Those air bladders they use to widen window frame gaps are scary. I watched a guy get into a Dodge Durango with one and I can’t imagine the door sealed the same afterward, but it sure was quick getting in.
It is scary but I think it depends on the tard in control of the bladder. Guy I had do it was very gentle and I noticed nothing regarding the sealing. * He gently jacked the door, not the window, then reached in with essentially a pro-grade coat-hanger.:p

The camera operator giggles like a chimpanzee sitting in Jello.
Off camera, my next door neighbor was standing in his driveway shaking his head, wondering why the fuck I'm out on a riding mower in March.

And I'm driving that thing, grinning my face off, "YEAH BUDDY GOT IT WORKING, I GOT A NEW TOY!"

Our years of Ford trucks (98 and similar, and I assume expedition, explorer, etc.) are stupid easy to get into if there's any juice in the battery.

The power lock button faces up so you just stick something in there and hit the "U" on the button.

The radio antenna off the same truck works great for that.

My second ex wife had a mid ‘80s Toyota pickup 4x4 and she came home from work one day and said the passenger door had a new rattle. I discovered that someone had punched in the lock, which was easy enough to replace.

Her stereo was still there, so I had her do a quick inventory and the only thing missing was her emergency tampon supply, which was located in the glove box next to $40 in a coin purse.

Someone was desperate for a tampon, I tell you what.

It seems that a lot of Land Roger styling has crept into Ford’s designs in recent years. The Explorers (not the current year though) had a lot of lines that were very similar. The Sport^ does too. IMO of course.

Body shape is a little bit reminiscent of the early bronco or IH scout. That's a good thing.

It's not a real Range Rover impersonator until it's got a blown air strut making it do the gangsta lean.

Of course she got a Camry.

It's the most boring car on the planet, usually driven by the most boring people on the planet. Cops aren't even going to notice it. Which makes it a fabulous drug smuggling car.
