Is that a 95 or 96? 94 was the old body style.

Those are good trucks. That pushrod 4.0 is a work horse.

How many miles on it?

A stick is rare in those things, good ride
Should have no troubles towing the boat now and a good hauler for the winter

Why does it seem like everyone is picking up daily-drivers?

Good pick John, I've seen some of those over 250K.

Cool, I didn't know there we any manual Explorers. One of my friends used to have a 98 or 99 with the 4.0 in it. I was a pretty decent car, it held up well. He got rid of it with about 130k on it and nothing wrong with it aside from a muffler that needed to be replaced. That motor felt like it really came alive about 4k if I remember correctly. Have fun with her.

Because we can't afford the gas/up keep on our beautiful Bonnies...

Nice John.... it'll be good in the winter... nice not to expose the Bonneville to all that snow ice and salt.
