if you had about 5" more lift and some 38" tires with some sidewall it'd be better. but looks unique and thats what makes it yours

The Excursion was hard enough to get into without a lift! And I am 6 ft! My wife is only 5 ft, thats my excuse for all my lowered trucks...

Looks pretty good, but i agree, you need a bit more side wall.

They arent much different, plus the headlights I have could be baked open and the chrome could be tinted black like the harleys or another color. It all depends on how it looks when its together.

As far as the photoshoot, if I make it to one of the meets in AZ and you are there to take pics....we will just have to wait and see.

It's not my thing, but I can certainly appreciate the work that is going into it.
How much work are you having to do for the newer style front end? I always liked the 05-07 best, myself.

Well I could either update the truck by 4 years or 7 years. Plus they dont make Excursions anymore so you wont find many with this front end on it. The fenders bolt on and thats about it, Ford changed the frame from then to now. Also the radiator support is different, its not a simple swap like I hoped.

Fuel cell, the stock one was too big and bulky, few new pics on the site

Also a chop that polski-13 did over at RPS, doesnt have the new front end but he nailed the color and stance
