2005 X5 3.0 Comfort Loaded 69K

I am a Colorado driver currently in a Lexus ES330. I am on the fence with a vehicle purchase tomorrow morning.

2005 X5 with 69,000 miles for $17,000
Loaded with every option
Previous owner documented every oil change and gas fill up.
Looking to buy from a dealer and get a Route 66 extended warranty 4 years 48K miles

***3.0 engine, panoramic moonroof, winter package with ski bag, etc

2010 Certified Ford Explorer XLT loaded with 69,000 miles for $17,500
Loaded with everything including hitch
Certified for 2 more years and 30000 more miles.

Anyone have feedback between these two models? I know... apples and oranges.

Am I an idiot for being on the fence with an '05 with 69K on it? Will it work well for me for skiing, biking etc? Some camping off minor dirt roads?

Please help as I am doing one of these tomorrow morning.

Do you want the cheaper to maintain? go ford.
