We’ve got a 2004 Ford Excursion 6.0 diesel that I just can’t quit on. It’s a 2wd so the ride is pretty tame. It’s got a tow rating of 11,000lbs, 600+ mile range (44 gallon tank with no DEF...) and enough torque to stop the rotation of the earth. I added a rear sway bar which improved the handling a lot. Also upgraded to Hawk LTS brake pads. Otherwise it’s dead stock.
A-* (because it’s so old it doesn’t have Apple CarPlay)
*not Ollie owners, we tow a Hymer (but this forum is the BEST for tech posts)
