Everything went good. Smoother ride than previous ranger but definitely noisy. Hope they find a fix for that. I added a moving blanket over the back and no difference. The radio works great just cant use it when going at 20-30 mph and above. The seats are comfortable, was concerned about them setting low but after a few miles liked it. Have back and hip issues and after 4 hours riding was fine. Went about 100 miles and used 1/2 tank fuel. Liked better than the ranger. AC works great. Originally thought that with all the windows would be hard to cool but wasn’t so. Did come across a bear on the ride.

Does a review and not a single pic of the new ride. Why?

Where were you riding?
 
First ride yesterday! First off I love my Xpedition! It was awesome to ride with the comfort of the air conditioning. I did drop the air pressure in the tires to help more with the ride and also I was going across some big rocks. Rode 75 miles and it said I had 29 percent of fuel left, so I figured around 100 miles on a tank at this point. Maybe it will get better after the break in.

That's a healthy-looking bear! I bet you felt a bit better knowing you had a cab around you just in case...

Do you remember what pressure you aired down to? I think I remember 15-18 psi being a target for these tires?
 
15psi in the rear tires and 13 psi in the rear tires. From the factory they where 27 & 23.
PSA for those with a new Xpeidition to check your tire pressures. Actually, this goes for any new vehicle that you get. This is a PDI (Pre-Delivery Inespection) item that gets missed a lot of times. Manufacturers will over-inflate the tires to help set the bead of the tire on the wheel and they often never get lowered back down to the correct PSI before delivery.
