Anyone have and pictures of a 98-00 Explorer Sport with an explanation of what all you did to it to make it look the way it is?

I recently bought 1.5" shackles and new pro comp ES9000 shocks to try and level out my 99 explorer sport. I am looking to buy rims and tires next depending on the out come of the shackles and shocks. I would like to get a sporty/off road appearance without doing a body lift if possible, but will see. Any pics with a caption of what you did to make your ride look that way would be helpful.

Thanks,
Rich

Not a sport, but here is how mine used to look.... (it is lowered now). It had lifted shackles, TT in the front, and 32" tires on 20's.

There are a lot of "before and after" threads dealing with Sports, you just have to search for them.

I'll show a progression for you start at stock, then the 2" lift, then the rest...

Thank you and keep them coming, these are very informative for me...thanks again!!
 






Not current, but close. Stats are pretty much the same as everyone else's. Last pic is with 1.5" TT, AAL & shackles. I will most likely do a body lift at some point in the future to allow a bit more suspension travel, though Superlift/SOA isn't out of the question either.
