Hello gents. I am posting because I need information.
I purchased a tuner from Diablo over a year ago and have been using the 91 octane tune and its decent.
I have been reading alot about Southern Speed Inc and am wondering if any of you guys/ gals have been using their tunes. Is SSi...
HID's are easy to install for your headlights as well as your fog lights. I have installed both and got my kits from DDM tuning.
Night driving is 100% better with the HIDs. You will not regret converting. Also, the 35 Watt kits are wonderful and IMO the 55 watt kits are overkill.
I installed kit #102040 on my 2015 Explorer about 10 months ago.
I had to replace all my tires because the outside edge of my front tires (primarily driver side) were ate up nicely. I don't think the company that installed my kit did the alignment properly or adjusted the cant/ camber...
I debadge all of my vehicles. I hate giving away free advertising to dealerships, plus I like the air of mystery I give to people who check out my rides. People ask me all the time what type of vehicle my Explorer is due to it being debadged and the Ford symbols covered over.

Another nice thing would be if Ford would make the Wheel-wells slightly larger so we could fit larger diameter tires.
I put a 2.75" lift on my 2015 Sport and can't even put 60's because of the small wheel-wells.
My local dealership (Bill Knight Ford) has had my vehicle on 2 occasions to fix this issue and the problem still exists. I just got it out of the ford dealership on 17 July 2015. It had popped out before I had even left the dealership.
I want this fixed. Any recommendations?
If you installed a 160 thermostat then you would need to use the tuner to change the temperature for which the fans turn on otherwise you may as well use the stock thermostat as the onboard computer is programmed for those temps.
Wheel spacers are great until one day you are driving down the road and your vehicle starts wobbling violently..... then you pull over and realize your lugnuts are loose...
Resist the wheel spacers and just get appropriately sized rims. It's better to be safe than sorry.
This is extremely important!!
I installed spacers on my previous vehicle and did not retorque them. I had no damage but I felt a wobble so I retorqued each nut...on the spacer and on the rim....
I do NOT recommend installing spacers even if they are high quality ones.
