    Add new rims and Subwoofers to my 2002 Explorer

    you can always do a search and find most your answers.. but if you have the stock sub, i have seen people put an aftermarket woofer in its place. Also another cool thing is to build a shallow box and put the sub/s and amp in the rear storage so its hidden and you keep all your cargo room. If...

    Better off with stock sized tires?

    bigger tires will mess with alot... suspension, trans, etc sounds like your better off staying w a smaller tire, you can fit 265s w no lift and wont have too much negative affect. as soon as I went to 285s power steering started acting up and I def. needed to regear

    Really f'd up today...

    I like the x and all but its just not capable enough for anything other than street and LIGHT offroad. Plan is to get the new truck, keep the x until i get home, fix and sell and then get a bad ass xj for CHEAAAAAP. Only reason im doing it this way is bc im so close to being out of the army i...

    Tire rub WTF!!!

    Yeah i went ahead and trimmed the fenders a little bit... no rubbing on the street anymore but im sure theyll still catch on something offroad.... not a big deal, not cutting into the tires or anything so Ill live. Probably gonna see the X soon for a diesel and have an old XJ for playin

    Rear air bags (suspension)

    i dont believe theyd work, 140k is alot on original struts, id change em out with a set of kyb, monroe, struttex, or rancho quicklifts if you want a little bit of lift

    2002-2005 FAQ regarding lifts, tires, etc

    it will prob rub a little at full lock, ive got 3"BL 2.5" spacers and 285-75s and catch just a little bit of the inner fender plastic (pulling in a parking spot, etc.) and when its "flexing" the tires are too big for the wheel wells but it doesnt bother me too much. BTW your gonna need a 16"+...
