    I'll have to check that site out when it comes back up. To me it really matters on how strict it is. I have a little 20 month old who occupies a lot of my time. I want to be able to go on runs, but not to be frowned upon when I can't.

    Sikora, if my memory serves me right, this is basically a family oriented group. They don't do the nasty (fun) stuff that often, just trails, a little mud, and snow in the winter. Give them a shout. I'll email them when I get home. I have an 8 month old boy and is the reason why I got the four door in the first place. Wife wanted an Escape because they were "cute", nuh-uh. I had a 1999 Ranger OR Package, w/LS 4.10 rear. I miss it a little, but couldn't trust that damn passenger airbag switch to work, or not work. Love my son too much :eek:

    Jay

    Flip them an email and I think you're good to go with the kid and all. I'll give them a shout tonight and throw in the word for ya. We may have to hook up sometime, I've been out of the major loop for a bit, now have a little time to do this again.

    Sounds good. Thanks for the info Jay. I'll check out their website and shoot them an email.

    Just to let you know....I know it's a little late and all....but I find it much easier to put my son in my 95 2 door than my mom's 2002 4 door. On the 2 door...the front seat slides way up. Just a little info from past expieriences. Hit me up sometime, I have a group of a few buddies who like to go ridin to.

    Really! I would have figured the opposite, but I could see that, didn't think about that! I play paintball during the summer so the four doors have already come in handy. I do notice the difference with the flat rear floor though. I have plenty of room for all my gear and the buddys'. Haven't used the roof rack.........yet!

    PM me your email, and I'll do the same.

    Well isn't that the pot calling the kettle black. There you were crying awhile ago about folks on the board being smart a$$es. I actually agreed with you, shame on me, huh? I appologize, oh wise one. I had never heard of someone calling a 4 door XLS a sport. When I think of a sport I think of a 2 door model. I will gracefully exit.
    SSIKORA, no disrespect intended your way. Thanks for correcting me without resorting to name calling. Before any Mods jump on me, I have total respect for the forum, I just had to get that off my chest.

    When purchasing my ride, I looked in the brochure, pamphlet, booklet and the following models are available through the FoMoCo for the 2002 Explorer. Limited, Eddie Bauer, XLT, XLS Sport, and finally the XLS. What is underneath my name is what Ford designates it as, and that is what I put down, the truth.

    Just a thought on the GT40. If they really want to be successful, they will have a trade out program for old explorers. That way... I can have one. :)

    Well of course the Hummer is still in the picture but you know, Im not sure what to think about the new H2. I personally like the body of the original Hummer... Its seems like they made the H2 to be a Moms version... kinda weird.... i dunno.

    If they rerelease the Bronco, It should be the same size as the original, maybe a little bigger, not expedition based, too damn big, Show me an Expedition running trails.
    Just me .002
