    The new hi-flo ones look like they would work better then the ones I have, although I happy with the way mine work...

    Pretty soon, I won't worry about under hood cooling as the only part of the body that I'm leaving on the truck is the hood between the yellow lines:D:D:D

    believe it or not, after I spent all that time and effort to tuck the roll cage into the body, I'm going to cut off all the body and make it a buggy. It's going to look a bit like the pictures below which used to be a Wagoneer... All I'm keeping is the hood:confused:

    I'm doing a few more runs with it like it is and hope to have all the new work done by the AZ run early net year...

    Or, if anybody wants to buy it for $10,000 (minus the Atlas) let me know & I'll buy a buggy... Getting the van free'd me from needing to keep the Explorer family friendly so I'm gonna mess it up!

    Wow you've done a great job making this explorer lookin good, it'll be a shame to see it cut up i think. But how much will you sell those fiberglass fenders for? Please send me a PM.

    wow that nuts cause your rig look awesome as is. but hey to each his own.
    I wouldn't be surprised if you got it in a magazine, with the way it looks and is setup.

    but hey if you want to sell me your head lights/corners and taillights when you cut it up I'll buy them off you.
    oh and maybe your mirrors too I have a problem with snapping mine off. sucks

    just when I thought this truck couldn't get better. he ditches the MTRs (which I feel are really overrated and suck) for some Irocks (which i dream about and will be my next set of tires)
    I said it before and i'll say it again
    This truck is AMAZING!

    I skimmed the thread but didn't see it. How many inches forward did you move your axle?

    For me, it is great! When I installed it, I changed all the speakers in the doors and added tweeters up front. I have a dial to add more bass if I need it. I used to have a 10" Bazooka sub & this hits as hard as that... I'm not a super bass freak though, I like a lot of volume, but just enough bass.

    Thanks! I really like the new tires, the cool thing is W/ the aluminum rims, they weigh less then my old 35" creepy crawlers on steel rims.

    I hope to make that run in truckhaven, I'm planning on that being the last run before I start ripping into it.

    I planned for 2" but it ended up closer to 4" We welded the frame mounts for the radius arms a little too soon & the heims are all the way in. To adjust the axle I need to go out on the heims.

    I should have went 3 or 4 link with the coilovers but when I was planning everything I was just going to use coils. Now that it's done, I have pretty even flex front & back so It's all good.
