    Any updates? Also you must have a pretty cool Mom. I don't think I could get away with leaving something like that at my parents house.

    Slow, we're thinking of finding a f350 donor for a pair of 60's instead of the ttb 50. Just takes money :(

    I think you should stick to the D50, it would be so much cooler! And I want you to figure out everything so I can do a D44 TTB on my truck later.

    So looks like change of plans:rolleyes: We have been discussing what to do with the Frame, as I said before it's pushed in 1/2" back on the driver side in between the front two mounts. we really didn't want to put money into the frame for straightening...:( This has been our hold up right now.

    and then the answer fell in our lap.:D While down buying some DOM from a guy on DR, he donated a to us a '95 Supercab Ranger Cab, on a stripped 2wd frame.:thumbsup:

    This should speed up some things, as the frame will be set up for a steering box already, dash is the same, and we can box the frame from the beginning. We'll transplant the SOHC, and thinking of using the Explorer front clip still. Most likely the rest of the Sport will be sold for scrap.. after we take off what ever else we need or what ever else can be sold..

    The sad part is I really wanted to save this truck....but it's just to far gone. There is evidence of at least 3 different accidents in this truck. It's really been trough a lot, and yet still starts up and moves on it's own. It;s heart will live on though.....;) that I promise.

    Sad to see you couldn't save the frame. I'm glad part of her will live on. A testament to the toughness of the Explorer
