I love it when parts come. When do you plan to install all of this?

Lots of things in thw works, so just an update of the "plans."

Hopefully by the winter...

Chopped Top with the rest made to fit with a truck bed cap or similar (canvas?)
I need to be able to drive this on the street in the winter so I cant have it open.

Exo Cage/ integrated tire carrier water/fuel/hilft in chopped area.
Tube bumper
d30 hung in place, used to mock up for a d44.

By Next Summer (in time for 11th annv. run)
built d30/44 depending on funds

Im counting on the transmission blowing any day now, and I think the head gasket is leaking (choc milk coolant) IF it does, ill either throw in a manual trans and repair the head gasket, or do the 302 swap (or possibly a 350 or one of the amc v8's).

Im getting a new vehicle ('00 stang gt) this summer for sure, so I can take all the time I need on these projects.

I also have a few small things that Ill do if I ever feel like it.

Rust coat the undercarriage
Repair the rockers and bedline (maybe do the whole thing in bedliner?)
Finish my half doors
Make a new center console out of fiberglass with spots for my iPod, maglight, ka-bar, a few cups, and my gauges/switches.

sounds like your going to be busy for a while, good luck with the transmission

I just re-read and saw this


Like the truck sno, but I nhave a question and seeing your truck you will definitly be able to answer this.

Im currently looking for a explorer stly such as yours, and looking for 33' possible 35" how much room do you have for the 33' as far as travel when you wheel? can you fit a 35'. Im asking this so I can estimate the amount of lift I will need depending on my decision on tire size.


I could fit a 37, which im doing very soon. With just a 6" lift you should be able to clear 35's.

I've got 5.5" of lift on my truck on 33's with no problems (except for the offset) and I could probably tuck 35's under with just minor trimming. Rim size and offset will make a big difference when it comes to rubbing when turning.

I have a 3" body lift and with minor trimming on the inside corners, 33's fit perfect at full lock and full compression.
