US 2000 Ford Explorer Prerunner

I have a 2000 Ford Explorer. I have made a custome long travel kit in the front.
I like this thread because it will help me with my explorer engine problems I know I will have.
I have had my truck for about 6 months.
I live in Anaheim.




THe front bumper is not finished yet.
I hope to have my truck done and jumping by august of this year.
up next is bump stops and new leafs for the rear.
In the back all I have are shackles for a little lift.

Depends on what size tire you get if you need a lift or not.
