    Lol the truck is clean. Stupid clean. Carfax matched all records and services. I don't doubt for a second that the mileage is true. I did valve cover gaskets when i first got it and the motor was super clean. No sludge and doesn't use oil between changes. I do my homework before buying anything. Work on All my own stuff always.

    No the lights don't come on either way. Headlights are messed up too, one is on high beam all the time.

    almost any VIN translator, such as https://www.northamericanmotoring.com/forums/vindecoder.php?vin=2FTPX17ZX3CA03375 will run it for you. an actual police, etc., vehicle will come back as an SSV. Mine returns as:

    STYLE: 5.4L Special Service 4WD.
    TRIM: Special Service

    The vehicle more than likely had a headlight flasher (wig-wag) unit that was cut out. Some were spliced near the bulb plug, and others had a jumper plug from the flasher that plugged between factory wiring and the headlight bulb. Look for non factory wiring that was cut. Whelen and Federal Signal have online wiring diagrams for their headlight flashers that will show how to return to civilian service.

    My 06 was a former police expedition, other than oil changes their maintenance sucked.

    Engine's the same as a regular Expedition. The rear end should have the higher of the two available gear ratios. You may have a larger alternator and battery. Bigger radiator and trans cooler perhaps. Probably a column shifter too.

    Beware that a flaw in Ford's VIN system identifies many cars as SSV's which were not.

    Look for an 04 SSV brochure on-line and it will list the SSV package's exclusive features.

    That's interesting

    I never did figure out how to get back High Beams on my SSV, but never realized others have had the same problem

    For me engaging high beams kills all illumination instead
