On the dealer lot at Woltz & Wind Ford in Heidelberg, Pa - Doug & John thanks !
New unmodifided V8 Limited, black with tan leather interior, 3rd row seating, 4 WD, Moonroof, Towpackage, Remote Start and Reverse Sensing System.
Lowered on original wheels,it took about a day for me and a friend to install the Ground Force kit ( Part# 9926). Mostly with out problems although the rears took a little more care. The kit seems to be designed for the V6 as it is a little too low up front on the V8. I will be installing a 1 inch spacer to adjust the hight and getting new shock absorbers at the same time. Please note that alignment plates from i.e. Prosuspension.com are needed to properly align the wheels after this install. Update: Now a year later the front is way lower than before - I ended up with replacing the lowered springs with the original ones and new KYB shocks - Drives really well but is really high. It took a while but now the the suspension has settled although it doesn't look as racy now as when it was a lowrider. Latest: I have now sold the X and below is my newest toy a ML 500 Mercedes.
