      Could you supply the link to the Amazon page? This is EXACTLY what I'd like to do to my Explorer.

      So I did ALOT of mods since I posted last. I've added 32x11.5 inch Nitto Terra Grappler G2s, 18x9 inch Ballistic Jester wheels with a -12 offset, roof lights w/ RGB halos, 22" light bar, KKM Performance induction system, 2.5" lift/level by Supreme Suspensions and a Grillecraft mesh grille. It's been a been a long spring and summer for me. Next mods are BTF upper control arms, speakers and sub and exhaust.

      Here is my 2003 Ford Explorer V6 4WD with 170k miles , after three years with 3" body lift kit and 265/75R16 tires I had to rebuilt the whole front suspension:
      ( struts,lower control arms,upper control arms, sway bar links, wheel bearings, ball joints ), may be was because the suspension modification but finally done with, the pictures was taken last year because I was planning to sell it. If some is looking for something like this with new front suspension let me know $3,500 (sound system not include) , San Antonio tx

      Finally got around to installing my lift and getting the new m/t's mounted. If they look skinny, it's because they are lol (235/85r16) Next on the list: Rooftop hella 500's, lightbar on the bumper, and "fixing" my driver seat adjustment.

      Finally got my roof basket assembled and put on. It was super easy and only took about half an hour, it probably would’ve taken less time had it not been 1* outside.

      Thanks man. I'm running this 3" front/2" rear leveling kit. I like these spacers because they provide enough clearance to run my 265/75/17R tires on 17x9 Procomp Series 98 wheels, but unlike some of the taller spacers available they don't impact the angle of your upper control arms much. That means you can run the OEM UCAs instead of dropping $600 on a set of uniball ones from BTF. (Although if any serious wheeling is in your future, those are probably still a good idea. For the stuff I'm doing though I can do just fine without them.)

      why does everyone remove the factory cold air intake and turn it into a hot air intake with a filter that is no where near as good as a paper element ??? These engines do not breathe enough (especially with factory exhaust!) to be restricted by a paper element filter.....

      The K&N CAI for our Explorers comes with a heat shield that, when the hood is closed, actually seals it off from the engine bay. It was the first upgrade I did when I got my Explorer and I’ve had zero issues with it. Volant used to make a sealed high flow system back in the day with a high flow filter and a larger diameter tube that I heard was fantastic.

      Mine doesn't seal off that well, but it's only an issue when I'm stopped. I pull ambient temp + 5 degrees or so when I'm moving.

      Mine seals so fantastically that the entire top of the seal is red from paint rubbing off of my hood.
