1996 Explorer

I'd like to hear from any explorer folks who also are sharing a garage with an Excape or just think this is a really special site and want to join in.

Well we had an 2002 Eddie Bower until the Mrs. modified the front end with a Nissan. Now we have a Durango which she hates and wants an explorer again. :bang:

I've got to say the propblem with the Explorer is it is too good -12 years old, but only has only 72,000 miles and is in pristine condition. I'd love to have a new Escape but can't justify changing a really good ride for payments.

Well the older exporers are about a big and the new escapes so if yours is in great shape your right, why make the payment for a simular vehicle? :))

My parents have a '97 V6 Explorer. It has 230,XXX miles on it. We JUST replaced the transmission, that was the only thing that has ever gone wrong with it. Beside the *s**** load of scratchs in it, the paint is almost perfect. I love that car, it just keeps on running.

I'm sure in a few years we will be back into the explorer again too.

i looked at the newer style explorers before i got my escape, and its not much bigger so i got the escape. my buddy had a late 90's 2dr 4x4 5sp and he was forever fixing it, but then again he does have bad luck when it comes to vehicles lol
