    Brake Lights don't work!

    Was your third brake light initially not working as well? I'm experiencing a similar issue after replacing my alternator. All lights including the third brake light are working except the left and right brake lights. Fuses and bulbs are fine, so I might swap out the switch. Thanks!

    Best way to debadge?

    I just did this to my 2000 XLT. Never underestimate the power of a sunny day. All I used was the draw string from a pair of shorts in my truck and the good ol' sun to take mine off. I didn't have any guide holes, but that doesn't mean that you won't. Did anyone else have an issue with the...

    Premade VS. Custom Cat Back Exhaust

    I'm assuming with some people talking about taking the cats off...there are issues with inspections? Sounds like a new system with taking a couple of my cats off would be ideal, but if I have to deal with inspection issues, I might just opt out of taking them off. How much of the performance...

    Proactive maintenance?

    Hello guys/gals, So I bought my 2000 Ex in March and just recently t-boned someone going around 40mph. Luckily it wasn't my fault, so it's newly out of the body shop. It has around 120k miles and since I've never had one before, I was just curious at this point, which parts under and hood and...

    Vibration between gears.

    This isn't currently a huge issue, but before it becomes one, I was hoping to maybe receive some help. At times, when my transmission is switching gears, there is a quick moment where there's a vibration of sorts. It's almost as if I was running over a rumble strip between gears, and just for...

    AWD in the sand, Planning a trip to Cape Hatteras

    Dang, you guys going out to the beach this weekend?! I just saw this thread...but if you guys go out again this summer, I'd definitely be up for it. I'm running stock AWD, but from the sound of it, I think I'd be alright.

    Custom Exhaust/Spare Tire

    Hey guys, I'm new around here and I haven't seen a thread pertaining to this, so I figured I'd just throw the idea out there and if someone else has any knowledge about it I'd get pointed in the right direction. I was thinking about getting dual exhaust on my Ex and have seen everyones posts...

    First time owner!

    Hah, yeeeah. I've already spent a couple hours looking around. Perhaps my first endeavor will be replacing my headlights...but we'll see.

    First time owner!

    Hello guys/gals, I was just googling around trying to find some custom work people have done to their Explorers and stumbled across your site. I just bought a 2000 Explorer XLT on Monday. It has the 5.0L V8 and AWD. Like I said in the title, this is my first time owning an Explorer or even a...
