Thanks for checking out Aspen’s for sale ad! First things first, we do not need or want your negative opinion or appraisal of what our truck is worth. Please take any negative slams and comments somewhere else. Now for the other 99% of you awesome folks out there here it goes. :)

Ask your wife or your partner if you can buy this before you contact us with questions please. And if you want help or want to discuss your own build I can help consult for regular consultation fees.

The time has come to sell our one of a kind Unicorn overland truck. As far as we know the only one with this level of build in the whole wide world.

For 2019 we are going to focus our travels and adventures in our 1994 LMTV M1079 “Brutus” so Aspen our 2007 Ford Expedition will just be sitting while we are away. So we have decided to let someone else enjoy Aspen.

Aspen has proven himself on so many levels. Let’s face it, we were charging uncharted waters when we decided to build him, no one really has built an Expedition for extended comfortable travel so we were on our own. And we were not 100% certain it would even be a good choice. Well, that was worry that quickly fled. Silly side point, it does say “Expedition” on the door, we should have know it would turn out golden.

Aspen has 300HP and 365 TQ, payload capacity of 1895 pounds, (that’s more than a Toyota Tundra, to put it into perspective) and a 9000 pound towing capacity. The selectable 4 wheel drive with front and rear independent ICON Vehicle Dynamics 2.5 CDC valve one off custom suspension is a dream, very comfortable off and on road. We do not even air down all that much as it rides so good off road even on long corrugated dirt roads. Aspen has less interior cabin road noise than our GX470 Lexus, more power than our Lexus, tons more room, cheaper to insure and license, less expensive parts when needed, overall more comfortable to drive, the supportive scheel-mann seats are killer and the turning radius is the sharpest of any vehicle we have ever owned including our FZJ80 or GX470.

The truck drives great on the HWY and off road, we even took it on part of the Rubicon Trail and it surprised us with its competence.

This truck has zero rust, it has lived in the southwest its entire life.

Check out our “Adventure Driven” YouTube channel for more details and info.

Clear title comes with AZ bill of sale, No trades, cash only, not parting out so please don’t ask. Truck is located in Flagstaff AZ and can deliver personally anywhere, you pay our travel expenses.

I have personally maintained this truck meticulously in every way, only used Ford parts when available and we chose the best companies to work with to create the build. Here is a list of features and items included with the truck as priced.

VIN # 1fmfu16547LA68930


Build list:

1. CBI Off Road front and rear bumpers, full skid plates and sliders; all custom one-off parts not available for purchase from CBI. We worked very close with the design and features we wanted and they totally knocked it out of the park, attention to detail is a solid A Plus. Rear bumper is a two piece swing out with drop down table for food prep, rear aluminum box for storage and a separate attached kitchen cutlery and spices space on the inside, all box’s have drop down doors. There are 2 light posts with KC cyclone LED’s on a switch. This set up makes cooking a breeze and is well thought out in terms of space and easy to use. $15,000.00

2. ICON Vehicle Dynamics suspension custom one off parts not available for purchase, consisting of : (4) 2.5 CDC valve custom sprung coil overs with front upper control arms. This has changed the truck to amaizing in every way, small bump compliance is outstanding, we rarely air down when off-road, swallows chop and stutter bumps like it is not even there, handles fantastic on the HWY as well. $8000.00

3. Scheel-Mann USA front seats on custom seat brackets so they are 100% bolt in. Lets face it the stock Ford seats were absolutely awful, after much research we called Toby at Scheel-Mann USA and ended up with a set of orthopedic Traveler LR Edition seats that are absolutely perfect, we spend long days in them and still feel fresh, they feel great, supportive in all the right spots. After a 12 hour drive day we are not sore at all, one of our favorite mods we have made to Aspen. $4600.00

4. KC HiLites, turn night into day!!!!! 3 Carbon Pods on front bumper, Flex 50 inch above windshield, 2 LZR 4 inch LED ditch lights in front bumper, 3 LZR cube reverse lights automatically activated, 6 C2 area lights on roof rack for around camp, and 2 flood Cyclone lights on rear bumper poles for cooking etc. $3998.00
