How do you "bodydropped"? Any pointers, photos, how-to's? Sounds like a good way to get a few more inches of drop without sacrificing ride quality.

the point of body dropping it is to lay the rockers on the fround after the frame has been layed out 1 of 2 ways or a combination of both like i did. you have a traditional body drop where you cut the floor outside the frame and let it fall down around the frame and weld filelr panels in, section out the firewall, and drop the front frame horns down to lower the core support. also search channeling. the other way is a stock floor body where you build a full new frame or partial frame that is shorter to lower the body mounts, this way is better for taller people and if you dont want a step when you open your door. but you have to tunnel for the tranny. alot of race car guys do this in a sence on like drag cars but personally i wouldnt bother doing it unless i was bagged or juiced.

my explorer has a traditional body drop to underneath the back seats then goes into the 2x3 3/16 wall tube chassis portion .

Thanks as for the front its kinda under wraps right now. I did a prototype on it just to see if it worked. Bags on radius arms = insaine amount of lift. The thing is I cut up the stock arms just to see if it worked. So I still need to take those cut up arms off, jig them up and build, some nice tubular and CNC cut parts. I'm still not sure if I'm keeping the I-beams lol if i can sell them then they are gone and I'm putting the mustang 2 front clip on it that I have, but I'm not going to mess with it untill the floor is in and everything else is done.
