Update:

Did a little wheeling after getting back from THaven.... Im back in the wheeling mood

Ended up starting the day with a front hub that is locked in the unlocked position. That hurt the day but i still tried everything like it was 4wd haha

This reminds me that those stupid grey ends didnt paint themselves...I need to do that this week. I got a few cans of flat black

I think that's the first wheeling i've seen since the lime. Looks much better with a little mud :)

Yeah, finally found a place where people were willing to talk about Explorers, instead of pissing on them. How sweet it is

Yeah i know man. I went wheeling with a bad hub and had to use the winch a few times so i used the strap on a tree so i didnt destroy it and the guy that hooked it up tied the strap and now its either leave it there or cut it off..... It needs to be cut off

UPDATE

After revisiting the poll and thread on mileage on your Explorer ( CLICK HERE ) I have noticed that I drive my Explorer way to much. Right now for this year I am sitting at 341,561 miles. Last year almost to the date I was sitting at 324K. So far thats around 18,000 miles this year and the year is not over yet. I forsee that before the end of this year I will have around 24,000 miles on this big baby.

I think that I have put the most mileage on a Solid Axle Explorer than anyone. I mean correct me if im wrong but dang im racking up the miles.

Umm yeah, 24,000 miles a year on that thing is quite a bit. Do you find yourself having to change out any driveline parts? I run 37s on a solid axled rig every day but it's stock running gear and I'm not even putting that kind of mileage on my truck, closer to half that a year.

My explorer gets about 3,000 miles a year. All are pretty brutal miles and parts need attention often.

By the way, I think this is the first time I've read this whole thread, I dig the rear door graphic, never seen that before.
