    Hey guys, I have a '97 explorer XLT 4x4. It's my first vehicle and I want to make it an off roadi vehicle. Now, because you have to movE the tOrsion bars when you lift a '97, only one company makes a lift. All I want is a couple inches for some ground clearance and some bigger tires. Can anybody help out?

    Go with a body lift or a small torsion bar twist and Warrior shackles in the rear. If you do both of these, you can fit 33'' tires.

    Haha wow, sorry, my spellcheck completely distorted that. I meant to ask if it is possible to add a leaf in the back of the truck and do a rough country 1.5in. leveling kit in the front?
