Try to find a late 90'* GM truck with the 5.7 Vortec. GREAT engine. Our 98 Yukon flat out HAULS on and off road. We took it out 4 wheeling on trails around Moab Utah, in SLT w/ offroad package configuration. 2 door or 4 door would fit the bill. Not so great on gas, but it'* better then expedition.

The full size GM variants are just too big for my wife to drive. She liked her truck (yes it is - soon to be was - her truck), but she has never liked the full size SUV.

I looked at the 98 GC Limited today and was NOT impressed. After I test drove it, I hopped into a '95 Chevy Blazer LS 4.3L 4x4 with over 140,000 miles on it. The thing drove like a champ. Which brings me to the topic of my new thread.

Wish me luck!

pathfinder or 4 runner. They are a little more but WAY more reliable it seems.

but remember

Explorer is the only SUV with a gyrosensor chip that detects vehicle instablity and keeps all 4 wheels on the ground

I know how to drive well enough that I don't need any sensors to keep all 4 wheels on the road. Why do you think that Ford put them in there? Because the Explorers are HORRIBLY top heavy.

Plus, I'm not going foreign and I'll never buy blue oval.
