      Nah, i blocked up the standard intake hole on the airbox (its at the front)
      made a new old in the side and attached some pipe and sealed it all up.

      I didnt remove the fender, but it took a little bit of trial and error getting it all up in there, its very tight between the fender and the inner fender/engine bay so theres not much room to move.

      the tyres are 33 12.5 15's
      Wheels are 15x8 with 3.75" backspace.

      Mine connects through the side. Removing the fender is actually pretty easy. There's one fastener behind the turn signal, but the rest are pretty obvious.

      what PA body lift kit # is being used for the 98-2001 Explorer? I used the blocks that was with a 98 Ranger bed & extended cab I bought several years ago, The cab also had the steering column extension, but both front & rear bumpers were already sold. so I don't have the bumper relocation brackets. I need to come up with a parts list #s for the brackets to order from Performance Accessories or find some parting out a Ranger or Explorer with the needed brackets or make something up myself

      so ive only had my mounty for about 3 months now and i absolutely love it. so far i only have the TT and shackles, still have to put my helper springs on which should bring the rear up maybe another 1/2"-1" (wheels and bull bar courtesy of the previous owner ;)), but before winter hits i will be getting some 31x10.5 tires.

      Why do you have limit straps AND torsion bars? I thought torsion bars did a "fantastic" job of limiting travel by themselves.

      Superlift kit comes with the limit straps, and he has his sway bar off. T-bars won't stop the C/V's from overextending like the sway bar does.

      Just a torsion twist and some shackles for now. The future holds more but gathering parts. It will need some good amount of trimming to work the way I want. Those are 36x13.50x 17.

      Hey what’s up I have my own Ford Explorer

      I own a 2002Ford Explorer Sport (2door) and is 2wd .

      I am planning on lifting it with a spindle lift and TT for 6” in the front and doing a SOA conversion with shackles in the back. Do you think I am on the right track??

      At the end of the day I want a 5”-6” lift. NO BODY LIFT though. And to be able to fit 33s or 34s tires under the car it’s spacers for a wider stance for off road and camping.

      My explorer at the moment is Sprig under axle Ford 8.8 all stock. And torsion bar up front.

      At the end of the day I want a 5”-6” lift. NO BODY LIFT though. And to be able to fit 33s or 34s tires under the car it’s spacers for a wider stance for off road and camping.

      What do I need to do to get my lift.?
