    Duner's 6" Lift Kit Group Buy Thread

    I reached out to the person who claimed to have bought the files, including in an explorer group. He deleted the posts about having the files, blocked me on Facebook and left all the explorer groups. I simply asked about the file and if he would sell and that was the response I got. After doing...

    Duner's 6" Lift Kit Group Buy Thread

    So I have a semi update. I’ve found someone on Facebook that has supposedly bought and produced the CAD file. I have reached out to him with no response so far. Fingers crossed

    Duner's 6" Lift Kit Group Buy Thread

    Every time someone bumps these threads i have a glimmer of hope Duner has come back and is ready to make some money and sell these things. Then my hope is crushed when I see a newbie has bumped a 7 year old thread.

    Ranger vs. Explorer FRONT Bumper

    I have been wondering this for a long time, as everyone says that the ranger body lift bumper brackets work. But that also raises the question of when it does bolt up will the modifications needed to make it fit the grille/headlights/wheel wells make it more cost effective to just build from...

    Dual exhaust with a Flowmaster?

    Best bet is single in single out. Put a Y after it goes over the axel as the space, as far as I can tell, is limited.

    My halo project.

    Saturday night I was bored and it was cold and rainy. So I pulled the headlights off to reseal them. 12 years and 115,000 miles they were clean but starting to condensate on wet mornings. As soon as I pulled them apart and started looking I got an idea. Went out to the garage, and found my...

    any one know of a possible twin turbo for and 03 explorer xlt 4.0

    Anything is possible with deep pockets. I think you need to take a step back and check your budget and your goals. Then figure out if an explorer is a good starting point as a base for your project.

    2003 XLT with Cooper Discoverer ATP 265/75/16

    Got mine from discount tire last year for $500 shipped plus $100 mail in rebate. For what I paid I can't complain. I do a lot of highway driving . As far as wear goes I would give them a 10/10. In the snow if say eh 6/10. And they are louder then expected but not bad. Overall I'd say I got a...

    SCT SF3 tire size question

    So in my wifes EX the door sticker says it came with 235/75-16s. It now has 265/75-16s.
