Factory explorer 5.0 mounts. You need the frame mount and the engine plate.

That is true if you have torsion bar front springs. If you have coil spring 2wd, then you need to make a set. BrianB31 has a design that works well, but is tough to get ahold of these days. PM me your email address if you need to get in touch with him. I will do my best...
