    Saleen Explorer XP8

    Sweet aren't they. IMO theres no other better looking street truck, it's just plain mean. I'm having a *****-of-a time trying to find one though. Either way I'll end up with an explorer. If not the Saleen, than a black Eddi Bauer becasue I hate the xlt's seats. And I'll mod the heck out of it.

    someone don't like my X ......

    oh yeh, forgot to add something - when he was younger his mom tried taking one of his bb guns away and he nailed her in the stomach with one. Speaking of all this, did anyone ever see the movie "The Good Son", crazy f'n movie. Remember that part where McCauly Cullkin (how ever the hell you...

    someone don't like my X ......

    That also happened to me, but I actually got hit by the BB, except I wasn't in a car. There was this kid who lived nextdoor to my friend who was a plain-out punk ass. This kid was always getting into trouble, one of those I'm so tuff kids. Well this one day some friends and I were at my friends...

    00 XLT 4x4

    amjaxpc - ohv had 160 horsepower Jason - I'm with you I thought they eliminated the ohv engine in 2000, but it might have been 2001.

    Shopping for new shocks... recommendations???

    I got my Edelbrock IAS shocks last year for my B-Day, they are expensive but worth it. They smoothed out the ride incredibly, they have a nice firm feel and definitley reduced body-roll. The first time I towed with them to our lakehouse I had 4 friends, all our stuff, my system, a few beer cases...

    How much is your insurance???

    My mom paid about $3900 for full coverage on me (3 yrs ago when I was 16) I've had 2 bad accidents but not my fault and no speeding tickets, now I'm 19 and I don't know the exact amount she pays now but she said it dropped a little scince I went to college. Also she just traded in her 97' Mounty...

    '94 XLT Owners !!!!

    Oh Yeh, what is exactly wrong with these transmissions, Did we just get lucky with our trucks? Cause my friend also has a 96' ohv XLT and it's a little over 80,000 miles on the original tranny. But my tranny only shifts a little firmer from 1st to 2nd gear than when I got it three years ago, and...

    '94 XLT Owners !!!!

    Diablo - Yeh my mom is a pretty fast driver (her other cars before this truck were a Porsche, Buick GNX, we used to have a Chevelle LS6 and a few others) the funny thing is that my grandparents got her the truck as a present (and also so she wouldn't speed as much) but it didn't help, the 5.0...

    '94 XLT Owners !!!!

    Nope, everything is still original, the only things I had to have replaced were something that got nocked lose in the air conditioner after an accident (it was blowing hot air until one of the mechanics at the dealership tightened something and now it blows cold again), and I had to get my axle...

    tranny gone!

    got my 94' with 50000 miles and my mom gave it to my lil sis now with 93000 miles on the original tranny. And I also dogged the hell out of it everyday. I tow our boat and waverunners every summer back and forth to our lakehouse over not the best roads and not one problem with the tranny still...

    SOME CHIC SMASHED MY X

    Definitley get a report, my grandfather owns an Allstate Insurance office, and I can tell you right now unless you get a report filed your screwed because like they said before it will come down to your word against hers. And her insurance will not pay unless theirs proof (the report). Also...

    rough riding in the front...please help!!

    I'd check the bushings also, the dealrtship replaced my and that fixed the problem you described.

    '94 XLT Owners !!!!

    I had a 94' but my mom gave it to my sister. It was one of the more reliable years. The only thing that I had to replace on mine was the axle bushings that was it. And I dogged the hell out of it scince I was 16 (so about 3 years now) I mean everything from racing those damn ricers and flooring...

    Saleen Explorer XP8

    If it had a fully independant suspension it was probably done at a shop. You can buy most of the saleen add-ons from Saleen. I know Explorer Xpress had a customized 1st gen. Explorer, but does anyone know if Saleen offered a 1st gen Explorer, I'm pretty sure they didn't?

    Saleen Explorer XP8

    I made a mistake in my other post I've only heard on the XP6 but have never seen one, only XP8's, I would guess the only difference would be that it has the v6 engine 4.0 SOHC instead of the 5.0.

    Saleen Explorer XP8

    I don't think they made them in 94, I know they officially made them between 98-00 and I think 2001, the 94 might have just been customized by Saleen parts, but I'm not sure if they made stuff for the 1st gen. explorer. You are right though, they do handle awesome, they have just about no body...

    Saleen Explorer XP8

    Thanks for the help guys. The only only ones I found for sale were out of state, so the only problem I have now is convincing my mom to either drive it down or use the autotrain. Frankrizzo- I know there was the XP6 but I was only refering to the XP8 because actually I find it funny that...

    Saleen Explorer XP8

    Theres the N/A XP8 with 222 hp and the supercharged XP8 with 286 hp. I'm trying to find a N/A version to keep the cost down for my mom but also because I think there's a lot of better superchargers out there than the eaton to get more power out of the 5.0. It's just downright sinister looking...

    Saleen Explorer XP8

    I've tried that, there is always this guy posting his white Saleen which you prbably saw, it was the supercharged one. He puts it on every month for awhile now but pulls it off the next day every single time. This sucks, they made them between 98-2000, the funny part is I called some dealers...

    Saleen Explorer XP8

    Well it looks like I'm not getting the Audi S4, even used it's still a little pricey. So I gotta stay true to the Explorers. I'm definitley getting a truck, my mom and I were looking at the 2002 Ex's. but the more and more I think about it I want to find a used Saleen Explorer XP8 more than...

    Ex Vs..all other competitors

    Just curious if anyone knows about the supercharged pathfinder on the 1st page? I've never heard of a supercharged pathfinder.:confused:

    Ex Vs..all other competitors

    The new 4.6 V8 is much better than the 5.0. Don't get me wrong, I love my moms 5.0 Mounty but like any ohv engine it gets too winded in the high rpm range even with mods added on, the 4.6 on the other hand pulls very strongly all the way to redline. The new 4.6 is definitley quicker than 5.0 off...

    Ex Vs..all other competitors

    question? When the hell was the Pathfinder supercharged, you must be thinkin about the X-tera. And actually the X is pretty quick for a heavy truck (excluding the 4.0 ohv engine.) Like someone said before it all depends on weight, gearing ect.) I drove my friends Durango R/T and didn't like...

    Explorer V-8 - What is the 1st year it was put in?

    Both engines are excellent, like the others said the 5.0 has been around for a long time and is very reliable. My mom bought her Mountaineer new in 97' and she's put 78,000 hard miles on it (plenty of speeding tickets) and the engine still runs perfect with nothing replaced. The 5.0 is cheaper...
