    For Sale 5th Gen Amerihood - Functional Ram Air

    Hey, Thanks! I got the grille off of Ebay, just look up your year Raptor grille, it will pop up! The OEM one is a bit of a pain to get off but easy to put back on.

    For Sale 5th Gen Amerihood - Functional Ram Air

    Hey All, I recently traded in my Ex so I have the Amerihood Functional Ram Air hood up for grabs. Ideally, local pick up would be great, its a freight ship so Im not totally interested in arranging that. The hood is not painted, gel coated but does have a wrap on it. Easily take that off and...

    My 2016 Explorer Sport - Project Wanderlust

    Same.. I almost convinced him to sell them to me but at one point to continue to develop them but he for some reason stopped responding. Hasn't replied since and I haven't seen him post it on IG in a long time so I think he did end up selling it.

    My stereo is possessed-changes channels randomly

    I think you have the same Sony system that I have, i think... Mine did this, where it would change things randomly so I installed an update and it fixed it. Hasn't had an issue since. Reset might work too.

    What did you do to your 5th Gen?

    I put that same bumper guard on mine and it does nothing to protect the edge which is where most of the stuff hits lol Looks cool tho!

    What did you do to your 5th Gen?

    I keep mine in that same area. Ive got a short compact one that fits right in there.

    Strut issue

    When you are turning, do you feel the vibration?

    New exhaust and Stereo install on my 2014

    Nice work on the stereo install. Interesting exhaust color. Which mufflers did you use? Do you get any flutter at idle without baffled tips?

    Is it possible to recalibrate the Explorer transmission to the same settings as the PIU transmission?

    Ive heard guys with the NA motor get pretty close to stock sport feel in the ol' butt dyno on the Livernois tune.

    Is it possible to recalibrate the Explorer transmission to the same settings as the PIU transmission?

    I think your best bet would be to pick up a pedal commander. Though I am sure someone out there knows how to program it.

    Cutting fenders

    Well, you wont find any suspension lifts other than the spacer lifts you read about.. There are no other lift options. I run a 17inch wheel with a 4 inch backspace on 265/70r17 all terrain tires. I had mud tires for a while but they are just too heavy. I have the Traxda spacer lift. I had to...

    Help on base stereo upgrade

    HA, I missed that part about where you installed it lol Yeah, they are super high priced. Its a good spot to consider your next custom box tho IMO.

    Help on base stereo upgrade

    Nicely done! There is a nice JL Audio stealth box that goes in that area.. Its for a 10 inch but it hits hard from what I've heard. As for your battery code, how old is your battery? With the new added components, might want to consider upgrading it.

    Help Me - Losing my mind!! Sony Headunit Bezel Cracked

    I dont know for sure but based on what I can tell, it looks like there might be a difference between, "with or without" the Sony System. I didn't realize you could get the big screen without the Sony system. I cant say for sure but seems like you are on the right path.. Crazy how within just a...

    Help Me - Losing my mind!! Sony Headunit Bezel Cracked

    Im not totally sure but as with most newer models, most swapping parts isn't going to be easy. Ford makes small changes that make things not compatible.. In this case, I have a feeling you will run into a wiring harness issue. Again, Im not totally sure and I haven't seen anyone do this swap but...

    Mods for wife's 2014 Explorer

    Peter posted up some good ones that others have done custom work to. Any aftermarket one for the 2011-2015 that I have seen, aren't all that cool.. The cool ones are the ones the guys that have posted here that have done some custom work. But that involves baking, separating, and tapping in...

    Tow Package for 2019 Limited - 4WD

    I haven't read that anyone actually did it, granted I could have missed that post but if you do, hopefully we can get an update on how it all went?

    Tow Package for 2019 Limited - 4WD

    Exactly. It just ends up being too costly money and other factors, you know? So, for me anyway.. I stick to bike racks and a single motorcycle trailer just to be safe.

    5th Gen Explorer Photo Thread

    My Dad picked up a Ranger and bought these LED grille insert lights to be similar to the raptor grille not knowing he could get one, found out he could and gave me the bracket with the LED's. The bracket wouldnt work with this grille so I drilled out the holes and inserted the LEDs, I tapped...

    5th Gen Explorer Photo Thread

    Posted in the "what did you do today" thread but figured I would share here as well. Still need to get it painted but Iam happy with the added beef.

    Tow Package for 2019 Limited - 4WD

    Just to add to this one, maybe some clarification or reiteration from Peters post - Your vehicle is certainly capable of pulling 5000 lbs (which is what the dealer is selling you) from a power perspective however, as Peter has pointed out, ONLY if you have the factory components for the tow...

    What did you do to your 5th Gen?

    I didnt get a chance to take an actual photo but, here is the photo from Amerihood. That opening lines up right over my intake.

    What did you do to your 5th Gen?

    yup, full function! I will try to take a pic tonight. The scoop flows right over the intake.

    What did you do to your 5th Gen?

    Guys, I did a thing.. After a couple years of searching, I cannot for the life of me find anyone who has done this. I am sure now that I am posting it, they will show up! I purchased the Amerihood S-Type functional air scoop hood, and I am obsessed with it. I still need to get it painted but...

    Nitrous oxide on a 3.5 N/A engine ?

    If you have the money and the time, go for it.. Id start with researching the 3.5 sport motor. Those td04s can only push about 280 hp on a 2.5, which is why most guys switch to the VF series turbos, but you might get some good gains if you can figure out how to add them. A tune on an otherwise...

    Any Aftermarket brands for our Suspension?

    I agree with Peters' response, it probably means in conjunction but also, be careful with sites like CARID - Ive found several products they list as being compatible and when reaching out to the vendor, the answer has almost always been that its not..

    Lift kits for 5th gen. Explorer

    There are few guys that run Bilstein on here but Ive only seen their reviews on lowering springs however, Bilstein are the choice fave among many.. Not many know that Bilstein now makes a replacement shock of this gen so when I had mine replaced, the shop purchased Monroe shocks.. They are...

    Nitrous oxide on a 3.5 N/A engine ?

    Honestly, Id start with some bolt on's and a livernois tune if you haven't already. There is a thread in here somewhere with guys running the 3.5 NA tunes and are getting good numbers with other bolt on's.

    Will 2020 roof cross bars fit a 2011?

    I was going to suggest that as well. I've heard between Gens, Ford makes some minute adjustments which makes other parts non-compatible...Doesnt hurt to swing by and see if they fit.
  37. Pwerdbybeard

    What did you do to your 5th Gen?

    I am wondering the same thing.. Should I just purchase the Steeda tow links or go in for the recall?

    Exhaust mod

    Awesome! I say, go for it! I dont doubt a good shop can do it! @are6rider did a complete custom straight pipe that looks amazing, sounds even better! Granted his is a ExSport but still.. You find the right shop, it can be done.

    Need Help with replacing APIM

    From what I understand, you wont actually be able to "match up" another vehicles APIM.. Its programmed to the VIN and you either need a dealer to program it or find someone that will program it for you.. Ive seen a few posts where someone had another guy program it for like 50-75 bucks that went...

    Seafoam - Opinions

    I haven't done a Seafoam treatment on my 3.5NA Ex but I did on my WRX as suggested by my tuner. It did run a lot smoother. I cant say if it would harm or do any good but it definitely did good for the WRX.
