I don't post here much anymore but since I got my start here I thought i'd post up.

Got my explorer out of the garage finally. Still need to build a radius arm x-member, mount my winch, resolve a brake leak, and run rock lights/in cab winch controls. I currently have stock junk for the steering. I'll be replacing that with heims and DOM. Also need to make an e-brake provision. Either going to use electric line locks or build a driveline brake which will mount to the output of the x-fer case.
Driveline:
1978 9"
1979 D44
Custom 9" disk brake conversion w/ Oldsmobile Bravada calipers
5.13 gears
spooled rear
open front (planning on ARB)
3.5" eb springs
stock rear springs
35" BFG MT's

Misc:
CB
hand throttle
rock sliders which replace the stock rockers
Milemarker E-9000 winch



I kinda wish I could get it an inch or two lower...oh well :)

I have an HO 302 basket case in the corner which I might rebuild for this. If not it's going to go in something else which hasn't been determined yet.

The passenger side ra will get wristed. The cross member I need to build is for the ra mounts (stock 79) only, too keep them from folding in. The ra mounts are dropped two inches for a more horizontal arm. The RA drops also let me space the mounts out past the frame since i'm running a full width axle. Those drops are part of the tranny x-member as well so it's really one big unit. I don't have a pic of the this.

The way I built everything is I want to switch to an extended arm sometime in the future I can. Everything is bolt on (with massive backing plates) so i'm not locked into this setup.
