    Miles are unknown since the 2000 Explorer the motor came out of was cut in half and missing the dash. The front and rear axles came out of another Exploer so I could have 3.73s vice 3.55s. I think that one had about 140K. The transmission was rebuilt less than a 1000 miles ago. I would say its just a trail rig. I am moving back by Andy in about a year and I dont really have a need for it right now and dont know if its worth dragging across country or not. I am originally from Oregon and want to get home.

    Not to mention an Explorer is kinda big for some of the trails around here unless you want to leave a trail of body parts to make sure you can make it back.

    Don't get me know I loved my X, but the amount of money to make it a great wheeler was too much for me, plus I was always nervous to mess up the body. My Zuks have been WAY more fun but much of that might be 'cause they are paid for an not my daily driver.

    okay, i'm going to throw this out on this section, i tried on the off road planing and no bites,, so lets see if there any intrest here,, Small place out in MD.

    Green Ridge, Md 18 miles loop i think and it's looking fairly tame. Might be a fun ride w/ min damage if any. Lots of things on youtube about it, from other groups, sooooo if anyone is interested, pm or say something ,,

    finally. ive been looking everywhere for something like this. me and a couple buddies have tried getting a bunch of people with explorers to meet up and have some fun in our ex's. we even have a group on facebook. so if you have an explorer and your in nova or pretty much all of VA look us up.
