Don't see a lot of the SLX models. I've had mine for 14 years. After 283+ thousand miles it's currently in my shop waiting on a transmission rebuild.

O:) The SLX is the premium model with power everything. I'm in the process of making a work van out of an SLE originally configured for passengers; have some internal adjustments to make in the sliding sidegate (power door lock motor is mis-timed) and two external release handles to replace, but I can work with the manual seats. Too bad ADRIAN STEEL® never made a Model 4422 welded shelf unit; would've fit perfectly betwichst the second-row seatbelt retractor and the jack compartment. (I'm transferring one 4442 from a just-retired Ford® E-250 with an unsmoggable engine at 515,xxx gross miles; also looking at retrofitting a captain's chair in the second row, in case I need carry a third crewmember for work.)
