Fordlover (Martin) from Spring, TX - 92 Explorer 2 door XL

Postby Fordlover » Wed Jun 14, 2006 9:02 pm

Well, I'll make this short and sweet, or at least short. *Edit* or not..

I live about 25 minutes north of Houston, I also have a vehicle sickness. I'm 25 years old and own 4 vehicles, and half adopted some others.

my off road toy is the 92 Explorer 2 door XL
It's got manual everything, tranny, transfer case, hubs, windows, locks, etc. etc. I've done a bit of work to it, including a 5.5 inch superrunner superlift, re-gear to 3.73, disc brake rear axle, Factory trac-lok rear, full locker in the front end, 2 inch reciever tow points front and rear, cone air filter about 4 feet from the ground, 33" super swampers (for play) or 31" cooper mud terrains (Street driving). It's also got power seats from a 97 Sport and a decent sound system with a small sub, along with a beartracker scanner.

Then, I got stupid and decided that I liked comfort, and the ability to pull a 7,000 lb. trailer (like I'll ever need to do that) So I went out and purchased a Demo (kinda new) Explorer.
It's got Leather, V8, 4x4, Advance Trac traction control, 3.73 gears and the heavy duty tow package and had just under 10K miles on it.
Image

The adopted car (moms garage queen) and I'm the only one that ever drives it. I figgured Stang girl would get a kick out of this. A 96 GT with the 4.6 liter, It's almost completely stock, 2.73 gears (yuck) were swapped for 3.27's. It's a 5 speed, and has cloth interior which seems to be pretty rare.
Image

My other rides are two 1992 Taurus SHO's. (all Yamaha engines hooked to 5 speed manuals, capable of 140+ MPH) but I'm trying to sell one, since having two is crazy.

And the girlfriends ride is a '04 Volvo S40 1.9turbo. and all I get to do on that one is the maintaince.

Wow it's like my whole life story in print, hope I didn't bore anyone to death.

Welcome to the board Martin! Hope to see you on the trails! (Mostly because that means I'll be on the trails too!)

Hey Martin,
Glad to see you got your profile up. :wink

That is a very beautiful Mustang.

So, when are you coming for a Demon get-together? :twisted:

Thanks for the gentile encouragement, just what I needed to get some pictures up and type a bit.

I really want to come to a GTG. I own two 4x4's and I rarely ever get to wheel anymore, and that's a shame. My 92 is pretty capable, and I could definitely use the practice to become a more skillful off road driver, just ask John. I would also not mind finding out what my 02 is capable of on a very mild trail one day, perhaps I should just take it to the beach.

welcome, nice lil set of rides you've got there

i've got/had the mass vehicle complex as do most people on this board, at one point last yr i owned 5, but went down to just 3 shortly there after, hopefully i can have it down to 2 sometime here in the near future, but then i'm sure i'll end up buying another one, lol

i could use something like that nice lil drop top stang to get around town, haha

newayz, hope to get to meet you sometime soon on the trails or just at a BBQ, which are a blast
2009 is here, Take charge, take risks, take responsibility.

Martin, good to see your up and running around. I recently aquired another ford as well....bought a 04 Mustang Gt :) Ofcourse we got rid of the F150 and my wife now drives a new Jeep Liberty, but I've still got the good ole Sport Trac.
