      Greetings Brian.

      As soon as you have a set of these ready, I'm in. Just got back from some moderate trail riding, and the number of time I smacked the shock bottoms was silly. The stock mount loves to dig into deep mud when you're trying to back out as well.

      Just let me know when your set.

      Score!

      PM sent back, payment coming shortly and my thanks for making these great shock skids. This forum pays off again and again. If I ever make it out to one of those events, the first round is on me.

      33-185552 with a custom upper mount to eliminate the bar pin. Length works great with my 2" lift.

      Yes I have a pair to ship. You know your Explorer already has these though right? The only difference really is that mine flip the shock up and are made for bigger u-bolts. Let me know and we can set it up.

      Say Brian, I'd like to get a pair of them with the stock shock height.

      How long are the bigger u-bolts, I do have 1.375" lowering blocks so I need a little longer than stock u-bolt?

      Can you also do me a set of shackles for me as well, a stock length also?

      Don, I don't have any pair with the stock shock location. I can make a pair but I'm not sure when that would be, maybe a week or 2 up to a month. Yes, I can also make some stock length shackles.

      The u-bolts I use are about 10" long and I think the stock ones are about 8". You can cut u-bolts to fit usually to make them the exact length you need. With a lowering block you would need a longer u-bolt so yes. If your current u-bolts are working now with some threads sticking out of the nuts then they would also work with these new skidplates but I would recommend going to the larger diameter u-bolts anyway.

      Let me know if you would still be interested and I can keep you posted on when I have a stock position shock skidplate available.

      That sounds great. I'm not in any hurry, I've just been putting off the job of cutting my old perch off(the left bolt seized in the perch).

      I have the EE lowering kit, which came with longer and slightly better u-bolts than stock. I'll take the new bigger u-bolts and trim them slightly. Thanks, just let me know when you get close and I'll be here.:thumbsup:

      Finally went to the post office to pick these up, they are super beefy! Huge improvement. Will have to install them when when it warms up a little, waited too long to order these and now it's snowing! Thanks again.

      Ditto Brain, I got mine a few days ago also. Great work, excellent welding and alignment of the pieces. They are very thick and heavy, I wonder what the thin stock pieces weigh. I'll have to cut one shock bolt off to remove mine. Thanks again.
