    Indoor lights stuck on

    probably your tailgate or tailgate glass, i had this problem and even though my tailgate seemed like it was closed, the drivers side latch wasnt completely clicking in, give it a good hard shove and see if the light goes out. I ended up swapping out the drivers side tailgate latch with a...

    I'm sure they sell brand new ones on e-bay, might not say the exact same thing as the stickers you have now though. Cant access e-bay from work to check though, sorry

    I feel a kick when I pull away from a stop

    I've got a 1999 Eplorer and since i got it a few years ago I've had the same problem, its got about a million miles on it but it didnt when i got it. The problem has never gotten better or worse so I never had any concern. Feels like a tranny mount to me, or who knows.

    Just did my commute to work, looks like the tach consistently reqds 800rpm higher than the factory tach. My next step is to call autometer and see what they say.

    5" monster tach problem

    I still have the factory tach connected yes. Hooked it up to this factory tach wire, just following what other people did on this forum and in a ranger forum. I will have to look on my way to work in the morning if it is a constant 1000 rpm higher or if its variable

    Post up your audio system!

    Ya, I make boxes, made both of mine for my truck, 4x15"s wouldnt really be a problem, just take up the entire space and probably be as tall as the bottom of the rear windows (guessing) Every different type of sub requires a specific size box.

    My new roof rack with lights

    Yup, built it myself. And also, since these pics, all the u blots are facing downwards and trimmed off. You can see it in the last couple pictures. Also put a small piece of rubber in between the rack and factory roof rack rails. The thing doesnt budge, I've tried yaking it back and forth...

    Is there any muffler that makes a 4.0L SOHC sound good?

    I have dual cherrybomb glasspacks that i think sound amazing, cut the exhaust right off after the cats and welded on 2 side by side cherrybombs that dump out in front of the rear axle

    2nd generation console

    yes, pretty sure. I think some of them had an optional instrument display at the front of the console below the HVAC controls. (not sure what year that was, might be 3rd gen) But all the 2nd gen explorers have the same console

    RAPTOR Grill for Explorers?

    should be easy enough to just make one. Take your factory grille, cut out everything except the surround, make some letters out of MDF, fiberglass everything to seal it all in and paint, bingo bango

    Help! Headlights blinking!

    ya? that would make the driving lights flash? The fog lights in the bumper dont flash or anything. I was thinking something to do with the DRL module. If it is the fog light relay, how do i test that, is there another relay that i can switch it with? Wiper motor relay maybe?

    HELP! Headlights, Tail lights dash lights not working

    So not long ago I wired in a set of auxillary marker lights and spliced them into the headlight corner marker lights (not the signal lights) so they would come on at the same time. Some of my wiring must have come loose and shorted out the circuit. Now, my headlights work, high and low beams...
