Pros

Great reliable SUV< The 4 wheel drive works great just wish it wasnt automatic locking hubs. Very comfortable and durable interior. pretty cheap operating costs i'm getting about 18MPGs. Repair cost are very low.

Cons

Not the greatest handling thats to be expected for a 4x4 SUV. Automatic transmission would have rather had a 5speed.

A Very Useable 4wheel Drive — I actually have a had a couple of these Explorers like this and they are tanks I turned one into a monster 4x4 and thats all I did with it. This one however is the Eddie Bauer which has everything including moonroof and everything still works which is very surprising for a vehicle that is 24 years old. Im not really impressed with the powertrain I dont like the automatic tranny with the 4.0 it kills your power to the wheels. But overall a great truck would recommend to anyone.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

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

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

Cons

Old, slow

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

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
