Do you have to give them the money from your truck? A free upgrade to an explorer limited? I'd do it! My girlfriend always complains that my truck has no backseat, she'd be very pleased

I wouldn't trade my truck for it but I would trade yours for it. I know how rough a reg cab is and I take it the explorer is a 4x4. Or trade it in for a newer ranger with 4wd and an extended cab.

do it, my mom has the same kind of explorer, they have a smooth ride, and the 4x4 is nice, leather and everything is just like my moms, the 4.0 aint bad either she gets good gas mileage, they aren't as fast as the rangers though even though its the same engine.

I would do it, but not with my truck though. They are nice but if you ever wanted to lift one you are out of luck with the half shafts in the rear going through the frame. I have a 03 expedition actuallly the little women does and it is a life saver some times, when I go hunting in south dakota I take that. it is really capable off-road and it can haul me, two guys and two dogs and all our gear. But I don't even have the option of lifting it (not that I ever would but I just like knowing I could)

go for it. Even if its the v6, its still a damn nice truck. Plus (especially compared to your regular cab) you would be gaining so much room. Oh and the leather and all the options... mmm nice
