Expedition Opinions?

I may buy a used expedition in the VERY near future, i was just curious to know from other members what they're own opinions are on them from 97 and up? And is it true that the ex is heavier then my f-150 sc? i also heard that the ex is the equivilent of a 3/4 ton ? Thanks in advance, i'm looking at adding another member to my fleet!

I had a 2000 XLT..great truck..same suspension as the f150. The 5.4 in that year had a machining problen. When the milling machine shaves the block, when it got to the end of it, it would leave a little chamfer. That would cause the head gasket not to seal properly. My expy had a noticible oil smell when idleing and parked..while driving you couldn't smell it..the leak never drained enough oil to worry about tho..would i buy another one??.....YUP!.

they're good if you need a station wagon( jk) as mentioned the head gasket sealing on the pass side and spark plug threads on pre 99models,if you get a limited it has irs and coils better ride but less capacity.


a moments silence for the shelbyx,i hope her new owner enjoys as much.
