P.S Learn how to quote properly
My phone is being less than cooperative when it comes to typing stuff correctly lol your build is still going to be sick.

Damn!! Those are big meats! How much trimming required? 35's?
^ Yes 35's. Much trimming/cutting of the bumper and fender. The rear is untouched.
running wheel spacers? do you have a link for your setup/install for Torsen Diffs, 4.56 gears?
What kind of fuel economy do you get now?
No spacers needed. I don't have a link sadly. But if you are only semi mechanical I'd have a professional shop do it. Gears must be dead perfect.
Up by 6 mpg.
Nah haha. It's not much worse then stock believe it or not thanks to 4.56s. But I really don't pay any attention to it anyways. It's a joke either way. I have my TDI for my daily which gets me 50+ mpg's highway
Haha! When I went from the stock 235/70-16 size tire to 255/70-16 I lost about 3 MPG (18.5 average to 15.5), but I of course kept the stock gearing which is imaginably why it went down so much. I just hate that Ford went with such small tires stock.
Finally got some new tires and wheels. Now they won't need air every other day. Looks SO much better now!
Wheels: Gear Alloy Endurance 739b
Tires: Nitto Terra Grappler G2 (265/65-17)
We had a little dusting yesterday in Philly area, 2-3 inches of snow in DelCo. Gave me an excuse to figure out how to post pictures of my Ex.
2010 Merc Mountaineer with some Rubicon takoffs.
Looks good AZ. Any lift or spacers, or did you just bolt them on?
The 2007+ Jeeps are 5x5 lugs so I added a 2.5" adapter. The rims have a big hollow where the studs just protrude so no trimming needed. She already had the spring spacer added when I purchased her 2 years ago so there is lots of room for the 32" tall tires.
I just found a sixth so I can rotate the spares into the lineup. Maybe get 60k with rotating every 5k between the 6 tires.
I call her Dora. 2.5" Truxx strut spacers, BFA Upper Control Arms, Tires 32x11.5, Rims MT Side Biter II 15x8. Once I got all that installed I took her out mudding. She's a lot of fun to drive down the trails.
You must be an Aussie! Those beautiful tail lights !
Close, I'm a Kiwi!
Well, welcome to the forum ! Hope it finds you well!
Did they sell the Explorer and Everest at the same time there? I see now they only have the Everest on the Ford NZ website.
