    without the white fenders my BII would not be so patriotic! hahaha
    Body work and new paint is on the list

    I asked because I have thought about a single stripe on the BII hombre, when I was a kid I put a stripe on every RC car, model, everything :)

    Hell it doesnt matter what you do to the paint on that truck now, its always gonna be sexy underneath!

    I have really moved away from wanting a 5.0 in it. I have never really felt a huge lack of power in any of my explorers, and a 5.0 would just lead to more broken parts faster. OD is something that is nice to have, especially on a daily driver like this, but I'm not sold on any of the OD trans that are available. 700R4 has way to many issues that I am seeing. A4LD I have had decent luck with them, but I can't shake the turd feeling. 4R70W Computer controls hell and wiring nightmare. So that leaves the C4.

    Rockranger - The cats did have to be moved back. The 2nd one is attached directly to the muffler. They had to do that because they are not allowed to replace the two factory cats with one aftermarket one for some reason :rolleyes:, but they couldn't explain why.

    I dig the stripes. I can't imagine it without them at this point. They help make sure that it doesn't blend in with all the other Explorers here in town ;) .

    the 4r70w is not nearly as bad as you might think.
    You can run it with the Baumman controller or with the factory PCM.

    I didn't go 5.0L for the added power, I was always more then happy with the OHV especially in the #4000 BII, but now that I have the 5.0L I am sold, the shifting and range of the gears is excellent, I never dreamed a BII could be so nice to drive, it is night and day.

    The C4 is a great setup, just no OD, but it will work well behind the torquey OHV.


    A single cat should be 100% legal in place of the factory pre heater and cat setup, even in emissions nazi CA.

    I had the entire truck painted and the white stripes painted on it when I was living in Jackson Mississippi. That was back in 1997 or 1998 :) I still dig the look it gives the truck.

    It's not the same thing.

    Esp. if you have an O2 sensor between them.

    Tom, replacing the stock OHV 4.0L cat converter assemblies with a single cat is legal in 50 states. There is no 02 sensor between them.
    This is not a primary and secondary setup like the OBD-II trucks use (95+) it is a pre heater and cat.

    I have a better idea. You should go to the Truck Haven run Feb 4-5 and then head to Vegas from there :D

    I agree there was no reason to reuse the old pieces, but since I don't where baggy pants and weld exhaust for a living I couldn't possibly have known what I was talking about :rolleyes: . Oh well, it is in and done. If I need to at a later time, I'll redo it.

    Brian I'll have to see about that. Like Rick said, I'll be in Truckhaven the weekend before. I'll have to see what my pipeline and shcedule at work looks like at that time. Sounds like fun, I've never been to Vegas.

    One more HiJack/Bump :)

    I cant make TruckHaven. I will try one year, but I would need to take a week and a half off just for the drive.
    I am flying to Vegas so it was alot easier to pull :)

    I can tell you this though, When I make it back out to the west coast I will have the SAWZAW in hand. Some of you need it bad Bwhahahahahaha :)
