red.EDDIE.4x4's Explorer Registry

Name: Tyler
Truck: 1993 Eddie Bauer Explorer

welp...this is my baby. got her in the fall of 2007 as a gift from an elderly woman at my church. she bought it right off the showroom floor when it was brand new, and she kept it in excellent condition. the only real driving she did was to church, grocery store, and to the flower shop (which she put a tarp in the back so no dirt would get in the carpet). when i got her she had a whopping 54k on the odometer! and of course the paint was in scratch less.

just after a fresh coat of black on the grill and the wipers.

Rock auto was a no go for front gears huh? That sucks.

yes it was, thankfully they will allow me to return them due to the site saying the gears will fit. however they will not fit. sadly the cheapest set i can find are yukon and are about $350... if you ever see the axle code D2 or 42 feel free to pull the front pumpkin. ill paypal you or somethin

Ok. But PayPal wouldn't be necessary, because you're an hour away.

That tells me to hunt for own set. I found a set in Texas for 200 used. That might be the way to go. I drive a flatbed semi into Texas frequently, so pickup wouldn't be hard at all.

still an arm and a leg... thanks for the link Jeremy.

after driving it for the past few weeks with 4.10s, i think i may jump ship and try 4.56's. with 33s, on the highway it feels like my engine is almost bogging at 65 mph. and my rpms are somewhere just under 2000, which is not the greatest.

on performance off road center, i can buy a 8.8 ring and pinion AND d35 RR ring and pinion for a total of $275 in the 4.56 ratio.

Facebook pictures look really good man, I'm not really a 1st gen guy like I said but trying to talk myself out of selling one of mine...

Thanks for the kind words. mr. cribb and i have been going back and forth on what to do, but i decided last night to try and sell it first. if it doesnt sell, then i'll sell Jeremy (mr.cribb) my lift and anything else he wants. Sorry you had to find out this way Jeremy, my phone has been acting up.
