    Mark98's 1998 Explorer Sport

    Haha, believe it or not, my wife and I both swore we weren't getting another red vehicle. I wanted black, silver, or graphite gray. But this was a steal of a price (since no one can drive a manual anymore) and so I ended up with another red vehicle..... :scratch:

    Mark98's 1998 Explorer Sport

    Still around! Suprising though because I now stick out like a sore thumb. We joke and call it the "Liberty HD" :D

    Mark98's 1998 Explorer Sport

    Just realized I never posted a picture of the replacement ride. It grew up a little since I bought it. :D

    $69 performance chip info

    If you want a performance programmer, this is the only one I would recommend. My brother has one for his truck and it is a noticeable difference even though it's only rated for 23 hp...

    Advice on buying a used 2dr, 5 speed

    Nothing wrong with a jeep liberty. I got mine when I sold my explorer. I love the thing! :D

    Advice on buying a used 2dr, 5 speed

    Hey now.... :D Actually I can agree with that. I sold my explorer sport for a Liberty and my sport had waaaaay more room in the cargo area.

    Rattle from Rear Wheel

    Yes only on the back. I forget (been a long time since I did the parking brake on my ex) if the parking brake is one side or both. But I am thinking it is the Passenger rear side since that is the side I worked on.

    Rattle from Rear Wheel

    I second this. I just had a very similiar rattle to what you described on my jeep liberty. (About the same as the Ex, parking brake inside the rotor) I pulled off the rotor and the parking brake pads fell out (or what was left of them.) Replaced the pads and no more noise. :thumbsup:

    Dang load levelers!

    Really? I could move mine easily. They almost seemed like they weren't effective unless they had at least 100 lbs compressing them.

    Mark98's 1998 Explorer Sport

    Well, needed a 4 door(children) soooo...... Explorer was sold for $3,500. Replaced it with a 2003 Jeep Liberty with 50,000 miles with a 5 speed! :D Although I will miss ole red :(

    I had them and didn't have any problem compressing them while putting them on.

    New coil overs for front and back

    I guess I did word it kinda wierd. :scratch: The jeep does have coils in the front and back though. EDIT: Guess I should say struts in the front.

    New coil overs for front and back

    Was just joking that I ditched the torsion bars and leaf springs for coils. You can change it if you want, was just trying to have some fun. ;)

    New coil overs for front and back

    It pains me to say this, but I will be picking up a 2003 Jeep liberty with 50,000 miles and a 5 speed to replace my Ex. The Explorer was a good vehicle, but having a child with a 2 door does not work the greatest. :( The jeep(amazingly the same color scheme as the ex)was way to good of...

    How to: Rear Timing Chain Tensioner Replacement

    Could you get a link? The only thing I can find is around $50 so I'm hoping I searched for the wrong thing. :(

    What tires do you have on your vehicle?

    My Ex wears General Grabbers AT2. Awesome tire. :thumbsup:

    Rear shocks. Anyone tried/seen these?

    They ride a little stiffer but still comfortable enough for everyday driving. :thumbsup:

    Rear shocks. Anyone tried/seen these?

    Yes, I use them(actually mine are Monroe Sensatrac load levelers, but they look exactly the same). And whoever had my explorer before had them put on too. They work really well, and I don't have that much sag in my rear end and I even have the monoleafs. :thumbsup: BTW: Order you shocks at...

    Vista really that bad?

    Haha :D

    Vista really that bad?

    I just think that a new operating system should be lightyears in difference(think 98 to XP) and improvements(which I'll give Windows 7 credit, it has major improvements.) compared to the previous windows version. That is why "I" call it a service pack, not that it actually is (as it seems I came...

    Vista really that bad?

    Taken from one of the many articles about windows 7. http://www.businessweek.com/magazine/content/09_06/b4118000771744.htm "The new operating system allows for finer control, and Vista's more annoying behavior—compatibility and performance—has been tamed" Sounds like a service pack to...

    Vista really that bad?

    I can guarentee Microsoft did not go back to drawing board for Windows 7. Windows 7 has many roots that dig deep into Vista. You cannot not redesign from scratch an operating system in the short amount of time between Vista and Windows 7. Windows 7 is what Vista should have been from the...

    Vista really that bad?

    Correction, I will agree that Vista was bad UNTIL Service pack 1. Windows 7 is pretty much Vista Service Pack 2. And as far as arguing over whether Dell's are bad computers.... well, I've seen my fair share of "oem" computers that should have run MUCH faster than they did(HP, Dell, Compaq...
