I was looking through pictures and found this one. It can only be from 96-98. Oldest picture I could find of the Explorer. 4" Superrunner Superlift, 32" Geolander tires.

Last Truckhaven Run we did..

Sadly she's been collecting dust now. Has not started in months. 😢. Bad battery, needs a fuel pump possibly, and currently non-op tags.

I did order a new fuel filter for her a couple weeks ago, so there is hope.
 






This must have been a few months in maybe a year, I already had a push bar, some fog lights, my Yakima rack made it over from the old wrecked VW to the BII.......BFG AT tires, and hella lights folded back on the yakima rack, hood painted flat black... I was already in love with the little BII. This must have been 1997-98?
I got this truck from my dad for $500 after I wrecked my VW golf and needed something to get to work. At that time I hated the old Ford, wanted nothing to do with it. All it took was one weekend in the mountains camping and I was in love

And recently after the latest round of "mods"

Same side mirrors, same roof rack bases, same glass, otherwise......none of that is the same :)
 


















Sometimes I forget I have 2 Explorers, lol.


It gets worse the more you have...lol

So although it wasn't mine at the time....It was here and a part of the Forum. R.J. would know how old this image is.

Day or two after I bought it, just a little over 4 years ago... $200 rig with no clutch, no exhaust, locked up rear brakes

Many, many hours and thousands of dollars later it has taken me through a lot of CO, AZ, NM, UT, WY, and daily driven in SD.

Pics are from 2017-2020, I've had it since 2015, I don't seem to have any pictures of it from before I built the bumper, 2" lift, 31" tires, and a whole lot of roads... or where I think a road should be. 😉
 






The oldest I have is this one of my mom pregnant with me in early 1997

Get her fixed. I have witnessed this entire transition. Remember Shaver Lake 2004 (you really should not have been on that trail)?

I try not to think of it that way:oops:
Well how about this to not think about. Its entirely possible you were conceived in what is now your Explorer. Talk about a family legacy vehicle. I'm sorry dude, I couldn't help myself.

To think, I actually drove it from LA to Fresno, beat the crap out of it on the trail for 11+ hours. (That was a long day!) Then drove it back home, and then to work the next day. Need to do it again :p

I have even a older one. The trip I first met you and Sarah in Big Bear. This is also the trip I made my gas tank hold a gallon or two less:rolleyes:
