White Buffalo EB 4wd & 5.4L
By Bob Mack on
1998 Ford Expedition XLT 4dr SUV
60,000 miles,very few problems. Bought
it new. Brakes went at 40K, front
differential seal at 50K. The Goodyear
Wrangler RTS worn out at 55K. 17"
Bridgestone Revo tires made a vast
improvemnt in handling & ride. 4wd
works like a dream; rode through 60
miles of TX South Padre Island beach
sand like it was a throughway.
As prevously stated,the air suspension
componets (pump & frt shocks) wear out
quickly and are expensive, but help to
reduce excessive ride height. We hope
to keep this one for 8-10 years. At 60
mph we can nurse 16mpg, but my wive's
heavy digital driving style, around
town we see just 11 MPG. Paint &
leather is holding up well.
Buffalo effortlessly charges across the
praire. Ought to be good for 200K. Love
those 17" tires. Very clean engine
Motor makes plenty of torque but makes
much noise doing it. Smooth out the
motor. Depreciatesquite rapidally, so
buy used or drive 200K.
