My new ride.

Not mine technically. This is my wife's new truck. We sold her very basic 2003 XL F150 regular cab so she could have something nicer. She says I get all the nice stuff so she's pretty excited to have a nice vehicle to call her own.

Pics are in the garage, haven't had any time to get it outside just yet.

2008 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer with 32,000 miles. Its decently loaded with power liftgate, power folding third row, dual climate and radio, steering wheel climate and radio controls. Power/memory seats, and second row buckets.

PS.. I think this fits in the F-series forum even though it isn't truly an F-series lol. Close enough.

Haha. They put food on my table, I'm willing to return the favor. Gas isn't that bad though, I might fill the Ranger one time in 6 months, the 88 about once every 3, the diesel gets a tank about twice a month, and this will probably only be once a month. My wife and I might put 20,000 miles a year on this and the F250 combined.

Also, vehicles that get good mileage don't seem to be my style lol. The diesel will get 21mpg on the highway which is better than my Ranger ever did!

my grandfather had one almost the same, his was an EL and had DVD nav.
they are very nice Trucks, i took his up north once. great ride to ride in, but like a Tank at the Gas pump.

Edit: One more thing, get all weather floor mats. the carpet in that is a PITA to clean once its dirty.

I have the WeatherTech digital fits in my superduty and definitely plan to get them for this. Window tint and WeatherTech's are the first and only things on the to do list.

Wow do you guys live close to work or what? I live 2.5 miles from work and still seem to put $100+ in every week and a half or so. Although this time I haven't gotten gas since April 15th

I'm with you I'm more into gas guzzlers, but sometimes you gotta bite the bullet and have at least one semi fuel efficient vehicle lol. Fusion takes that task. I avg about 24mpg in it, but have see as good as 29 and as little as 18mpg(ran e85...never again) If I drive it like I stole it I can still get 20-21mpg which is pretty good for a 240hp V6.

We both live close to work. Also its only like 6 miles from one end of town to the other so no where we go is that far away unless we are traveling.

I have no need for a fuel efficient econobox, I'm not struggling to fill the tank on any of my vehicles. If I'm spending thousands of dollars on a vehicle then I'm not buying something I don't want.

The info center said it's average was 16mpg. I'm not sure what the circumstances for that were though. I would imagine it will get at least 18 on the highway, I haven't put enough miles on it to be sure though. And yes its 2wd.
