    Thanks Don, it’s a weight off my mind that plugging in the NOS module I found will not “brick” my X! And I’ll save your info for future Gen 1 small parts needs.

    Hi Benny, Can I ask a parts question? Is changing the anti-theft module in a 1993 Explorer Limited with factory alarm a plug and play operation? The module part number is: F3VF-19A366-BA. You can also PM me if you'd like. Thanks! David

    Bizarre Limited factory alarm module behavior

    Thanks for responding. In the photo of the connector ports, the left connector controls the keyless entry and panic via keyfob. The right connector enables intrusion alarm and starter disable. As I learned by searching a LOT of posts when this originally happened, you can drive the X with the...

    Bizarre Limited factory alarm module behavior

    1993 Ford Explorer Limited with factory alarm - My alarm module drowned when I was washing my car (common problem with Ford Explorer Limited and others - covered by a TSB). Headlights and flashers and horn all going, wouldn't stop by pressing unlock on key fob or inserting my original FORD key...

    Sway Bars

    When I bought my 93 XLT 5-speed in 1997, one of the first things I did was install Bilstein shocks and mega front/rear sway bars with poly bushings from IPD (I had a sporty Volvo sedan and was a believer in big sway bars). While it handled great on pavement, I didn't realize the negative effect...

    Congrats, @Craigerz And your "ambulances" are a lot more cool than the Navy ambulances I drove as a corpsman back in the 70's. :D

    Sept EF Lottery

    I was a first responder as a Navy Hospital Corpsman (drove ambulances, as well as worked in the Naval Hospital ER). That was many years ago, but it is something that never leaves you, as I discovered in June of 2010. I volunteered at a Western States 100 Mile Endurance Race aid station at the...

    June EF Lottery

    My friend Bram lives in the Netherlands and comes to the US occasionally on vacation. If it is winter, I always take him out to the mountains for some driving in the snow. We were in the middle of nowhere, on a remote forest service road, when we came upon this pickup stuck in a ditch. It was...

    June EF Lottery

    Ever heard of the Donner Party in the 1800’s? They weren’t prepared for a snowy winter, got stuck in a mountain pass, and ended up eating each other to stay alive. Fast forward a little over a hundred years, July, and I (and my 60's Volvo sedan) decided to drive Interstate 80 from Sacramento...

    April EF Lottery

    @Turdle I really liked those old Cougars. I knew a guy back in early 70's (in the Navy where we all had money to burn...) who had a 67 with V8 and stick. If I could go back in time, I'd buy all those V8 cars that I got to drive those years, including the Shelby Mustang with dual quads - almost a...

    Congrats @Exploring XLT!! And @CarpeNoctem, those days of cheap and "legal" oil burners are gone for good, at least in this country. :)

    April EF Lottery

    I washed dishes, bussed tables and mopped floors (at $1.65/hour minimum wage) to earn the $70 to buy my first car - a 1963 Ford Fairlane station wagon. I was 18 and it was my freedom machine. I bought oil by the gallon ‘cos it burned it so fast, you could see the roadway through the rusted out...

    Qarter Glass - Where I buy ?

    I bought a quarter window (to replace one a vandal broke out) from one of the guys here who parts out Explorers, then took it to my window tint shop to have it tinted to match the rest of my car windows. Just make sure you are specific about which side, since they are different. For shipping, I...

    A4LD Automatic Transmission woes.

    Thanks, guys. I've copied this and put it in my "for when you have problems with your A4LD" file. I can probably borrow a roach clip from my next door neighbor to pull out the pin. :p

    Explorer 1994 Rhythmic knock at the front of the car

    I was having a loud tick tick tick sound from the front end of my "new" 93 X, would get faster as I would accelerate. After fearing the worst, it turned out that it was missing the anti-rattle springs from the front caliper, the pads were rattling from vibration. New anti-rattle springs, sound gone.

    First gen Brush Guard

    The Westin one is the type I'm looking for, since I've got one of those Warn winches on a mount that plugs into a receiver (my van has front and rear receivers, soon my "new" green X will as well). That's why I didn't buy the Warn combo guard/winch mount that Brian1 had. Good idea Stic-o about...

    That was just a joke, since I knew your previous X was a Sport! :)

    Recommend stock AT tires (Michelin discontinued)

    I decided on the Cooper Discoverer AT3 4S 235/75/15 109T tires. They have the “mountain snowflake” on the sidewall (better in snow). They come in two load ranges: 105T and 109T. I got the higher load range for increased sidewall stiffness. I’m running them at 40 psi front and rear. They are...

    DEC EF Lottery

    Explorer Christmas Story In 1999, my wife and I decided to spend our first Christmas together with her mother in Custer, WA (just south of the Canadian border). We took my 93 red Explorer, loaded with “stuff,” a rooftop box, her food-and-swimming obsessive Black Lab, and my “everything belongs...

    Nov EF Lottery

    Here's a photo I found of what I believe is the Dodge M-886 CUCV "cracker box" ambulance - probably the same type as the "flying" ambulance that almost killed me. Except mine was battleship gray. :) Not for consideration

    Recommend deep pan for A4LD?

    The PML pan does have baffles to limit sloshing.

    Recommend deep pan for A4LD?

    I think my Explorer would look at the "launching pad" and just refuse to go up it (like my dog would refuse to go outside if it was raining). :) It sounds like for my on/off-road adventures the PML deep pan would do just fine. Thanks a lot for your input! David

    Recommend deep pan for A4LD?

    That's a good point about the sump. I do drive on rocky/dirt mountain roads say max of 45 degrees (but infrequently). Is that what you mean by super steep?

    Recommend stock AT tires (Michelin discontinued)

    I belong to Sam's Club and they have good prices and warranty (but no General Tire or Yokohama Geolander), but I've discovered that searching new tires is a jungle - so many to choose from and so many varied reviews on the tire sites. :( Darn Michelin for discontinuing "my" tires. :angryfire...
