2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT 4WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
My experience with Ford Sport Trac has been one of the best experiences I have had in my life. I drive it often, even on trips. I have had no problems other than normal maintenance. It is what I needed. Living in the country area I needed 4X4, wanted no carpet and be able to carry my grandkids. It does it all, and since I am retired I just have small jobs for the yard and such and the bed it just perfect, you don't have to worry about the bed scratches and the tie down would allow you to carry a lot more than you think. My wife loves it and has no problem getting to and back from work in the snow, and we can go out in the field with no problems.
4 door. 4X4. No carpet. Has all the comforts. Great reliability. Good gas mileage for a 4X4 and uses regular gas.
I replaced the shocks and tires. The original shocks and tires were not what I wanted in the ride. Now I have more comfort along with no loss of control or ability to get through snow or mud.
