    im going to buy a body lift for my explorer today and was wondering where every one bought theirs and how they liked it. There are 2 that i am considering
    4wheelparts.com which is 97 dollars
    TruckPerformance.com which is 107 dollars

    its the 3 in body lift for first generation 2wd

    i got mine at a local parts store, its the performance accessories one. it made my explorer look more offroad, and it rode a little bit smoother. the only thing that is a pain is the bumpers. on the rear one, u will have a cut out a piece of your bumper, or make custom brackets, i was finishing mine at about 11 at night and couldnt see very well so i just welded my rear bumper on and called it good.

    Well you can buy it anywhere that sells it, but if you are like me you wouldnt mind paying an extra $10 or so to support your local 4x4 shop........I dont mind paying a little extra (key word little) in order to support my local 4x4 shops/owners/community.

    You can buy the BL from summit. I just went to their site and it says it's 97.95 and includes front and rear bumper brackets.

    Ima tell ya now dude. Body lifts are not easy but not hard eaither. I did a full size bronco and a 2 door explorer. they would be pretty minimial if those front body mounts weren't so damn weird!! ford got pretty creative on these plates they use to hold the front end of the body down; and they are tough as nails to get off. after that, dropping the radiator is probably the hardest part. from there a case of beer, a friend, and a weekend and you should be good to go.

    Yes it does. If you go to fitment, it says 91-94 4WD or 2WD. Plus nobody makes BLs for other year Explorers
