      Thats because no one makes any kind of lift for it at all.

      There is really no point in lifting it since it's got Independant Rear Suspension (IRS) which is why no one makes a lift for it.

      If you want a lifted explorer, go for 1st generation (91-94, the best for 4-wheeling) or a 2nd generation (95-01 newer, but not as flexy as the first generations because they have IFS)

      But welcome to the board. Those 3rd generation explorers are cool, but just aren't meant for lifting and wheeling. I have seen some pretty cool ones with blown V-8s and other go fast mods!
