    We should of gotten this

    If this was the next Explorer, I would buy one. I need something a little more off road friendly than the current one.

    Using an SCT SF3 tuner on two Explorers

    I have one with all 5 unlocks left. I got it for my wife's explorer. Then a guy ran a red light and totaled it. She went with a different vehicle with the insurance money.

    The Ultimate Sacrifice

    So last week my wife was going through an intersection when some :censored: guy in a Chevy truck ran a red light and took the front end off her 97 EB that only had 90,000 miles on its sexy V8. The lights are close to synced in that area but no quite. So he thought he could time the light and get...

    What to look for?

    Well I bought it and it even had some extra parts. It needs a few interior detail pieces fixed or replaced and some rust above the running boards repaired. It looks and runs well enough to only have 83k on it. So for $2500 it was a pretty good deal. Thanks to all the useful tips here she will be...

    What to look for?

    I am going to look at a 97 V8 Eddie Bauer tomorrow that only has 82K on it. It is a V8 so I know they are fairly bulletproof. This will be the first V8 and the first 2nd gen I have owned in a while. I know it needs ball joints. Is there any thing else I should be looking for?

    2011 Spring Gobbler hunting

    To answer your original post I do this to. It has been a rough year for turkey hunting. I finally caught a break and finally saw a tom. I had to move four times to get ahead of him to get a shot. He finally gobbled once when I called at the end, right before legal light, and I shot him at 20...

    Occasional Air bag light

    Mine occasionally had a problem with a wire being pinched under the front seats. See if it looks like on of the wires with the yellow cap got caught in the seat track.

    More ethanol....nice :(

    I run E10 in my '01 sport and get 20-25 mpg stock depending on the split between highway and city. I use it all winter down to -15 F with no problems and I don't use any additives. Besides here it is cheaper than straight gas.

    cant find 4*4CM

    I had the same problem with the computers not recognizing the numbers for some reason. However one parts person finally got me the right one. He said something about there being a change in the part number. I can't remember what the number was. If you want a control module I have two that...

    It is true? Key duplicate.

    The dealer cut and programed my key all for the $85. I had to do it there, as they were the only ones who could do it around here. It took all of 10-15 minutes with the longest part being while their computer talked to my truck.

    i have ??? about throttle bodys

    It depends if your throttle body is plastic or metal. They switched between build 1 and build 2. It turned out that mine was build 2, with the plastic throttle body. I bought the throttle body and it would not bolt up. If your intake manifold has the two tubes on the sides it will work if it...

    4.0 intake manifolds?

    The intake does matter if you want to use a 4.6 throttle body. On my '01 Sport with the newer intake it will not bolt up as they changed to a plastic TB of a different size. Because of this i have the TB and it won't work unless I decided to switch to the older intake.

    will this fit?

    In 2005 not all the plugs in the explorer were the same it depended on which radio you had. Your explorer will have the WWC "world" plugs unless it had the CD6 and the sub, which has Phase II plugs. The radio from the expedition has Phase II plugs. You could still use it but it will need a...

    Sorry for the delay my truck got hit a couple weeks ago. So I have been busy tracking down parts and haven't felt like being on here. When we started moving wires around, before we got to far from the module it started working, and has worked ever since. Originally I was able to get it to work...

    SRS Connector Under Driver's Seat

    One time I had the wire get caught in the seat track. This caused it to ground out. Check the wire to see if when you were wiggling it that you weren't just ungrounding it.
