    08 Expedition

    The only thing I can think of is its better to snap an axle than the differential, it is a 6000 lbs vehicle. The threaded nut is very small and it might have been a just very random fail. I don't know just glad it's fixed and damage was contained to axle, 4x4 hub and wheel hub. One thing...

    08 Expedition

    Just the threaded end under the nut on the end of the axle. I'd never seen anything like before either but the amazing thing was it didn't fly apart on the road. I got stuck in 4" of packed snow last week with the front not helping. So after I got out we got under the truck and found the driver...

    So, what can I look at to improve in town MPG?

    My fuel mileage in my Expedition drops from 17 to 13.5 as soon as it gets cold and my driving is 70 percent hyway. If I stay at 55 it stays at 18 or 19 but the city driving kills the mileage. It takes fuel to accelerate 6300 lbs.

    Truck tire recommendations

    I've got the Goodyear Duratracks with 65k on them and there not done yet. They have been a great tire for my Expedition, I went up one size and got the more aggressive tread and i love them. The E lode rating was one reason for the tires as I pull a 30 ft camper with a 119" WB so I needed a...
