Okay, since I've officially owned this 2003 for almost a month, it spent two weeks back at the dealer getting one of the front wheel bearings replaced (dealer paid the work). I have it for a short week before it goes to Denny's in Bristol for a transmission rebuild (again, thankfully the dealer is covering about 3/4 of the cost). So far my "new" used Ex has been parked in the shop more than it's been parked in my driveway. Thought I'd post up some photos so I remember what it looks like when it goes away again! On the bright side, I do love driving it. The 4.6 goes like stink! As soon as I fix the non-working heated drivers seat, I'll be even happier this winter.
Um, that's a definite maybe Andy. The Explorer is going into the transmission shop on Sat. 11/13. We may be heading up to see my parents in MA on either Sat or Sun so I can borrow my moms old Ex for a week. I'll keep you posted Andy.
