    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.)

    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.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: fun, not to big

    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

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

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

    Cons: Old, slow

    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: More practical than a Wrangler and just as capable

    Cons: The head gaskets tend to blow due to restricted catalytic converters
