So this will be my 5th Explorer. I've owned a 00' Eddie Bauer V8, a 99 OHV 2wd, an 01 Limited V8, and most recently, a heavily modified 94 prerunner. I sought out this specific combination for over a month. I am very picky about cleanliness. I needed 4x4, and I did not want to mess with a transfer case swap with a V8. So here is my spec list of the "perfect" Explorer that I was finally able to find. 98 XLT 147,000 miles SOHC/5R55E 4x4 4.10 Rear end with limited slip Color matched grill Running boards (could have lived without them) Leather interior An inch thick file of receipts! My plan for this truck is to keep it as a comfortable daily driver, as well as something that is capable enough for the overlanding adventures that I like to do with my family. Front suspension - BTF uniball upper arms Debating on 2.0" coilovers, or a larger 2.5" shock while keeping the torsion bars Rear suspension - Home built lift shackle 2.5x10" shocks Misc - Custom roof rack 20" led bar in the front bumper Front valance/fog light delete Tint front windows & rear glass 265/75R16 all terrains Maybe a nice set of wheels at some point Nice stereo Hand held vhf radio mount Good tablet and phone mounts Upgraded headlights That's really about it. Just want to keep this thing simple and clean.
