Default I'm finally going to SELL my Ford DIESEL Excursion

NOTE: THIS TRUCK IS OFF THE MARKET AS OF MARCH 3 AND WILL REMAIN OFF THE MARKET UNTIL I FIND SOMETHING TO REPLACE IT WITH. THANKS, RICK


2000 model 2WD (less R&M) with the 3.73 rear end (good highway MPGs), 3rd row seat, excellent interior (no cracks or rips; leather is OEM and two years new) 163K miles with Michelins all around.

Rear Air, tranny just serviced, bone stock always; never chipped or modded. Dino oil every 7500 miles.

Needs nothing; we just sold the boat and don't need a beast anymore.

I'd be getting a $4-5000 hauler to take it's place; something to pull the cycle trailer and looks decent. A truck like that plus cash would maybe work for both of us.

$11,900 OBO located zip code 36561 rspickering@gulftel.com or 251-981-7616

Located on the coast between Mobile and Pensacola. Easy flight to PNS. This Ex has the best interior leather of any Limited because both front seats got replacement OEM skins two years ago.

Carpet is excellent, too. 3rd row seat allows a whole bunch of kids into the truck, and stock suspension means there isn't a big step up. New Bilsteins all around.

Don't know what you're referring to about a passenger door, and

Don't know why you think you need a 4WD when an air-locker is both better and a lot less money to maintain.

Good luck with your search, either way

I'm disappointed. I was sure you'd want to swap it for my old Toyota. I linked you over at powerstroke.org. You may get some action from them. Someone there is always looking for a good 7.3 EX.

Well, thanks for the referrals, but what do you have in the Toy family? If I can find something in the $5000 or less that has good interior and enough hauling ability to do the job, then we might connect.

It is a 97 T100 with around 230k miles. They are great trucks and I can highly recommend them with the 3.4 engine. Sadly it isn't worth an EX and I am boat poor for now. GLWS

The X 2wd with locker or not would not make it back to the property certain times of the year. We would be pulling it out with the buggy alot.
I was referring to the door skin being off the passenger door.

Can somebody tell me what photo shows a door skin missing from a door? Not on this Ex, fersure.

If you tell me which photo is confusing, I will replace it with a different photo, OK?

If you think you see something, please describe it in better detail. Heck, I haven't been on a snipe hunt in years!

Their right, 3rd picture down, passenger door cover looks black instead of the beige/tan it should be, appears you can see the speaker and it shows white paint across top where it should be covered with the inner door panel beige/tan color.

Here are both left and right sides....tell me what you see other than OEM bodywork?

Gives me a good opportunity to show more photos, too!
