Well its been a while since I posted here in this thread, the eXploder is still doing great, still on the road and sometimes trails, havnt ran into any major problems with it, still takin her on long trips....
I built another toy that is used more for the woods tho, a 94 tRacker, toyota axles front and rear, both locked, 5.29 gears, 4.26:1 t-case gears, 12" extended wheelbase, 33's (35's by the end of this week) warn 9500hs winch.... this truck is one of the best crawlers Ive built, it just goes.... and goes.... its light (bout 2200lbs), tiny (with 12" extended wheelbase), and great flex..... check it out at http://www.offroadnuts.com check out the video and picture sections.
That's awsome. What length WB do you have now with the 12" ext. Great picx and vids
wow nice trucks and website, been a while since we saw you on here.
Can you tow the geo with the expo?
Thanx..... could tow it, but havent had the need to as of yet, I live next to the biggest offroad park in the east and theres other wheelin all around this area that I can just drive to.
the wheelbase is at about 99" right now.
Its definately a nice rig, too bad you don't let John (earthquake69) drive it as much. Then again he needs more practice in something with training wheels before driving that thing full time. Then again maybe thats why he is now driving that Cherokee
yeah I wanna keep the lil beast in one piece, heres a pic of john/marcy/earthquake... or whatever ya wanna call him, in his trail rig... ya know, he has more names that I do the quality aint that good as I took it with my phone cam.....
Hey skunk, what kind of leafs are you using ?
waggy 7? leaf
if you don't mind me asking, what was the cost involved in the sas? not including things like lockers, tires, and other stuff, just the parts to go sas. if i can afford it, i think i'm going to copy your design here. looks great!
I see dumbass never updated this thread over the years... *sigh*.
Some random pics of the old girl:
Aww, she was so little!
Skunk was the one to transport him to his funeral, too... although we couldn't resist one last prank
She stalled in front of the funeral home-- no power whatsoever, total blackout. It took some coaxing but once I put Chris's ashes on the passenger seat we were able to get her started and drive back home... where she promptly shut off as soon as she got back into the garage, next to Blackjack. Every attempt to get her running again has ended in failure; she even boiled the water out of the battery just to make sure I couldn't charge it
Both of us have always maintained that our trucks have a soul of sorts. People laugh and brush off our theory as total nonsense. All I know is Blackjack saved my life at the cost of his own, and Skunk simply will not function without Chris. Take what you will from that, but treat your Explorers well.
Nice pics Linds! Thanks for the update.
Could anyone repost pictures? Photobucket really stinks!
