Sorry for cross posting, I didn't get anything on the 2006-2010 forum.
2008 Explorer XLT 4.0 V6 4x4, 100k miles.
So this is not new it's been an issue since I've owned the truck but it's not really bothered me because I don't push my 4.0 very hard. However, when I need to accelerate hard...
Have a buddy with a 580 credit score, no bankruptcy, foreclosure, or judgements. He was accepted at jeep for a lease on Cherokee but declined by ford for a lease on an explorer.
Does he have any options? Better to try another dealer or same restrictions?
Why would Chrysler be ok and not...
My current stable is now:
2016 Ford Explorer Sport AWD (3.5 Ecoboost)
2013 Fusion Titanium (2.0 Ecoboost)
2012 F150 FX4 Supercrew 4x4 Ecoboost
2008 Explorer 4x4
'16 X Mods:
22" wheels probably
OK just bought a 2016. I also have a 2008. Why did it take so long?
Well, my ONLY beef with the '16 is that it still has the crappy plastic all over the bottom of the car. I have seen some custom X's with painted trim. Did they paint or replace it?
I also have a '12 F150 4x4 Supercrew...
Ok it's bothering me. I've had led tails in every Ford I've owned for the last 5-10 years. Aftermarket often, but I had them. My last 2003 had them, but I can't find any for the 2006-2010 body style!
Anyone know how to retrofit these properly or know of someone making them?
High beams not working. 2008 explorer xlt 4x4
I have hid hi/LO kit as I've used in every ford with that setup. It worked for a few weeks and now when you hit brights the lights turn off rather than lift up (the kit has a magnet that lifts the lights up)
I told the shop that installed...
I sold my 2003 Explorer but the friend that bought it is interested in this. As you're aware, the XLT model and XLS model have a lot of gray plastic along doors, bottom of rear bumper and bottom of front bumper.
What would be the cheapest/best way to upgrade and paint this? I...
I have an intermittent issue with my explorer. Go figure, my mechanic cannot get the vehicle to reproduce my issue.
On occasion, you will get in vehicle, start it up like normal, and reach for the floor shifter (I think this is new for 2008, but not sure) and press the button on...

2008 Explorer XLT 4x4 - 80k miles
Seems to be intermittent and more often than not affected by going uphill? You can still hear the fans working but little to nothing comes out?
AC blows ice cold, I had it drained and re-charged professionally.
Any ideas? Doesn't sound like blend door...
I have owned this truck 3 weeks... I am pretty sure I have a disease.
Soon to be a divorce disease.. :D
I sold my 2003 Ex and bought this one:
2008 Explorer 4x4:
BEFORE (3 weeks ago...)
Other current Fords:
2013 Fusion Titanium:
2012 F150 FX4...
Three sets. Professionally painted. All lights are evenly tinted. No cracks, no chips, fully-functional. I even have bulbs if you need them.
* First fits a 2002-2005 4 door Explorer. They are medium/dark tinted. No problems whatsoever with light shining through. $100 firm.
*Another set for...
Is this possible? My truck is black. Very few light scratches near the top, I'd give the overall condition a 9-9.5 out of ten. I'll even throw in my tinted tail lights on the deal.
Seems they are the same size only the step side isn't as wide. Some people like the stepside, some don't...
I love my FORDS.
haha I finally got my daily driver pickup I've been looking for. Got it for a steal, kid had no idea what he had or how to maintain a vehicle. After 10 hours of working on it, and pissing more money away here it is:
2003 Ford Ranger Tremor (Edge sort of) Edition:
I just bought a 2003 Ford Ranger Edge Tremor edition 2wd with 130,000 miles.
It has some rust on the front bumper, where can I find a ford ranger edge bumper? any ideas?
Also, the fog lights don't work. Could they both just be out? I haven't checked fuse yet.
The door lock is wierd...
Ok, about 1:00 AM last night my car alarm went off. I looked out the window and saw nothing. I unlocked my vehicle and locked it again to clear the code. (I have a remote pager that pages me).
About an hour later just for giggles I made sure the truck was still locked. My battery was...
I am selling the truck, it's a 1992.
I jacked it from the big bracket that covers the tranny and goes accross the frame (almost in the middle, but lifted the front wheels for me).
Put new wheels/tires on, and now when I drive I get a loud "THUMP" when I drive it. It gets worse and more...
So 2 years ago, my truck KBB'd at 9500 with 90,000 miles.
Now, with 110,000 miles, it KBB's for over 11,000.
Probably about 1000 of that is premium wheel option and leather, but even a 500 increase, or maintaining value for 2 years... BEAT THAT TOYOTA or HONDA!!
(yes I know nobody...
