That's pretty cool. What's the point of doing that though? Better ride? Or for offroading or racing or something?

Must've hacked that out of a newer Expedition. There's still a big chunk of frame attached in the first pics. Looks good! :thumbsup:
Someone once told me that the only reason Ford bought Jaguar was to get ownership of their IRS patents. Don't know if it's true, but they're definitely pushing IRS these days.

BTW, anyone notice this one? http://www.flynhi.com/FST/white_limo.htm

my sentiments exactly

For off roading, silly. What good are H1 and H2 limos? And Excursion/Expedition limos? If you held an off road race with them, the jacked up project would probably win :p

I honestly don't know, but I do know it's being built for someone in Mexico. Maybe their church is on an unpaved road :D

I'd say expedition too. One too many lugs for an Explorer. And the lower A-Arms are aluminumum:)p).

Just wondering if anyone had any more information on this truck? I know it's an ancient post, just fascinating especially considering Ford's announcement yesterday that the 2020 F150 will have optional IRS on some trim levels.

It was built for the 2004 SEMA Show for Ford by FST Motorsports. Unfortunately I never took any photos of the finished product :banghead:
