all depends on what you think. I have a 1997 5.0 awd and I love it!
BUT! I am always changing my trucks around.
SO! I have an axle out of a 1966-67 ford bronco that I have regear and put disc brakes on and am getting ready to do a suspension lift and the straight axle conversion to
also just picked up a body lift for it too!
so if you like it as is you do have a nice ride if it is in good shape. a lot of the jeep guys would love to have your rear axle for their jeeps, the v-8's are sought after by anyone who needs one so all in all you have a nice ride if everything works well
The V8 Explorer is a good truck to have, an engine design that has been around for a long time, plenty aftermarket if you're into that and the transmission is considerably stronger than the 4R55E/5R55E that come behind the V6.
:thumbdwn:The truck is just awful so drop it off in my driveway with the keys and title and never look back.
I had a '98 5.0 XLT AWD and when it was time to replace it because I needed more seating there was nothing about it that told me I should not buy another Explorer. On a private sale I even got full Kelly Blue Book price for it.
