Just keeps running

1999 Ford Explorer XLS 4dr SUV 4WD
Purchased new and maintained. Kind of wish it would give me excuse to get rid of it, after almost nine years it would be nice to drive something different. It just keeps running and at this stage is not worth much as a trade in. It hauls construction materials, has pulled trailer, been in Northern Ontario and Quebec in the winter and is safe and reliable. I read about people with transmission issues and drive train issues but so far it's been bulletproof.
Good hauler on renovation projects and moving my kids out. Rides best when it has at least 1,000 pounds in it.
Lacks acceleration and it rides like the body on frame solid axle truck it is.
