Stock 7.3’s are garbage power wise lol. And this is coming from someone that loves them. I want to do some more to mine but my biggest gripe with it is the trans. I’m contemplating a ZF6 swap, but I don’t want another project. I’ll probably do a TC lockup switch and OD lockout on toggles on the center console since it’s bearable to tow with if I manipulate throttle for TC lockup and lock out of OD until 65.

Mine has been parked in the garage clean for the past two weeks. It’ll come back out when I inevitably sell the Cummins.

one of the funniest things with searching for shit for this thing, is when you search for "excursion" parts on ebay, it thinks you are misspelling expedition also. :rofl:

Theyre 8x170 but the backspacing and hub diameter differ between pre ‘05 and ‘05+ trucks IIRC. ‘05 was when they went to coil spring front on the SD’s.

:werd:

Spacers are sketchy, agreed.

the wheels i have are kinda pitted/shitty and while id looove to upgrade... snagging a set of these may be nice too:


dude says they are basically new take offs that were in a warehouse somewhere and he's had a bunch of them and they have good reviews

hmmm
same dude selling the ones that are on my truck already that i posted before.

i don't mind those.

wish they were a sneeze wider though.

silliest thing about all this is those black rhino wheels i joked about earlier are actually made in the right size/offset.


run 275/60r20 like this... sits good i feel, fills the wheel well nicely.
