Robbie21's 2001 Explorer Sport

OK ive been drooling over this site for years, untill finally in january i actually lifted my car and now im finally ELITE!

Im 18 years old in Cumming, GA, not far from atlanta. I work at Home Depot. I have never done anything with cars untill I put my lift on my X. And just like the rest of you, if i had an extra $15k i could drop it in a week on my car.

My explorer is a 2001 sport 2wd 4.0L SOHC. I got it with 87k miles on it, now has 106k. Since i bought it ive been in two wrecks, neither very serious, both about 1500 dollars. the first someone ran into my parked car in a kroger parking lot and sped off when i wasnt there. The other my g/f rear ended me when the person in front of me went from 45 to 0 for a dog.

What ive done so far:

2 audiobahn 12" 800watt max subs
2200 watt legacy amp
pioneer DEH -1600 head unit
westin step bars
Performance accessories 3" body lift
double AAL
warrior shackles
about 3" of TT
33 x 12.5 r 15 Procomp mud terrains on rockcrawler 97 series wheels
yakima lowrider roof bars
cut off my muffler
removed sway bar
zip tie THROTTLE CABLE mod (courtesey of BMXking)

these pics are before i added the warrior shackles and another inch or so of TT(i was rubbing)

well after i did my body lift my bumper reinforcement would not go back on bc of the different brackets, do i just decided not to use it. and then when i was reinstalling the plastic bumper the bolts and brackets were not cooperating and the bumper was not tightened well bc of that and was very flimsy, when i was going off road i didnt want it to fall off some how and get run over or something so i just took it off and my friends and i cut a peice of sheet metal and zipe tied and duct taped it on the from for protection from mud and sticks and stuff, but then when i went to put the plastic piece on again after off roading that day, i manipulated them so i could tighten them back down, and now its good to go

That's not gonna happen. We're looking for a Dana 44 for the front end. (I guess he caught the SAS bug from me) :p
