Was written 24/1/01 so would say yes.

I guess this is for the US only as my uncle has a 03 top of the line Explorer and it doesn’t have those pressure sensor thingos.

Himm… I guess people don’t know how to use a tyre pressure gauge anymore

“Ford had recommended that the Firestone Wilderness AT tyres on the Explorer be inflated to 26 pounds per square inch n part to improve the stability of the vehicle. ”> Hell I run mine Coopers at 42-44 most of the time on the Explorer I wouldn’t even contemplate driving at HWY speed at 26 PSI, nothing wrong with the handling at 42 either.
