Im Currently Working On My 95 Explorer XLT I Have Many Plans For This Truck I Will Keep Everyone Filled In As The Work Progresses.

Ok So I Bought This Explorer With Intentions Of Fixing It Up And Using It As An Every Day Driver But The More I Work On It The More I Want To Do To It My Intentions Are A 5" Suspension Lift And A 3" Body Lift With 36 12.50 16.5's For Now We Replace The Transmission

Why run 16.5s? The tires are tremendously more expensive than 15s or 16s. And should you ever have to sell them (tires/wheels), there are a lot less people looking for 16.5s.

You're doing a 4" suspension and 1"

That's going to rock - I'm assuming a 9" center section and some "custom" SLA arms? Flippin' KOH here we come!
