    manual hub question

    I just bought a set of warn ones today, very nice. I blew my auto hubs up in a cornfield and to fix the would have been around 400 bucks, but for about $250 I got manual ones which should be ten times better than the binding and clicking of auto hubs. Not only that but to unlock the auto ones I...

    What is the biggest lift I can put on a1993 ex without doing an axel swap

    3" lift Today I just put a 3 inch lift on. It's looks great. Lots higher than the stock explorer. I decided to put it on when I broke the factory shackle for the rear mount on the leaf spring. The lift was cheaper than putting the factory shackles back on as I only paid around $40.00 for it...

    What is the biggest lift I can put on a1993 ex without doing an axel swap

    What is the biggest lift I can put on a1993 ex without doing an axel swap

    Drive shaft and gearing I think Im gunna stick with the 6" for the explorer. But would I need to change the drive shaft to replace the stock one, I would imagine the distance from the transmission to rear end would be greater. And would I have to change the gear ratios of the transmission when...

    door open?

    Im thinking there is a short allowing the electricity to pass between the two wires causing the light top come on, or, your switch could be broken and leaving the power running through the switch all the time. Best I can say is get a continuity tester.
