Newbie first time in a Ford!
« on: October 12, 2019, 02:22:48 PM »
Picked up a 17 Explorer Sport with 11k miles a few weeks ago and Im liking it so far. Been a Chevy guy my whole life and this is my first ford product. Tried a Grand Cherokee Summit for a few years after selling my Trailblazer SS and the Jeep was a pos. After a few weeks with this Im already fighting the urge to mod it. Likely will have a tune and a cai before long and maybe some new wheels. I have an 800rwhp Camaro if I get to bored :-)

So far what Ive reads been mostly positive about these things. And I love the styling. I think I can be happy with some mild bolt ons and some wheels. Whats with the questions at the bottom and the code when I try to post?
