A guy I kno in town offered to trade his 96 ford explorer w/ 121k miles v8 bone stock in good shape for my raptor. I could use another vehicle but I'm not so desperate to give it away for somethin of lesser value. Cosidering my mods and mine being 7 years newer even though it's a atv to suv who gets the upper hand on this deal?

Yeah it looks really clean in the pic but damn I'm 22 and would have never seen myself sportin an explorer but a second car would b damn nice specially keep miles off my truck. But the kbb says in excellent shape it's private sale value is 2100 I'd like to think my bike is worth more than that :unsure:

I own an exploder and I would stay run as far away from this vehicle as you can I wouldn't trade a pedal bike for anOther one of these trucks I have owned mine for 2 years and driven it like 6 times and it is nothing but a money pit not to put down his truck but from personal experience stay far away!

My dad owned an eddie bauer how ever u spell it and he really hated it but he's not a ford guy jus got it for a great deal. I will say they do ride like s*** but again it'd b a to and from work vehicle so it doesn't have to ride like a caddy.

Mine has cold air intake, headers, high flow cats, and a tune. it's pretty quick for a 7k pound truck, will have a nitrous set up by tax time which will b a whole nother level of fun!!!:)
