    Prefer manual or automatic trans for wheelin'?

    you just have to learn to drive :burnout: automatic transmissions can overheat, and if you smash your auto tranny, you're all done. even if you smash your manual tranny and lose all the gear oil, you can still crawl back in first gear. and plus, you cant run 4.0:1 atlas t-case with an...

    ranger and explorer tranny... same?

    does an 88-00 ranger have the same manual transmission as the first gen explorer eqiupped with a manual transmission? the reason i am curious, is because B&M makes a shifter for an 88-00 ranger with either a 4 or 6 cylinder, and i want one for my 94 sport!

    Solved Lifts and Max tire sizes

    Would 29x11.50 inch tires mounted on 15x8 inch rims fit on a stock 94 Ford Explorer Sport?
  21. F

    what about 29x11.5s?

    ok so you think that a 29x11.50 tire would fit fine with no rub on a 15x8 inch rim?
  22. F

    what about 29x11.5s?

    bad??? i think it would look mean, i would have an extra 3 inch of meat stickin out each side of my truck, and 10 inch deep dish rims, that thing would like P.I.M.P.! but anyways, you think it would work? has anyone had 10 inch rims on there explorer? i dont care what tire size, i just wanna...

    what about 29x11.5s?

    ok so i read the tire fitment guide, and it said the max tire i can fit on a stock 94 explorer is 30x9.50, what about 29x11.50s? mickey thompson makes some, i think its the same as a 295-60-15 metric tire, oh yeah, i wanna mount it on a 10 inch rim too.. would that fit without fender trimming...

    has anyone succesfully installed 295/50-15s on 15x10 inch rims on the front of a 91-94 explorer? i think it would look mean with 295/50s all around, im just not sure if they are too wide to clear the front wheel wells when you turn the wheel

    I need a good place to mount an amp in my sport.

    hey thats a great idea to put it in the storage bin bay! you know what would look really cool thouhg? if you cut a peice of plexi-glass to fit over the opening... maybe mount a small fan inside there since there would be no air flow over the amp, i think that would like pretty mint though...

    questions on 15X10s

    "I run a 31x12.5 thornbird on 15x10 with a 3 inch lift. And the only trimming I did was about 1 inch oval on the front spoiler. And had no rubbing at all even at flex. So you should be fine with the set up you want. I like the wide stance too." What is the backspacing of your rims?

    dual voice coil subs

    well the description of the sub says that it can handle 400 watts RMS. it is really no different than having 2 individual subs. so can you hook up 2 subs that can handle 200 watts each @ a 4 ohms, in parallel (which would present a 2 ohm load to the amp) to an amp that produces 400 watts RMS at...

    dual voice coil subs

    i'm confused on how to properly wire dual voice coil subs... im looking at this DVC sub from Rockford Fosgate. it has 2 coils that can handle 200 watts rms @ 4 ohms each. obviously i could get a 2 channal amp the produces 200wx2 @ 4 ohms and wire each coil up to each channel... but im not sure...

    what size tires?

    im pretty sure this would work, but i thought i would ask before i had to find out the hard way... will 33 inch tires fit under a 94 sport with a 6 inch lift, without any modifications to the wheel wells? and will running 15x10 inch rims and 12.5-13.5 inch wide tires arouse any problems as far...
