    Painted roof racks

    The fake chrome was peeling off, and there were rust spots on the roof and hood so I thought I'd get all that fixed at the same time and body match the roof racks and end caps. I left the cross bars stock. Also replaced and tinted the windshield 85%. I like it.

    My '07 Limited V8 'Garage Thread'

    I had the exact same symptoms as you with the tranny. The dealer recommended I use SP fluid though. It seems like SP trans fluid is going out of style though. what made you go with LV?

    Front brake upgrade

    I got the drilled/slotted rotor and pad upgrade from summit and it's way better than stock. probably not as good as going bigger though.

    I would be nice to know which model of subwoofer works well in the factory box

    Braided stainless brake lines

    I got the drilled and slotted rotor/pad kit from summit and that made a huge difference over the warped stock ****. As these explorers get older they'll benefit more from the SS line kit.

    2010 Wind noise

    yup, its probably the rubber that the window sits in. I fixed mine by rolling the windows down, pulling the rubber off the door, running a bead of adhesive silicone and rolling the window back up.

    Vehicle surging with shudder/maybe torque converter clutch?

    I did the same, just dropped the pan, replaced the filter and like 6 quarts of SP fluid. That fixed my shutter. I then replaced the spark plugs for good measure, don't think that helped as much in my case though.

    I need ideas where to mount a back up camera!!

    I'm wondering if anyone tried this? I'm looking for a good backup camera, preferably one where I can see the corners of the bumper but I'll use it for hooking up trailers. If would be great if it didn't block the license plate as I think that may be illegal here in TX

    2006 4.6L v8 right bank exhaust manifold gasket replacement

    So they warp every few years and neither ford of the aftermarket had made a better option, that sucks. I wonder if headers from another 3v 4.6 would be close enough. Right now mine ticks on startup but warms up and gets pretty quiet.

    2006 4.6L v8 right bank exhaust manifold gasket replacement

    Would yall recommend upgrading the manifold (to a header?)while you're at it ? Maybe something higher performance and or less likely to warp?

    bypass the radiator trans cooler?

    This may be correct, but I did read on this forum that the 6r60 has an internal thermostat that would bypass the coolers until it reaches a certain (very warm) temp. That's why they said trans flushes don't work.

    Nav Video Interface installed w/ pics

    Just curious, do all 4th gems come pre wired for a backup cam, or do you have to run wires from the cam to the front?

    bypass the radiator trans cooler?

    So I just got this used 2007 with the 4.6. The quick connections for the trans cooler lines at the radiator are slowly leaking and it has a separate trans cooler. What's the point of having both? I could either "rig" the radiator connections or bypass it. On other vehicles I've had with...

    2006 6R60 transmission / torque converter issue

    My 07 4.6 was doing the "bumping" or rumble strip feeling between gears at around 40-60mph. The fluid and filter change has helped so far (knock on plastic)

    08 explorer IRS Locker options?

    I've been lurking for a while and I just registered to let you know how awesome this is. Thank you so much for doing the legwork and taking the time to do the writeup. As a new 4th gen explorer owner I was concerned about the lack of lsd.
