He's claiming it's a 6" lift. How do you think he managed to stuff those?

looks like he did a spacer lift like a btf lift which would give him almost 3in and than a 3in body lift
 






Agreed on the spacer/body lift. Body lift looks obvious. The ony other way I know of obtaining that much lift (6") would be to double SAS that with leaf springs over the axle.
 






You can see a **** load of frame...Body lift.
 






That's the only lifted x that will NEVER see dirt LOL
Seriously though somebody has way too much free time /dough
 












First off I am one of those people who just hates that stuff...why modify your vehicle to be capable of doing less things...you cant even haul damn groceries in it lol.

But I don't understand why people are impressed by that stuff, we know that 90+ % of the people who own those did none of the word themselves, they dropped it off at a shop for a few weeks and handed them a wad of cash.

I just don't get it and sorry for anyone who lowers their truck, but really? Have fun with potholes and speed bumps boys :D

Had to get that out.

Edit Edit Edit: Dropped all that money into it and it running the stock exhaust?

Yes, It can be done I have 7" of Suspension lift no body lift and its all factory with the exception of the lift brackets and upper control arms I made. I have 35s on this

Ah yes, I forgot about your lift. Just by looking at those pictures I don't think he had/has done that. I need to ask you a few questions about your lift, but that's a place for your thread.
 












just wanted to say ,That is one sweet looking explorer man !

I agree...:thumbsup:
 












Here are a few pictures of some of the brackets. These are final run what would be sold if I market these. These are several more brackets but this is what I have now. I though everyone would like a sneak peak. All designed by myself.

Not sure if I am going to have time to finish getting this stuff into production I have been really busy with work and other stuff lately and had to put this on the back burner.

I may be willing to sell all of the details and CAD and DXF files to someone for $5500 who may want to take it the rest of the way. I have everything deatail in AutoCad for all of the parts and materials. I also have Nested DXF files for the Laser cutout of all of the flat peices. Enough to be able to send them to a vendor to have made.

So 5500 for this stuff
 






That was a long time ago 2012- I think he wanted so much $ for it because it was a business opportunity for someone to make the kits and sell them. I haven’t read through this whole thread, but there’s more info about it:
Duner's 6" Lift Kit Group Buy Thread

Since 3rd Gen Explorer’s haven’t been a popular vehicle to lift that high (maybe because no one ever made a whole lot of parts to do it?) I think interest in the kits wouldn’t have been in big demand- a very limited group and not a huge profit unfortunately.☹️

how is the ride quality?
This thread has been dead for going on a decade and he hasn't been on the forum in almost four years. Trust me, I've tried to reach out to him but have had no luck
