    We did some work to it yesterday. Finally got around to installing my 2" lift and 1.5 add a leafs. Im very happy with how it turned out. Eventually ill probably put 32s on but for now im sticking with the 31s. Everything went smooth nothing was seized up thank god. I did have to repair a broken shock mount but that was easy. We also installed new tie rod ends. The alignment was so bad that we had to do a eyeball alignment so i could get it home. Tomorrow im taking it to the ford house to get it properly aligned. Next is probably a set of wheels, lil more aggressive stance i want. I think then ill purchase the new dog legs to get rid of the rust spot. Tell me what ya think.

    That looks great. I will be getting a Lift like what you got for mine also. After doing yours does it look like 32's will fit underneath pretty good?

    Ya i think 32s would fit easily, but keep in mind my front fenders are cut back a bit.

    Didnt do to much to mine today. Helped with a 5.0 swap, i did however power wash all the mud off mine. Im going to order some steel wheels soon, what is a good backspace to get for a little more aggressive stance?? Also i plan on pulling off the fog lights and trying to clean up the lens a bit, kinda foggy now......

    Ok guys new game for the Explorer is an engine rebuild. Couple of my friends are generious enough to give me a complete and running 4.0 ohv to rebuild. Now i wont have my truck down at all. Its not my DD but it will still be nice to cruise around in it.

    Not sure what im going to exactly do to the rebuild. I kinda want to keep it stock, but the hotrodder in me wants a cam, etc. Seems like everyone that does a hotrod 4.0 ohv is always having problems. I just want to turn the key and go, i dont like constantly tinkering on something.

    Yall chime in and give me some ideas on what i should.

    Heres some pics of our last outing, we did about 220 miles of nothing but offroad here in Central Texas. We really love this truck, and its actually my first 4x4 so we are having some fun with it!!!

    Well, i ordered some James Duff shocks today. Cant wait to get them on. I have bilsteins on the front now and stocks in the rear. Both are to short for the 2" lift. Rides kinda funny.

    Really nice guys there at Duff!

    Well got the Duff shocks in! I did get some what frustrated with the way Duffs sends out his shocks. You need to pull the bushing out and fight the mount to get thru the bushing. Then reinstall the bushing. Luckily i have some experience in this as ive redid countless suspension bearings on motorcycles. Still a bear tho!!!

    The front shocks were good just to short, the rears were originals from 93, one barely compressed, the other just felt like a spring.

    I took it for a quick ride around the neighborhood. Big difference! Overall im happy with the shocks, even with the small issue.
