      Welcome to the site, they're basically the same, the Mountaineers are a little nicer on average, but an eddie bauer, or limited is just as nice. I personally like the front grill and head lights of a mountaineer better.

      Depends on the price and condition. As already stated a base Mounty will Be nicer than a base Explorer, and the glass headlight lenses on the Mounty are a lot nicer than the yellowing plastic houses on the Explorer. More Mounty's have the preferred V8. I'd buy either, if they were rust free, and had the V8.

      To me, it's personal preference. I prefer to look of the 2nd gen Explorer better. Never quite got into the Mounty front end myself (looks cross-eyed to me). The Mounty does come with the 5.0 more often than not which is a good thing. A Mounty tends to be spec'd like an Eddie Bauer or Limited Explorer so it really does come down to looks.
