Last winter I couldn't get out of my drive in my 2wd Explorer so I went in search of a replacement. I ended up with an '07 SE 4wd. After about 7 months and 15500 miles of use, I'm still very pleased with my purchase. I live on unimproved dirt roads that get severely rutted during heavy rains. The 4wd has came in handy numerous times, along with the other off-road capabilities.
The aux input for the Rockford Fosgate system is great for use with my iPod.
The SE does not come with a gas tank skid. A cheap addition that should be included. I've also changed out the rear bump stops, as the hard rubber ones that are standard provide a hard bump when hitting deep holes or ruts.
