    Agree (with the THINKS part especially)!

    Pardon my ignorance, though, but what makes the stock Expedition's 4WD system less superior to the more serious off-roaders' systems, like those on stock LCs, etc?

    IMm29, very good question, I'm about to ask the same question. Madalas kasi pag nag-uusap about offroad, Exped is not mentioned, all jap brands.

    Actually, Ok naman ang 4WD system ng Expedition. Borg-Warner pa ata ang may gawa nito (or some other famous transmission company). Gusto ko lang hampasin ng sapatos yung engineer who designed the 4X4 system controls to look like an a/c switch. :mrgreen: Ayoko kasi ng push button ek-ek. Gusto ko may lever sticking out of the floor. Mas masarap ang interface.

    Problema talaga ng Expedition ay sheer size. Tapos ang panget pa ng approach at departure angles and wala siyang underbody armor like Troopers, Pajeros and other mid-size SUV's.

    Parang aircon nga yung switch nung 4WD nung Expedition. IMO, ok lang para medyo matipid sa space. Ganun din naman ang effect kahit lever type yung shifter, diba?

    As to sheer size, parang ganyan din kalaki ang LC100? Yung mga approach and departure angles nga siguro, medyo problema.

    Hindi kasi 'positive' ang action kung electric switch lang, eh., Yung Pajero kapag naipasok mo ang lever sa 4WD alam mong 4WD siya. Kasi kung ayaw, lalaban yung shifter.

    Yung Expedition may chin spoiler at trailer hitch kaya kawawa talaga approach at departure. Yung Cruiser skidplates ang unang tatama so ok lang. Laking abala din yung side steps ng Expedition. Sa bagay, useful din naman unlike the ones that were formerly on my truck.

    Sa US maraming nagkakamali na A/C switch yung 4WD controls ng SUV nila. Pupunta sa casa sasabihin sira daw, yun pala nailagay nila sa 4L kaya ayaw tumakbo. hehehe.

    Ok, so kung 4WD lang ang pag-uusapan, fundamentally sound ang sa Exped. But other factors such as overall weight, approach and departure angles, and accessories do not work for its off-roadability.

    Sa mga ganyang problema, pre, me tawag na sa mga ganung tao! :lol: but, honestly, ilang beses ko na rin natamaan yung switch na yun. Langya, kala ko me sira oto ko, yun pala na-switch to 4H, tapos nag-bind.

    mbt,

    Hehehe. I bet so too. Pero ok ang Expedition if you're not going off the pavement. Malayong mas malaki ang cabin space kaysa LC100.mbt,

    IMHO you don't buy an Expedition anyway to go off-roading with it.

    But its a nice cruiser talaga, like going to Baguio loaded and in traffic, seamless talaga siya, no hassles or pain. The Exped is at home eating up the highway miles. I've taken ours to Bagiuo a couple of times and in Subic and Batangas for day-only trips, and hindi siya nakakapagod dalhin, and of course the power won't let you down overtaking a convoy of slow trucks on a two-lane road.

    Pero kalampagin din after a while. We had an LC VX-R 97 model from Dubai before getting our current Expd. THAT felt like a hiked-up hot hatch! But ride was a bit too stiff compared to the Exped in OE form.
