      I have a 1997 Explorer that I want to mod out with a Lift Kit, Manual Transmission, Roll Cage, 31-33 inch tires, Chop the rear cabin (like a shortened Sport-Trac), Chop Rear for better entry/exit of obstacles, front bumper with winch, Skid-plates, 5-point harnesses, snorkel intake/exhaust, off-road lights, etc... :exporange

      Any possible additional mod advice would be appreciated. Any information on current suppliers of parts would be appreciated as well.

      For 31 inch tires you can do the classic Torsion Twist/Shackles combo. Search around a little bit and you'll find someone who's done it. For 33inch you may wanna put a body lift on it, 2 or 3 inches just do a search on that as well and you will find more than enough information. Everything you've mentioned has been done so just do some searching and you will find everything you need. Click on my link in my signature to go to my registry and you'll see some off those things that i've done to mine on my car.
