That thing looks great, Stic! A world of difference from your old Explorers, huh?

It's definitely more minivanish then I thought. But it's a nice truck.

Nice Explorers you have there. I bet you get a lot of comments on your Jurassic Park paint job.

So back in April we had a wind storm, throw a Gazebo into the front of this. Minor damage, mostly a dented up hood, mirror, and the A-pillar plastic. Took it over to get fixed today finally, and check engine started blinking, and it running rough. OBD2 is telling me it ate an injector possiblly :( So over to Ford it will go once the body shop is done. Luckily it's still under the power train warranty.

At least the CEL didn't start blinking on the way home from the shop. ;)

Yeah, that's not happening.... Wife's already eyeing the Jag F-Pace, and I told her let's wait and see what the the Mach E looks like. She really wants to go Electric next, and for her commute it probably make sense. We'll see:rolleyes:

Ugh... Stereo is going nutty in this now crashing and saying application error.

Maybe it's time to upgrade to SYNC3 or install a phoenix.

I watched a couple videos on YouTube about upgrading from SYNC2 to SYNC3. Looks like most vehicles you only have to change out the USB port... except the F250! Is the Explorer just as easy? I'd really like CarPlay but I guess its not in the cards.

For Apple, yes you have to swap out the USB. For Android you don't.

I really love Android Auto, I use it every day in the Ranger

Well out with the old and in with the new. I have to fix a few things on this and then I'll put her up for sale. She's been a good truck.

Picked up something new tonight... '19 Jaguar F-Pace.
