    Relatively new to the forums here as I am, this is one of my first posts. I recently bought a 93 lifted explorer off of a guy I live close to. He had it for a short period of time. He installed a 4 inch Rough Country lift and threw a set of 33 inch by 10.5 inch Super Swampers. Some rusty areas but overall it is a solid truck. Except for the destroyed spindle. The previous owner said a five foot jump did it in. He also blew out the automatic locking hubs so it has manual locking hubs now. Still has the 4.0L V6 Pushrod engine but every gasket has been replaced. The transmission and gearbox were apparently rebuilt to achieve a gear ratio of 327 to run the heavy rims and tires. The interior is beat up and I have a little bit of body work to work on. Any advice would be nice. I also think I want to switch the interior from tan to black. Ideas would be much appreciated.

    I will post pictures as soon as I figure out how to...

    Hey guys, ran into an issue yesterday. The rear driverside door wont unlock or open. Ended up removing everything from the door and still cant work it til it opens. Any advice to get it open myself to save me from a huge bill from a dealer?

    I'll try to get some pics up later tonight or tomorrow of it. I'm currently replacing the front passenger spindle and then I have to tackle a major tranny fluid leak where the engine and tranny meet. Any help or advice on anything that im working on would be much appreciated.
