Default 2003 Excursion Diesel for Sale

I have no affiliation with the seller but thought several of you would be interested. Looks like a clean ride. These are hard to come by anymore as we all have read.

6.0 is a no go. Bamaboy has a nice 7.3 he may be getting rid of.

ditto on the 6.0L, but it looks really clean.

The big tell-tale on cosmetics are the seats. If they're nasty and cracked, then it's a deal breaker if the trucks going to be used for family things. Seats on that truck look good; like the bottoms have been replaced. Get a photo of the passenger seat, just to compare.

...and I'm toying with the idea of selling my Ex, but so far I can't decide what I'd replace it with. Here's a shot in case anybody's looking for a bone stock 7.3L with a bit over 160K on her.

Looks like a good buy. My ride is a bone stock 05, 6.0, and I probably wouldn't sell it for twice that price.

I tried to buy one last weekend (Limited 6.0 4x4) they took a deposit on it after it was on the lot for less than a day, said they had like 20 calls.

2 boats is 2 too many and at least 1 shy of enough.

The 6.0 had a lot of issues in model years 2003 and 2004. I have an 05 Excursion and the only issues i had was with the turbo and EGR system. The turbo I believe failed because of issues with the EGR system. The turbo was changed under warranty and I had the EGR system removed. I have not had any other issues after that. The truck's performance improved after the EGR delete and noticed a quicker turbo response. I love this truck and don't plan on selling it. What a great and comfortable all around truck!
