    Good looking rig. Does is sag in the back after it was lowered and you are pulling the boat?

    Thank you sir! I havenít hooked up the boat yet but it shouldnít with the factory air ride/auto leveling suspension. I made some shorter air ride sensor links to prevent it from raising it back to the stock height after putting in the drop springs. Iíll likely have to make a few adjustments to the length of the links to get it perfect with the boat hooked up, but once itís right I wonít have to mess with it again.

    I knew those rigs had the auto system in them, that is one reason I asked.

    Sounds like you have it all worked out.

    No boat yet, about to pull the trigger. Knowing that, we picked this up in November. We go about 6 miles from our driveway to local lake/river...5.3L will do just fine. We made sure to get the HD trailering package.

    Need to tint front windows still...

    Now that the wife has to pull the boat occasionally back and forth to LBC we upgraded the 15 yukon.

    ^ Nice! How is she liking it? Our Navigator is getting tired and we’ve started weighing options.
    The years have been kind, it's the weekends that have done the damage.

    We were looking hard at a used 18 expedition max limited but ended up in the platinum esv. I was obviously sold on the EcoBoost for towing and could've gone either way. In the end the Cadillac won her over. We'll have to wait and see how it tows but it should be a nice upgrade over the shorter wheelbase 5.3 it replaced. I get tired of waiting for her up hills, I wish I could just hook the boat to the back of my fifth wheel!

    Beautiful Escalade. Can never go wrong with black!
    And how cool would it be to have a gooseneck wake boat trailer?!? The powerboat guys do it mainly out of necessity, but if it was an option I’d take it!

    Love it! We drove the Expedition and Navigator and preferred them in almost every way. But we had same thoughts about motor.
