I think you have to cut the framerails to fit a rollpan on an Explorer.

Yep, you would. I would be interested if the price is right and cut it so the framerails come through.

I would be willing to cut the 4+ inches off my framerails to make room for a rollpan.

other than the fact it is kinda hard work to shorten the frame rails, what are the other cons to doing so? My friend's eclipse had to have all of its impact support bars taken off to make room for his body kit (if he ever gets hit, his car will just crumble), so im sure in comparision this wont be half as unsafe. i talked to the body shop guy who did this eclipse, a civic, and any other decked out car in my area (inluding his own 600+ hp chevy, its sweet :) ) and he thought he might evne be able to make a different roll pan work...

Think about this: The framerails on other trucks (i.e. Ranger) end at the end of the body. Explorer frame rails extend about 4-5 inches past the body because of the bumper design, which is somewhat abnormal.

With that being said, I don't think there are any more saftey issues with an Explorer than any other truck with a rollpan.

BTW, all you'd need to do is go at the rails with a grinder to hack em off. :D

so the only downside i can think of is that its irreversable. Once you've got a roll pan, you cant go back to your orginal bumper when u sell the truck?

I don't think that cutting off 4" of frame will make that big of a difference in the safty of the truck. Just cost the person that rear ends you more!

Fenders will not get in the way.

no, but they will look bad on an xlt if you don't modify them.
