The new Ex - photos - finally!

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.

Eddie Bauer it is, Zook. If I can just get the little issues straightened out, it will be a nice vehicle to drive! Thanks!

Thanks Andy! I figure that with only 48k on the clock, I can't go that wrong with it even if it's got a few initial issues. I like that 4.6, though!

mod motors are great. the worst problem i have had so far between the 3 4.6's and one v10 has been spark plugs blowing out, and that wont leave you stranded and its an easy fix. i love those engines.

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.
