    Kind of new to the forum. Signed up a while back but haven't posted much.

    Explorer specs. mostly stock 4.0, built A4LD, manual 1354, HP44 front, 9" rear. Front has 5.13's, ARB, high steer. Rear is detroited, 5.14's with a currie case, disk brakes with caddi calipers. 4" custom Alcan leafs in the rear. 5.5" BC bronco's EB springs in the front with custom coil buckets. 1 ton drag link end steering. AC pump converted to on board air run to rear bumper. Tires are 36x12.5x15" TSL SX's.

    I don't have a whole lot of pics of it. I usually go by myself and I don't have a camera.

    This winter it's getting a 5.0 HO swap, AOD to NP208, HP 60 front with the same gears and locker as now, and a dana 70 rear with the same as now. I am also going to do a full exo and probably run 38's or 39.5's.

    TTIUWOMP! (this thread is useless without more pics) :D

    Looks awesome. I have very similar plans as far as axles and motor go, but I'm just going to stick with the d44/9" combo and 36-37s. If you could get some more pics, that would be awesome. :)

    I would love to get more pics. But I didn't take those even. A friend of mine did. I don't have a camera. The 44 and 9" will make it's way into my bronco II, along with the motor, tranny tcase from the explorer. I already have the axles built for this winters swap and my motor.

    No problems with APD yet. I do have rear mudflaps. I have plans for flares. But not until the 60 goes under it. I need to see what I'm going to have to trim to get the 38's to fit

    ive got either a D60 or 14bolt under my explorer right now, gotta decode the axle to find out what it is, owner said it was a 14 bolt, but its got the ford slight offsetpinion output which tends to lean towards ford origin

    I am doing one in a couple of months. Already have the axles. Just waiting on my transmission to swap in the 5.0L as soon as I can get her IMed one last time.

    It cost me quite a bit. I probably have about $2500 into the front. And around $1500 into the rear. That is no including springs. My springs were $225 for the fronts and around $500 for the rears.
