      The ex was dropped off at Vigilante Motor Sports to get a front bumper built and the winch installed. I bought a smittybilt 12k X20 with the synthetic rope. will also be putting on sliders. I am having them cut the rockers out right below the door due to some rust in the rocker. I gave them an idea of what I wanted and they said the will build something cool for me. Here are some before pictures. I will post after pictures when I get a chance. IMG_4566.JPG

      Here is the latest on the front bumper. I was not sure on what I wanted so the shop surprised me. I think it looks pretty good. They pulled the winch before I could get pictures but you get the idea. They still have to install a couple attachment points and paint it. They are also doing sliders for me.

      So for some updates, after over seven months of training and moving to Alaska I can finally work on the Exploder again. I found a small leak on the driver side rear window I sealed with some skylight sealant. My 78/79 Dana 60 housing showed up a little while back. I am not sure what I am going to do up front yet. I want going coil overs and radius arms or links. I found a 14 bolt at the local scrap yard so I will probably pick that up next week. I will start collecting parts for the tons and post as I go. I will go 5.38’s and Detroit lockers for sure. The last picture is from my local docks we took a stroll down this evening. Have a good evening all.

      I picked up a 14 Bolt and a King Pin 60 from a K3500 truck. I know the Chevy King Pin will not work on the Exploder but it was a good deal.

      Northwest fab or tmr both in Canada. One of them make a 5 bolt ranger to 6 bolt tcase conversion adapter. You could then run a passenger drop tcase and use that front 60.

      Thanks for the info, I am not sure yet what route I will go with the explorer. I may have a line on a 87-91 Ford 60 I can use.

      Does anyone have extra of these bolts. They are the bolts that hold the fuel rail down to the lower intake manifold. Let me know if you have any and how much please. Thank you.

      Installed some new to me rubber strips sound the heads lights and trimmed the grill a little to fit over the trans cooler better. I also decided to spruce up the engine a bit. I installed new injectors and have new plugs wires etc to install to help with the weird idle.
