How to become an Elite Explorer
Here's my registry. It's not going to really serve as much of a build log or anything, just to help keep track of the (minor) things I do to it along the way.
(Edit: yeah, that all turned out to not be true...... Keep reading to see what I mean)
This is my 1997 XLT. I bought it on 10/13/2010 with 117,500 miles for $2000. It has the SOHC V6, 3.55 rear end and the "Controltrac 4 wheel drive".
This is basically as it was when I brought it home:
6,000 lb receiver
Ford mudflaps (removed)
hood wind/bug deflector
This Explorer wasn't abused- just a little neglected. The interior is in good shape. The paint isn't in horrible shape- some dings and scratches here and...
Well I've been gathering information and giving information here for a while now and just found this thread! :rolleyes:
Anyways, I got my explorer when I was 16 as my first vehicle 6.5 years ago with 61k on it from my Grandpa who recently then couldn't drive anymore. Ever since I got it I have made a project out of it. First it started with just fixing some spot rust and waxing and the story just gets longer!!
Since then over the years I have done many mods including:
-Gibson cat-back exhaust
-K&N intake system
-Custom electric fan set up with a painless controller. (I used a dual fan set-up from a 97 ford contour for clearance reasons)
-dimond-cut head lights
-"lego" tail lights, lol (I didn't realize they looked that...
The new turd mobile. 2000 Mountaineer v8 awd.
Was living it's prior life on a dusty road. Must tear out interior and deep clean.
Driver window off track "or something" and will not roll down. It tries but the rear part wants to stay up.
3 out of 4 door handles have issues. I have 4 new outer handles on order.
Cracked passenger side tail light housing. ( Ebay for some cool tail lights)
Compass-Thermometer thingy lit up and went out--idunno bout that yet
Door locks seem sticky, probably has to do with the handles.
It has a funky purple color trim with red metallic ( you'll have that every now and then) :(
Gas tank was full
I am the 2nd owner!!
Is from the local area, which means no salt!
As per the instructions above here's the info:
2000 Explorer Eddie Bauer Edition 5.0
I'm from Parsons KS and you can contact me easily through a PM here.
Well, they aren't good pics. They were provided by the seller using a cell phone. But this is my 2000 Explorer Eddie Bauer Edition. I am going to "visit" it today at the sellers house and pull the radiator. My next day off I get to install a new one (would do them both today, but had to order the radiator). Jon (Turdle) has already provided me with the link to the radiator replacement thread. (Thanks again Jon)
Mods will be slow due to funding and the need to finish putting an engine in my other vehicle (seen below). Probably just go with exhaust and slightly more aggresive tires...
Hi, I've been lurking since 1997, posting since 2002, and figure with all my incessant, and probably minor work postings in the "What Did You do to your (1st Gen) Explorer Today" thread, it was probably about time I just bit the bullet and make my own addition to the registry. After all, I don't think she's going anywhere soon.
So above, there she is, 93' Ford Explorer Sport "X" as me and the wife call it or "The X". My mom bought it new in 1993 for 19K with 15 miles on it that was not her test drive, in order to pull horse trailers for trail rides. I got it in 2002 as my first car and never got rid of, replaced, or upgraded because when you spend less than the cost to replace every 100K in maintenance, with a few hundred at most...
Howdy! My name is Sebastian (Left). Excited to post to these forums! I've been lurking for around 6months, and have learned a ton.
Bit about me: Grew up in Texas, moved out to Denver about 3 years ago. I'm a caretaker for my dad (right) who is a stage IV cancer patient. As a kid, we used to daydream about what kind of project car we could build together. As time went on, that dream became more and more of a pipedream, but hopefully we'll be able to knock that one off of the bucket list. We moved West because he used to be a forester, and wanted to be in the mountains. I used to drive a RWD sedan, but didn't enjoy it much in the snow. Found a '94 Ford Explorer 2dr 4x4 up in the mountains earlier this year for $700, and...
Here's the info: 2010 Ford Explorer XLT 4x4 V6 SOHC. I currently live in Belton, Missouri. I Bought the explorer off of my grandpa, so i know that it wasn't driven hard over the years. It has 127,000 miles on it, and the only current issues are a possible vacuum leak and a broken fuel gauge. I might eventually get the fuel gauge fixed, but i don't exactly want to spend a ton of money on the problem when i can keep track of my fuel usage just fine using the trip meter. As far as features, other than 4x4 there really isn't much, its pretty close to the base package if i were to guess. All i have done to it so far is remove some unnecessary badges on the tailgate and remove the running boards (which made it look way cooler.) My plans are...

Hey yall Im Onebigbird, I love my explorer's this is actually my third, Im presently taking the time to do some long over due maintenance as well as a couple of upgrades to make it more user friendly for me. I bought this about a year ago and drove it about 6 months, i got a great deal on it well south of 2k. It has the 4.6 x2 in it with 147,k miles on it. Didnt notice at the time of purchase that one, the was a heck of a smell! Dogs,kids, IDK what it came from but it was masked pretty well at purchase. Secondly, although stated many times the vehicle in great shape, I discovered a prior wreck had occurred at some point, because the steel bumper, behind the front ends painted bumper, was bent back approximately 4". Im addressing all...
Hi Im Kevin and this is my 2001 Sport that I bought second hand in Florida in January 2005 with 58,000 miles for $7000. I've had her now for almost 18 years in NYC and she's now got 164,000 miles and still running and looking great! I use her for my Home theater business and hasn't let me down or stranded ever! If you're in Brooklyn and looking to meet up let me know. Here's a recent YouTube video I shot of her 21st birthday detailing.
I bought my 93' EB a couple years ago from the original owner with the complete service history of the vehicle, even down to the original Firestone recall letter. I have been creeping the forums ever since. It is currently a stock setup and I plan to keep it that way as it is my daily driver, and is already suited to driving in my climate. It currently has 140k on the odometer and retains the factory cayman green.
