    Looks real good, :salute: , I am not sure why the ford engineers never played around with the suspension height and tire size when they were in the R&D phase

    I'm thinking of losing the running boards. So, should I just remove em and leave em like that or is there something that I can use to cover the under side on both sides? What do you call those things? :wtf:

    It looks great. That is what I want to do to mine when the tires I have wear down. How does it ride? Someone told me that when you do the TT the front end wants to bounce more.

    Actually, the ride now is a lot better. I had the sagging rear before together with the stock Wrangler RTS tires and the ride was horrible and bouncy. After the 2" lift and levelled all 4 sides of the truck and installed all 4 new mud terrain tires, the ride now is a lot smoother. I never thought that I would be able to make the ride of my explorer any beter. I did some research on ratings on the explorer's ride and they weren't good that's why I gave up on even thinking on how to make the ride any better but this worked for me. :D

    Exactly. The only thing I changed was the sub. Everything else is stock from the amp to the wiring..... everything. All you have to do is hook up the speaker wire to the new subwoofer once you get the stock subwoofer out, which is the hard part, since the stock subwoofer is bolted from the back of the magnet and you'll have to remove the side panel and all that to unscrew the old sub.
