To be honest, if Honda would have stretched the wheelbase, lifted it a little bit (from the factory), I would probably have one. It'd be a modern day Eurovan/Synchro. Suicide doors or sliding door, either would have worked for me.
So I've got no problems with the new 110. I'd like to get one...
If they are trying to compete with Wranglers, makes sense they based it on the Ranger platform, like Bronco II. It will be nice to have another option for a 4x4 with a drop top.
For the record, I like the new 110's. Steel wheels, either Exp or Adv pack. Get some tires on it and it's ready...
SUV's in general drop quite a bit, especially compared to their truck counterparts. (Look at the Tacoma, Tundra, F150, etc).
Comparing strictly Ford to Toyota SUV's, I can't really tell much difference. Maybe LC's have a slight advantage, but considering they are $80k vehicles (with not...
LC will be smaller. Much better suited for off-road ventures with vastly better aftermarket support.
Expedition won’t be as robust off road as the LC’s, but still can go on plenty of “High clearance 4x4” roads. Family trips will be more comfortable. Better power for towing.
So depends on...
Get the wheel liner and be done with it. Trying to save $50 on a $70k truck is silly.
The 6.2 will serve you just fine. It’s been tested and proven. No towing, 3k in the bed. Zero issues with the 6.2.
But...if I were buying, I’d go with the 7.3 no doubt, along with the Tremor package. Done.
In my experience, 100’s have just as many issues. Early ones had front diff implosions. LBJ. Transmission (planetary gears), exhaust manifold. Pretty craptastic mpg, mediocre power (mine would struggle towing a 3k trailer), and others I’m not thinking of.
Either would be fine as long as the...
What’s considered “mild off-roading”?
Hard to go wrong with either a Suburban or Expedition. I have fond memories of road trips and outings in a ‘88 Suburban so I’m biased towards them. But as long as it’s 4x4 with 4lo, you should be good.
I’ve seen those power steps fail and often. Can’t tell you how many times I’ve see trucks and suv’s rolling down the road with one side down and other side up. Neighbor’s Platinum steps gave out last year. After 2 years of service. I’ll stick to regular stock steps. And if I’m worried about rock...
7.3 in a F350 if you’re pulling a 5th wheel often.
Forget the back up alarm. Your exhaust note will be loud enough. Just use the back up cam and you’ll be fine.
Running boards are aluminum. Won’t rust. And keeps the mud, rocks, snow off the rockers.
