That maroon Excursion almost blinded me with all that chrome and Armor-all! Shine Matt's lights on that truck and you've got a supernova!

BTW, It looks like he's running on -5 psi in those tires!

Oh, I did see an Excursion limo the other day here in Austin. It only had 2 axles, but it had four windows between the doors and one cargo area window. It was lowered, too. The driver sure had his hands full. My Sport can barely keep in the small lanes here, let alone that thing!

Okay, back to reality. I sure wish I owned that (and had that much money to spend). It would be sweet to drive around town. Just have to be careful not to squish them Hondas like a tin can.

Thumbs down

I guess I'm the only one that thinks that maroon one looks gaudy. It looks to "after thought" to me.

I don't know. I like when the truck looks like it was meant to be that way.

I appreciate the work and money that goes into that truck but I think it looks like a sore thumb.

True, but it looks like he's already got his own PIAA's on there... looks like he's got some 910's mounted under the winch.

I really like the green one in the bottom pic. Not too much, not too little, just right.

I think the limos are way too excessive. The trucks in the shows, I would not do it. Too much work involved. Who wants to clean the rubber between the tires, I mean, really! Oops, I got a scratch on my 38" Ground Hawg, gotta go buy a new one...... come one! I know, to each their own, but.... just not me.

PS He does need to put some air in that left rear tire.( maroon Exp.)

It's probably just for looks, and you figure probably all the parts were sponsored items, etc. If I didn't have a lifted vehicle myself with fairly large tires, I'd say "whats he overcompensating for?" LOL

I like the look of the maroon Truck. But I Have Seen the The 4x4's like that around town and I know the guy bought the truck drove it to a told them to Lift it and make it look really sweet but still does not know what is really in the truck he just knows what it looks like. It is Just to show how much money he has...

Me on the other hand I have done most of the work on my truck my self.

nope....both are photos I took at a recent 4x4 event in town that I was showing my truck in. Sorry for the poor photos but all I've got is a pos reg camera. Maybe my next mod needs to be a new camera.....na. However if you check out the post "Desert Excursion" or "Pre-Sema" there are more photos in both

Cool

My sister had recently gotten married. she rented some carzy limos... 6pass lincoln bridal car, 12 pass town car, 18 pass town car, and a 22 passenger Navigator. Hey, its a big family on both sides whadda yah want? anyway, i chose to ride in the Navigator, i mean who wouldnt, it was a block long and turned heads everywhere) let me just tell you that the car rode like a big heavy hunk of ISH!! Just awful, almost on the edged of scary. but in a car like that its not your typo family luxo car, its for novelty purposes, more like a "hey look at me in this huge limo!! im important look! look!"
