what to expect
Okay i knew this day was on its way. With the rising price of gas and lack of need for a 4x4 i have come to the realization that it is time that i think about trading out my current 2000 XLT 4.0 4x4.
Now I have been taking a hard look at the 1999-2000 2.5l 4-bangers. Now i know that there will be a dramatic difference in all aspects, hopefully milage being one the biggest. So i want to hear it blankly. What am i to expect? What do i need to look for...stayaway from? How about the 2.5 vs the 2.3 of later models? I hate to have to downsize like this but seeing as how i'm really needing to get rid of this gas hog...no matter how in love with it i am....it has to be done.
