Lincoln as Toad
I think you were wise to do it yourself. Like others I agree you are a brave guy to take a 5 day old car apart to tow capability. However you are also wise to do it yourself rather than having an RV dealer do it. At least the RV dealers that the members of this list regularly complain about. I was a Ford Fanatic for a while in the early 1970s, went back to them for a 2006 Ford Escape Hybrid which was a disaster in so many ways. They switched me to GM and I have been happy there, so happy in fact my 2014 Thor is powered by a GM V8 workhorse platform. Nice toad, I would have driven it a few miles before doing the mod, but if you trust Lincoln then why not convert it right away.
Your work looks neat and tidy and professional, much better than when I would get my Escape back from my local Ford dealer!!!
