Destination Expedition: Hulst Customs’ ultimate family adventurer

The Hulst Customs 2018 Destination Expedition is based on a 2018 Ford Expedition with a EcoBoost V6 and 10-speed automatic transmission. The engine is augmented with a custom Borla exhaust system connected to “custom-fabricated tips.”

Rolling on 26 x 10 inch Lexani LF-002 forged wheels and 305/30-26 Lexani tires,  the Hulst Customs 2018 Destination Expedition has a snowboard rack (Yakima FatCat). Oddly enough, it has obviously been lowered, so snow could be problematic. The same goes for the tires. Still, it looks like fun to drive.

LGE*CTS Expedition Classic 

The LGE*CTS Expedition Classic began life as a 2018 Ford Expedition before receiving a Borla cat-back exhaust system and Borla custom exhaust tips. It looks off-road-ready with a ReadyLIFT leveling suspension, Hellwig Products front and rear sway bars and vintage-looking 18 x 8 inch Wheel Vintiques steel wheels wrapped in 285/70-18 BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 tires.

Designed and built by Theresa Contreras, the Expedition is tastefully upgraded with outdoor accessories like the Ford Licensed Accessories custom-painted Yakima Off-Grid large roof basket w/extension, LGE Baja Forged front bumper and Rigid Industries 20-inch Radiance light bar – among many others.

We are looking forward to seeing these Expeditions soon!
