The Superlift skidplate might be the one that goes with their lift kit.

I used to have the one for Rangers on my truck. But, it's more for looks than protection.

You can see the one I put on my ST that's made for the Rangers. And you can see its just thin metal and got beat up on my truck.

Here's the Superlift skidplate. This is from a Sport Trac at SEMA 10 years ago(year 2000). But it is designed to attached to their cross beams.

The Superlift lift is not designed for hard core offroading. Me and other members here on EF have found out the hard way. Their brackets will bend under stress and the axle gets shifted towards the passenger side and then you will start breaking CV axles on the drivers side. I got stranded on an Arizona trail recently due to this issue.

Here's a couple of pics from changing the heater core on my 2000 Limited. It would be the same for the Sport Trac. It's really a sucky job to do.

Depends on who is installing it I guess. I think its been mentioned that its a 6 or 7 hour job. Some guys took them a whole weekend. I know my brotherinlaw did his in a day.

He put 33x12.5. He also did a tortion twist/shackle lift but the 3" lift alone is enough to fit that tire size.

Rear Window Init Procedure

I went through the standard Init Procedure with mixed results and I am hoping you, or others can assist.

I purchased a used '02 V6 Explorer Sport Trac - loving it. Successfully reset the keyfob, so I assumed that perhaps running this initialization might activate my seemingly dead rear window. It did, but when I turn off the vehicle after running the procedure the window is 'dead' again. It did this twice so I gave up.

As additional background info, the keyless entry pad seems to recognize the factory code, but does not reprogram or even lock/unlock. Could it be these are both related? I have checked all fuses, both the driver box and the engine box, but all are OK.

Thanks in advance for any help.
