now by no means am i crowning ford king or anything just pointing out I like them, their looks and their performance.
My explorer i wasnt even that nice to it. I will say i did all the maintenance the book told me too. But i had it off roading, drove it through a creek quite a few times, blew out all four strusts /shocks jumping it lol and it still lasted this long.
I think most vehicles will except for the lemon here and there that come off the line at 4:50 on a friday just like everything else.
Do the recommend maintenance and it should be fine.
Pretty impressed that you off road your Explorer. Those things seem to be pretty capable off road.
I race Fords and have always owned them, I guess that is why I am partial to them.
some mud bogging and trails and created many of my own and theres this spring waterfall place lots of people go to but the only way to get there is hike, ATV or off road and it involves driving though a creek. and i did that quite a bit getting stuck a couple times but never stranded and the creek isnt supper deep maybe 2 feet max in the place we cross anyway
its the way i feel about the new escape. At first i was turned off by the nontruck look and crossover look but as soon as i drove one the turbo has so much balls for what type of vehicle it is. Supposedly the 0-60 is 6.3 and it has 270 torque and 240hp which isnt pony car or anything but in a crossover 2.0 that cant you cant beat it. I wouldnt be surprised it it does 6 flats on 97.
theres a green camero by me that i piss off often, now OF COURSE he beats me light to light and stuff like that but im just fast enough to piss him off and make him worry lol and on the highway if i can get to my governor speed first it give him problems lol
and yeah the raptor is awesome
I was actually upset they stop making the sportrac, a sportrac adrenalin with the 3.5 in it would have been my dream come true.
A sporttrac adremlin is what i would of got if they didnt stop making them.
