      '93 XLT
      I haven't had an explorer for about 4 years. My previous ride is under the "featured explorers" page (Todd Edgerton). I found a '93 XLT on ebay that I couldn't pass up. It has 9" of lift(6" susp./3" bl) and 36/14.5/15 Swampers. It looks like the owner invested good money in high dollar/quality parts but, the truck needs some TLC to get back into show/trail shape. My question is where can I buy bumper brackets for the front and rear to raise the factory bumpers up 3" to compensate for the body lift?

      Also, the truck has 3.73 gears and I am going to yank them out and install 4.88's and a locker. What is the best locker for on/off road use?

      Thanks,
      Todd

      Welcome back.. For the rear bumpers, you probably could make some out of 1/4" steel plate.. The bumper brackets for the 95-01 3" body lift are the same. As for the front, I dunno about that one.. Why not just make a custom bumper. Most people like Powertrax's lockers.
