    Hey GJarrett, I have to admit that Herc is one of "hero" Explorers. :salute: One of the ones that makes me desire to make mine more trailworthy. I love the fact that your Ex is able to constantly show up the J**pers, some of those J**p owners get pretty cocky about their rigs. :rolleyes:

    Anyway, I wanted to ask you how exactly you did the fender trimming with the Eddie Bauer fender flares. You said you were able to mask the trimming with them so I am assuming that there are somewhat flexible and are able to be bent into a different position easily? I have the TT/Shackle lift and possibly a body lift (and if I do that some 33's) planned for the not too distant future. I have an XLT not the Eddie Bauer however the fender flares are exactly the same. Like you, I want to keep a somewhat stock look because I really like the look of the trim that is currently on my Ex.

    Thanks in advance.

    Nah, I didn't bend them but I did carefully cut out the secondary lip that makes the flares about one inch farther down. There's no way to keep the full flares with 35's and the amount of lift mine has. With 33's you can carefully trim the inside of the flares and keep the stock look.

    that is a nice build Gerald... inspired me to start working on my newly acquired 98... although it's gonna be another month till I get to it.

    How's the front locker been working for you so far? Is Powertrax still the only unit that can be installed up there?

    thanks!

    :thumbsup:

    Good to hear from you Dre.... I believe I saw you very briefly talking to Rick back when we did the 10th Anniversary Attica run but I didn't know who you were so I kept drving on, and then you left before I figured it out.

    The front locker still works great. I haven't kept up with it, but I believe I remember hearing that even Powertrax quit building them.... you may have a hard time getting one. Maybe someone can chime in that knows.

    You deff. have a sweet ex, I just read through a bunch of stuff you wrote about your truck and makes me think that the IFS is strong enough for the light wheeling I do and makes me more confident in the TT.

    Anybody know if my rear and front gear ration needs to match? I am thinking of switching to a powertrax in the read of my 00 EB with high 4.xx gear set as i am planning on moving up in tire size as soon as my wife is away for a weekend.

    hmmmmmmmm thats peculiar thing to post in Gerralds Explorer registry

    Yes your gear ratios must always match in a 4x4, unless you are running different tire sizes front /rear LOL

    Nice Explorer Gerrald! will we see you in Moab 2010?

    Not unless my job situation improves dramatically.... it's a lot of $$$$ to travel that far from here. I really missed not being to go last year.
