2003 Ford Expedition Questions and Answers


  • Mileage Gains with Superchips Flashpaq Performance Tuner # SU1842 in 2003 Ford Expedition 5.4
  • Mileage gains from using a performance tuner like the Superchips Flashpaq # SU1842 in your 2003 Ford Expedition with 5.4-liter engine can range from 10-15% according to my contact at Superchips. This is a best-case scenario. Do please note that there are a number of factors affecting fuel economy, from the condition and type of tires to the overall condition of the engine, so Superchips cannot guarantee these specific results. My technical contact there advised that many customers have...

  • Would the SportRack Aero XL Cargo Box, # A90275 fit a 2003 Ford Expedition
  • The SportRack Aero XL Cargo Box, # A90275, requires a minimum crossbar spread of 24 inches and will fit on crossbars with a diameter up to 4 inches. If the factory rack of your 2003 Ford Expedition fits those dimensions then yes, this box would work well for you. If you do not have a roof rack with crossbars you would need that first. If you have raised rails you would want the Rhino Rack Roof rack part # RRVA118B-2 and part # RRSX001. If you have flush mounted rails you would...

  • Will Yates 5 Inch Wobble Roller Fit a 1991 EZ Loader Boat Trailer
  • Most of the boat trailer rollers that we carry, including # YR530R-8P, are not trailer specific. You would go by the measurements of the roller. This wobble roller has a 5 inch diameter and is 3 inches wide. It takes a 1 inch diameter shaft. Bushing length is 1-1/2 inches. I have linked a video review of the roller for you. Roller # YR500YW-8PEZ has the same dimensions as above with a 1-1/8 inches bushing length and is indicated as a fit for EZ Loader trailers.

  • 5-Bike Towing Rack Recommendation for Use on 2003 Explorer and 2000 Chevrolet K1500 Pickup
  • We do offer specialty towing bike racks for use with 2-inch hitches that allow you to transport bikes while you tow a trailer. These racks mount on the shank of your ball mount. The link provided will let you see three such racks. Unfortunately, towing racks like these offer a maximum carrying capacity of 4 bikes. There are also hitch adapters like the MaxxTow Dual Hitch Extender # MT70070 that fits a 2-inch hitch and provides dual 2-inch receiver openings, the lower one for towing and...

  • Will the Swagman Roof Mount Bike Rack Fit Curved Crossbars on a 2003 Ford Expedition
  • As long as the crossbars on your 2003 Ford Expedition are less than 3-1/8 inches wide and 1-7/8 inches tall then the Swagman roof mount bike rack # S64720 will fit, despite the curve in the bars. You would want the bike rack as much in the middle as you can get it though if you want it to ride straight and not lean over. To help reach the center of the roof rack I also recommend using a wheel step such as # TH2100.

  • Are the Rubber Adjusters # PW99 Needed for 265/70R17 Tires on a 2003 Ford Expedition
  • I do recommend using the Glacier Rubber Adjusters, # PW99, with the Glacier Tire Chains, # PWH2828SC, with size 265/70R17 tires. We tested these tire chains on that tire size and determined the cam tighteners did not provide enough tension by themselves. I found an owners manual for your 2003 Ford Expedition and it says Ford only recommends using cable style chains or Ford accessory tire chains on your Expedition. For cable style snow chains, I recommend going with the Titan Cable Chains,...

  • Fastway Weight Distribution-Amount of Washers, How to Remove Spring Bars and Torque Figure Question
  • I spoke to my contact at Fastway and he informed me that on a shorter wheelbase vehicle like your 2003 Ford Expedition a good starting point would be 5-6 washers, but the reason they do not list a recommended amount in the instructions is because the amount of washers required varies based on the application. The easiest way to get the spring bars off is to use the trailer jack to raise the coupler when connected to a trailer so that the spring bar tension is relieved and can easily...

  • Determining the Correct Weight Distribution System for a 2003 Expedition Towing a 6180 lb Trailer
  • The important factor to consider when choosing a weight distribution system is the fully loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of the trailer. You must also consider the weight of any cargo that will be loaded in the rear of the tow vehicle behind the rear axle. This cargo will also contribute to the total tongue weight of the weight distribution system. You will want to choose a weight distribution system with a tongue weight range that encompasses the fully loaded and ready to tow tongue...

  • How Much of the Tires is Covered When Using EGR Fender Flares, Part # 753044, on 2003 Expedition
  • The EGR Custom Molded Fender Flares, part # 753044, fit a number of Ford pickup trucks but are not intended for use on the 2003 Ford Expedition. The closest item we have that is compatible with your Expedition is the Putco Fender Trim Kit for the 2003 Ford Expedition, part # P97209, which is a stainless steel trim kit for all four fenders. It comes complete with all required stainless steel hardware and installs without any drilling. This item is protected by a Lifetime Warranty from...

  • Recommendation For An Adapter That Will Allow a 2003 Ford Expedition to Tow a Car Trailer Level
  • The Roadmaster High-Low Hitch Adapter, part # RM-048-6, is rated to be used with tow bars for flat towing behind a motor home and not for weight carrying applications or trailer towing. The use of any adapter, including this one, will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. Since tow bars and flat towing physically function differently than towing a trailer or carrying a bike rack, the Roadmaster High-Low was not designed for towing a trailer. It sounds like...

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control For 2008 Ford Expedition Towing a 25 Foot Enclosed Car Hauler
  • I would first recommend to check the GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) on your 25 foot enclosed car trailer. It should be much higher than the 3,000-lb rating you mentioned. Most 25 foot enclosed car trailers should have at least a 6,000-lb GVWR or higher. Many times adjusting the way that the trailer is loaded can help minimize trailer sway. You will also want to make sure that your trailer is as close to level as possible. When choosing a weight distribution system and sway control...

  • Is the Rola Roof Mount Cargo Basket Extension Recommended with the Basket on a 2003 Ford Expedition
  • To determine if the Rola basket, # 59504, is sufficient by itself, or if the extension will be needed, # 59505, you have to take a look at the overall dimensions of each and what your needs are to decide. The basket by itself measures 52 inches front to back, 40-1/2 inches side to side, and it is 6 inches tall. On many vehicles this is more than enough basket for most jobs. If you add the extension you will be looking at a length of 70-3/4 inches, that is nearly 6 feet long (5.89...

  • Is Weight Distribution Needed for 2003 Ford Expedition Towing a 2008 Aerolite Cub 5,000-Lb Trailer
  • A weight distribution system is a good idea any time you are towing a trailer that is at least 50 percent of the tow vehicle weight, if you are experiencing rear end sag on the tow vehicle, or if you experience trailer sway. I think that with your 24.4 foot trailer with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 5,000 lbs being towed with your 2003 Ford Expedition, you would benefit from a weight distribution system. To choose a weight distribution system you will need a system that has...

  • What is the Overall Length of the Americana Metal, Bolt-In Valve Stem # AM20906
  • The valve stem of this Americana Metal, Bolt-In Valve Stem # AM20906 that you referenced is 1-1/4 inches long in overall length. I attached an FAQ on trailer tires for you to check out also.

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for 2011 Toyota Tundra Towing Horse Trailer
  • A brake controller is not vehicle specific, so you have many different choices of brake controllers that could be used for pulling a horse trailer with your 2011 Tundra. This being said, you cannot go wrong with the Prodigy P2. The controller is simple to install on a vehicle equipped with the factory tow package and very easy to set up which makes the P2 our best selling brake controller. If your Tundra came with the factory pigtail, it would wire up to the pigtail included with the...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Connector on 2003 Ford Expedition
  • If you have tested the pin for the right turn signal at the trailer connector, have you used a circuit tester to probe the wire that feeds the connector? If you get no signal there, you most likely have a blown fuse. Typically, the fuses that protect the towing circuits are located in a fuse box in the engine compartment. Your owners manual should have more specific information about the fuse location.

  • Mounting Hole Dimensions for the 4-Pole Flat Mounting Bracket # 18144
  • The mounting holes in the 4-Pole Flat Mounting Bracket, item # 18144, are 1-3/4 inches apart. The bracket is 2-1/4 inches wide overall and comes with two self tapping screws and two Phillips head stove bolts and nuts. A No-Drill Mount Bracket, Long # 18136 or Short # 18140, is available to attach the 4-Pole Flat Mounting Bracket to the trailer hitch and eliminate the need to drill.

  • Recommended Brake Controller for Tri-Axle Trailer Towed by 2003 Ford Expedition
  • I would recommend a proportional controller. A proportional controller uses an internal sensor that determines how quickly and at what intensity the tow vehicle is braking. It will then send the appropriate amount of voltage to the trailer brakes so that the tow vehicle and trailer stop at the same rate. This saves a great amount of wear and tear on the braking systems of the vehicle and trailer. The Tekonsha Prodigy, part # 90185 is rated for trailers with 3 axles. It is very easy...

  • Items Needed to Install Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller, Part # 39510 on 2003 Ford Expedition
  • In addition to the brake controller, you will also need the wiring adapter, part # 20260. This adapter will wire to the controller wiring color for color and then plug into the connector under the dash. The connector is located under the dash to the right of the steering column, near the diagnostic port. The Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller does feature a sliding manual override switch, located under the front of the unit.
