    GoPro or ?

    I messed around with the features and tried out the "loop" feature. I didn't realize it saves each 2, 5 or 7 minute loop onto the drive. Makes it easier to download and separate the events of the drive.

    Window Woes

    You can pull the motor by drilling out the three rivets holding it in place. Replace with bolts and lock nuts, I used nylon insert nuts. You do not have to remove the regulator.

    GoPro or ?

    The other day I went down a dirt road in Rancho Santa Fe that I haven't been to in about 25 years. I messed around with the camera and took a few test videos. I don't know if I like that geostabilize feature. Had to figure out how to upload videos to YouTube since I have never done that...

    Window Woes

    Sometimes, all it takes to get the windows moving again is to clean and grease the regulator. A tip for those who want to retain the plastic sheet dust cover on the doors. Cut around the edge of the cover inside the glue line, and around every place its glued to the door. When replacing, use...

    Bkennedy's SAS and Rebuild Thread

    I took it for a short drive over to the parent's house on Friday. Drives the same, vibration still gone, I guess I fixed it. I did drive over to a area we used to go off-road and camping at when I was young. Its all private area's with huge houses, which was no surprise since its on the edge...

    Adventure trailer build thread.

    If I ever build a trailer, this will be my go-to thread. The last picture, can you run the brake wiring along the side of the arms and then to the body so its better protected?

    The Black Pearls LM7 5.3 LS SWAP!

    Its supported from three of the four corners and hasn't moved in a long time over a lot of trails. Those inner fenders are sturdy. You can see in one of the pics that occasionally my tire will contact the inner fender and it hasn't caused any damage. You could run a piece of flat bar from...

    The Black Pearls LM7 5.3 LS SWAP!

    I made a battery tray out of old angle and its welded to the front inner fender and core support. Its been there for at least ten years and is holding up fine. I modified the radiator/windshield washer reservoir by cutting it in half and discarding the windshield washer part. I used heat and...

    Truck Haven

    OK, so it this run still happens; It will be a group of friends who happen to plan events, in part on the Explorer Forum, but the forum in no way sanctions such events.

    Appraise my car?

    My 1994 Explorer has over $25K in mods and thousands of hours in labor to make it a better off road trail rig and I bet I would not be able to get more than $6-7K on a good day if I sold it. The modified older SUV market just isn't there.

    Got the Explorer diff filled and its back on all four feet. At today's weather conditions, it took about 20 minutes to fully empty a one quart bottle of Lucas 85-140 hanging above the diff with a tube into the fill port, so it was about an hour filling the diff. Going to take it for a drive...

    Appraise my car?

    I looked it up on KBB and fair market private party sales for one in excellent condition was $4500. Those mods will not increase the value more than a few hundred, and that's only because someone might be more inclined to purchase it for his son as a first car. The maintenance would sell it...

    Bkennedy's SAS and Rebuild Thread

    I haven't done much in the past few days. I got a tension headache that I get from time to time due to a old neck injury. Feels like someone is pushing a hot metal bar through my forehead. Only way to get it to stop is to knock myself out for 24 hours. Feel better today. I replaced the...

    Travis' 94 - The Culmination!

    Looks great. You have any rubbing with those tires on the back of the front fenders? I trimmed mine off, then rolled the edges and touched it up with some spray paint. Luckily, our white is easy to match. I couldn't get anything finished by yesterday. Daughter's Ranger blew the pressure...

    I got everything installed. I pulled the diff fill plug and its shot. The hex is starting to round out and I don't want to put it back in there. Are the 8.8 differential fill plugs just a 1/2-14 NPT threaded plug? I'm having trouble locating a replacement by vehicle on-line.

    ball broke on liftgate

    Its hard to tell when someone posts a three letter thread and then never elaborates, but I think that is what he is looking for.

    ball broke on liftgate

    Someone bumped my wife's new car with a shopping cart yesterday. I was a little annoyed but glad I had this thread to share it with everyone.

    Speedway Motors ships superfast, I got the ring gear bolts at my door about 5PM. Going to put the axle together today and give it until tomorrow for the thread locker and RTF to cure before filing with gear oil. I use Lucas 85-140 gear oil. That stuff pours like cold honey. I hang the bottle...

    Vendor for first set of ring gear bolts issued me a full refund, maybe the second set will show up on time.....

    Travis' 94 - The Culmination!

    Spare tire mount and cross members went away on mine many years ago. That looks strong. I like how you managed to retain the rear sway bar. I was messing with the idea of putting mine back but the space for the sway bar is taken up by my axle shock mounts. Since you retained the spring under...

    I ended up ordering another set of ring gear bolts from Speedway. See which one shows up first. Edit: Speedway says they shipped and it should be arriving tomorrow (Tuesday). Now, to cancel that other order.....

    My latest project: 1970 Dodge Dart 512 C.I. Bracket Racer

    You can see those tires were really heating up right about when you let off on the pedal.
