    any self respecting explorer should like this after a day at the trails.... :D unless you live in the west, and then substitute mud for dust.

    Love the bumper! I can't understand why bumpers like that are upwards of 300$, though. It's just metal welded together. :(

    mine ( a few posts up) doesn't have a TT yet. Only shackles and the 3" BL you can kinda see that my front sits a little lower than the back. My back was sagging before my shackles went on. so you can kinda see the height of the front still.

    Here's a shot of my last Explorer, which was a '98 5.0 AWD. It had a 1.5" TT, a Pro Comp short AAL, and 31x10.50 Kumho Venture KL78 ATs wrapped around 15x8 American Racing Baja wheels with a 3.75" backspacing.

    [​IMG]

    I'm currently modifying my '01 5.0 AWD similarly, but I'm thinking of going to 32s this time.
