    Default 2008 Lincoln Navigator L

    I finally brought it home yesterday.
    08 Navigator L, 4x4, power anything, 88k, tow package. Beautiful white.
    It was an awesome drive home, and I managed 18.6 mpg on the 370 mile trek home.
    This is the new family hauler.
    I want to get the WeatherTech floor mats for it. And then eventually get the cat-back exhaust, intake and tune.
    Not much else after that.

    My wife wants one. We went to a local Ford dealer and checked out an Expedition EL, too bad we can't afford it. Also too bad they don't come with a V8 anymore, not a big fan of the Ecoboost V6 in trucks, more comfortable with a V8.

    Yup. We ran out of room in the TC.
    We've been looking at these since February, and finally found one.
    I'd like to get 20"s for the summer, but eh, when i get there.
    Thanks mangs.

    The bright white makes the front end look a lot better. Dark colors make it seem like there's way too much chrome. Congrats.

    You say you want a cat-back for it, there was a guy at an apartment I used to live, he took the ugly resonator off and welded that in place of the muffler and then ran dual 4" tips out the back. It sounded awesome and he said it was cheap because he didn't have to buy a new muffler for it.

    Yeah it looks a little goofy with, what are those 18"s? Bet it rides like a fuckin dream though. Proper boat float.

    I'd like to put snow tires on the 18s, and buy a stock set of 20s or 22s for summer.
    And I'll pay the money for stainless steel exhaust. It's worth it.

    Should buy some stainless pipe and stainless mandrel bends and have a system made, the Magnaflow catbacks on Summit are over $700.

    The stock system ought to be stainless, and likely still under warranty for another 3 years.
