    Hello Everybody!

    Well I figured I would finally start my own thread, about my favorite subject!:D

    Little History: 27 years old, Engaged (1 month away), Commercial Air Balancer for small family business (VP), home owner, B.S. degree (Cum Laude) in Business from VCU

    Explorers: '95 EB 4.0 4WD & '96 Limited 5.0 2WD

    The Limited is my work truck and will stay close to stock. It will prolly get a KKM and duals when the muffler needs replacing (a V8 ain't a V8 without duals).

    The EB will be my toy. Scary part is that after paying attention and reading posts for months now, I am more confused than ever on what exactly I am going to do to it. Original plan was TT/Shackles & AALs and 3" BL and 33x12.5s. Of course that is up in the air now, and I am considering alternatives. Ask me know, ask me tomorrow, then ask me the next day...........you will prolly get 3 different answers! Engine will stay about stuck except, of course, a KKM and cat-back.

    Here is a link to the Before pics of the EB: '95 EB

    You Guys (and Gals) Have a Good One!

    Robb:smoke:

    BTW: This is the Limited

    My first Mod to the EB (well, after AALs). It should have been about mod #19, but I just had to have it. A CRL Customs rear tube bumper and tire carrier.

    Yes, that is rust. It is just bare metal right now, so it is gathering a lil surface rust.

    Thanks for the compliment!

    It does look good Robb!
    But where is the licence plate? I can see the plate lights hanging down, but where are you putting the plate? In a holder?

    Thanks Guys!

    The plate location remains undetermined at this point. Cory @ CRL could have mounted plate mounts anywhere, but I decided to get it and play around with a couple of locations to see where it would look best.
    Time to go get some primer.................

    Whoah, that pic reminds me of when someone else here got a 3+" lift, and didn't get the tires until a month later or so....That looks so funny:D

    Update:

    The X is back from Cory @ crlcustoms and the YJ D30 is installed. Got the 35s today and they are on.:D Rancho 9000Xs will be installed this weekend (if the fronts ever get here:rolleyes: ). Hopefully, within the next couple of weeks, it will be drivable; at least 2WD with open 3.73s in it. Stuff like a front driveshaft, gears, and lockers may have to wait awhile:( , but that is okay.......there is still plenty of smaller stuff to play around with on it.
