    Vibration/slow WOT full throttle, jolt

    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...

    Plastic fender trim... how do we paint/replace?

    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...

    LED tails for 2008 X -where/how?

    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? Thanks!

    2008 Stuck in Park intermittently, shifter problem

    Hey all, 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...

    Who wants to trade beds? Black stepside for regular bed

    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...
