Default Explorer Jumping!

Well me and my dad went to pick up this Explorer for parts. But we couldn't just start ripping into it for parts before doing this. Just know, we got this thing for $200 with a bad trans. I was videoing and my dad was driving. Enjoy!

Nothing realy broke, just the trans linkages (I think) came out. My dad went to put it in reverse after coming back up and the shifter just moved like butter.

Thanks for the compliments, and the mullet is gone. Yeah as for the tools, my dad got me really hooked up with my tool box and almost all of the tools inside. Keep them comments comming!

ThanX,

Just remember - everyone watches YouTube. You never know if your dream woman saw that mullet and passed ya up?! LOL

You are a lucky one - great shop and cool @$$ dad to help ya out.



As for the exploder, that was well worth $200 IMO! I think I need a jump now. Oh I forgot I live in an apartment, damnit. Oh well, someday soon.
