I still use our 1997 dodge diesel with 180K. Wore out our last RV after 17 years. Now working on a Mini Lite.

2004.5 Ram 2500 ST long bed, 2x4, Cummins 5.9, 3.73, almost 140k. Bought it from dealer in Virginia (Ford). One owner from Maryland and got a two year drive train warranty and free oil changes for life. 10k. With the exception of the Reese WD shank being 2" short, pulls like a beast. Anybody ever use a 2" riser ball or is it best to just find a shank with 2 extra holes?

The Excursion and the 7.3 I have always thought was a great combination for a TV. The 7.3 was the best diesel Ford had.

Love the Ex. We had a 2000 limited with 7.3 and sold it because wife wanted a newer vehicle. So we got an 04 excursion with 6.0 😄
Nothing can touch the excursions towing and seating capacity. What else can seat up to 8 people comfortably and tow 12k ?
