or would putting a 1st gen body on a 2nd gen chassis be more ideal?

shite son.. i thought the TTB set-up went to 97 like the rangers. i wanted to get an original 5.0L Explorer and 1st gen front clip it. but i prefer the TTB suspension.

I'm just gonna do a 5.0L swap on a first gen and disc brake swap the rear.

Cheers.

correction only if im wrong but I believe that the 95+ explorer has the ifs with torsion bars. Even though the Ranger had the ttb to 97 the explorer went to 94
