trailer. It's perfectly capable. I tow an RV regularly that weighs about 8000 dry and I've had both...

catching up and a 20k mile follow-up

Hey guys,

Of course it varies from state to state, but there are states that require shops to provide written estimates to the customer before any work is done. You will want to consult with a lawyer (or...

My experience with EGTs while running empty is that you don't have to worry about it unless you're running a really hot tune. Despite my best efforts, I'm unable to get my truck past about 1100 when...

Do you have any URLs? Saying "On this forum over there" is a little vague.

I don't really take forums that seriously because a lot of people just repeat what they've read in other threads and pass it off as gospel without citing any sources. Do you have anything more...

Hawk Pads: $70
Pair of Power Slot rotors: $300

Same results, whole lot less money.

Also, as has been covered extensively in this thread already, rotors do not warp.

It may be the pads or the rotors, but the cementite (aka "hard spots") always develop on the rotors. That's why changing the pads doesn't help.

Wow this is quite a thread. There is some bad advice, some wrong information, and a lot of misunderstanding about what is going on.

First, the chemisty... it's irrefutable that a compound called...

It's not a funky alternative universe, there's something wrong with your truck. I'd start a new thread in the 7.3L and see if you can get some answers there.

It's also the opposite of what mine does. If I'm climbing a slight grade and the EGTs are at 1150 or so, downshifting to third is typically good for about a 200* drop in EGTs. On flat ground, EGTs...
