yeah i hear ya,i do 60+ hrs a week,and thats with 2 days off,i got rid of my explorer (stupid move )it needed too much work for me to do,the whole steering system went,and it wasnt running right after i replaced the fuel pump and filter,so i bought a 95 jeep just til i find another 1st gen explorer 4x4 4dr,gotta save up a little money though,i just got back from vacation last week,so in a few months ill have my next explorer

yea im looking to get rid of mine its starting to get annoying to work on it all the time so i might look into what jay did and get a focus hatch and maybe a little bit down the road find a jeep or something to wrench on on the side

jeeps are good,but id rather have an explorer,i got a 4 door cherokee,and my 4dr explorer had so much more room in it,only good thing about the jeeps,they all have solid axle's in the front,i have a dana 35 in the rear(thats the one they use in the fronts on the 1st gen explorers) and a dana 30 in the front,i just gotta get my floor fixed before i go,already quoted 125 to fix it

site x has some good trails,some of them are tight to fit down,nothing major at all,its a good time though..wharton has the really good trails,some nice mud holes that i even had water come over my hood when i had my explorer,my breathers are already extended,they were from the factory,one guy gave me a good idea though,he extended his to inside his truck so no water got in them,i might do that,my breathers are extended to my firewall,except the one for the rear
