First I want to say this car needs new cat and or a new muffler too because rust got to the old one and it’s loud as fuck now. Not the manifolds though
2000 Ford Explorer Sport AWD 4.0L SOHC. Automatic transmission
240k miles on the body, I replaced the engine with one I bought with 101k miles I bought locally from a salvage yard. It came out of a rear ended 2000 XLT. That was about 18k miles ago. Still runs great but not now because one or both cats are clogged so it’s loud. It has rust, has some inside issues I will list but nothing mechanical at all besides the exhaust. I have had this car since about 2008 or 2009. I love it but I needed something with 4 doors for my children.
What’s not working
-A few gauge back light bulbs are burned out
-the head liner and parts of the inside are burnt and the car was smoked in but not heavily, just wrecklessly.
-the dash is cracked in a few places
-the front bumper is bent from hitting a deer
-the headlight is also kinda loose from the same deer. Not broken or cracked at all and works as it should
– the plastic covering the gauge cluster is cracked slightly
-the gauge cluster has moved and now instead of it showing the needle on D, it shows it on 3. But this is not digital, it just slid over. All gears work flawlessly
– I replaced the rear hatch with the same year/color but from an XLT..so it says XLT instead of sport on the hatch
-body has some dings and dents
-power locks don’t work
– The automatic transmission and transfer case shift smooth in AWD, 4 high, and 4 low
– the tires are less then 500 miles old (265 75 16’s…the largest that will fit with no rubbing)
-front and rear brakes are new (under 2000 miles)
-the engine is in good shape despite almost 130k it runs quiet with no knocks
-it has professionally done window tint but the tint on the rear hatch doesn’t look very good from tools hitting it. 5%rear and 35% on the front
-comes with 5 extra tires with 50% tread or more
-heated garage kept the whole time I’ve owned it up until 2 months ago
This car is far from perfect but it will get you from A to B with a new cat and muffler, even in 12 inches of snow. I drive it monthly on 600 mile trips and would feel confident doing the same trip with a heavy trailer. This truck has never left me walking in all the years I have owned it.
Text me or call if you prefer
but please no calls after 5pm or before 6am

No accidents besides the deer I hit and that didn’t blow the airbags or do anything besides dent the bumper and loosen the head light, I’m the 2nd owner.
All the pics are from the last two months.
