    Fan control knob for the heater and AC...how to remove?

    I need to go to a wrecking yard and get a replacement fan speed control knob for my 1993. My old one literally just fell apart with cracks and spins on the fan switch shaft. When I do find one, do you just firmly pull it off or is there a way to do this without breaking anything when trying to...

    Lower rocker panels removed...what to cover the holes with?

    I removed the plastic lower rocker panels....is there a factory "strip" molding that covers the holes? I'm pretty sure there is a thread on it, but gave up after multiple searches. Forum member "Travis' 94" truck has a thin black strip that covers these holes....trying to figure out if this is...

    What 6" drop pitman arm use....Skyjacker not fitting

    We're in the process of fitting a 5.5" Duff lift kit on my 1993 Explorer. The kit comes with a 4" drop pitman arm, but everything I've researched says go 6" to keep the tie rods in phase with the beams. The part I ordered is Skyjacker FA600....which Skyjacker lists for the Ranger, Bronco II and...

    Running into problems getting a front lunch box locker figured out

    I'm trying to get a front lunchbox locker installed in my 1993 TTB Dana 35. I thought I had it figured out and bought a Spartan Locker with the 1.5 bore, 27 spline, etc. But it appears that the 1993 and earlier trucks have a 1.625 bore?? Somehow I missed that and when I talked to USA Standard...

    The disease continues....picked up yet another Explorer

    Already owning an 1989 Bronco II and 1993 Explorer, I just picked up a 2002 Explorer Sport 4wd. Now all I need is a Sport Trac to complete the collection:) I'd really like to pick up a set of stock fender flares that I've seen on other older 2 door Sports. But being a 2002, is there a fender...

    Aftermarket Front seats....any new input??

    I spent a couple of weeks looking for seats to replace the front cloth buckets in my 1993 Explorer. Although the seat fabric is in very good condition, the person I bought the truck from was a very large woman that pretty much smash the drivers seat flat (especially in the left thigh/hip area)...

    How to tell if the converter is locking up on a 1993 Explorer

    Just picked up a 1993 Explorer 4x4 with 3.27 gears, auto and the stock size 235/75/15 tires. On the highway at a constant 65 mph the tach shows around 2200 rpm. How can I tell if the torque converter is locking up? The RPM's seem just a little high to me. I've tried touching the brake while...

    The rabbit hole just got a lot deeper...

    I started with a very clean 1989 Bronco II and just wanted to put a Dana 35 and 8.8 rear end on it....re-gear it, lockers and a suspension kit that would let me run tall skinny 33's....like a 10.5 x 33 tire. I thought I knew what I wanted. Found a used 1994 Explorer as the donor vehicle for the...
