Hey, Al I was wondering where did you get those Altezza Taillights? I see that you don't have them on anymore. And Will the 99-01 Model taillights fit on the 95-97 models? I see they are the same size and width.

nope-
the hatch was re designed in 98, the top inner corner of the tail light is more rounded 98-01

Hey Al,

attachment.php


Was this factory or aftermarket? Did you add it yourself? I'm looking at a 99, and it has the rear wing. Thanks.

Thanks! So that was from Lund. Looking over the list in the first post, I thought it was a visor. D'oh. I keep thinking they only make visors. :eek:

Al, I can't remember, I know you have switched out your suspension components before, but I can't remember what you have settled on.

Is you explorer riding at stock heigh or did you lower your explorer some?

I am currently using Rancho 9000X shocks and an EE rear sway bar.

Stock.

Al wondering what type of spark plugs you used. I have magnacore wires but for some reason my buddy put in bosch plugs in. I think they are killing my gas mileage and want them out! Whats your reccomendation?

I use Motorcraft plugs.

I wouldn't hit a wild dog in the arse with Bosch plugs.

After owning a 1999 explorer with the same motor, I commend you on your achievement of getting such great mileage from it. I find it over whelming what you have done to get it there, I am happy to see that others had great experiences from that truck with that motor, I had a lemon. Very impressed.
