What are your recommendations for upgrades to improve mileage and what are the associated costs per configuration? I'm looking for a good long distance vehicle to haul a family of five and eventually a camper.
I run a 6.8 V-10 gas EX pulling a 41' 11K lbs travel trailer about 5k miles a year. With a few mods I am seeing consistent 8.5 to 9 MPG towing tank averages. The best place to be asking specific Excursion shopping questions would be over at Excursion - King of SUVs - Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums
