test towed with my new drop kit...

the Expedition did fine! i was really impressed with how it leveled off and didnt sag...

even with the 5.4, it feels like it could use a little steeper gear than the 3.32:1 it has in it, but maybe it was just me. the last 2 times i have towed has been with a diesel so maybe i am spoiled?

anyway, here are pics of how it sits with the tracker and trailer in tow.

How's the ride quality now that it's dropped? Is it bouncy?

To me it rides as good as my friends stock Ex. Tad more bouncy if you hit the right series of dips but on normal road conditions its as good as stock to me.

Nice toy indeed!

You could always opt for a good set of 3.73 posi gears! You might see an increase in mileage as well, especially around town and the transmission won't downshift as often either.
