The explorer weighs more than a mustange or ranger too. Im sure you can put one in there for fun and just to show all mechanical parts work, but imagine the praticality of actually using it to get around

I can see where your coming from, but tpa 2.5 or 2.3 explorer would be soooo slow lol. And even though a 2.3 mustange isnt fast, it can probaly get on the interstate within a day. But I get what your saying.
