RBV wheeler from MO

Introducing myself here. I am a fellow wheeler with a Modified 2nd Gen Explorer. Looking for other wheelers from my area to join on future meets and learn all I can from you guys. I understand this is mainly a Ranger forum, but being that the Explorer is based from them, we have a lot in common.

Anybody interested in going on wheeling events, long distant trips, local gatherings, Tech talk, fab ideas, or just want to shoot the breeze, just let me know.

I have thought long & hard about that. But I have decided to just skip the coilovers and one day do a SAS with a D44 or D60, then go SOA as well. It is the natural progression, so I just figure I will save some greenbacks and go straight to the SAS.

I like that quick disconnect sway bar. How hard is it to get it lined up again to put that pin back in? Seems like you would have to be on perfectly level ground. I need something like that though.

Thanks for the welcome guys, mucho appreciated!


Those disconnects were first made for a Ranger by a Ranger wheeler friend. They work perfect for the rangers, simple & fast to use. Takes about 30 seconds to remove both sides and then swing your sway bar up. Mine are powder coated to my specs. I am not sure about the rules as far as selling stuff on here yet. But he does make them for sale. I will say they are very heavy duty, and has that "Bling" appeal to them.

You guys like the disco's eh? There are only like 3 pair in existence right now but that could change.

Here is one of the other sets currently in use.


If you guys really want them, please pm me.
