"Big Dog" as we (my wife and I) call it, is for sale. You sit high up, good view of the road, and is the best vehicle we've owned. Reliable, and for a big SUV, great mileage. I get 19+ highway at 65 mph. Its been in Southern Cal on salt free roads since new. But it's time for it to go to a good home, I'm getting too long in the tooth to use it much.
Its got an anti-sway bar, Rancho shocks, a 2 inch lift kit on the front, Powerstop slotted and drilled brake rotors with ceramic pads, exhaust temp and trans temp meters, a Sinister Diesel coolant filter, a new windshield, a new headliner. It has the 10k tow package with extendable heated mirrors. Heated front seats (seat covers), dual station air conditioning (front and rear), four speed automatic with overdrive, five full tires and rims. Removable third row seat (seats 8), power port in the cargo area for that camping icebox. I put LED running lights all around (I have the LED head lights, but haven't put them in, their yours if you buy). Body and paint are in very good condition. I'm a hands on kind of guy, and I change the oil every 5K miles (3K if towing) or one year, which ever comes first. Delo 400 15-40, and K&N filters.
I bought this 2001 Ford Excursion Limited in April of 2001, after the kids moved out and my wife and I wanted to see a bit of America. So we bought a used Air Stream trailer and took off on Route 66, to visit national parks and family along the way. We took the old family dog "Ghostbuster" (yep the kids named him) and built him a ramp so the old guy could get in and out on his own. I was a great trip, we pulled that 5K trailer like it wasn't even there.
I've been on camping road trips, took the third seat out, put a twin sized air mattress in the back, still had room for all my camping gear, bug free and dry. The four-wheeled feature is really useful from driving on the beach to pulling other trucks and boats up steep slick ramps they couldn't get up, to pulling through thick mud back to the road. I've used it to haul building supplies, putting 10 sheets of plywood in the back and shutting the doors to keep the rain and exhaust out. And anytime someone in the family needs a boat or trailer moved, guess who gets the call. Yep, Big Dog.
Thanks for your consideration,
