    I can take some measurements so you can see if they will hit if you want.

    Bump... Hooks are gone. Can't believe the shackles are around. Used warriors used to fly off the forum when they popped up. Is my price high?

    Varsity's 2000 Explorer Sport

    Looks good. I miss hitting the trails in mine. The sports do well offroad. You'll be addicted now.

    I still pop in here every now and then. Thought I'd drop a pic of my newly redone f150... The rundown: 1994 f150 5.0 auto 4x4. 113k miles. Purchase price 1000 bucks running and inspected... then the repairs and new parts started to add up... New parts include: Bedsides Fenders Cab corners...

    Sounds good. I cannot promise I can get it in the mail on Saturday, I am going to be on the river all day. Monday I can have em out. I'll send you a PM on Friday, or you can send me a PM then.

    Ok, both are boxed and ready to roll. 12 bucks flat rate medium box for shipping. Lets call it 45 bucks shipped on the shackles and 30 shipped on the tow hooks. Paypal.

    I will measure them on Monday, I am out of town for the weekend. They are roughly the same so I doubt you will see much difference between the 2 lift wise... I bet I can get them in a flat rate box that ships for like 12-13 bucks... I think thats the price of the medium flat rate box...

    Reading back over this thread was depressing. I miss the ol' girl. Hopefully she is still alive and ticking. I saw I had a lot of negative comments about how it ran and sounds it made, but they probably were all exaggerated a tad. Overall it was an awesome car. Minimal work and money needed put...

    I'll even throw a fresh coat of black rustoleum on those shackles for the buyer. I bet I can get the pair into a flatrate box so shipping shouldn't be bad...

    Its treating me decent. Miss the Burgh. I'm just up here for a little bit finishing my f150... Yes, never did get around to putting those shackles on my ex, but man they are well built...

    Since I sold my explorer I guess it is time I clear out my pile of parts... Feel free to make an offer, I could use the money on my project f150, or to fix the fresh bumper damage on my 2012 focus:( 1) Tow hooks -SOLD 2) Lift shackles- SOLD 3) Stock front marker lights- These got scratched...

    "Red Bull"

    I loved the look of my safari bar but it got so smashed up offroad. I bent the tubing on it, jacked up a bracket and pushed it into my bumper. It lowered my approach angle too much...

    Buy, Sell, Trade, Lift, or ??? Advice.

    I went and got a 2012 focus and sold the explorer (I still have a 4x4 truck). I kind of agree with the save the money route but the MPG savings saves me $90 a month in gas making it more viable. I'm not sure how many "toys" you like in a car but you can probably find a focus se with the sport...

    So, I was shopping for a bike..

    Excellent tips for bike shopping! All of our bikes are used purchases for the most parts. I've never rode a 29 before... Also if you are planning on getting a bit more "hardcore" in your riding I'd get a frame that is a little lower cut so that top frame rail is at a downward angle. Last thing...

    Explorer is gone tomorrow for 2400. Fair price for both parties I feel. I could have squeaked more without the check engine light and the squeak but it needs to move sooner than later with the new car. Hopefully she will treat the new owner as well as she has treated me. I'll be sure to inform...

    It seems my time as come... Yesterday I bought a 2012 focus hatch. Titanium trim, yellow blaze tri-coat paint, all the toys except active park assist. Really nice car. I hope to in a few years get another ex to build and play with unless my girl talks me into a cherokee like she wants...

    I didn't know you sold your ex. I like the idea of the rt magnum. It fits my bill but they are hard to find with the hemi at a reasonable cost and i don't like the idea of owning a dodge. The whole car seems cheaply made to me.

    I am near the end of my relationship with the explorer. I'm looking for something newer. I really will miss the explorer and the fun of going offroad but I want something better on gas. I drive 25 miles highway to work each way 5 days a week. At 17mpg that could be a lot better with a newer car...

    Squeal ??? Wtf is it??

    I will have to take a peak. I was thinking maybe a starter noise. A loose bolt would be nice... then again how did they tighten it? Did they have to drop the transmission?

    Squeal ??? Wtf is it??

    Mine makes the noise just after the motor has started not while cranking. It only happens when the motor is cold, never when it is warm. My issue is definitely not a grind, it is a squeal/screech noise. It happens every single time I start the car cold. I know it is not a belt/pulley.

    Squeal ??? Wtf is it??

    Hope so. I have also developed an exhaust leak just north of the drivers side cat. Not sure if it is related. Also have a CEL for lean o2 on bank 1. My o2 sensor was loose in the pipe. Tightened it down but it still needs replaced. When I did that is right about when I heard the squeal.

    Squeal ??? Wtf is it??

    I have a similar issue... Just started. It comes from under the car near the bell housing area. Only when I first start the car when it is cold never when it is warm. Been doing it for a week now.

    The city has a massive metro area. Lots of suburbs. I do know the US national whitewater center is there. I'm going to be checking that out for sure.

    Moving to Charlotte

    This Saturday I'm packing my things and headed south to Charlotte, NC. I got a job teaching 8th grade American History. Didn't want to move bu there are no jobs up north. With that being said who all is from that area. Any tips for me? I already have a place lined up. Signing the lease on...

    Keeper's Explorer. Take two.

    Good to hear. The longer I have the Ranchos the more I realize how stiff they are. I have plenty of control but i feel every little bump. I want Bilsteins for my truck but it has 6 shocks I don't think my bank account can handle that expense ha.

    Doe Valley in Windber, PA September 6-8

    May or may not be around here for that. I have an interview in Charlotte NC this week, and my gf already got a job there so it may be a year until I'm back up this way. I shall see though.

    OffTrac's New Purchases

    Wonder how the powdercoat will hold up. If you use it like I do it will be all scuffed up quickly. I was going to have him do mine in stainless but opted for raw steel and I bedlined it. You will love it. I have had mine for years now. It has caused a dent in my ifs cross member but that's...

    young kid seeking advice from smart elders :)

    How many miles are on the explorer? That could factor in. You won't have much spare time to fix things on it as well. I think I'd get a 4-7k dollar car, if you can pull off more $ go for it though. Something with lower miles and good mpgs. Plus its awesome having a second car. I'm probably...

    Central PA Day of Wheeling July 13th

    Sometimes a small group is better though. More wheeling. Big groups move slow, more people get stuck, more waiting. Wish I could make it but I have a bunch of people coming over this weekend for an "anything that floats" contest. Todd, you probably will see the pictures on facebook. Hoping to...

    My 2003 engine at 115,000 miles is about to die.

    Well obviously anything running is worth more money. Even if it doesn't run great people would rather see it running. If the shredding belt issue is cheap to fix I would imagine you would benefit from that come sale time. Did they say why it failed their test?

    I will let you know soon hopefully. My plans for that weekend are up in the air still. I'd love to attend though.
