I need some help /o/, ive been working my next car purchase down for a good few months now and ive come down to two options at a relitave tie.
>1&2nd gen Ford explorer

>Post '96 subaru wagon
(preferably an outback sport or outback, but a legacy would work too)

Ferd is worse on gas, but has more ride hieth, is frame on body, and rwd/4wd instead of awd
They both have cargo space in spades, which I need
Both can tackle weather and trail riding
Both are somewhat comfortable for thier class.

Ive driven both and like both, though they do drive much diffrently.
Does /o/ have any opinions on these rigs? Im having a hard time deciding between the two.

Das bampu
I will say the explorer seats not having headrests bothered me a little, as im tall.
But my computer chair dosent either, and im okay here, so I think its a matter of getting used to it.

I live down a 3 mile dort road that goes up and down multiple rocky hills

Does the explorer rollover as easy as people say it does?
Also im figuring maintenance on the explorer will probabaly be easier due to no boxer engine?

Whats the explorers aftermarket like?
I know subarus is strong, but I wonder about the ford.

is it really a car from the roadkill show or is it just a sticker?

Pretty sure thats just a sticker
Its a really cool idea though, they have abs and everything
Its just the older body on a vic frame.

Explorers love to eat transmission after 200K miles,but get the V8.Pretty sure it can be modded to make a lot more power.

Aftermarket may be good for the V8,given it's a common engine and all.

Is that the same motor that they used in the mustang? Or did they use a diffrent one (5 0 right?)

I think it is..if so then you can make it go fast but do get a manual,not the automatic.Could really make it into a serious sleeper if you wanted.

I had a manual sport before
My only gripes were that the stick would hit cups in the cup holder, and foot parking break.
Ofc it will all depend on whats around, I think if I was fonna go for a v8 id be really tempted to get a mercury mountaineer at that point.
Is there somthing wrong with the autos? Im curious. Its the 700r4, right?

Autos love to kill themselves/shit the bed.First,you'll lose 3rd or 4th,then reverse...this is what happened to my parent's '97 Explorer and it had a damn sight near 250K on it.

You buy it from the STI catalog. It all bolts on. It even somehow makes a Forester look good.

Thanks for the info anon, ill look into that.
Do you know anything about the diffs?
Open/ limited slip/ lockers?

>>13342304
Would theese parts fit onto an outback or legacy as well?

diffs..hmm not a serious offroader guy but given it's based on a Ranger it could be a good idea to upgrade it.Explorer=Ranger with a permanent roof and maybe a set of back doors.

I don't know that there was ever a body kit for those models. You could probably adapt Forester parts, but that's a lot of money for rare parts you're just going to hack up.

Do you happen to know if there are any explorer seats with headrests?

No,but if there's a will there is always a way.Just look or modify them yourself.

get the subaru outback wagon. it will never die. Just dont beat on it too much (rev limiter is a no)

As in it has no rev limiter, or dont go near it?

i meant do no hit the rev limiter. These '96 outback are starting to rust a lot so watch out for that. even a guy in my neibourhood has a 2011 impreza with a rusted trunk

essentially almost all subaru stuff is swappable like legos. Different engines and subframes all share the same mounting locations. Its kind of just plug and play with subaru for the most part. Suspension follows the same train of thought. I am not a Subaru guru so I can't say for certain but that's what I have read at least.

Well alright then
Anything to say about the boxer motors in the outback/ Forrester?

>>
Anonymous 2015-08-30 21:06:00 No.13342665
>>13342635
Um. They're boxers. They're like a normal engine but split in half and folded 180.

To be quite honest, an engine is only is good as it's maintainer. Oil changes all the time and premium go a long way to making an engine last. Also let an engine warm up before using it, especially in the winter.

Other than that I can't think of anything.
