    That catalytic game, 02 4.6 limited.

    2002 Explorer 4.6, if read tons of stuff about exhaust for them but I haven' found a real answer on something. If you were to remove the cats, replace them with straight pipe then installing the o2 sensor in the same relative spot would the system work with no CEL? And with that being said...

    2010 ford sport trac key fob mod

    I wanted to know if its possible to replace our separate key and fob setup with an all in one key and fob (used on a ford edge I believe) for a cleaner look.

    Should I supercharge or turbocharge?

    I'm no car guy, I'm into the appearance of a car, but at the same time the performance. I don't know much about engines. I know though, that supercharging and turbocharging gives more power(?). I am considering one of those options on my 04' XLS Base model. I would like more power, a better...

    One way to install a better seat in the explorer

    So there may be posts about installing aftermarket seats in our Explorers but I couldn't find one that dealt with adapting a seat from another ford to work in our cars. The reasoning for me at least was simple the left side brace on the bottom portion just snaps over time. Maybe its just me but...

    Steering Wheel Mods from Stock?

    Hi all, currently the leather wrap on my wheel is broken and the wheel itself feels really bad in your hands (I'd try a cover but it seems to make the wheel too thick and hard to grip for me) I was wondering if there were any cheap options out there for a new wheel? I know carid has one for...

    Aftermarket Halo headlights for 03' Explorer?

    Hi all, I've been searching for sometime now and can't seem to find any professional looking aftermarket headlight/turn signal lamps for my 03' Explorer. I found one for the expedition but it is one single unit, whereas the explorer is two separate units for the turning lamp and the headlamp...

    Where to put (4) 10" midranges?!

    Plan on buying 4 10" midrange speakers in the next week. Would the C Pillars hold up 2 speakers each? Maybe fiberglass it? What would it take for these pillars to hold? What are your thoughts/suggestions? Arrows pointing to the pillars in the rear, closest to the liftgate TIA PPLES!

    Me and my Mods…

    After replacing my parking brake shoes, I wanted to make sure I didn't drive off with the brake on, like I've done so many times in the past. I just don't notice the brake light on the dash until it's too late sometimes. Well, I know it's been done before, so I decided I could install a blinking...

    getting a new muffler on all stock '97 explorer

    Well, I have a '97 XLT V6 all stock, but I've been playing with the idea of getting an after market muffler but am not sure if I'd have to mess with the catalytic converter. I already have someone who knows how to weld (good), so that's not an issue. Any input would be great!
