We have a 2004 Ford Explorer with over 200,000 miles on it that my wife loves. Right before we moved down here it started to make a troublesome shimmy that made us wonder if it would make the entire 1,200 drive. Well it did, including the hills / mountains of western North Carolina.

This morning I took it off.
