Ford's 2002 Explorer concept
"The Urban Explorer"

I really like the styling of this Explorer. Hopefully Ford will come out with a truck that's very similar to this or the aftermarket will provide us with the accessories needed to bring a stock Explorer up to this level of appearance and functionality.

The Line-X Explorer features a Line-X coated bed and a Superlift Suspension System.

Off Road Unlimited's 2001 Sport Trac

This truck won "Best of Show"

Could it have been the PIAA lights that swayed the judges?? The Superlift suspension definitely helps.
