IAmTodd's '00 XLT

The first ever:
Ford Explorer XRT V8 AWD

This is my 2000 Explorer XLT w/5.0L V8 and All Wheel Drive. My quest for this vehicle is to make it a better touring car. Designed for being comfortable, handle well, and to perform well.

XRT is just a trim level that I made up. It represents what I'm trying to achieve with my truck. It stands for nothing, just three simple letters standing for what I'm trying to do.

Current modifications include:

Engine/Transmission
MAC cold air intake
Two aux. transmission coolers
Aux. transmission filter
Transmission temp. gauge

Ford/Pioneer Premium receiver
USASpec iPod adapter

Bump for some updates. New front end, EE air dam, projector lights, HIDs.

With 98,500 miles I'm happy with the exterior. Adding anything else would put it way over the top. I hope to begin focusing on the performance now. It's lacking a bit in that area.
