    I've had my 96 Explorer for 6 years now. It's 2wd, v6, been a good reliable vehicle but I'd like something a bit nicer. 114k on it, and it's starting to nickel and dime me a bit but not much. I've liked it so much some of you might now I ran fordexplorer.net for years. Here's a pic:

    My father in law sells cars, and they've got a 99 Merc Mounty on the lot. 5.0, 88k, loaded. Figuring what I can get out of my X, the difference would be 2-2.5k in price.

    Opinions? Worth the trouble?

    For the most part, yes. I'm ok with that. Headlights, grille, bumper, tailgate, wheels, sunroof and loaded interior are the big differences.
