    about how much was your drive shaft lengethed?? for 83 thats not bad.

    also did you rotate the pinion up when you mounted the new mounts for the spring over??

    are you running a locker in the rear? and how about the front?
    if so how bad is the axle wrap?? thanks for any info

    I used a Double Cardan rear shaft from a '95 explorer sport, measuring just under 37" long. I got it lengthened to 41" long. I rotated the pinion directly to the tcase, since i am using a DC rear shaft, no vibes at all.

    I am running a stock LS in the rear and have an auusie for the front, not installed yet. I have not yet regeared the front yet, i am having probs setting an appointment, it looks as if the next opening is the 2nd week in Feb.

    Axle wrap isn't too bad, it is only noticeable under WOT, which i never do, for offroad i'm working with a shop to make the MORE (http://mountainoffroad.com/) traction bar work on my explorer

    fab that mess dude!

    http://www.pirate4x4.com/tech/billavista/Anti_wrap_bar/antiwrapbar.htm
    (i followed this almost exact to counter my axle wrap - worked awesome for less than $50)

    dude the d30 gears are easy to set up - i had never done gear by myself until i did the d30. buy a shim pack in some of tha paint on putty. been wheelign it hard for nearly a year now. randy's sent me a yukon installation instructio manual when i bought everything.

    seriously took like 2 hours i was blown away. YOU CAN DO IT!! i wanna see that thing dirty!;)

    THnaks for that link gabe, i am gonna look into making my own.

    As for the gears, i'm not too worried about the front end, i'm actually gonna try to do them myself, i'm gonna have the shop do the rear, 3.73's aren't enough for these 36's. He's gonna charge me $200 for the rear.

    does $200 include gears? if so thats good. for the front gears adn instalation kits which is shimes and bearings from randies was $150 they still honor the serious explorations discount so that helped.

    my camera is broke or ide take a pic of my traction bar - its ghetto tough :D and makes a big difference. no more binding driveshaft and watching tcase shifter come up through the floor. one thin gi did was use tie rod rod dust boots and greased them up - i want to buy some grease fittings drill the end of the link and either tap and screw it in or just tack weld it so i can grease them regularily but so far no probs. im using rubber bushings.

    No they are the 35" X-terrains, i got them about a month ago, a friend had them in his garage for his Jeep, but got 36" TSL's instead so i got 5 tires for $400.

    I got tired of waiting for the aussie so i got the powertrax for the front, no problems at all with it, i'm wanting the spool, but i keep hearing people talk about how weak the carrier is, i dunno how true it is, so i['m probably gonna wait for the fall, i'm still running the LS rear.

    I'm trying to save up a bit of money, i plan on moving back to FL to finish school. I'm looking at UF, but my girl needs to go to Orlando to finish her school, so i may end up somewhere north of orlando, not too sure yet
