    I like the look of it running the full width axels. Did you use the stock explorer steering box?

    Yes I did but it is pretty tired. the steering in kinda hard with the 37x14.00 tires. I would like to step up to PSC steering with hydro assist.

    Yea I know its wide, but the wheels were free. They are 10" wide, then I made the beadlocks. That added another inch or more per side. I never measured it but I will when I get a chance. I just got a dana 60 front and going to go to 40" pitbull rockers. I gotta go 3" higher to fit them. I have a three link not radius arms. I used johnny joints at the frame end, 2" square tube for the link and rubber spring bushings for the axle end. I think it works very good, but its very squirrely on the highway. Go to www.northerncolorado4x4.com and check out some action shots. I tryed the f150 spring swap and it works great, but i modified it with adding 2 more leafs from an early bronco. now I got 6 leafs. They are thin but have alot more arch. I netted 2 1/2" of lift. It's not too stiff and flexes good. I would be happy to answer any more questions that you may have.

    it drives like crap on the highway. no swaybars, super soft springs, beadlocked wheels, and bias ply 37x14.00 tires make for an interesting ride. I trailer it everywhere.

    what size lift springs did you use in the front? and how much lift did that generate from stock?? also what shocks did you use? my d44 hp sas has ranchos that are for a 4 inch 78 bronco lift and i have no clue what the springs are and the springs need to be replaced id like to keep it the same hight if not a little taller would be fine to. also how much rear lift do you have resulting from the leaf set up you have? i also have no idea what mine are and they are still good but im just guessing ill need them some time.

    sorry for all the questions i guess i should have built it instead of bought it.
