    I have been considering bead locks for some time now, I have never blown a bead If I have any problems I will be buying some of the DIY weld on type, I have a friend who got some for his Bronco2 and they seem to work

    What did you end up using for E-brake cables in the rear?

    did the ones from the donor truck work?

    Thanks

    The stock e-brake cable was long enough for mine.

    OK thanks

    I didnt think that the stock explorer cables would work due to the full width axles and now the 2 more inches of suspension lift i now have.
    The stock cables seemed to be almost too short with my 4" lift leafs and extended shackles before.

    I think i will try using a set of ranger cables since they should give me a little more slack

    Thanks

    I have added a few new items
    yukon Superjoints and a HD airline for the rear locker and switched to BC bronco 6 1/2" springs in the front, they seem to me to have a much better ride on the trails that the progressive type I had in before

    Fornt end springs

    I have a 1994 explorer and the doner rig is a 1979 bronco I understand all the things you have done but what kind of coil springs did you use and how much lift are they rated for thanks?

    I am now using the BC bronco 6 1/2" lift W/Winch springs (early bronco)they provide me with about 6" of lift, and they ride much nicer on and off road than the 5 1/2" wildhorse rockcrawlers(early bronco) I had on it before.
    I recently rode in a stock 91 X and my explorer rides smoother than stock.

    You are way up north of me

    I still have not had any problems with the crossmember, I have recently trimed more from the crossmember for more clearance when I modified my tracbar and tracbar bracket

    The brakelines are 6" extended if I remember right, the radius arms are stock witha slight bend in them for tire clearance.
    You can swap in a axle fairly cheap if you find donor rig, it is the upgrades that start costing you money, I would guess I have around 3K invested in my front axle as of today
