I do like the Liberty. It is like a sports car compared to the Excursion in the city. And during the rediculous amount of rain recently I liked being able to put the Jeep in full-time 4x4 and going on, albeit more slowly. I don't like the way water stays on the outer edge of the drivers side of the windshield during heavy rain though.

The excursion Is part time 4x4. And it is complex enough to keep my busy fixing it. The AC quit working, couldn't even get it to come on. Then I Found out if that happens and it's not a fuse I had to cycle the Headlight switch 3 times in a row to make it come back on. What kind of quirk is that? And it will cost me at least 3-4k in parts and then labor(if I cant do it all) to make it anywhere near reliable (head gaskets/ studs/Bulletproof EGR repair/oil cooler/ gauges and I still need to replace the shocks/springs and ball joints).
That is part of why I haven't been able to make up my mind.

I dont know what that jeep is rated for pullin but you mentioned getting a camper. Campers arent particularly light to pull. I would go with the Ex just because it is awesome and you can haul stuff. If size is a factor you can always do the 2 ex conversion haha. It looks awesome.

this is the guy who does a lot of different conversions. I really like the 2 door ex but Im a big bronco fan

Think about wich one you would rather be in a crash in. Sure nobody want's to be in a crash but **** happens and sometimes you have no control over it.

Default Cummins in ford

Pull the bullshit 6.0l and put a 5.9l cummins in the ex. I'd did it with mine and get 20-25 highway with mine. Granted, mine has the bully dog tuner and four inch exhaust, but if you sold the jeep and did that, it would save you money in the long run.
