    Huh ? What's next . . . ?

    Maybe NSFW, or may offend some of those with tender sensibilities. . .

    I put some 5 1/2" coils in the front and decided to take them out and keep the 3 1/2" coils, Once I have weight in the back it will level out.
    I used the old shocks off the rear of my dodge on the front to take it out for a test drive and it did well. trimmed the front fenders alittle and need to do a little more.

    No trips yet planned for the explorer but would like to hit up the snow again with the B2 before it is gone.

    When I was shopping for 8.8 lockers a year ago Yukon didn't have one for it. Yukon website only lists a LS unit right now. Seems odd for a pretty popular axle

    This is the reply I got


    "Sorry, they do not offer the Grizzly locker for the 8.8 yet. Let us know if you are interested in another locker"

    I ordered a power trax no slip for the rear, I was hoping I would have it installed before the 22nd but I got a notice saying it was going to ship from factory in 7-14 days

    Me and Jim (in his Navajo) running that locker with no issues at all. Very happy. Seems like I had to wait a couple weeks for delivery too via Summit racing

    I had one back in '05 with my first explorer and it was trouble free.
    I ordered a winch tray from summit Tuesday morning and I got it tonight:thumbsup:

    Mounted the winch and finished trimming the fenders, Had it on 2 wheels in the back yard.
    Need to modify the frame mount for the track bar mount and trim the engine crossmember for a little bit more clearance at the tie rod.
