Acutally he brought up the gas mileage. "I bet it gets like 12mpg!".


Still can't believe he straight up asked how much I paid for it.

I got one for you. When I first pulled up to work in the new jeep one of my coworkers wanted to know how much I make to be able to afford an SRT

Re: Had an encounter with an Explorer Sport

People don't believe it's a Jeep & ask if I did all of "that" to it..i.e. body kit, etc. I said it came like that & they are like "say whatttttt?!?!"

The ML is the GLE. There is no coupe version of a GL. It's a coupe version of the GLE in this video (which use to be ML).

I always liked my Lincoln Aviator.... It was very hard to give it up, although I haven't looked back.

Funny, I came from an Aviator too. I found it to handle better in the snow than the Jeep.

Re: Had an encounter with an Explorer Sport

I agree 100 percent. The aviator was a monster in snow. This truck is actually pretty terrible on a snowy highway....

Try Blizzaks! Different animal. I think too that aviators were like 225 tread width and you will find 295's to be much worse in snow.
