Take a look. Just got her today. I need to do some major washing waxing and vacuming but here are the pics as of now.

It'* suprisingly a kick to drive with the manual. Kinda spunky.

I'll have more pics later once I clean it up.

Right on form - no spoiler







... though i'd be afraid to see a spoiler of any significant size on an Explorer

Why did you choose an explorer for a daily driver?

Looks good! Five Speed 4WD....94'? Dont see too many explorers in manuals, I heard they are pretty good for towing for that size of vehicle.

It was my aunts since new in 1996. My family has had great luck with 4.0L V6. I got a great deal and it takes regular fuel. Plus it'* got 4 wheel drive.
