So now that school is over(Graduation Sat!!!!
) and summer has started I have the time not to mention cash to do a few mods that I've been waiting to do...
A while back I found a local "garage"(an older fella runs it and just tinkers with his explorers) that has literally dozens of explorers and a handfull of rangers.
I stoped and talked to the man and got permission to have a look through the yard and see what I could find, looking for a few parts off an explorer, specifically the OHC, 95+ rear w/disks, and a set of leather seats.
After browsing I found that this place is a gold mine for explorer parts, esp full length consoles and LOTS of OHCs. I picked up an 98+ OHC w/ the green display for only $10. Has anyone replaced their map lights with leds?
I didnt find a decent set of Grey eddie Bauer Seats though. There were 2 good sets of tan ones and one set of grey ones but they were badly weathered.
AND I found the new rear end for the Ranger!
It is a explorer 8.8 ls with 4:10s AND Disks(axle code D2 i think)!! What makes it even better is that the guy only wants $200 for it! Only snag is that i have to wait until later this week or sometime next week b4 the guy will let me pull it.
Anyone have any advice on setting the pinion for the rear? like specifically how to? Im guessing mayb once i get the pinion finder it will be self explanitory?
