The beefed up rear hoop.

There are still a lot of gussets and supports needed, but this allows me to move it soon.

The is just awesome....Cory, what size tube is that rear hoop, I'm guessing 2" because thats the bender capacity right? But it looks like 2.5". Also, what type of tubing are you using throughout. I'm looking at getting a bender next summer (if I can justify the cost to myself) so just trying to figure out which die sets to get and stuff like that.

That's sweet!! Do you even think it is an Explorer anymore? When people ask you what it is and you tell them, do they believe you?

Looks like I exceeded my bandwidth on my Homestead account and they won't let the pics link.

LOL.

I'll fix them when I have more time.

Just to let you guys know, Cory is out of town for the holidays (wish him luck, he is with future in-laws). So, please don't think he is ignoring anyone or slow to get back with you, he is just without computer for awhile. For you guys who know about his problems getting into his new shop, he is now in and working hard. I have a strange feeling, his truck is gonna be put on hold for awhile because he is getting a lot of requests from members here for products.
