I bought this truck in 2010 with 68,000 miles on it after searching for the right Excursion for nearly a year. I
drove it about a year and then the common “6.0 Problems” started to developed. Took the entire body off and
started a major rebuild/upgrade to make this truck the monster it is today. This truck gets looks and “thumbs
up” everywhere it goes.
The first thing addressed was the motor issues that plague these trucks. It was a no-brainer to put a Sinister
Diesel Complete 6.0 Solution on it to fix the common problems. This kit deletes the EGR, adds ARP head studs, puts
in updated oil coolers, replaces the o-rings, installed the new up-pipe, and comes with new Ford factory gaskets.
I had the heads machined while it was apart to make sure everything would go back together without any issues, put
in new Ford factory injectors, replaced every seal I could, and then I slapped a PowerMax turbo on it along with
some custom tunes from Eric at Innovative. This truck is only on the street tune and it is ridiculously fast!
Unfortunately, lifted Excursions don’t ride that great since they have leaf spring suspension all the way around.
In fact, this truck rode like a covered wagon when I first had a leaf spring lift on it, so I swapped in a custom
Full Traction Coil-over conversion with a soft-ride rear leaf pack to give it 8” of lift. The difference in ride
is incredible; well worth the $9,000 price. I also added a Red-Head steering box and backed it up with a hydraulic
assist ram to make the steering very precise. I cruise this truck at 85 MPH with one finger on the wheel with
The interior is in great shape (driver’s seat and arm rest shows wear), and the stereo in this thing is
ridiculous. As you can see from the pics there are TVs in all the head rests, the Kenwood head unit plays the
dvds, and there are wireless headphones for the passengers. The sound from the Hertz/Memphis Audio/Kicker/Alpine
system is not only realistic and clear, but it also puts out a tremendous amount of volume. It’ll make you
giggle like an idiot when you crank it up!
Here is a list of the upgrades I’ve made:
8” Full Traction Coil-over conversion with King Remote reservoir shocks.
Red-head steering box with hydraulic assist ram steering.
Shift solenoid in the trans for better shifting.
4.56 Gears with ARB air lockers front AND rear. This truck is right in its power band even with 38” tires.
Sinister Diesel Complete 6.0 solution including EGR delete
ARP head studs.
Machined heads.
New Ford factory injectors.
Power Max Turbo.
Sinister Diesel coolant filter.
Bulletproof Diesel FICM.
AFE intake and MBRP exhaust.
Replaced pretty much every o-ring and seal we could on the interior of the engine.
New starter 10,000 miles ago.
Just replaced the alternator and the battery cables (driver and passenger) about 1,000 miles ago.
New Interstate Batteries (10/15).
38 x 15.50 r 20 Mickey Thompson MTZ tires (less than 4,000 miles on them).
20 x 10 BMF Novakane 8 wheels.
Fab Fours front AND rear bumpers.
Hella Ralleye 4000 lights on the front bumper.
IPF back up lights in the rear bumper.
Smittybilt 10K winch.
Amp Research steps.
Limo Tint all the way around.
3M clear bra on the front and the lower panels to keep rocks from chipping the paint (works great!).
Klein “Master Blaster” Train Horns (So loud they hurt!).
Viair Air Compressor kit with reserve tank for filling up tires and running air tools.
Huge stereo with Hertz Mille front stage ($1,400/pair), Memphis Audio rear fill, 6 Kicker solo-baric 8” subs,
3 Alpine amps, TVs in all the seats, and a Kenwood Navigation unit for the head unit. (This system was roughly
$17,000 installed).
Husky floor mats front, middle, and cargo area.
Edge CTS monitor for monitoring engine vitals and reading any DTCs.
***There are a couple of blemishes that I would like to point out. The windshield has a long crack in it along the
bottom from a rock chip. I've never replaced it because I like the dark "eyebrow" tint this windshield has on it
and I didn't want to go to the hassle of replacing it. The driver’s seat and armrest show wear. The edge of the
driver’s door has a couple of nicks in the paint, but overall this thing is in excellent shape.
Sadly they don’t make these beasts anymore, and finding examples of them in good shape is getting more and more
difficult. Good ones are still holding their value and fetching premiums. I’ve really enjoyed this truck, and I
know the next owner will love it as much as I have. Well over $80,000 invested, and it runs and drives great.
I’ve already fixed the problem areas for you, so now you just get to enjoy it!

Ladies Love It: Ford Fiesta wins Womens World Car of the Year

Thu, 25 Jul 2013

It's official: A panel of female automotive writers has chosen the Ford Fiesta 1.0-liter EcoBoost as the Womens World Car of the Year, and it beat tough competition like the Mazda CX-5, Range Rover and Porsche Boxster S for the overall top spot.
The CX-5 and Range Rover won the SUV and Luxury Car categories, respectively, and the Boxster S laid claim to the Sports Car category, beating the runner up Audi RS5 and third place Toyota GT86/Subaru BRZ (or Scion FR-S). The Audi Allroad was named the Family car of the year.
The panel consisted of 18 female automotive writers from around the world tasked with picking the best car in each of eight categories, including top vehicle overall, using criteria that women utilize when shopping for a car. That includes safety, value-for-money, aesthetic appearance, storage space, child-friendliness, ease-of-driving, color, sex appeal and environmental footprint.

Ford recalling 126,000 Fusions and Milans over wheel separation concern

Fri, 09 Dec 2011

Ford has announced a recall of certain Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan vehicles after an investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. A total of 128,616 2010 and 2011 models equipped with steel wheels may have been manufactured with wheel studs that could crack and split over time. If that happens, the vehicle may experience a wheel separation.
According to The Detroit News, the company is aware of a total of 30 wheel separation incidents, one of which occurred on the front of the vehicle. Even so, no injuries have been reported as a result of the defect.
The problem apparently stems from the fact that the mounting pads on the vehicles' steel wheels may have been faulty from the factory. In addition, the wheel mounting face on rear disc brakes may not have been installed properly. Ford will inspect the rear disc face and replace them as necessary. In addition, the company will replace all of the vehicle's wheel studs free of charge. Head to the NHTSA website for more information, and click past the jump to view the full recall notice.
