    here's an updated pic of my truck. 33x12.50/15 BFG AT's. rims are 15x10's. i got the rims off craigslist for $30. they were in horrible shape, but after sand blasting and many coats of paint(2 layers of primer, 4 layers of black, 3 layers of clear coat) they look pretty damn good if i say so myself. i also put my factory center caps on, i think it looks a hell of a lot better with them on. i still need to do some trimming bc my tires rub on the fenders and front bumper a little bit.

    [​IMG]

    here's a closer view of the front tire and you can see just how close it is to the fender and bumper. plus how wide the rim is doesn't help the rubbing in the least bit.

    sure get a sawzall and start hacking away. or you just won't have all that much flex before you rub. it can be done, but without the clearance it will inhibit your performance.

    Can someone point me in the right direction of doing a COIL OVER from TORSION BAR front suspension on a 2000 Explorer? I'd really like to toss the low hanging bars and go with something much more simple and ground clearance enhancing.

    I don't see why it'd be so difficult. I put coil overs on my Mustang....I don't see why it'd be complicated to do on a truck.

    if you're going to ditch the t bars you might as well do a SAS.

    and if you decide to do that there are a ton of threads

    Thanks... I'm the only lifted explorer in my little town and the only orange and white two-tone and the loudest/best sounding explorer... so everyone knows when I've arrived and who I am by my explorer.

    The rims were 15x10's but I don't know what the backspacing was.. they were off a mud jeep

    Thanks....It is actually custom made... my younger brother built it in he's highschool metals class...

    I've got updated pics on page17 with 35's on my exsport..
