EXPLORER BECOMES EXPLORER
Al Maurine’s ’01 Ford Explorer was built with simplicity in mind— and not just because there were no aftermarket parts
Tori Tellem

So you bought a Ford Explorer for four-wheeling and Overlanding. Now you’re wondering, was that a really bad idea to decide to build one? Yes. Well, no. It’s not the vehicle that’s the problem here; it’s the lack of aftermarket parts, if you ask Al Maurine, whom we met on our 2019 Four Wheeler Overland Adventure. He’ll tell you, “Do not build a Ford Explorer! Actually, I’ve had this conversation with all three of my sons. It’s way easier to buy a newer vehicle that has aftermarket support.” And that’s precisely what makes his ’01 Explorer a solid example of customization by way of mother of invention.
