    :thumbsup:Looks really good. I like how it allows good approach angle.

    I just had to bend down the rear hard line and relocate the shocks.

    Mine is made by Performance Accessories. That is pretty much the only brand left I believe. SOA means spring-over-axle. I moved the rear springs over the rear axle to gain a bunch of ground clearance. The explorer has a bit of a rake now, but the clearance is great.

    Bunch of stuff: TT, Warrior shackles, SOA, 3" body lift, locked front/rear, custom front bumper, and rock sliders. Rolling on 36 inch swampers.

    1996 Eddie B on waggy's

    Thats a nice cross member. What did you make it out of? Can you take a close up of how it butts up against the frame rails?

    Trimmed the fenders up to better handle the larger tires: Looks a lot better now, plus I won't trash the tires next time I go wheeling.

    Rear suspension question - give me your input

    You will have more rake than you think you will. You will definately have to cut your front fender to clear 35 inch tires. Trust me, been there done that and I have a 3 inch body lift as well.

    Swampers! Swampers! Height difference between the old BFG 35's and the 36's.

    Man it's a busy year for this explorer. I just picked up 4 36" swamper tsl radials for a steal last night. Hoping to get them on this weekend.

    Yeah, 5 is it. They're a handful... I'd love to come wheeling but most likely cannot since it will be halloween and my wife is about to burst with baby. Have fun!

    Eh, the body lift is coming out once I SAS it. For now it'll stay the way it is. Still planning the SAS. I am going to ditch the magnet t-case. It is really annoying.

    They're great. We're expecting our 5th - a boy! We'll meet him in November.

    I finally pulled the trigger on a mod I've been contemplating for some time. I strongly feel this is one of the most effective mods I've made since adding a locker and going to 35's. SOA! This $120 mod (Ruff Stuff Specialties 8.8 SOA kit) gave me gobs of ground clearance I was sorely...

    Winch shopping? Comparison specs here:

    I've used my xrc8 many times now and it has worked great every time. I've used it to pull out ex's, jeeps, and a land rover.

    I added a Solid differential cover to replace my leaky stock one and replaced all the shocks with Rancho RS5000's. I really like the diff cover, very stout!

    New Offroad PARK in Allentown, PA

    This looks promising. I'm near Reading so its really close. I e-mailed the address on the site as the application form link is not working.

    This is what happens with a trailer on black ice.

    Sounds like quite a ride. Real scary, glad you're OK.

    I have yet to use mine. The thread that sold me on the winch is found at pirate4x4.com: http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?t=590833&highlight=smittybilt+xrc8

    My bumper build

    Bumper looks great! I also mounted my solenoid just behind the grill on the passenger side. You can even plug in through the grill. If you look close in the picture you can just see the solenoid peeking out behind the grill:

    I'd like to hit RC, not sure if I can make it to Carlisle. Looks like fun though.

    Its all custom BBB (built by BenS). Special thanks goes out to marktaylor69 who gave me the steel plate I used 6 years ago. That was the day we all went to RC - Blee got a flat, and Mark had tranny problems.

    I finally finished my bumper and mounted my new winch on it. The bumper is all quarter inch plate. Enjoy!

    bumper fabricators in springfield va

    The distance from outer frame rail to outer frame rail is about 32 inches. The body actually sits almost perpendicular to the end of the frame rail. The distance from the first body mount to the end of the frame rail is 6.5 inches.
