      More updates and future explorer enhancements

      Here's what the good old Detroit looks like with the 4.56 jegs gears. I wanted to change my gear oil in them anyways, but the oil that came out of it looked new, piece of mind I guess lol

      I need new fenders. This side is completely rotted at the bottom and is now being held on with some big ol' zip ties.

      I attended the All Truck Nationals on Saturday. 4 Wheel Parts gave me a good deal on rims that I could not pass up. They are the pro comp 98-5865 15X8" 3.75" Backspacing. They retail for about 58.99 each on their site. Got em for $54 each and free shipping. X4 @ $216. Off their site it would have totaled $246.80

      Since I need new fenders, I am thinking about getting 35's mounted on my new rims and making them fit. I can cut my front fenders for now, put the lift shackles back on the rear end, and worse comes to worse I can buy the flared fiber glass fenders from mcneilracinginc.com.

      What do you all think?

      cut and fold the fenders you have.. couple guys on the site have done it and it looks great IMO.

      I had contemplated the snorkel when I had my stock airbox still in, but dont think I really need it. I was top of bumper deep in some creek crossings last weekend w/out any trouble, no water splashing up against the cone filter. I do need to build a half box to prevent up splash and to reduce the engine heat getting sucked in though.

      your truck is looking good.. cheap mods are the best! haha

      Super Swamper LTB 35"

      I got my 35" LTB's about a week ago

      [​IMG]
      Used a reciprocating saw and a grinder to remove excess metal

      [​IMG]

      A flex shot. I need to lengthen my ebrake cable, It has been my limiting strap for a while now and I just now noticed!:eek:

      [​IMG]
      Here is a comparison shot. A 33x10.50 BFG All Terrain Tire on a stock explorer rim to a 35x12.50 on pro comp steel rims 15x8 w/ 3.75" backspacing

      I got these through JcWhitney for $857 shipped to my door and $32 to get them mounted. They ride great for not being balanced when they warm up!

      Thanks for the compliments guys. I love how strong I built the bumpers cause I can use them to determine where trees are at when making tight maneuvers in the woods. aka bump stops! lol

      Yeah search pvc snorkel in several different forums. That is what I did for ideas for mine. If I had it to do over again I would have used 3" pipe, but then I would have had to route it differently cause 2" was tight behind the fender.

      EDIT:
      The PVC snorkle was a waste of time. It robbed fuel economy and power because of only being 2". I never get into water or mud so it was a waste of time. It was one of my young and dumb mods!

      It's hard to tell when I will be done. I wish to have it ready for when snow flies... who knows?? lol I just got done working on it. I got the coil buckets mounted and the front axle hanging. I doubt i will work on it again til next weekend. I need to start remembering to take more pictures.

      Thanks for the compliment on the limited man.

      I like the tough built bumpers. That's awesome that your girl has one, looks good does it have the same lift setup as yours?

      Yeah, her explorer is identical to what mine used to be. 3" body and almost 2" suspension lift. Her explorer has the axles & 4.56 gears that was in my explorer.
      She hit a deer with it not to long ago and busted the grill and the passenger side headlight out of it. Also mangled up the bumper and fender. I got the fender pounded out pretty good, built a bumper for it, and put a chrome grill and the chrome headlight housings in. Now it doesn't have that limited edition look that I miss, but it could have been worse. I'll get pictures on here of the way it looks now sometime here.

      Hopefully this summer. I am planning to enter it in the all ford nationals and then go wheeling with the explorer forum group that sunday, but I won't know if I will be able to until closer time.

      About a month ago my torque converter took a dump. It still moved but it sounded like a tin can rolling with a few nuts and bolts in it.
      It was a jasper remanufactored a4ld that had 40,000 miles on it when I had it installed in my explorer. I put about 70,000 miles on it. So 110,000 miles before the tc let loose. I couldn't believe it lasted that long.

      [​IMG]

      I didn't do the normal solute or piss on it.... it did serve me well for what I paid for it and the abuse it has been through.

      I got the Y exhaust pipe out today in prep for installation of the manual tranny. Broke 2 of the y pipe to manifold bolts (1 on each side). I ordered these studfix.com in hope that I won't have to drill these out.

      Hopefully I get this done before any real snow flies because this sas hasn't seen snow yet!

      Well my explorer has been a 5 speed manual for a while now. It is a night and day difference between the automatic and this manual. It seems to get up to speed quicker with less effort, I love it!

      When on the rocks and technical spots it needs lower gears. I came across behemoth fab's strong box kit and decided to order a 1354/1354 kit. Should put me at a 107 crawl ratio. Right now my crawl ratio is 43 :eek: I'm excited!
