'96 Aerostar 172,000
'97 Mountaineer 198000
'02 Sport Trac 72,350
'94 Explorer, semi-retired, Odometer reads 22,000, but it's probably 222,000 - actually more like 230,000 because I changed speedos a few years back
My neighbor comes by the other day. I'm charging the AC after replacing the compressor, receiver/drier and orifice tube. He asks how old is this truck? I say it will be 21 years next month. He says it looks brand new under the hood. I'm thinking "yes it does!"
This is the first car I ever bought brand new. The second and last car I bought new was a Durango in 2002. I still have it at 150,000 miles. I'm thinking the Ex will be in my family much longer than the Durango.
I have about 184900 on her and this bitchy beast will carry me home soon for a round trip of 1700 miles. I wont rest until I have to rebuild her from scratch. the way I am going I may need only a frame and cab. I spend more on this truck than I have on most relationships.
I just bought an '03 Explorer XLT 4x4 back in October and it had 320,2xx miles on it then. I've racked up an additional ~1300 or so since I had it. So now I've got about 321,500 on it.
Its just my second vehicle so it probably won't see as much action as my '03 Mustang GT (which I bought new and now has 166K on the clock). This truck will serve me well for the winter should things get nasty around here this year again. We had a few snowstorms last winter and the Mustang had a difficult time...it made it through, but it wasn't easy. It's also going to be a hauler and a road-tripper. The Mustang still runs strong, but as I'm getting older, it's not as comfortable for taking those long trips anymore. It's still a fun toy though.
Just got a 98 Explorer EB 5.0 with AWD that has a little over 375k on it for a project vehicle.
Likely to use as a trail rig.
Wouldn't turn over when I got it, due to a bad neg cable from the battery. Has a rough idle, that seems to be from a vacuum leak and/or disconnected EGR. Other than that, in pretty decent shape..
