Here we go again Build #2 2011 or newer 6.7l Diesel Build Thread. Let's start this off with pics of the Excursion we bought for the Build. It is a 2005 Ex V10 Limited with 210,000 miles. It has captain chairs in the second row and a DVD player. This Ex never pulled a trailer in it's life time. It was used for limousine service. Hit in front and drivers side.

Progress so far. Truck up on the frame rack so we can straighten the quarter. Gutted the interior and have all the wiring pulled out, striped and labeled for the conversion.

Got the frame cut on The EX today. Rolled the front half off with the motor and trans still in the frame. Rolled the back axle off and outside to. Put the 2012 on the frame rack and gutted the interior. Monday call for the windshield to be cut out and started taking everything off the underside off the truck.
