    I've been looking into what all i would need in order to gain another at least 2-4 inches of ground clearance from the stock level. I don't want a body lift, I'd like to lift it completely and put some 32-33's on it so hopefully I won't have to be worried about getting stuck on beginner level...

    02' Off Road Build

    So I picked up this 02 Eddie 4.0 on the super cheap. It has 310k on it lmao, no idea on the history but the trans seems solid- numbers look good on the engine's pressure(about 160 psi on the left bank, didn't bother with the other side). Think it needs a timing job on the front- it has a knock/...

    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...
