    Hi, I have a white 2 doors 2wd 4.0 97 ohv MT ford explorer.... yeaaahhhh, i just love it. It has taken me anywhere I want to.

    I have been reading some topics in this forum and I expect soon to show some pictures of my ivan-mobile... ja!.

    Anyway, My wife thinks my car is old and I spend money on repairs but I do not think so and I have been able to keep my truck. If she wants a better car... sell hers... not mine. This has been our travel partner...

    Here some pictures.... I expect your comments. Soon I will be taking some more pictures of the motor and accesories.

    Keep it, you won't find any new SUV like it ever again. You will be able to find cheap parts for it forever too. Does your wife really want car payments?

    welcome to the site.I'd keep fixing it. It's cheaper than a new one.

    @hitchingmike: Yes, she wants to pay forever.... thinks a Kia SportageR would look nice... I will keep it... at least a couple more years and no payments....

    @1atony: yes, parts are not expensive really, newest car parts are expensive...
