Ford Excursion Questions and Answers


  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for a 2003 Ford Excursion Towing 6720lb Dry Weight Trailer
  • Any time the weight of the trailer exceeds 50 percent of the weight of the tow vehicle a weight distribution system is recommended. When using a weight distribution system with your 2003 Ford Excursion you would have the towing capacities of 12,500 lbs total trailer weight and 1,250 lbs of tongue weight. Based on the dry weights you listed for your trailer you will need a WD system as your vehicle wouldn't have the rating for the trailer without it. The best way to pick out a weight...

  • What is the Difference Between Programmers that are California Approved and Those that Aren't
  • California has stricter emissions laws than other states. This means that vehicles in California have to have specific equipment on them that is more aggressive at eliminating vehicle emissions. This requires specific programmers with the proper tune that are compatible with California vehicles and their equipment. So if you lived in any state other than California you could use the Edge EvoHT # EP16030 on your 2000 Ford Excursion with 6.8 liter V10. If you did live in California you...

  • Can Weight Distribution Shank be Used Upside-Down to Keep Trailer Level When Hitched
  • As long as your particular weight distribution shank is not specified as being for Rise-Only or Drop-Only use then it can be used in an inverted position to give you the height adjustment you need to keep your trailer level. For example, Reese Weight Dist Shank # RP63971 must be used in the drop position only while # RP54970 can be used in either the rise or drop position.

  • Front Mounted Receiver Hitch for 2001 Ford Excursion
  • We do indeed have a front mounted receiver that's a fit for the 2001 Excursion, part # 65022. The hitch would install directly to the front of the frame members behind the bumper. Installation involves removing the bumper, and sandwiching the hitch in between the frame members and the bumper as shown in the instructions I've linked. If your Expedition is equipped with the OEM foglights, they'll need to be relocated or removed for the receiver to fit. The Curt # C31014 front mounted receiver...

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control Recommendation for 2000 Ford Excursion Towing a Coachman 2297
  • If you have a Reese weight distribution system you could just swap out to the correct spring bars that would work with the Dual Cam Strait Line System # RP26002. Based on the capacity of the # RP66074 that you referenced it looks like you need 1,200 lb spring bars. If you have a trunnion head you would want the Trunnion Style Weight Distribution Spring Bar Kit # 6666. If you do not have a Reese system and want to use the dual cam setup your best option would be to order a properly...

  • Roof Rack And Cargo Carrier For 2001 Ford Excursion
  • We do offer a roof rack system that will fit your 2001 Ford Excursion with the factory side rails. I recommend the Yakima roof rack that has 58 inch round crossbars. When ordering this roof rack system you will need to order part # Y00409, part # Y00221, and part # Y00214. We currently do not offer any roof baskets that have open ends as you are describing.

  • Rear Air Helper Spring Recommendation for a 2004 Ford Excursion
  • I spoke to my contact at Firestone and he assured me that the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2255 that you referenced will work on the rear of your 2004 Ford Excursion as long as your vehicle is 2-wheel drive. I asked him about your limited bump-stop to frame clearance and he pointed out that it would not be a concern because the bump stop will actually get removed in order to install the brackets of this kit. This is one of the nicest air helper springs on the market that...

  • Which Performance Tuner Will Provide More Increased Gas Mileage For 1999 Ford F250/2001 Excursion
  • I spoke with my technical contacts at both Superchips and Edge Performance and have the following information regarding which performance tuner will improve your mileage on both your 1999 Ford F-250 and your 2001 Ford Excursion. There are so many variables that determine gas mileage that results are not vehicle specifically documented because the conditions cannot be duplicated by each individual driver, so both of the manufacturers can only speak of generalities. The Superchips...

  • What Front Mount Hitch Will Fit 2005 Ford Excursion to Carry Agri-Cover SnowSport HD Snow Plow
  • For a front mount hitch for your 2005 Ford Excursion I recommend the Draw-Tite # 65022. Installation of the hitch requires the drilling of two holes that are 5/8-inch, however there is no welding required. This hitch bolts to the rear of your front bumper so for the installation you need to remove your tow hooks and fog lamps, and finally, you will need a torque wrench to secure the included hardware. The installation instructions are attached. I have attached a brief video showing...

  • Air Lift # AL25870 Compressor for Existing Firestone Air Spring Suspension on 2004 Ford Excursion
  • When factors such as ease of installation, ease of use and price are taken into account, the Air Lift WirelessONE # AL25870 Compressor system would be my recommendation. One of my co-workers has had this system installed on his Ford truck for well over a year now, and it has worked flawlessly. The fact that the compressor is controlled wirelessly removes much of the complexity from the installation, making this system an excellent choice. Air Lift tells me that this compressor can indeed...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack and Ski Adapter for 2005 Ford Excursion Allows Rear Doors to Open
  • Whether or not you can open the rear doors on your 2005 Ford Excursion depends on which bike rack you are using. If using a swing away style bike rack like the Vertex, # TH9031, then yes, you will be able to open the rear doors, even with the ski attachment, # TH9033, attached to the bike rack. However if it is the type of bike rack that folds down, you will not be able to fully open the rear doors. The swinging style bike rack is going to be the only option that will allow you to open...

  • Which Color Replacement LED Bulb for Turn Signals and Reverse Lights on 2003 Ford Excursion
  • For best visibility, you will want to use the bulb whose color is the same as the color of the lens. For your directional/ brake lamps, I would recommend the Putco # P283571R-P you mentioned. For the reverse lamps, use the white 3156, part # P283561W-P.

  • The K-Source Custom Extendable Towing Mirror # KS61068F that you referenced is confirmed to fit 2000-2005 Ford Excursions so it should fit your 2004 model easily. This is a manual mirror that will function correctly but will require manual adjustment. If you have electric mirrors with heat you would want K Source Custom Towing Mirrors # KS61095-96F instead.

  • Replacement Mounting Hardware Recommendation for a Thule Mountaineer Cargo Box
  • The Replacement EasySnap Mounting Hardware # 05704 that you referenced is designed to work on Thule Mountaineer ES cargo boxes so you would have no problem using it on your cargo box as long as it is a Mountaineer ES. If you have a non ES Mountaineer you will need to use the Thule Quick Mount QM3 # TH04997 that you also referenced. These boxes are designed to fit nearly all factory cross bars so it should work well for you.

  • Electric Drum Trailer Brakes for a 2004 Pace Trailer with Tandem 3500 Pound Axles
  • One way that you might be able to determine if you have self-adjusting or regular brakes. On self-adjusting brakes like # 23-468 as an example there is a cable that attaches one shoe to the other. You can see it in the picture on the product page. A manual adjust brake like # TRBK10E01 that you have referenced does not have this cable. If you want regular manually adjust 10 x 2-1/4 brakes you can use # TRBK10E01 for the left side and # TRBK10E02. For self-adjusting 10 x 2-1/4 brakes...

  • Trailer Side Mounting Bracket for Reese Friction Sway Control # RP26660
  • We do have a an additional mount that you can use to install the Reese friction sway control on another trailer. You will need # RP58062.The hardware is included so you will not need anything else for the trailer side other than the sway control unit itself # RP26660 when you want to tow the other trailer. One tip I can offer is that when you switch between the two trailers make sure that you adjust the sway control unit each time unless the trailers are identical in weight and size.

  • It sounds like you are experiencing trailer sway with your 2002 Ford Excursion when you are towing your car trailer. The best way to prevent sway is to have the trailer properly loaded.

  • How to Properly Snap the Bracket Covers on the Thule MOAB Cover
  • I think I know what is going on with your Thule M.O.A.B. Roof Top Cargo Carrier # TH690. I went out and talked to one of our installers and he said he had the same problem you are describing when he had the mounting points too close to the thicker bars that run from front to back on the cargo basket. If you space the mounting brackets a little farther away from those bars the problem you are experiencing should go away. If the mounting brackets are too close to those bars the lock covers...

  • Recommendation For Transmission Cooler on 2005 Ford Excursion 6.8L / V-10
  • I would strongly recommend to add an aftermarket transmission cooler to your 2005 Ford Excursion 6.8L vehicle to prevent any damage to your transmission. The ideal operating temperature range of your transmission fluid should be 160 to 200 degrees. Adding the cooler will not bypass the existing factory cooler which is located inside the radiator. Adding a cooler provides supplemental cooling to the your factory cooler. Transmission coolers are universal fit items. What you will need...

  • Roof Mount Cargo Basket Recommendations for a 2001 Ford Excursion with Factory Roof Rack
  • I did some research and found that the Thule MOAB, # TH690, is a direct fit to the factory installed crossbars on your 2001 Ford Excursion. The Yakima baskets are not listed as a fit and to determine if the Rola basket will fit there are some crossbar measurements you will need to take. If the cross bars are 3-1/4 inches or less wide and 1-1/4 inches or less tall then the mounting hardware on the Rola basket, # 59504, will fit. But, you also have to measure the center to center distance...

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control for a 2003 Ford Excursion and 7,500 Pound Trailer
  • When choosing a weight distribution system, you will want want that has a tongue weight capacity range that encompasses the tongue weight of the trailer when loaded and ready to tow. So first, take the 620 pounds. You then add the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the towing vehicle. This is the overall tongue weight you will need to go by. If you had a couple hundred pounds of gear behind the rear axle of the Excursion, that would put the tongue weight up to 820 pounds....
