    New Aluminum Radiator

    It’s held up awesome, never gets above half way, put over 5k towing miles on it with our camper. Of which 2k was in the middle of this summer with not a single issue. Very happy with it and glad I didn’t go the plastic tank route again!

    How to: FINALLY GOOD TOW MIRRORS!!!!!

    Nice job, I’ve been wanting to find something similar that would fit but haven’t broken down and tried yet. I was leaning more towards just an F-150 mirror instead of those massive mirrors, but glad you figured something out that works!

    Max Tire Size on 18" 2008 Explorer Limited.

    I have 265/65/18 BFG All-Terrain T/A KO2's with 2"wheel spacers and I have only a small amount of rubbing.

    Tire size options?

    considering I have 265/65/18 BFG All-Terrain T/A KO2's that are 31.5" tall with only a slight rub at full turn, you should be able to do up to 275/65/17 which is only 31.1" tall.

    Towing Mirrors for 4th Gen

    If there was any tow mirror that might have the best chance at being retro fitted it would be the 2007 Expedition tow mirrors. The plastic base/mounting piece looks similar in design to the 4th Gen Explorer just much bigger. The vertical measurement of the base/mount area (closest to the...

    New Aluminum Radiator

    So, here is what I had to do, took me a week with some delayed delivery on some parts from Amazon but finally got it done tonight… The fittings on the new radiator for the transmission lines are 5/8-18 female with an inverted flare. Depending on what you want to do here you can get a 5/8-18...

    New Aluminum Radiator

    Thanks Paul, I pulled the radiator out already before to replace a cracked plastic radiator support piece so I'm familiar with the process.

    New Aluminum Radiator

    Good news, I got the radiator and it looks awesome. Bad news, the transmission line inlets are not 1/2" but rather 3/8" so I might have to modify the transmission lines involving putting some AN fittings on the factory lines or getting an adapter. Will keep you posted.

    BFGoodrich LT265/65/R18 KO2 installed on 2010 Explorer Limited.

    I did this same set up except I also wedded 2”titan spacers to bump it out a little more. Probably should have gone with the 1 1/2” spacers as I do have a little rub when fully cranked one way or the other. I trimmed a little off the running board in the wheel well and the inner fender piece...

    New Aluminum Radiator

    I'm guessing its just a plastic cap over the holes, I'll let you know but it they are in fact permanently covered I'll probably be sending it back.

    New Aluminum Radiator

    That was the main reason i wanted to go with the all aluminum one to get away from that design. hopefully everything lines up, can't find any reviews on people buying these and how they worked. I'll report back after install.

    New Aluminum Radiator

    Thanks yeah i figured that was the case, just wanted to see what others thought. No issues with current radiator keeping it cool even with the slow leak I've had for a while. I just got this one off amazon - Amazon.com: ALLOYWORKS 2 Row All Aluminum Radiator Fits For 2006-2007 Ford Explorer...

    New Aluminum Radiator

    Looking to replace my radiator as well as the thermostat while I'm at it. I have an 07 Explorer with 167k miles, and I tow a pop up camper about 2500 lbs, is there any benefit to a 4 row aluminum radiator over a 2 row radiator? Thanks for any info.

    New BFG Tires

    nothing-that's one thing I was super concerned about, that and hitting the top control arms, but they have plenty of clearance. I can take more pics tonight at full turn and post. I thought I might need spacers for clearance, but I don't think I will waste my money on them since it works fine...

    New BFG Tires

    After weeks of reading everyone posts about the largest tire that can go on an 07 Ex, and being cautiously optimistic that they were going to fit with no issues, I broke down and got the 265/65/18 BFG All Terrains, and had them put on yesterday. AND DAMN DO THEY LOOK NICE!! So happy I trusted...

    Max Tire Size 08 Explorer 18"

    Wise guy-what tires did you specifically use? I'm looking for some that are a little more aggressive... Terra Grapplers, Wranglers, BFG all terrains on the stock 18's that markoesc has above in his pics. I see granadojl and marcoesc said they put that size on, but after looking under my 07...

    Anyone have pictures of their 4th gen Ex with the stock chrome 18's with 265/65/18 tires on them?

    2007 Eddie Bauer 4x4

    Thanks for the info, I've been so hesitant on doing it afraid of the rubbing. You have any pictures?
  25. B

    2007 Eddie Bauer 4x4

    And you have no issues with rubbing on the inside next to the suspension? Do you have any wheel spacers or is it just really close inside on the front?

    tire fitment question

    mountain man or wise guy you have any pictures of your rides with these tires on them? I'm in the market and can't believe 265/65/18's will fit with out rubbing on the inside of the front tires.

    Size up on the tires 18"s

    you guys running 265/65/18 on stock 18 inch wheels have no rubbing issue on the inside up front with the suspension or anything? I just looked today and with the stock 235/65/18 there seems to be less than an inch of spare space back there. I was thinking I might need at least a 1 inch wheel...

    2007 Eddie Bauer 4x4

    Chance-What size tire did you end up going with? I am looking into this same situation now. I would like to go to 265/60/18 on my stock 18 inch wheels.

    opinion 0n which grille to buy for 2007 explorer

    Any pics of what you ended up going with for your grill? I have a similar explorer carbon and gold (eddie bower ed) and prefer the billet look but can't find a billet grille that will allow me to cut out the center portion. I hate the overlay look because I think the original grille will be...

    upgrades for a 2007 sport trac

    Sorry just to clarify, the knubs I was talking about having to cutoff are actually on the intake plenum. they help to line the TB up when you are putting it on, otherwise they serve no purpose. I was working with the sale REP at AirRaid/PowerAid (Mark Fowler- 602-652-9727) to give me a...

    upgrades for a 2007 sport trac

    That is he correct AirRaid part number that I used. There will be some plastic knubs on the TB that you will have to clip off in order for the spacer to sit correctly and I had to go buy some different bolts than what they provided because what was provided wasn't short enough. Other than...

    Help-lots of codes

    It's all the electronics within the transmission. You can't just replace a solenoid or the pieces individually, the whole thing has to be replaced at once. I'm sure a lot of it is labor being they have to disassemble some of the transmission and such.

    Yep, been running great, they charged $2800 to replace.:thumbdwn:

    Help-lots of codes

    Well I got the Ex back last night and its running smoother than ever, still has the TB spacer on there and no issues so far! I can promise you the first FORD dealership will be receiving a letter from me regarding the fact that they were not able to pin-point diagnose this issue like the...

    They said mine is up to date on the TSB so I guess I have no other choice but to go with this and see what happens. It will be done tomorrow so I'll keep you posted.

    ok a different FORD dealer just came back and said the Mechatronics needs to be replaced in the Ex and that is what is causing the problems. does this sounds familiar to anyone?

    Help-lots of codes

    So instead of anyone actually providing any solid leads or help which is what I thought these forums were good for you are all just going to blast your opinions about the use of TB spacers. I was hoping for some actual help on how to fix the problems my Ex is having. Thanks.
  39. B

    Help-lots of codes

    I'll take a look at that, it didn't seem like anything got stretched to me because there was plenty of slack in the wiring and lines from what I saw. As far as retracting what I said about adding the TB spacer, I mean it worked for a day, why things what haywire after I'm still determined to...

    Help-lots of codes

    I don't see why everyone is so against the spacers on these forums, I noticed a significant increase in throttle response immediately. I've had them on past vehicles as well and noticed the difference. Maybe its a vehicle by vehicle case, but I can't imagine PowerAid would continue wasting...
