Bigdaves "desert" X registry


Well I went elite a while back so I guess its time to make a registry. Most of the pics are just of the truck most recently and I'll update this more when I get some off road pics and if it goes under any other major changes. Anyway, here ya go

Front suspension:
Camburg 6.0 performance kit with race spindle and tube uniball upper a arm. (1.5 wider per side)
8" by 2.5" King resivoir shock
Limited at 11-12" of wheel travel

The front fenders are Hannemanns 4" over fiberglass for second gen. explorers

Rear suspension:
Warrior Shackles
Deaver 11 leaf long travel pack
10" by 2.5" King resivoir shock with custom upper and lower tower
Pulls 14.5-15" of wheel travel

Tires and Wheels:
American racing baja 15 x 8 rim
33 x 12.5 pro comp All terrains

The engine is the 4.0 SOHC and the only mod there is the ASMI intake kit

Exhaust is a flowmaster 70 series cat back system with turndown

Re geared to ford factory 4.10's a while ago for the 32's, probably gonna want 4.56 with the 33's though.

2 euro and one pencil Hella 4000's

Hope you guys enjoy it and if you have any questions ask away

February 2005

Nice looking rig! If I could justify King's for my sas i would pick them up in a second. I haven't seen someone use the stock sway bar brackets as a shock mounting point...i may have to duplicate that haha, they are nicely protected the stock mounts should be pretty darn sturdy.

^^I agree. Great looking truck.

CP - What are you talking about???? "I may have to duplicate that" You are using a 9" = no sway bar mounts on it?!?!? :confused:

I bet that's a head turner when you drive down the street. I like your choice of brands for your mods. Best of the Best.

thanks for the comments guys and i uploaded some new pics above

no i dont want to do soa because i dont want any more lift, its tall enough as it is.

i took it out for the first time with the new suspension and it works amazing, very very smooth over everything, i couldnt be happier with it.

I thought that's what it was but wasn't sure, because like you said the pics aren't the clearest.

Oh, and update the avatar. I vote for the last pic. ;)
