#77 of 126 17 vs 20 inch rims
Dec 24, 2005 (1:15 pm)
I have the 2006 Eddy Bauer Expedition and I want to upgrade my 17 inch rims to 20s. Trying to get the real scoop/pros and cons. I have heard that 20s heat up brake rotors, cause speedometer and odometer to be off, and you lose towing capacity. I see things on almost every expedition in town, can it really be that bad? I am making a big mistake? Please advise.

i was wondering if anyone Knew the answer to this, actually quite curious myself "I've heard that Explorers & F-series P-ups can be altered from A4wd to 2wd by 'cutting' an orange wire that runs under the drivers floor mat/carpet. If that's the case, can the same be done to a '99 expedition, effectivly accomplishing what newer models come standard with? Is the 'wire' in the same location? Are there computer/ electronic ramifications in doing so?"

I'm curious whether you noticed a change in horsepower and mileage, also how it sounds and what brand you went with and whether it was a "Cat back dual" system you purchased? I'm thinking about doing the same thing.

Did you ever receive a reply to this? I just purchased a 2005 Expedition with the rear DVD, and would like to purchase the navigation system as well.
#81 of 126 03 expedition cold air intake
Mar 29, 2006 (5:46 pm)
I recently purchased a cold air intake through ebay (big mistake) the instructions are very vague and tech support is non existent. there are a series of wires going to the air filter housing, but on the new cold air intake there is no hook up for these wires. the guy from "tech support" told me to leave them unplugged. Is this right? He couldn't tell me what they were for and I his lack of knowledge has raised some red flags. Is it o.k. to leave these wires loose? Please help! Thanks!
#82 of 126 99 Expedition Drivers door lock
Apr 20, 2006 (6:15 am)
I have a problem with my door lock; Everything seems to work fine except when exiting the truck, the door lock does not unlock, front passenger door does unlock on exit, but the drivers door doesn't. I am disabled, and am grateful that I have the door code memorized, or I may have been in trouble had I left my keys inside. I assume it has something disconnected it unlocks with the key, code and the unlock button, just doesn't work as expected when I exit the vehicle.
Also, I was wondering if I could install the temp/compass unit that goes near the rear view mirror if I can purchase one, are they all pre-wired?
#83 of 126 Sirius radio for new Expedition
Apr 23, 2006 (6:25 pm)
Just bought a new '06 EB Expedition 6 disc CD stereo system with SAT button/no nav. I thought I was good to go for listening to Sirius radio except the monthly fee. Didn't know I would still have to buy a tuner etc. Dealer wanted $550 and I thought that was way too much! Was I right? Where can I get what I need installed cheaper? I am a newbie to satellite radio so please be specific with any help (what I need and approx.cost). THANKS!
#84 of 126 Please Help my w/ my DVD installation !!!!!!!!!!
May 16, 2006 (4:56 am)
Please Help my w/ my DVD installation !!!!!!!!!!I have a 2003 Expedition w/ the sunroof and rear ceiling AC. I bought the vehicle with a rear ceiling DVD taken out. So, I purchased a factory DVD and found that the one prior was an aftermarket rigged up to plywood above the headliner. Since the factory model is heavier, it won't hold up to plywood. Besides, the rough dirt road that I live on will cause it to fall out. I need to know how to install this. I read about a support bar but no direction to find one. Also I need to know what wire harness is needed or is there a direct bolt in behind the headliner. I really would appreciate some insight since the dealers won't talk unless you have cash. Thanks for your time.

A single 40 series Flowmaster with dual turndowns has had my truck turning heads when I drive by. I plan on cutting my cats before to long, even though my check engine light my stay on until I get some O2 sensor simulators.
#86 of 126 IPOD Adaptor
Jun 16, 2006 (5:49 pm)
I have a 2005 Eddie Bauer Exp w/Nav Radio, 6-disc changer and rear DVD entertainment system. Does anyone know of an adaptor that wires into the factory radio for my Ipod Nano? Id be willing to get rid of the cd changer to do it so is there an adptor that can wire directly in to that slot?
