Dannyboy - I want that limited grill and I can't find one around town. So, send it to me or I'll come and beat you up, LOL.
Seriously, looks good with that lift!

Yeah well, I was going to do the 2" jacker, but then I designed my own spring over for like 30 bucks and then bought Kampy's brackets from his solid axle conversion and here we stand. Until Next time Brent, happy wheelin. I want to take another shot at Indiana. Oh yeah, as for the lift, It is Barret's fault. A great word of advice, GO big right away. He said he wasted like a grand by doing it 2 inches then 5 so I guess I am money ahead.

Dan is looking at bigger tires, perhaps 35x12.50 Goodyear MTR's, or a 33. I have good flex working and dont want to ruin it with too big of tires.

Another word for all you like Brian. Go lift your own truck. It is tough enough for me to try to afford all the things I want, but now you all put these ideas in my head, and then I want those too. Well that his better than the people around here. Some punk in a 97 Explorer(it was just like Commocozy's stock and he's a punk too) was telling me I had to go sell my Explorer because this tricked out Bronco for sale would be better, or else everyone who used to call it a grocery getter now thinks it's too big, or gonna roll at 10 mph. All I gotta say is SHUT UP OR I WILL PARK ON YOUR HOOD.

i wouldnt say go with the 35's just because you may be able to scrunch them in between the metal.
its just that you can run 33's alot easier and w/out the complications of "well, they only rub when the wheel is turned this much and I hit a little bump.
Not to mention the wear on (i am assuming) stock driveline parts meant to spin a 235/15 tire.
oh boy....then we have gears!!!!!
aahhhhhh damn, its that bug, its eating at me ........AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! go away bug!!!
lol

p.s.-danny, its like cancer, it doesnt go away.

Ok If I go to attica again I am going on a flatbead trailer, screw that driving there and then having to repair just so I can get home.
By the way anyone heard from Riff, I emailed him and asked if he would send my K&N to someone who wants to buy it. KKM IS IN and I get way better mileage. It rocks, best single engine upgrade, besides the v-10 swapLOL

Well I'm bored so time to update for those who care, and if you dont care, you are still reading anyway.
I have added
KKM true-rev
f150 coil spacers
skyjacker steering stabilizer
a few dents and scratches
and lastly purchased a 4.10 rear axle with discs(soon to get a Detroit True-Trac and gears, but may go 4.56)

Well It's been a while so more update
4.56 gears are in
disc brake rear axle is in
Warn manual hubs are in
Detroit EZ locker in front is in
Sway bar discos up fron are in
Extended my brake lines
Picked up a Warn M8000 winch for a steal, now adding front reciever winch from front or rear

Oh yeah, in case you missed the other thread, I got a free 91 Nissan Sentra as a beater car too, so basically if I drive that the MPG I save will go to more mods for the Exploer then i will eventually drive over the Nissan
