Sorry to hear that, hope the recovery is going well.

In true DIY fashion you should save the old one and rebuild it.

Going to close this thread out. Its been over three years since my knee replacement. Its fantastic! Don't fear replacement, but make sure you get a good physical therapist, and do EVERYTHING needed. I have 140+ range of motion, and I use it all every day.

I'm still behind on projects. But this one is complete. My son and I stripped this vehicle down and we used EVERYTHING in his 1990 Ranger. The Ranger previously had been a yard ornament for too long and has been a daily driver now for 18 months. Now that he is employed, the Ranger will become a desert toy.

This project is complete and finished, it was a great bit of education for myself. the body actually lives on as it was used to repair a rolled Explorer.

it was a pleasure to read your road traveled with the "Explorer". since life is over for it, now it can be called "Explored".
i was really surprised to read some of the comments that were made. i figured there would be a lot more support for the gestures that were made towards a young couple starting a life. hope they are still together. if the same would have been made towards me 32 years ago, i know the adjustment would have been easier and would have made a difference to me. good job!

Explored. I like that. And it does close that chapter. My wife and I both already had cars when we were married nearly 31 years ago, she had paid hers off, I was making payments. But a free, no-strings vehicle would have been very helpful. What I hadn't mentioned, and re-read the thread to see, the boy didn't marry the original girl, she flaked and ran away. But a year later, he married another girl. Now he is graduated and working in his field ( a rarity for college grads these days!), they bought a car, returning my Neon to me, and are looking at a vehicle when they pay the car off next year to replace the STILL running and driving fine Ranger aka, Explorer in Disguise. After nearly 40,000 miles, that transmission is still shifting good, though it needs to warm up a bit when really cold now.
