Glen's lifted first gen (Pa)

1994 Limited
Automatic with E1354
4.56 Gearing
Mile Marker hubs (will be changed when I find my WARN hubs)
6" Skyjacker Lift SOA in the rear
Explorer Pro Comp Shocks ES9000 with Green boots
MOOG Ball Joints

Plans right now are to put a 2nd gen rear in it and lock it.

A few pictures til I get better day shots.

Well since this Ex needs another rear end, I thought of 2nd gen and was doing some research and found that the F150 8.8 is about the same except for width obviously. And am buying a full width D44 for the future so might as well put an F150 8.8 into the Ex and get wheel spacers for the front as much as I don't care for them and either get the front or rear bolt pattern to match. Didn't plan on this step so soon but stuff happens :D. Who knows where this is going to go, planned on it only being off the road for maybe a month but things sometimes last longer than ya think when you start thinking.....

So in your signature you say it's a 94 limited but the limited first gen only came out in 93 I have the same one. So how is yours a 94?

Every year explorer has had a limited edition. 93 was the first year they appeared. :D

Oh, and Glen, this thread needs more pics....MORE PICS!!!! :p:

But can you snap some of the front suspension for me? I need to rework the skyjacker lift in my navajo, and need some good reference pics. Thanks buddy!

Yes as Russel stated 1993 was the first year for the limited trim package to become available and has been available ever since. So 93 and 94 are the only years of the 1st gen limited's. The build date on the door is actually 2/94.

Umm I'm honestly not sure...I believe all was kept the same option and power/drive train wise in 93 and 94.

Thanks and yup I love them for some reason :rolleyes: lol
