like the title says, i just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. my name is anthony, and i own a 1997 explorer xlt with the 5.0 awd drivetrain. it is black with the tan leather interior, and except for some pro-comp a/t tires and a valley class III hitch, it is bone stock. i do all the maintenence myself, and it has around 130,000 miles on it. knock on wood i haven't had any problems with it aside from a leaky radiator (fixed - got a new one) and an alternator (fixed - got a reman one). i am sure you all know what the truck looks like, so i won't post any pics.
