Pros

Cheap, plentiful, easy to repair if repairs are ever needed (they aren't)

Cons

Old, slow

145

1991 Exploder — Lots of space Decent mileage for a damn near 20 year old truck A bit slow, but that's compared to brand new cars Sorta ugly, but that's compared to new cars- and is subject to opinion. SOme people like the utilitarian look... Is an unstoppable force of nature Can't beat the price

Pros

original owner, 1st got it-could do burnouts+fishtail,  still pull a house in 1st gear.
with frame mounted tlr hitch(fac),  aftermarket air shocks, tranny cooler, 4wd hub assys on front(fac was plastic) sleeper torque converter, replaced planetary gears-rear chunk.
i hurt anybodys feeling at the red lite, with or w/o a load. many a bro in their pimpmoble turned white in my rear view mirror.

Cons

rear main seal blowouts were almost like birthdays. leather seats not for diehard roughians. front mid armrest nightmare

Rugged — it was a early ford (fix or repair daily) SUV. the front rad arms kept wearing too soon, esp the dr side. dont get leather unless your a showoff. ziebart it ASAP. original owner. with my attention to detail it graduated from FixOrRepairDaily, to FavoirteOnRaceDay. if you have one and got any questions holler i miss the heck out of it. if i could get my hands on one know, i wouldnt let it go.

Ford Explorer — I love my truck its a 1991 so its old as hell it has 200+ thousand miles on it and iv never had a day where she wont start. I take it offroading all the time i tear my way through the woods with that explorer and its bone stock. The 4.0 v6 is totally factory and the suspention has not been messed with (yet)

Love It Its The Second One I Have Owned — great truck built great strong running 4.0 v6. with stock tires this thing flew eveyone is surprised how quick it is and have done over 110 in it. this thing is a blast off road and has more potential with a lift and lockers and is a big off road following with these babies. it was the best 200 bucks i have ever spent

Pros

More practical than a Wrangler and just as capable

Cons

The head gaskets tend to blow due to restricted catalytic converters

Solid Vehicle. — The Shifter feels cheasy and the interior lights can not be turned off when the doors are open. Solid drive train 4.0L V6 manual transfer case and a locking rear differential dressed up with a chrome cover. Supprisingly quick vehicle for a V6 SUV.

My 1991 Ford Explorer — its got good acceleration, handles all right, brakes need some work, needs paint job and few new interior panals, good gas mileage somewhere around 16 mpg.it will peel tires if u stomp on the gas, digs nice holes off road.its a ford so its easy maintence and very reliable
