    I had a 97 4.0 2door sport
    and before i got rid of it, i took
    the hitch off that was bolted on the back.
    Now i have a 97 Mountaineer 5.0 4door
    and im wondering if its a direct bolt on or not.

    I dont think it is. Check out my hitch install video in the link in my signature. Shows a close up of the hitch so you can compare and see if the bolt holes are somewhat lined up.

    Hidden Hitch lists the same part number for 2-4 door Explorers, and says no drilling required.
