oh ok... its still unsafe to have a car seat in the front... air bags and stuff like that. the explorer (or what about an Escape??) sounds like a good option.

Air bags can be shut off on the pass. side of the truck, which is where I am assuming the child seat goes. Which would intern cause his wife to have to ride in the back...

Once the kids come along my wife want to get a Mariner the Mercury version of the escape. And once that happens I get her car and the truck becomes an OFF ROAD TOY.

rangers have a airbag turnoff if you run a carseat up front, its the only place to run it on most trucks

Congrats on the new ride. I just bought a 04 explorer today as well. The kids were outgrowing the ranger and the mustang, both of which we kept.

Enjoy the new ride.

Congrats on the new ride, you'll love it. My parents have owned a '97, '00, '03 Explorers and loved them all and my Dad just bought an '07 Sport Trac and loves it. I like them all too.
