[Napolean] Gah... Idiot....[/Napolean]
You never went in for that recall did you? Ford will remove the excessive door weights and install training wheels, this recall is listed for all Ford Explorers, Merc Mountaineers, and Ford BII's.

Hope this helps.

I think a round exo-skeleton made out of DOM tubing would cure the problem. When it rolls over (and they all do...right?), it would keep going and end up on its wheels again. There...problem solved. :D



Sorry. Goes back and hides again.

if U-Haul said that to me I would just tell them that I bet I could flip one of there stupid trucks over faster than my explorer.

Call them and ask them if they rent to aerostars, or any other older van, and if they do, ask them to quickly explain how an explorer is more roll-over prone than those huge ass box on wheels.

Hahahahaha, I've got that one on DVD and no one thinks it's funny but me. When I've backed into parking spots before and turned the wheel, I've often tipped it on 2 wheels but never completely flipped it. Thank god.
