6th Gen Stock 2020+ Explorer & Aviator Photo Thread

I think for safety I'd want to put something behind the rear wheels to prevent a possible rollback.

I thought about that too. I was only in the front, so a rollback would just put it into the garage. I do have some chocks, but relied on the transmission & parking brake this time.

These are what I use and recommend.

PITA to install on a 2/4 bolt rear end.

Do the 6th-gen Explorers no longer have the hood insulation pad or did you remove it to install the struts?

I think mine does, but I'd have to go out & check to confirm.

Edit: Checked at lunch, my 20 Limited does have the hood pad/insulation

Thank you. I'm guessing it was removed in the picture to allow for the hood strut installation.

Mine did not have it when I purchased it a month ago. Doesn't look like it ever had one on it to me. Paint on all of the fastener holes is clean and unmarred.

Why did you choose to install the brace? The 2/4 bolt mounts are not failing. I replaced the bolts on my MY2020 with the new part and they weren't the slightest bit bent unlike many reported 1/3 bolt subframes.

My bolts were bent.

Just had to share my 2023 Explorer XLT. Folks are straining the necks to take a look.

I'm guessing there is supposed to be a picture?
