    Nope- it says "does not show any signs of collision damage" but the pinstripe goes all the way around the back, and the V8 emblems are way too high. I think the whole truck has been repainted.

    I had a dealer friend run a carfax and it doesn't show any accidents. Are you sure the emblem is to high? My 97 emblem sits at the top of the wheel well like this one does.

    Yup, too high. :)

    The stripe is wrong too. They either ended at the tailgate, swept up the D-pillar on the Eddie Bauer:

    ...or down around the taillights on the gate on the Limited.
    It's been re-striped...

    Tires are mismatched too.

    Carfax isn't infallible, they even had to put in their info "nobody knows everything..." after they got sued. :)

    You may be right Joe.

    Could've been repainted. Bumpers don't look as good as the paint does.

    Definitely. Very clean truck. Could have been restriped at some point, the tape does eventually start to peel and chip.

    That should definitely reflect on the carfax report. The guys offered a 30 day drivetrain warranty with it.

    Not if it isn't reported to carfax. Carfax isn't the be-all, end-all. Lots of stuff never gets reported to Carfax.

    I mean, if you want it, by all means- it is a nice truck. But, with as many Explorers there are out there for sale, why take the chance on issues when it's not a smoking deal to begin with? Just my .02 :)

    Where I live Joe it's tough to find non rusted explorers with the V8. I decided to run an auto fax check and it was in an accident in 2007, but with no details of the accident. If he'll go down to 1800 I'll probably gamble it. It's going to cost 300 to get it shipped to where I live to boot.

    If you know where there's a clean one for less or the same money my ears are open, lol.

    looks just like my '01 EB. the V8 emblem is way too high. mine doesn't have the pin striping, so i can't say about that, but i'm pretty sure it's been repainted. i'd be concerned about it being a flood car. i'd want to check that one out very carefully.

    I agree that's a good deal around here too but its probably a screwed up mess.

    Shipped to where you live? Does this mean you won't be able to see it until after the purchase? If so, I'd keep looking. Too many questions on this one to not be able to put hands on it before the sale. Maybe someone on the forum in that area would be able to check it out for you?

    There are so many Explorers for sale, there is no reason to buy one sight unseen.

    It has definitely been wrecked. The right front part of the bumper cover has been ripped off and then it appears to have clear sealant used to try and reattach it. Look closely at the photo.
