    Not surprising. The Ford Expedition is basically a F-150 with a covered bed and a extra seat.

    I have a 2013 F-150 Supercrew. Great on room. One complaint I do have is with the jack and tire iron location. To get it, the seats have to be raised up, loosen the two nuts on the passenger side rear, lift out the tray under the driver's side rear seat, pull the case from inside the hideyhole, flip 90 degrees, and lift out. If it's broad daylight, you aren't in a hurry, etc. no big deal. But throw in things like a loaded cab, dark night, bad weather, or in a hurry, and it starts to go down hill. I had to look in the owner's manual to find the thing to begin with. And the case packaging is another deal. The first time, it took me a little while to work out the jig saw puzzle to get it to close to put it back. Ford isn't the only one guilty of this. Ram hides theirs under the front passenger seat.

    That's right. Most people tend to get flat tires when it's not convenient for them, which stinks when finding the jack could be described as a magic trick or miracle.

    If I had a truck I'd carry a floor jack or a hi-lift jack with me at all times. The scissor jacks most cars come with are junk to begin with and are a pain to remove or replace.

    There's another 30 pounds to carry around to weigh on your gas mileage just for the occasional use. Not as bad as my friend who carried a spare engine around in the bed of his Toyota though....
  • 30 lbs is inconsequential when the vehicle weighs 5,000lbs. Its worth the 'sacrifice.'

    Not worth the sacrifice of having a floor jack or high-lift(!) taking up space in the cab and rattling around... At least not to me.

    I'd keep it in the bed, inside a toolbox most likely, if it were me.
    It would have to be an under the rail box though! :D
