I bought this as a temporary daily driver, and it's been great, but I ordered a new Ranger and don't need this anymore.

1997 Ford Explorer XL 2wd
4.0 OHV about 170k ish... (not exactly sure as the speedo didn't work when I got it, but fixed now)
Manual 5-Speed Trans
Manual windows, door locks, mirrors. Super bare bones truck
3.27 gears
A/C blows cold
Good tires
California Truck
Pioneer 7" Double Din Bluetooth stereo

Runs great, Newer Black paint, tons of new parts

Very Rare combo, but should last a really long time as there is nothing to brake on it.

Perfect for a sleeper, or a SAS 4x4 swap, to what ever you want since no trans computer to deal with, no PATS and much lighter weight.

Can be driven across country no problem. Asking $1800 .
