Greetings, all. Newbie here. I've searched the groups but can't find the
needed answers. Hoping someone here can point me in the right direction.
Got a 2001 Explorer Sport 4X4 with 50,000 miles on it and need to tow
a recently purchased boat (about 3,500 lbs for boat and trailer). I got
the boat home with my old mini-pickup but it's obvious that won't do the
trick for longer trips. This load is within the tow rating of the
Explorer and I've got a class III hitch and hope to install it this
weekend. Does anyone here have any practical experience towing with this
vehicle? Are there any additional upgrades or equipment I should look at?
Thanks in advance!
Thanks, BM. Recognize your sig from the Mustang NG!
Put it on the road this weekend and gotta say the Explorer Sport tows
that bigass boat and tandem trailer with no problem. Added Gabriel
Hijacker air shocks in addition to the hitch, and when spring rolls
around I'll add a tranny cooler.
Again, if anyone has practical experience (good OR bad) with specific
tranny coolers for this vehicle please let me know!
