How rare are the 5MT 4Drs? I scored this 4.0 OHV last Summer with 89k miles and didn't want to let it go because it was in such great shape. Just wondering if they are unicorns because I haven't seen any others.

They are fairly uncommon.
 






I have one right now, but mine is manual everything. Roll up windows and all. ;)
 












I've seen a few but definitely not common. People are usually really surprised they even came with a stickshift.
 






They are fairly rare, used to be a ford technician and only saw a few over 7 years at the dealer. Started workin for Chrysler almost a year ago but still rockin my 96 XLT 4.0L M50d r1. 241,000 and runs like a champ!

Wow that's crazy! I've owned abou or eight different explorers and mountaineers including some two doors in there but I don't think I'm getting rid of this one.

Ya, the 4.0 OHV manual is a solid drivetrain. If you’re interested in performance parts for it check out moronav6racing.com. They specialize in ford engine parts. Hoping to build mine someday.
 






Good looking Ex!

Rarer are the SOHC M5OD 4x4 4 doors' especially since they were only available towards the end of the 2nd generation.
