In Need Of Help!!
Hey everybody I need sum help with figuring things out here! lol . I own a 2003 4.0l sohc 5sp 4x4 supercab 2dr xlt. Problem is i would like to do the following
1) 2-5 inch lift (i have torsion bars + want coilover)
2) want a better rear end (explorer with disk brakes ;-)
3) and ofcourse invest in EE but not yet ( $$$ )

do the gears match in the explorer's or do i need to re-gear the rear end to match the front. and even if i dont lift the truck what about coilover conversion kits ???? i know you guys can help so any info is great info!!!! Have fun :popcorn:

the ranger and explores came with the same gear rations eithor 3.27 3.55 3.73 or 4.10 you just need to find an axle with the same ratio or swap in the gears from your 8.8

RCD 5" lift will swap your torsion bars to coilovers

Look for a Explorer 8.8 with a LS and 4.10s

Go for the supercharger!

hey thanks guys i figured out i have 4.10 gears. so what year explorer would be best ?? as i dont want to switch out gears cause i want the disc brakes too not a fan of my back drum brakes in the rain and water lol. as for the rcd lift i looked and they didnt make one for the 4x4 for 2003 but please dont quote me on that (sum times u have to move tha ketchup to find the mustard right lol) and will that kit give me EVERYTHING i need to complete the task. and for the explorer axle do i need the master cylinder too ? as well as what other hardware ie. emergency brake cable nuts bolts etc.
