    Thats pretty cool. I always thought those looked pretty neat, even though I'm not much on GMs. So basically a restoration, with slight improvements where budget allows?

    yeah.. not a full resto, more of a 'freshening up' with some modern conveniences added

    Spend the entire day in Gilmer/Burnsville WV with some guys from the Jeep club im in. Wheeled the Explorer pretty hard.. finally had to be winched, twice, and pulled up a hill by another Jeep, then pulled the Jeep behind me up. Lots of steep hill climbs with loose soil, rock obstacles that I needed some winching to help navigate, and negotiations with trees led to an incredible day out on the trails. My co-pilot/spotter didnt get the camera out, we were too busy going 'oh crap' to all the obstacles we came up on. Hopefully some of the other guys got some pics and I'll copy em over.

    Nice pictures. What psi did you run in your tires. It makes a night and day difference wheeling on the rocks with my tires at 15 psi and compared to 40 psi on my bfg all terrains

    I got tired of hearing people say "if you were locked you would have crawled right through that" so I bought an Aussie locker off of a member on pirate for the rear of the Explorer today.

    ...And if you have a LS rear end now, you will need to find an open carrier to install your aussie into...;)

    I have an open rear end.. so the Aussie should go in fine.

    I have other problems though.. finally came down hard enough on the front end to crack the diff housing. bummer.

    My friend Josh who built my rear bumper/swingout recently built a front bumper for my Explorer. He built the bumper around the vehicle to give it a clean look. Bumper is made with 1/4" and 3/16" steel plate with 1/2" bar stock for the d-ring mounts that are welding through the bumper and onto the mount that is bolted to the frame. To make a long story short, its sturdy.
