    JP Explorer Toys!

    Found the micro set at target. Only one in stock. Then found this lot at a flea market. Wish the jungle Explorer was more complete though.

    What did YOU do to your Explorer today?

    I installed this guy on the JP Explorer. Swiss cheesed the bottom of the air box with a K&N. Definitely felt a difference. Still a pig though. lol

    What did YOU do to your Explorer today?

    Please post your findings after the new one is installed. I had my 93 trans rebuilt and it would lock and up lock on its own. Had that fixed and now I don’t feel or see (on the tach) it locking up. But my rpms are where they “should be” with my gears and tires.

    1991 Ford Explorer XLT Manual Transmission

    I agree with a lot of this. With the 6 digit odometer.. I think it’s kilometers not miles. Look at the speedo.

    Speedometer "Flutter" or shake

    It was broken in the housing. When I removed the speedo cable change out the gear the sensor fell apart. Glad I had a spare! Lol

    Speedometer "Flutter" or shake

    I had this issue and this is what I found when I pulled my speed sensor apart. Came apart in pieces. Fixed it and is super smooth now.

    JP Explorer Toys!

    I started collecting after I finished my JP05. I bought a few of the Explorers along with the matchbox Explorers and Jeep’s. Then it grew into what you see now… haha Since I used to be into scale crawlers I started working on this to match my full sized one. lol it’s not done yet. I started...

    Anyone with Duff extended arms? Have a question.

    Lol thanks! That’s the plan. Just needed someone else’s opinion to help put my mind at ease.

    Anyone with Duff extended arms? Have a question.

    The studs have a ton of room to be adjusted. Just set them to what the instructions said. The beam pivots look centered. I would think I could go another inch on the arms but was unsure if it would cause issues. These are new arms. Thanks for the response

    Anyone with Duff extended arms? Have a question.

    So on my 93 I have Duff extended arms and their coil buckets. 4” lift spring and f150 coil seats. The front end is around 5” of lift on 33s. Rear is SOA. My old lift was a rough country 4” lift. The piece of paper that came with the arms states the heims need to be turned out 3 full turns...

    What did YOU do to your Explorer today?

    Took off the seat covers and arm rest cover that’s been on my 1991 since 1990. I’m loving this thing more and more everyday. Slowly getting it cleaned up and ready for paint.

    Gen 1 version 2.0 build

    Really like the upper shock mount. Gives me some ideas on mine. I’ve been wanting to do something like this.. I’ve been running the shock adapters for the last few months and last week I had one fall off while down in south Florida… didn’t realize it for about 60 miles.. lost half of a brand...

    What did YOU do to your Explorer today?

    No but here’s the back seats. The fronts match this pattern. The fronts are very similar to the ranger seats in 90/91.

    Value of 1st Gen Explorers

    If you were anywhere near me I’d give you $1k for it. Lol. In central Florida there is only a few first gens for sale and 0 at any junkyard. Parts are hard to find here. That’s why I pick up any that pop up cheap. I’ve been looking for a 5 speed to do a swap. I flip ALOT of cars and the market...

    What did YOU do to your Explorer today?

    That’s really cool. I dig it! The seats are actually 100% mint under the Ford factory seat covers! Lol. It tripped me out to when I bought it. The center console has a cover on it as well.

    What did YOU do to your Explorer today?

    That one is 08/90 but I have this 4wd 91 with a build date of 04/90 with a very low vin.

    Quit your job and start doing what you love!

    I just did this last December. Best decision I ever made. Went from working 80-90 hours 6-7 days a week to 25-30 hours 5 days a week making more money. Gives me more time to spend with family and friends, traveling and spending quality time with my projects. Haha.
  29. J

    What did YOU do to your Explorer today?

    Yes, I have the lift that came off my 93 Jurassic build when I upgraded to the James Duff kit. Since this one is 2wd I’m going keep it simple and make it a daily beater.

    What did YOU do to your Explorer today?

    I removed the bulky fiberglass fender flairs and steps off of my 91. Getting it ready for a repaint, lift and 33s.

    Show us your custom bumper photos!!

    I left room for the tag mount, a drop table and jerry can mounts. Also, the tire is mounted closer to the swing so the weight is on that side and not in the center and when it’s latched there is a center support that the “weight” rest on.. not the latch or swing. It’s doesn’t wiggle much at all...
