Up for grabs is a truly exceptional 1997 Ford Expedition that's not just an off-road beast but also a smooth operator on the road. It's time to let someone else experience the thrill of this amazing off-road toy, as I'm transitioning to a pickup truck for my evolving needs and hobbies. Willing to trade for a full size crew cab 4x4 pickup of similar value. Runs excellent and drives around town and down the highway good. I have taken this on 8 hour road trips and it’s easy and comfortable to drive. This could be your new off road party wagon! Located in Bend, OR - $15900. Best to call/text me at 805-415-4879 but I will try to check in here also.

Apparently Racer Off Road in Phoenix built it originally from an old post on race dezert forums.
 
I have seen this in ocotillo years ago, I forget the old owners name but he offroaded/ran around Pahl or paul with the black Explorer he was on DR back in the day. Super cool expedition though, I wish I had bought it last time it was for sale.

Pahl here...Damien Martin was the guy who owned it and yeah we mobbed it in Ocotillo a lot. It's an amazing truck.

Fun connection to this owner: Lucas I am Chris Nebel's friend and I'm pretty sure we met at his place in Chico ages ago. GLWS. This SUV is bad ass!!! Everything on it was nicer than my Explorer...I was jealous.

Hey Pahl! Yeah Chris texted me about being friends Damien. Small world! I also tagged along with Chris to a couple of Pismo trips and rode in your XJ and then your Explorer. I tell many people about the time this crazy guy took me for a ride in his XJ and kept driving into the ocean (and then flopped it on its side). And then on the trip when you had your Explorer, Elliot sent the mouse into a witch's eye and broke some stuff. Memorable trips that made me want a long travel something and now that I have it I realized I don't have money for all of the hobbies.

oh shit didn't realize you were on that trip of the lawn dart 🤡🤡
 
Elliot I'll never forget your greatest us of "zero fucks were given" during that night.

Lucas I didn't connect your name...you are the Viking! Chris just said "my buddy bought Damien's old truck and you've met him before". I love this small community!

ha! That's right, I almost mentioned that you called me Viking since I'm pretty sure you used that more than my name.
