2008 SportTrac
I’ve got a 2008 Explorer SportTrac with 128,000 miles. I love the vehicle; it’s very reliable and handy for hauling some people or for bringing home materials from the Home Depot, and I like driving it. The problem is the rocker panels are rusted out and the cab corners are rusting too. Body shop said it would be $5400 to take care of the rust. I was thinking I could drop $1000 into it, but not what he was talking about. The frame itself seems pretty solid. Any recommendations for a lower cost repair that would stop the rust and cover the bad places? Tired of leaving little piles of rust on the driveway.
