Walk into the dealer with 12k cash and drive out.
you have to drill holes in the top of your roof around 6 of them if not more.. that means leaks rust leaks rust leaks rust in the long run... then there is the repair bill to get the roof fixed...

This type of cluster was available in 2003 only and it was XLT only. All 03 XLTs got it, regardless of whether the truck was an XLT, XLT Value Package, FX4 O/R or FX4 LII. It is silver (titanium in Fordspeak) unlike the the white ones that came in Explorer Sports and Sport Tracs.

The one in my avatar is identical but the flash makes it appear white.

The problem with it being an '05 is no PATS (still scratching my head on that one, Ford). And the listing doesn't indicate whether the "6 Cylinder Gasoline" engine is the SOHC (which would be my preference) or the vulcan.

^^^FX4's only come with the 4.0

I like that black one as well, but I am worried about buying a vehicle from a mom and pop dealer...

You know, I honestly didn't know that.

Seems pretty obvious though now that I think about it...
