Subject: Dallas/Ft. Worth Junkyards

I used to live in Ft. Worth and there is a string if junkyards south of
Ft. Worth. The guy that owns them has one for Ford products only (as well as
Chevy, Dodge, etc...). I don't remember the name of the road to take out of
town, hoever, they arein the phone book. Last time I went, I was looking for
a few parts for my 86 Ranger. The guys has a good selection of parts. The
major pieces are already off the vehicles. Give him a try.

There are no gloves, no under hood or glove lights with the '98 Explorer
Limited. Some other good things like "Puddle" lights, etc. Did get a
shart looking travel bag.
so far much better than the '94 Limited.

I do. '97 XLT.. (Currently a White "Ice Cream" truck, but cool side
graphics have just arrived...)

For your rear wiper problem on the '98, there was a discussion & some
solutions back on the usenet newgroup a month or 2 ago-

Go to & type in: rear wiper 98 & click Find.

That should bring up the related posts for you.

- -------------------------------
Not that I don't love hearing about Ford Rangers, but i was just wondering
anyone out there had an Explorer??
I also have a question, I have a '98 Sport, and the rear wiper constently
misses a large patch at the top of the windshield. Does anyone else have
problem? I would suspect it would only apply to the 1998's since they
redesigned the rear hatch and glass. I never had such a problem on my old
BroncoII, but it's rear window was flat, and this is curved.

Left the dealer at noon time today to start breaking it in. I forget who
emailed me about the tires, but you were right...the truck does need the 265s,
those 235s look kinda small. I thought it was supposed to have polished
5-spoke aluminum wheels, instead it came with chrome tri-spoke (Explorer-
style) ones. The salesperson says the 5-spokes aren't available yet...anyone
know if that's true?

Here's a free cosmetic mod for you fellow '98 owners: take some fine-grit
sandpaper and buff the tailpipe "tip" like you'd buff a shoe, since the
factory system is stainless it'll polish up nicely.
