    2nd gen interior color options??? “Shades of Tan to be specific”

    Thanks everyone for all your help. Got a new visor, gonna have to split the visor and change out the mirrors. The warning label on the mirror door is different than my other ones that came with the car. That may make me seem crazy wanting my warning labels to match lmao!! I may leave it alone...

    2nd gen interior color options??? “Shades of Tan to be specific”

    I have a ‘97 Explorer EB with what I believe is a prairie tan interior. The interior trim code on the door says FX but I cannot find proof online that says FX is prairie tan. Is there different shades of prairie tan from 1997 to 2001?? I know the 96 and 95 was Sattle tan which is much darker...

    ‘97 Explorer Extended Crank issues

    Took it to the ford dealer this time, it’s been there since 8 this morning; guess they’re keeping it over night cause they never called back after I talked to em around 2pm. They told me that fuel is leaking back but when you turn the key on the fuel pressure jumps straight to 40. Trying to...

    Y/W man, be proud of your ol Ex!! My deceased grandma/grandpa had a '93 Explorer Eddie Bauer they bought new; had lots of memories in that thing! My uncle had a '92 Explorer Eddie Bauer then he gave it to his daughter (my cousin) when she was 16 and my brother had a '00 Explorer Eddie Bauer...

    New to site 94 explorer 28,000 miles

    Thats a very nice 1st gen Explorer!!! Almost impossible to find them with low miles!! Don't worry about what others say about how much you can get out of it "right now" or what you paid for it. My grandpaw always told me "what is it worth to you" The car has already 100% depreciated in value...

    What rims should I get for '97 Explorer Eddie Bauer

    Hey all i've been looking around on the internet for some wheels that would look good on my '97 Explorer Eddie Bauer 4x4. The rims that are on it are ok, just never been wild about them. Can't find any pics online of 2nd gen X's Eddie Bauer with aftermarket wheels on them. Would like to stay...

    Sounds like you have a very nice EB too, 182k still aint nothing for these Explorers, they run a LONG time if tookin care of properly & you don't drive them like sports cars. The 5.0L is a GREAT engine; they remind me of a 350 chevy, very simple motors. I love having the 4wd b/c in my 02...

    I love the Eddie Bauer package!! Its a shame they don't offer that trim level anymore, I believe the only one they still make with the Eddie Bauer package is the Expedition; not 100% sure though. You can probably find an interior for yours, there out there! Just keep an eye out.
