    High Mileage STA

    Yeah I think you're right. I called and there is a deposit on the STA anyway. I want a truck but not really practical for what I do. I think I am going to look into a small SUV like an Escape or Equinox. Thanks for the input!!

    High Mileage STA

    Hey I haven't been on here in a few years as I traded my 05 Explorer for a 11 Fusion. Looking into getting a truck and keep going back to a STA. I drive around 20-25K per year for work and wanting to get rid of my Fusion with 136K on it. Question is how are the STA's with high mileage? My 05...

    Looking for a 3rd row SUV

    Well a neighbor of ours is going to let us drive their Santa Fe this week and we'll go look at the Explorer over the weekend. We've already drove our friends Durango Citadel and it was damn nice but had a 5-speed.

    Looking for a 3rd row SUV

    Thanks for the responses so far. I also just realized I posted this in the Modified section and not the Stock. I'll see about getting that moved haha. The car seats today take up so much room! We have a 9 month old and finally put him in a convertible car seat, so it helped a little but nobody...

    Looking for a 3rd row SUV

    Well we bought the wife a 2013 Escape last year thinking it would be enough room with a child. Well after we had our boy April 2014, this car is SMALL!! We are looking to upgrade to a bigger SUV. I had an 05 Explorer and not drive a 11 Fusion. We are looking a 3 options so far - Explorer...

    Center Console

    I sold the truck 2 years ago but it held up well. As far as a steering wheel there might be an issue with you always having your hands on it. If you're just doing the center you should be fine. I would take your time and do good prep work and it should hold up fine!

    Canuck motorsports lowering springs and mounty

    Sorry I am wrong. I have the Ground Force springs which do lower it 1.6" all around. I had Belltechs but I traded them for the GFs. To many problems with the Belltechs cause they drop it 2" in front and 2.5" in back. They make it hard to align the camber.

    Canuck motorsports lowering springs and mounty

    They are 1.6" on all four corners. They work with 2WD or 4WD. Go with KYB struts.

    Projector headlights and HIDs

    I have a question. I am trying to get my brother some HIDs for his bday next week (2006 Ford Ranger). However, he has the aftermarket projector/halo headlights and they do not take the stock bulbs. Does anyone know what size bulbs are in these aftermarket headlights and is it possible to...

    80% of 2005 Explorer Transmissions Fail

    I am with a few of you on here. I'm at 142K on my 2005 and it's still running strong. However, once every few months on a long trip after about an hour of driving there will be a big clunk at highway speeds but that is the only issue I have had. My mom just got rid of her 1996 Explorer with...

    Belltech / Ground Force springs

    I never had the GF springs. I wanted to get them but a guy was cleaning out his warehouse and I picked up the Belltech's for $80 (brand new in the box). I don't feel like my struts are gone but I do have 140,000 miles on my truck. I wasn't going to keep the truck but I think I might because...

    How to: Mountaineer Cluster installed - Pics, problems, fixes, walk-thru WARNING! 35 pics!

    I don't have a cluster yet but you have a good point to just remove the bulbs. I don't know why I put the 2wd vs 4wd question because what I was really wondering was will a V8 cluster work with a V6 vehicle?

    How to: Mountaineer Cluster installed - Pics, problems, fixes, walk-thru WARNING! 35 pics!

    Does anyone know if it matters if the Mountaineer is a 2WD or 4WD? I'm thinking about doing this and want to be sure before I pick one up. I have an 2WD 05 Ex with the message center.

    Guys sitting on 20s, come in!

    Looks great Docked Wages! I just bought new tires for mine because I didn't have the money for rims yet. If I end up keeping mine for awhile I will finally get some wheels. Excellent decision on style!!

    Has anyone put Adrenalin Wheels on a stock Sport Trac?

    Looks great! Those wheels are getting so hard to find. I just bought some new stock tires but I am always on the look out for them. Nice choice!

    Staggered 20's

    Well further research on the chart Josh sent me said the rear wheels with 275/45 will stick out 1.3" more then the stock 245/65-17. So I went out and did some measurements. It is a no go. If I wasn't planning on lower it in the future they might work. Oh well....on to my search for some...

    Staggered 20's

    No I have a 2wd so I'm not to worried about the size difference. I am also now looking at another set of the same wheels but only 10" in the back in Silver (so I don't have to get them finished). The guy wants $600 but I'm trying to get him down a little more.

    Staggered 20's

    Well the chart says they should fit. And the 275/45-20 will work with the rim. The rim and tire are about the same width so it should help with fender tire clearance. Suspension is 100% free from obstruction and the wheel will stick out about 1.3" farther than stock. I can get these wheels...

    Staggered 20's

    I understand. I typically would test fit them first but they are about 2 hours away and i was going to have my brother pick them up for me before he came to see me in a couple days.

    Nobody has any input? I have to decide by tomorrow if I want these wheels.

    Staggered 20's

    Does anyone know if the 20x10.5 rear wheels will fit on the Explorer? I found a good deal on a new set of bullitt wheels. Fronts are 20x9" with a 24mm offset and the rears are 20x10.5 with a 27mm offset. I am thinking 275/45-20 on all four corners. Any advise?

    Adrenalin Style 18's??

    Just have to but do they make this style in 18's? I emailed this guy in this ad - http://miami.craigslist.org/brw/pts/2309542600.html and asked him if he was mistaken and meant to put 20" wheels. He emailed back and said they are 18's. I have searched all over the internet for 18" versions...

    Photos 3rd gen pic's

    Well here is what mine could have looked like this afternoon. Went to check these wheels out this morning. Test fit them even though they had pitting on 2 wheels. The guy went down to $500 but I didn't think it was worth it. Looked damn good though I thought haha

    Belltech / Ground Force springs

    I never went to pick them up. It was 3 hours away. I had a reason to go over there besides but it got cancelled. I can give you their number if your interested to buy them.

    Opinions Please!!

    Yes they will be 275/45-20s. The tires on the wheels in the photos were for a Mustang.

    Opinions Please!!

    I wanted to get your opinions before I go see if these fit my Ex. They need to be refinished but there under $300 for 20's. My issue is I need new tires for my 17's and I figured if I can find a decent set of 20's then the 20" tires will always be cheaper to replace than the 17's. Could be...

    Opinions Please!!

    I know. I think it is ridiculous the 245/65-17s cost $140+ and 275/45-20s start at $120. It all seems to come back to supply and demand. The 17s are on a lot of SUVs now so they know people are going to need them.
