    Lift kits for 5th gen. Explorer

    I was running 265/65/18 which is about a 31 with no issues with this lift. I went back to factory for fuel economy for now but next time I change I was considering 255/75/18 which would be a 32.5. Definitely think it would fit without rubbing. Every inch you go up on the tire only takes half an...

    2016 Limited violent vibration on acceleration

    Did you find a resolution? Having what seems to be this exact issue. I removed the driveshaft and it got worse. It feels like it’s front passenger side on my car.

    2016 Steering issues - recall related?

    Appreciate all the comments. I did check the rear suspension and the lower ball joint and the lower control arm bushings. The only thing I see is the is my driver front axle has looseness. My appointment is finally coming up Saturday. I’m going to just ask them to check for open recalls and do...

    2016 Steering issues - recall related?

    I saw a post about that from a couple years ago. Not sure how to check them. I will have to see if I can look that up on the tube. I was curious if this could be related to the electronic power steering recall? What we’re people experiencing with that?

    2016 Steering issues - recall related?

    Thanks for the reply but this is the steering up front doing it. The steering wheel will shift so that to drive straight the wheel is at a 45 degree angle. To drive straight and then shift back to straight again totally at random while driving.

    2016 Steering issues - recall related?

    Hello! I am having some issues with steering lately. While driving the wheel will randomly veer left or right. I noticed that there was some play in the inner tierod ends so I replaced those and after replacing I noticed there is still play in my front axle shaft driver side which lets the...

    Lift kits for 5th gen. Explorer

    After doing my lift/tires I also got it aligned. I took it to good year and they could not get it within spec the first time because they said that one of the shocks had been turned during installation. Because they could not align it they didn't charge me so I didn't have to pay for it 2 times...

    Cutting fenders

    Well did you cut them? I have 31.5 inch tires on a spacer kit. I saw one company is actually making larger springs for our explorers now but I have not heard of anyone actually buying them. They are in the lift kit forum. I have not cut the fenders on mine but I did cut the wheel well pastic and...

    Lift kits for 5th gen. Explorer

    So I just finished my Lift. I also added 2" spacers and dropped on a set of 265/65/18 Cooper AT3 4S which are 31.5"x10.5" tires. Thought I would share with you. The photos don't really do the finished look justice in my opinion. 3in TRUXXX front spacers (I also had to do the back which I think...

    Directions& photos to trim lower fasica & prevent scraping

    In that thread, you posted a link to this one on how to remove it. 🥲 not as much interested in trimming. I want it gone. Mine is actually broken and looks like hell.

    Directions& photos to trim lower fasica & prevent scraping

    these instructions are gone. Can anyone assist with this? I was able to find the bolts in the front but I can’t see the ones on the sides, does all that need to come off to remove it?

    Lift kits for 5th gen. Explorer

    Your truck is sweet. 30” tire is a nice size. Once I wear out my current set I’m going with 265/65/18 which is a 31.5”. The sema explorer was running 32” tire with some rubbing so I’m pretty sure a 31.5 should fit ok. Did you notice any difference in gas mileage with the lift and/or bigger tires?

    Lift kits for 5th gen. Explorer

    I’m not sure they will fit together since with the truxxx kit is doing the same thing, but if you are paying someone, you should get it all done together. I’m not against you trying, love to see the results. I have the truxxx 3” in my basement waiting for some warm weather. I wish they would...

    Lift kits for 5th gen. Explorer

    Sweet. I bought the truxxx lift last week. It’s cold af here right now so I can’t install it. I was looking at tire and wheel packages, custom offsets sells 16” steel wheels that say they fit the explorer... not sure that’s true. I have a buddy with an older Jeep and I am going to test fit his...

    Lift kits for 5th gen. Explorer

    There are plenty of hitch tire carriers. I have looked at them but I’m not prepared to pay $1000 for a tire carrier. I saw a guy take one of These and the buy something like This and put the 2 together. Actually someone is selling them that was Now. It swings down instead of to the side, so a...
