#109 of 126 2007 Air Suspension Option
Feb 16, 2007 (7:30 pm)
Looking at getting a 2007 Expedition. Tried the EL today - in our driveway overnight. Nice vehicle but just too big for our purposes. Trading out for a std. Expedition tester tomorrow. If I pull the trigger it will be for a std. Expedition and we don't tow. I have been told the only purpose of this air suspension is if you tow. Please let me know your feelings. I am still going to go for the optional tow package as it will be good for resale and I like the idea of tranny cooling and the larger radiator.

The air suspension also lowers the truck when its parked for easier egress.
#111 of 126 Expedition EL with Front Bench Seat?
Sep 08, 2007 (5:12 am)
Has anyone seen an Expedition EL with a front bench seat? I am interested in the 9-passenger version of the EL with the front bench seat, but cannot find any pictures, brochures, etc. from Ford or anyone else. My main question is whether the middle seat has a shoulder seat belt.

No new retail Expeditions or Expedition ELs are available with a front bench seat cause that is where the shifter is.
And you can forget about buying the police package.
#113 of 126 Front Bench Seat Availability
Jan 18, 2008 (10:55 pm)
Mark, your comment is not accurate. The split bench seat is standard on 2008 XLT models and it comes with a column shift. However, it's pretty much a custom order, as nearly all dealer orders come are configured with front bucket seats. (With the 2007 model, it was the reverse: buckets standard, and split bench was a late-availability option). The front split bench seats are available only on the XLT model (excluding fleet orders).
As for pictures, Seamus8, I've looked everywhere and have not found any anywhere. I'm ordering an XLT with the front bench seat (I'm a big/tall guy and the center console with the bucket seats bothers my right leg), so I'll post pictures when I get a chance.

Well you must be reading a different order guide then the one I just downloaded from the Ford dealer only website dated 1/3/2008 which states that the split bench with column shifter is optional. Look for trim codes ML, MC, or MW.

It's interesting that there's been no answer to this technical question- unless I've missed it. (Re ability to modify '99 Expedition from 4AWD to 2WD via a single wire alteration which is apparently possible on some Explorers & F-Series Pickups). If someone knows, I would sure be interested. This query was initially posted as message #73.
#116 of 126 Need Advice 2007 Expedition DRL
Nov 27, 2008 (1:35 pm)
Hi All, I just bought a 2007 Expedition XLT without Daytime Running Lights, however I would like to have them. I read an article found on a Google search by a gentleman who found his 2000 F150 was manufactured with all the wiring necessary for DRLs and gave information as how to remove a jumper and plug in the DRL module This is for a 1999 and newer F150. Might there be a similar fix for my 2007 Expedition?? My local ford dealer told me the after market DRL kit was no longer available from Ford.
