I know it fits right in the rear trim panel. Hope someone can help. email me with the response. jetcam2optonline.net

I would also be interested in this so if anyone has this info, please post it here. Is adding a subwoofer something a mechanically inclined person could do at home? What all needs to be added to what's already in the XLT (eg. amp, woofer, panel, etc) to make this work?

jpt - if you are not starting out with the free sub like the previous poster, go the Crutchfield site or catalog, they sell a sub specifically for the storage area in the rear of the Expedition. If it is like all other Crutchfield stuff you buy, it will come with flawless, vehicle specific directions that are very clear and easy to follow. I have never been disatisfied with their stuff.
#5 of 126 Bug deflector recommendations
May 02, 2002 (5:46 pm)
I want to add a bug deflector to my Expedition, but I have a few questions. To those of you who have owned your Expy without one, did it help to install one, or was it a waste? I know vehicle aerodynamics play a part in the effectiveness, so do they work on Expeditions? If so, what brand fits well without drilling or rubbing the paint off of the hood or grille? I saw a Lund on one, and it rubbed the top of the grille. I prefer bugs to rust or worn paint, so I want to buy one that fits well and works, regardless of cost. Thanks for any input.

I have a factory one installed. Painted to match. Looks sharp. I would let the professionals do it if your not worried about cost. They have these things called Bump ons. The put them on your hood. So when you have wind force instead of the Bug guard hitting the hood it touches the bump ons. Saves the paint that way. Let me know if we can help any more.

I can do the installation and paintwork, but I prefer a brand that doesn't require drilling screw holes. Do you mean yours was dealer ordered and installed? Does it have a brand name on it? Also, do you find it prevents bug splatter on your windshield, or did you get yours mostly for paint protection?Thanks for your input.
#8 of 126 Performance Chips.
Aug 06, 2002 (1:59 pm)
Has anyone put one of these in their Expy's or Suv's?What did you pay? What type of increase in HP and tourqe did you get? Any other modifications that helped out. i'm looking at Superchip or Diablo chip. Please Help.
#9 of 126 Upgrading Expedition towing capabilities
Aug 30, 2002 (7:57 pm)
I have a 2000 Eddie Bauer Expedition 4x4 with the 5.4 L V8, 17 inch wheels, and the 3.55 axle ratio. I would like to increase the truck's towing capabilities. The Ford information I have indicates that having the 3.73 axle ratio can increase the capability by 400-500 lbs and having 16 inch tires can increase it by another 500 lbs. My question: Can the truck's axle ratio or wheel/tire size be modified like this aftermarket? Would it be a huge job that would put my truck at risk of problems? Would the speedometer have to be recalibrated? Would I need new tire rims? Would either job likely be prohibitively expensive? If it was possible to do either, who does this sort of work- a Ford mechanic at a dealership? a transmission guy? some specialty shop? Any help someone can give to these questions would be greatly appreciated?
