Well It's time to drag this beast home. U-Haul might not let you tow there junk with an Explorer. But you can load an Explorer on their junk.:D

Photo's:

Here it is all loaded up ready to roll

It was no fun having to change the tires 100+ degree heat to make it fit:(

Except for some crosswinds and idiot truck drivers the trip was pretty uneventful and got it home in one piece:D

So from June 07-Aug 07 it has sat doing nothing more than collecting dust while i was trying to find a motor to get it on the road. Been doing little things to it like removing the guards in front of the headlights and removing the taillight guards. And oh yea putting back on the 33's:D

And finally now for the big moment finally got the motor I been needing....

It came from a 1993 Ranger Supercab 4x2 with a 5spd tranny with about 85k on the clock even has a new clutch in it :D and the guy i bought it from gave me everything short of the kitchen sink with it, the whole engine compartment harness, computer, radiator the Entire A/C system still sealed;) extra TB and all the rest of the accessories attached to the engine, the Flowmaster muffler
shifter for the trans and even the complete clutch setup still attached to the trans(master/slave cylinder):eek: and it even has headers and a modified TB.

I'll get photo's up later after i get this thing unloaded:confused:

...no, they won't...i got a dragster welder in my shop compound but i haven't seen him in a week or 2, he's on the race circuit...
...are you sure the leaks can't be fixed with gaskets...if the headers are cracked i would either replace with stock or new headers...cheap headers tend to do that often...
...first, did you find a tag on your headers...if not, they won't run it thru smog anyway...
