Since this is probably gonna go downhill anyway, I thought I'd throw out something that I was pondering on. Got to thinking about the payloads of 3/4 pickups and wondered what the Excursion numbers would look like, so I looked them up. A 2002 4x4 Excursion has a listed payload of 1740 pounds. With 9 seats, you could easily exceed payload and GVWR with only passengers. Just thought that was interesting. So, if carrying more than a few people, an Excursion can't technically tow anything.

9, 200 lber's would do it. Interesting look at things, but it could easily happen.

He evidently is not a member of FRF or he would have been taken to the 'woodshed' over this.

Think you'd be hard pressed to even seat (9) 200# people in it.

I weigh 200 and I can fit in any seating position in an Expy, so I think I could be reasonable comfy in an Excursion. Try telling a guy in an Excursion that he can only safely carry 400lbs more than the guy in the Honda Odyssey and see what kind of look you get!!! I know this is just stirring the pot, but I still get a kick out of it!!!!
