    22" Wheels For Explorer

    I have 22’s. 20’s are too small for the Ex, yet 22’s were available on the smaller Edge Sport, and that’s the ones I have. The ones you posted have to many spokes for my liking, and not a fan of black wheels. The ‘phony’ hood scoop, why? Even if it could be made to fit, it would still be NON...

    How to get better Gas Mileage?

    Better gas mileage worth talking about? Give me a break! You bought a 4500 lbs pound brick, and you want mileage like a Prius, well that’s what you should have bought. :laugh: You could always tear out the AC, remove the interior, and install with aluminum folding deck chairs, remove all glass...

    2019 special edition packages just announced

    Hate ALL the wheels shown, especially on the Splorer. Ford is still fixated on lots of gaudy chrome (oh those tacky door handles). Was hoping they might iincrease the size of the infotainment screen to say 9-10” like a lot of higher end SUV’s. Also, thought Ford would get it together and ‘Style...

    Steering wheel peeling

    Re: cheap after market SWC... They’re on older cars cause the owners were too cheap to get their old SW professionally redone, and hide the condition with a cheesy strech on cover. My fav is a “wheelskin’, the Frankenstein stiching looks bloody horrendous. You guys must have sweaty hands.I...

    Aftermarket wheels

    Looks good! What are your wheel/tire specs?

    Sometimes I wonder if I really should buy a 2019 Explorer.

    You are quite naive! Very uniformed! The car industry ( and others) is a rat race, go go go. Have a friend who worked at one plant for 35 years. You want to take a piss, you need to call a spare relief guy if he’s not already covering some other job. You wait! Plants are huge, washrooms far away...

    Did the dealer replace my battery with the wrong one?

    Peter, don’t have one on my Limited either, never saw it on the option sheet. The old school purpose to keep the battery from freezing, really meant for ‘open country’ outside non sheltered parking, insulation if you will. I have seen them in the aftermarket. Had to replace my battery last...

    13' Custom Headlights

    Well, that’s why I asked that question. Everybody wants ‘custom’, but totally in the dark regarding cost. As Peter pointed out the cost of stock headlights (before tax), are $$$! There is a post on here about a guy who had a shop redo his stock lights install better projectors, got rid of the...
