I got this explorer back in 2004 when I was 15 from my mom. It had a blown transmission that I had to get replaced. Since then I have modified it. The only bolts I haven't turned would be on the original motor.

This picture was taken when I spend most of my day washing and waxing it with McGuire's 3 step wax system.... boy did it shine!

rear bumper/body lift

Hey sam thanks for the compliment earlier. I don't get on aim much but the next time I get on I will have to send an i/m your way

I put a 3 inch body lift on the ex. Didn't get any pictures during the installation though.
Here are pictures of the rear bumper I built and the results of the 3 inch body lift.

I was talking to a friend from school outside of auto zone the other day. He asked me what for suspension lift I put on this cause we were standing behind the explorer looking at this bumper. I smiled and replied its a 3 inch body lift!
ex0015.jpg

Here it is with the body lift. Now I plan to put a coil spacer on and 31 inch bfg's and I am done modifying this for a while. (so i think!)

I got a picture of it with the washers(stacked 1" thick and welded) I put under the coil seats to level the front with the rear. I am going for an alignment today hopefully it turns out ok!

Alignment

I took the exploder to the alignment shop today. They told me that it would take about 3 hours to install the new camber bushings and get it lined up so I am taking it back to them Thursday morning. The guy said it would be around 240 dollars total. Does anyone know if that is a reasonable price? I put my own ball joints in it before so I know it is a bitch getting those camber adjusters out. I have the 1 inch washer spacers under the coil seats. So i would have around 245 dollars into this and my front end sits level with the lifted rear. I don't think that is too bad. any opinions?

Alignment Completed!

I got my alignment done today by More than tires in Carlisle, Pa. They did a great job. $165 got me two new installed camber bushings and the toe in aligned. I am really pleased with their customer service and quality work! That will be the place where I will purchase my new tires too.

Finally Rollin' 33's 33x10.50's

From reading up on 33's and 3.73 gears I was a little scared I would loose alot of power. It isn't as quick as it used to be but hey it isn't supposed to be a race car. There isn't a whole lot of difference power wise and it definitely isn't as bad as a lot of people put it! I use low range more and keep her in Drive unless I am on the highway then I bump it into overdrive. I am 100% happy with 33's and I didn't have to trim anything. There is not the slightest bit of rubbing!

My next project on this vehicle is to tackle the gears... Looking at 4.56's and lockers. Time and money will tell!

I would really love to do a solid axle swap but I have a good many spare parts for the dana 35. I feel it is more than sufficient for what I do and plus its already there lol.

I do have everything I need to regear now. 4.56 ring and pinions and master install kits for both ends. A detroit replacement carrier locker that will get set up in the rear. For the front I went with the power trax lock right. I can't wait!
