did it align ok with the new upper control arm it looks really heavy duty and longer than stock.

Here are the alignment specs. Supreme said to align to factory specs. The only thing that was off was caster by 0.2 degrees

I honestly barely notice it. It seems to handle corners fine, I haven't noticed any bump steer, and ride quality seems unchanged. I definitely noticed it in a positive way when I went off roading this last weekend. I wouldn't have even tried a lot of the obstacles I did without the lift

use mine on old logging trails in the upper Michigan hauling my kayaks or 15 ft fishing boat that 373 limted slip works great and 3 inch lift kit and tires give me enough clearance to run thru anything out there so far.

Just got this thing (07 Explorer) with 150k on it. Someone crunched the hood (breaking the chrome hood trim) and busted up the grill, so I had to customize it :D I got a black bug guard, and black grill off ebay. The grill didn't have a mounting spot for the oval, but where there's a will there's a way ;)Bug guard doesn't completely hide the dent, so I'll probably find some touch-up paint and fix that up a little. Also installed some LED bulbs in the headlights (don't really need another pic for that), the cooler light temp plus more lumens does help, and it looks good too.

Customizations soon to come: Delete bumper skirt, delete side steps (when kids get bigger), black the rims and put basically 31s on it (prob LT 265/70r16, but also might get 17s or 18s and passenger tires). Might lift it too.

Tires first, then doing some basic maint. to it before the remaining custom stuff (rear heat/vent actuator replace, ignition cylinder replace).

14 years old and still looking almost like new inside and out. Just installed Diesel LED reverse light bulbs, very bright, I'll try to post pics showing how bright they are soon.

Looks Good. Can you give a link to the reverse bulbs?

That's pretty crazy. Are those not going to blind people when you back up? lol

Lol probably but it's not too often I'm backing up and someone is sitting behind me facing the same direction....I might actually hope for those moments
