I'm already all cranked up and ready to go!!! Its not soon enough for me. Next year is to be the year of the dirt for me, making it a personal point to go out wheelin every chance possible. Got my No-Slip today and its going in Monday, so I will have at least 3 wheel drive at all times!

Sorry Gopher..no more left-front, right-rear spin. I think your 2wd had more traction than that open diffed, worn out limited slip truck of mine.

Can't wait to see you all there and let loose!!:chug: :bounce: :D :cool: :shoot: :smoke: :usa:

Hey Bill, it always seems to be me or you that leads. But, when I lead there are no bypasses like BKennedy said there are when you lead. That's why YOU always get to lead. Plus did you get my e-mail? I can't wait to get out there either, I'm going :confused: Well, take care, I'm out.

And I don't mean to brag (well okay I do), but I remember leading at least a few runs in the last few years.:rolleyes:

If you guys are hard up for leaders, I can also do it. I am also not looking for body damage but sometimes it does happen.

Rick,
I talked to one of the Marketing guys yesterday and if you want to take off your solid axle and put on some A-Arms theirs will work but then again you'll have to get a newer Ex. He said they won't market their lift for the Explorers cause they don't wont to be involved in lifting the vehicles that roll when their tires blow. But unofficially both versions of the kits should fit with some obvious grinding and a few drilling locations. This is from a marketing guy though so I'm not too sure how technically right he is. I'll talk to one of the development guys sometime and post a reply on the RCD forum under the suspension area.

Take off my solid axle for A-arms:eek: No thanks.

I was inquiring for all of the folks who need lifts for their late model Explorers not myself.

That' a really lame reason not to build a kit for the Explorer. Superlift and Trailmaster already put theirs out.

The fact is that there are more Ford Explorers on the road than any other SUV built in the past decade, therefore it only makes sense that more Explorers will have accidents of all kinds.

Why don't you show the marketing guy the Car and Driver report that showed what happened when they blew a left rear tire on an Explorer at 70 MPH... You know what happened... Nothing. The truck tracked straight as an arrow.... with the drivers hands not even on the wheel :D
