      I have a 2000 Ford Explorer. I have made a custome long travel kit in the front.
      I like this thread because it will help me with my explorer engine problems I know I will have.
      I have had my truck for about 6 months.
      I live in Anaheim.

      THe front bumper is not finished yet.
      I hope to have my truck done and jumping by august of this year.
      up next is bump stops and new leafs for the rear.
      In the back all I have are shackles for a little lift.

      Saw the truck from a distance this weekend in pismo, i was camping with the rest of the dezert rangers group closer to the beach. It looked like the explorer handled really well.

      Have you needed to do anything to the rear quarter panel to fit your 33s at bump? I'm sure you have more bump travel than i do with my AAL, and i only have 32s and they are getting shredded by the sheet metal.
