2002 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Choice 4WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I bought my Sport Trac w/ 44k miles on it, outside of routine maintenance the only thing I've had to replace was a new hub due to off roading. The interior is very comfortable, great for commuting, camping, and overall driving. I live in Alaska and I haven't had a vehicle this reliable in the winter (started right up in -20 weather!) It has room for the kids, but extra hauling space in the bed, as well as great towing capacity for it's size. Excellent truck for family camping trips and small enough to take on most ATV trails provided there's not too much mud!
I love the sunroof, back window, and tonneau cover! Push button 4WD is great in winter, as well as ABS breaking!
The only thing I'd improve on this truck is the fuel economy, but then again it's worth the overall versatility of the truck. I'm planning on putting a 4in lift kit on it this summer and some bigger tires, which will decrease my gas mileage unfortunately
