I'm surprised you can't find one. try Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market

just type in the info and search.

2000

Ford Explorer

Texas

Sort by distance

Zip code

Hit search, and chose 6 cylinder, 4.10 gears

if nothing, chose 8 cylinder, 4.10 gears

I think some running boards/ step bars would look good on your truck.

i think that is a good list to start with.

flares
mirrors
lights are good
step bars

that is a good chunk of money. even if you manage to get everything second hand.
