    Picked up a clean '97 Sport

    So since it’s been a year, figure I’d give a little update on the ’97. Been running awesome, Girlfriend still drives it. She won’t give it up, absolutety loves it! The only way I’m gonna get it back is if I buy her something new! So more rust proofing, had it sprayed with Rustkote. Pretty nice...

    Picked up a clean '97 Sport

    So it’s been a bit since I visited an updated my thread. After the body work I knew it was time to Bullet…er uh Rust Proof the old girl for snow duty. It brings a tear to my eye to drive this thing in the slop and luckily it’s been a mild winter. Also, this has been a second vehicle too so it...

    Auto down window not stopping...?

    Hey guys, Quick question.... My '97 sport driver's side window has the auto down (or one touch down, whatever its called) and when you hit it it goes all the way down and does not stop until it is fully down even if you hit the up switch. Usually when it's on it way down it will stop where...

    Picked up a clean '97 Sport

    All fixed, but I need two trim pieces if you guys can keep an eye out for me I’d appreciate it. I think I have the rarest interior color ever made though! Maybe a black scuff plate would work. Not sure about that lower door molding… The ones on this truck are basically flawless… so pissed! Lol...

    DRL an interior light Electrical gremlins on my Sport trac...

    Was the bulb. Only thing left is the dimmer roller swithc, I'm sure everyone knows how to change that. Thread can be deleted to save space if need be.

    Picked up a clean '97 Sport

    Ok, Been playing with the new Sport trac so I’ve been neglecting you guys here. Body work and paint is all done, picking it up this week when I get a chance and I’ll post pics. Now I have way too much money into this thing to ever get out of it so I’m keeping it forever! Anyway, a few weeks...

    DRL an interior light Electrical gremlins on my Sport trac...

    ^thank you. ...but after further review I realized that I am a dumb f!!! ....I happened to notice the little switch on my rearview that says autolamp.... ! And I actually took the effort to open up my rear light and see that the bulb appears to be bad. I'll stop at O-zone and grab one...

    DRL an interior light Electrical gremlins on my Sport trac...

    New to me vehicle blues…. Few Questions about Electrical gremlins on my Sport trac. The headlights are not auto on but they do come on whenever the vehicle is started… even if the switch is off, so I’m assuming they are daytime running lights. But if they are DRL’s, in the manual it says the...

    Okay, back to the trucks.... I still say it doesnt look that glossy! haha! Snap me a close up when you get a chance if you could. I guess I need to see it on a silver one.... Who's this "what's his name" from Indiana you speak of??!?!?

    Picked up a Clean '03 Sport Trac...

    My brother was a parts slinger, used to go from swap meet to swap meet back before ebay was around with a trailer of parts. I used to tag along with when I could 11 or 12 years old diggin through boxes of old ford parts. He was big on the first gen mustang stuff but had everything in his...

    Picked up a Clean '03 Sport Trac...

    429 –2 silver salvagers with 63k… Cool Coincidence! Hope it’s not a bad sign! Haha! Definetly not doing Gloss black! O1ST’s does not look that glossy. It’s more of the Matte look I was thinking of, kind like bedliner… but really didnt want to do that either… Whats with the 429cj? What do you...

    Picked up a Clean '03 Sport Trac...

    I Absolutely need to have that RLC bumper! I like the second truck down with the hoop up over the winch. Definetly may do that. Not too keen on cutting up the front fascia but oh well. Very true that we can get away with Body lifts on these trucks and not be gawdy like others… Not too worried...

    Picked up a Clean '03 Sport Trac...

    Well, Apparently I’ve caught something because I can’t stop buying Explorer’s now… Just picked up an ’03 Sport Trac with only 63K on it. Silver (did I mention I hate silver vehicles….) It’s very clean (not as clean as my green ’97) but clean for a northern vehicle. Apparently it’s from southern...

    Picked up a clean '97 Sport

    I havent had the heart to tell him yet... I will after it's all fixed. My body guy is one of the best around and everything will be done perfectly so I'm not worried. I've been over there several times and even though I dont do that work I know enough about it to help a bit and see whats going...

    Progressing nicely.... Still unbelievable how Clean this thing is. The body man is a friend of mine and his is still in awe. Says its a pleasure to work on them when they are this clean! haha! hopefully it'll be reflected in the price.

    Nah, No collision. It was a cash deal. Would've been to hard to insure it for what it was worth anyway. Now I gotta fix the fricken thing. The PO is gonna be sick when he see's it. I still talk to him every so often. I'm not showing him until it's fixed! Piss me off! She knows I'm not happy wit...

    Yeah, I'm checking local. Problem is everything is a rust bucket up here. From what I've gathered so far I think only sport doors will fit.

    Picked up a clean '97 Sport

    Wow! All your trucks are Clean! I like the 4-door. IMO they ride better than the sports. I bought a '99 sport brand new back then and I cant remeber how it rode but this one is real choppy. The wheel is very tight and it almost feels like it wants to wander around a bit. Tippy if I dare say it...

    Picked up a clean '97 Sport

    I'd do that if I could but it's real spongy. Every time I touch it, it just disintegrates even more! I can basically poke my finger through it. They'd have been better off making them out of osb plywood! I'll prolly just pull it off an make a new one.

    Back at the explorer game again after a few year hiatus. Picked up a ’97 …Clean! Beyond Clean! Showroom Clean! Got really lucky on this one. All the northern guys will know what I mean and know why I’m excited. Anyway, she’s low mileage – 88k only been through 1 Buffalo winter. Originally from...

    99 - Fuse #11 blown, no running lights, fogs, or dash lights

    Interesting read... Today, coming into work, lost all dash lights. Albeit, this is in my '96 ranger... well used ranger I might add... When I got out at the Post office, I noticed no taillights or running lights (parking lights). It was early enough that there wasn't many cars on the road, so I...

    Thanks guys and thanks for the link. I'm trying to figure out what speaker/amp I want to go with so I can build my box now. Theres tons of info online on how to do this so I'm not too worried. I'll make sure to take pics. What I was really looking for was suggestions for amp/woofer combo...

    Finally replacing my stock Subwoofer

    Finally decided to replace my stock sub woofer setup. I plan on making a custom enclosure with a 10" or 12" and trying to keep it in the same location. I know I might have to bump out the grille a bit but my truck is more or less a beater and I dont mind modifying the stock panels. I currently...
