new meats for the exploder

slapped a new set of tires on my new explorer! had to get rid of the dinky 235x75r15 stockers.

have a little bit of cali lean going on
ordered shackels for the back and they are in the mail. will throw an aal if i end up wanting a little more lift out of the rear.

decided on a set of 32x1150r15 BFG all terrains

Not bad. I bet the shackles will get you the height you want.

How does it get along with the tires. Should be running 3.73s on there, right? I felt like our 97 explorer 4.0L with 3.73s and auto was kind of a dog with 31s.

Looks good, once you get the back raised up a bit it will be much better

You know what sucks about that year Explorer, is the reflective brown window tint. Ours had that too so I never tinted the front windows.

i havent looked at it yet, but was planning on some tint in the near future. is it a film or is it made into the glass? i was just planning on slapping on some 5% all the way around. exhaust first though

Slam it, SC it, throw on some Saleens or Cobras, and have a badass lowered AWD Explorer.

The tint is part of the glass. Even with dark tint all around the rear is going to be reflective.

One day I want to pick up a regular cab 4x4 ranger and swap in a built 5.0L with the AWD transfer case, lower it a couple inches (2wd height) and put a nice quiet exhaust on it. It would make a fun daily driver.
