Lift
3" body lift
front 4" lift with 4" skyjacker springs, soon to be 6" I hope. Rancho RS5000's
rear spring over conversion which I got darn near 6" of lift from when I was expecting 5" or less.
Rancho RS5000's

Other-
15x8 American Racing Baja's sporting 32x11.5 Regul Trailblazer AT's
GM front mounted tow hooks
Putnam class 3 2" reciever
full size spare, still mounted underneath deflated of course

wish list and possibly soon to come
The "biggest" 33" tire out there
4.10 gears with Detroit True-Trac front locker, rear disc axle with limited slip from a newer Explorer
Rear tire, HiLift carrier, Possibly taking the 3" gap from body lift, along with the space gained from spare tire missing underneath and cut inside frame rails and build a drop down hidden cargo area with a drail plug for multi uses such as a place to store cold ones on ice, wet gear or recovery equipment or hide stereo equipment from being seen.

So you are running 7" total lift in front and 9" in the back? How do them 35s fit up front, did you trim at all, and can you turn the wheels all the way?
How tough was your rear spring over, did you post step-by-step somewhere?

thanks

I should edit and update everything. I have a 1.5-1.75" f150 spacer in the front as well giving it over 8.5" and yup I still rub the 35's on the radius arms and I took the hammer and grinder to the rear of the front fenders about 2-3 inches. As for the SOA I have a write up on Explorer projects and it is even listed in useful threads!!!!

Bringing my truck up to speed, I have added a locker to the rear as well as the 6" skyjacker coils to the front. So again I am just posting to say I have dumped a pissload more money into this including another tranny rebuild. As well I bought a 95 black 4dr 4x4 Yukon that has 65K on the ticker and is in sweet shape. Now I happily own a daily driver that I am not embarassed to be seen in and it also pulls the Explorer. Lastly here is my favorite pic from my Colorado trip I took in July
