      Hvac, that'd be awesome. I haven't wheeled with many Explorers so this would be fun. Moab for sure. I just received word hours ago I was accepted for the NCO Acadamy and am leaving soon so next spring is way open!

      Derrick,
      Who you calling boy? Youngin!

      Copy who? So you've got front fiber and a bunch of ideas. I've already got the SAS, fiber front and rear, and posted MY color first! :D So there.

      And I posted all this lovely information in one post so someone cannot accuse me of senseless posts to keep my numbers up.;)

      Alright guys how about any time you get ready to go do some wheeling in Moab you tell me at least 2 days in advance and I'll go. Summer, spring, fall, or winter :)

      BTW: I got my switches figured out and half way mounted if anyone cares any more :)

      OK smart guy :) Here is the pic.

      I used 24 gauge stainless steel and am going to cover it with some stick on carbon fiber that I have left over from another project. I am also going to add a cover so my wife doesn't spill coffee on it :)

      I was thinking this should have been in offroad accessories, but it does involve the offroad only driveline..LOL

      sweet ass sweet.

      hey I still havent mounted my switches and I have had my locker installed for almost a year now! they are just hanging by a wire tie.........damn.

      Looks like I have a small project this weekend. Dont get me wrong its been on the list but there were many things ahead of it.

      Okay so you got switches mounted, what about compressor, wiring, and air lines?
      :)

      not to mention the LOCKERS!!!!!!

      How much was the rear locker if you dont mind? I have found them from $599 to $680 for the 31 spline 8.8

      Lets see if I can find the paper work on my install.

      Yep, found it.

      $1068 for both lockers
      $100 ARB compressor
      $375 front and rear 4.56 gears
      $500 for labor to install.
      Total:$2,043


      I ran the rear air line down the inside of the frame rail. Then straight down to the axle. The front is pretty much straight down. It runs right next to my pitman arm.

      Cool then we'll get something together next year for moab then.

      Well the prices for the lockers are all the same, so it cost me 600.00. I have the front installed and am ready to go get an alignment. The rear is going in the first of next week :) I am going to wait till the weekend to mount the compressor and plumb the lines. It sucks coming home from work and then going back to work on your truck every nite. Tonight I went to that new movie UNDERWORLD, it was pretty good.

      410 if you need one I can make you a mounting plate similar to mine with the carbon fiber sticker or stainless like you see in the picture.

      THANKS but that wont work in my BII.....I dont have an Explorer center console. Also the wires and everything are run to where I want the switches, I also got these trick ARB switch holders, so you can put 2-3 switches together, I just need to make up the switch plate (my dremmel is broken) I will borrow a buddies dremmel this weekend.

      I drive my BII daily, whats wrong with that?


      We are going to slaughterhouse at 8:30 am tomorrow morning, 2 Explorer's, my BII and a Jeep ZJ
