Oof. Well done. Normally hate fender flares, but that looks amazing.

Middle row looks like modern f150 buckets and the third row is the old excursion fold and tumble seat. All covered in matching black platinum hides (truck was a platinum edition). Rear door cards. So they take a 250/350 crew cab Swb and cut the cab behind the front doors. Graft on the excursion rear end, including doors. Crew cab rear doors are smaller than the excursion rear doors. The modify the new trucks door cards to fit the larger excursion doors. All really well done, you’d think it was factory built.

awesome setup. do people ever get confused by the new style Excursion or are most people oblivious? Funny, the X26 makes it look small

Gmc and chevy should be offering a diesel option for 2021 and may meet your needs but if you looking at an x24 unless you can find a paradise rating of 9500 or more for an suv it would be best to get a pre owned 19 or 20 3/4 ton. Remember gas versions only get about 10 mpgs

Towing my 2016 X26 with a 2019 RAM 1500 Limited. I tow every weekend and I've never had a problem. I did a towing test back-back with an F-150 and the RAM was hands down a better tow experience, and the tow capacity works.

Would I be better off with a 3/4 ton? Of course, and I waffled for 2 months before I bought the 1500. But the truck is my daily driver and I wanted a vehicle i was comfortable in the 95% of the time I wasn't towing.

I should also add, I'm never in a hurry when I'm towing.. plenty of following distance and usually never much over 65 mph... and we try to plan our departure to/from the cabin to limit traffic. I absolutely love my truck.
