The Expeditions are cheap because the 2003 up 3 valve 5.4 is a complete peice of garbage.

We bought a 2009 4x4 Expedition knowing this at the auction for $1500. They may be garbage but $1500 for a 4x4 2009 just couldn't be beat. Around here a 2005 Silverado 4x4 will bring $6000 all day (if not $10,000 for a clean one) while the same year Suburban will struggle to bring $4000.

Good news:

My wife now thinks a shorter 3000 lb trailer would work for her business, so my Jeep can tow that. That saves on buying an extra vehicle!

That's definitely the most economical way: what you already have.
