Thanks alot guys...


I like her alot too.. My Wife Says i spend to much time with her than spending time with her lol.. I love em Both Yes she needs bigger tires but im kida in a bind. I would like to put 35x12.5x15 on but if i do now i will have to chop up the fenders. I dont really want to do that I want to put the 4inch Lift kit on so i dont have to chop up the fenders. Only a few problems dont have the cash for the kit the gears or the tires. So i guess im going to wait on the 35s or any ida's what i can and should do??


Also can someone fill me in on gears people say i need em when getting bigger tires. Im still new to this so im kida like HUH. Would i need them for 35's and where would they go and are they axles or new tranny or new rear ends.. Thanks for the info really need it..

Hey Thanks

I took it to a great tint shop in my town they are great.. Well the explore was all ready factory tinted anyhow did know it would be a problem and i was not going to replace all the windows. So my plan was to make it all 5% all the way around but after running into that problem. It looked way to bad So we tried 15% all way round but front and back 5% and being factory tinted it kinda reflects like a silver tint which makes it kida cool. I like it it though...

update as of 05-18-08


The Front f150 coil seats and the rear shackles are installed now Sorry no pics the only thing i see is that the truck did lift about 1-1/2 inches and pretty much leveled out im guessing. I never measured before i did the shackles and front coil seats. LOL I'm very happy with the sploder.

Hey its a roof rack and Hitch LOL i took the rack off before i painted it and the sploder looked funnie. LOL so i really needed to throw it back on LOL.

Nice explorer. That thing looks like a lot of fun to wheel. I pretty much have the same setup you do. (3 inch body, shackles & spacers) I just gotta get bigger tires. You'll have to take a look at mine sometime. The link is in my signature!
