orange Lifted Sport Tracs Picture Thread!

Heres a thread to show everyone your lifted sport trac with pictures and to describe what you did to it. This will hopefully give people some information so that they too can lift their sport trac.

*** Edit by John_Rock ***

This is a picture thread of lifted Sport Tracs. Please post any questions about lifts and tires in this thread:

http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/...d.php?t=231158

Thanks.

yeh well if you drill the side brackets and lower it that way you would have to cut off the bracket that bolts it to the underside of the rail...

Yours may mount different. Mine only mounts to the side of the frame. The top of the bracket was cutoff after new holes were drilled... Search, someone posted pictures of theirs a few weeks ago... search uhaul hitch body lift or something

This is the way the Sport Trac 4x4 should have come from the factory.

It's a Yakima Megawarrior. http://www.orsracksdirect.com/yakima-8007080.html
I found an online coupon for the website a while back that was an additional 10% off or something, but I can't find it now.

its pretty simple

a) body lift
b) Superlift

brush guard brackets can be cut and re-welded to match the body lift
i did my bull bar that way, question solved, shouldnt be in this thread anyways....
SOOO to make this post much better, here is a new pic of mine
