Good Luck....

My Explorer is an 02 and I've never had a prob....(Hail Mary Full of Grace......)

(of course Jess will say I don't fish anymore...or take it on the beach.....but that's another story.....for another day......another LONG and Tiring day)

5 years of IBSP passes and I can only remember ONE TIME where I got worried....
with some sugar sand and......nothing happened.........I managed to do the right thing...... and make it back to the air station....


When I drink alcohol, I'm an alcoholic. I've switched to Fanta.....you guessed it....I'm FANTASTIC !!

Bob, that good to hear

Vin, I'll go with a roof rack until the smell of bait gets in the truck and wifey will insist I 'do something' so her truck doesnt smell like bait only then will she 'appreciate' the beauty of a cooler rack
Perhaps the greater hubris of man is that we can keep the status quo of Earth's environment, not that we can change it.

A live eel "lost" in the truck will achieve an instantaneous approval for a cooler rack. Especially if the wife is the one who finds it.

Oooo, a funny guy. I'm going to the dealer tomorrow for my new spare.

You'll enjoy the Explorer on the sand. I haven't had any trouble, other than that little key thing. I pulled right out of the ditch I was sitting in the next morning, no trouble at all. The only problem you may encounter is a bit of plowing with the air dam when you're in deep ruts. A careful eye and a well chosen path takes care of that 99% of the time.

I just installed the front receiver for a cooler rack and will be gearing up for a 5 day trip at the end of the week. I'll take some pics of the pimped out version of this sled and will post 'em up.

Take a kid fishing!
