while not yet, in a few years it might be worth selling such a system as a kit. there a quite a few 3rd gen offroaders who would probably KILL a chevy driver for such a kit. could it easily be mass produced?

SHE LOOKS AMAZING! while im into the street sceane with my truck, i love going off road with ATV's!! that thing looks like it could destroy a LOT of mud.

i laughed only because you have BFG's on your X, but i also understand that it is probably a state law up there to have them...

no i have bfg's becuse there are quite a few days a year up here where 8 - 10 inches fall OVERNIGHT and our employers expect us to come to work lol. Im looking into a set of 20 inch foose rims with Pzero's, a 2 inch drop, and sway bars for my ride. I remember once when i was still in school when 3.5 feet fell in under 6 hours, school's were closed for 3 days, and most buisinesses were closed as well. was a real nightmare. my truck can safely navigate 1 - 1.25 feet of snow with the BFG's on the BFG All terrain TA / KO tires. i have gone through some as deep as two feet though. some time ill post a pick of my "Street" truck climbing up a rather steep snowy hill, to save a chevy lol.

Is that a custom made light bar or did you order it?

Forester; 08 ST sold :(
Would it be at all possible to have you sell kits (hopefully ones that will fit Gen4 Explorers and/or Gen3 Explorers)? I'd be hoping for less than $3k (excluding labor). I love how your Explorer looks, but I think those 35"s look a bit tight in there, so I'd probably put 33"s on, but I really just want those King Coilovers (since this is semi-custom order, might I get Bilstein 5100s? I like Kings, but I don't really need shocks that intense). I know Dave Turner Motorsports has an 07 ST with King Coilovers, but that thing also probably has $10+k worth of modifications. I emailed them once, no real response.
If you can't do a kit, how much do you estimate a local shop would charge for such a project? Also, could you provide dimensions, etc. so others can attempt this.

Thanks for any help.
