    Well, just replaced my '99 Exploder with a '95 C1500 on a 3" bodylift and 33x12.5s. Not a bad rig, loving it actually, just making this here as sort of an introduction; as soon as I have a name for her, I'll start another thread where I update log. Looking forward to this, just as I did my...

    Solved 4.0 SOHC Ticking Hunt

    Okay, know this has probably been covered, done several searches already and just want y'alls opinion on this. Had an engine tick for several months now, always ticks until I'm up to a decent speed, or it's just not loud enough to hear at that point. It speeds up with the rpms, if I hit the gas...

    Fog Light LED Conversion Question

    Anyone know of an easy way to get the inner section out of the fog light assembly? Just those four screws, don't want to have to take the bumper and brush guard off again just reach the top screw and take the whole dang assembly out. I think I could just take the bumper corner that used to be...

    Fun Halloween Suggestions

    So, decorating Deathrow for Halloween, didn't do much last year except for chains from the mirror and a severed hand on the dash (both of which are still there). But I want to hear some things y'all think would do nicely, or things y'all have done to yours before. Just added these chains to the...

    Solved Maybe not so Urgent Issue

    My '99 Ford explorer and it drove just fine yesterday. Went to start it this morning and....nothing. Just, nothing. I can turn things like the visor on, the battery reads just fine. Replaced the alt a few months ago. The ignition fuse is good, could be a starter? I put the key in, there is like...

    Project Moonvisor: Success

    And well, well, well...I love when you manage to wire something on your own when no one thinks you can. Sat out there for a whole day testing and being sure and by the next morning, bought the right amount of wire, a new switch, etc. And had it up in an hour. Did also replace the bulbs with...

    Well, shes officially painted a new Satin Black with a green pinstripe. Put smoked lenses on the moonvisor, need to hook it up still; need to put the brush guard back on as well. But she still has the issue of I've tried every fix for theft mode but nothing works. So I'm talking to some...

    Solved Theft Mode Issues

    Okay, I know this has been discussed plenty, even on Google. But I took the truck in to be painted and they somehow threw it in theft mode. Would like some suggestions for getting it out if it without having to bring it back to ford. I tried a few quick methods before I had to work the other day...

    Solved Clunks While Turning Left?

    So my '99 Explorer XLT 4x4 ever since I got her back in 2019 has made a clunking on left turns now and then, usually not so much at lower speeds. I've replaced the cv axles which was believed to be the issue but it still does it. It's just a clunk, it's not affecting the steering or anything...

    '99 Explorer XLT Update & Odd Questions

    Finally got my light bar in and placed, looking great so far. Switched all of the exterior lights but the headlights and high beams with LED's. Next step is fixing a leak in the intake gasket manifold which is on it's way. As well as some warrior 153 shackles on the way to get a simpler lift for...
