    I thought I'd just I'd just start a thread for the expy. It'll be a mild build, I don't have any real big plans for it, just whatever pops into my head or whatever parts fall into my lap.


    2005 expedition Eddie Bauer 4x4/awd 5.4 125k miles

    I've done the dreaded plug change, the passenger exhaust manifold, fuel pump module, and both cam phasers all around 100k. Other thank that she's bone stock, for now.

    I picked up some rims and 35s of CL last night, and ordered up my spacers lift this morning, should have this thing lifted this weekend, it's not a hard lift to install.

    Here's an old pic as it sits, and some of me test fitting the new rims and tires.

    The lift will allow for 35s but the running board have to go and the front valence needs a bit of trimming, but it should sit like this when it's done

    Maybe you'll see a roof rack on the side of the road headed to or from work
    one day. Lol.

    MAYBE! The set of wheel and tires I got came with a full size spare, trying to think of a way I can fab up a rear tire carrier or something. It wouldn't look bad up on a roof rack either. Hmmm...

    Got lower control arms dropped, struts are loose and ready for spacers. They should come in today and I'll have it finished up tonight! [​IMG][​IMG]

    Don't mind my redneck block under the frame, there's still a jack under it as well as a jack stand. Just some extra support while I work the control arms up and down.
