#2 The headlights really aren't cloudy. I guess it's because the Daytime lights were on it made them look yellow. :lol2:

Man, If I was not married, I would be swapping cars left and right too.

Your SHO is cool, I am sure you will only miss her for a short time.

I paid big $$$ for the Expedition because of the low miles and fully loaded. Around here even a high milage Expedition (97) goes for 16k. I paid cash for it so it is NOT going anywhere for awhile. It would be financially dumb to do that. PLUS...now I am super broke. :lol: It's a fine vehicle and I love it.

Sorry about the SE, but you have a SHO now. No need to bother with tiny little pushrod engines. You've got a (bigger) DOHC engine and a gigantic pushrod V-8. I'm assuming you have the 5.4L Triton, right?

Yeah it's the 5.4L Triton V8. I think that it's SOHC though. I'm not even sure. :lol2: I'll have to go look at the intake cover It says on there I believe.

You're right...5.4 Liter SOHC V8...http://popularmechanics.com/automotive/owners_reports/1997/1/or_ford_f150/print.phtml

I think that's still only a 2-valve per cylinder engine. The new Triton is SOHC with 3-valves per cylinder. That think hauls so much ass, it needs to make two trips. My parents had a 1999 Expedition, Eddie Bauer edition. That thing moved! It was every bit as fast as my Taurus. I used to love driving that thing. It's too bad she traded it for a 2004 V6 Mustang.
