Anyway, I've been in a few. They seem like nice vehicles. Not actually a "truck" anymore like the previous generation if you are under any allusions as to that. Be warned that if you ever want to rent a U Haul to tow with it they may not rent to you because of the firestone tire/explorer rollover issues in the 90s. Not kidding.
Thanks Scotty. I don't care as much about a plug or patch as much as I care about knowing it's there. Just a peace of mind thing.
I knew they were no longer based on a truck platform- the only part of that I don't like is FWD.
If we need to tow, I still have my old reliable F150 and access to heavier trucks if needed. I remember those Firestone issues, my mother bought a brand new 2000 that came with Firestone Wilderness tires on it. It was a great rig until a 77 K5 Blazer met it head on in he highway and Mom was able to walk away from the accident.
