2001 Ford Explorer XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

This is the 1st 4x4 I've owned, and so far it's been 100% reliable.. no rattles, squeaks etc from it. I've had it on a few off road excursions, ranging from graded gravel roads, to gooey mud.. The stock tires leave a little to be desired in the mud, but were still able to get me through a mudhole that covered the hood with mud/water. I do wish that Ford had installed a torsen differential in the rearend on it, but since they didnt' I plan on installing a ARB air locker..

Favorite Features

the 9" of ground clearance is nice, and the 5 speed auto tranny works quite good

Suggested Improvements

torsen differential in the rearend
