Also, go up to the top right of your screen where it says "Quick Links"

Go down the drop down menu to "Edit Signature"

There you can enter your truck's information.

Depending on the wheels, would depend on lowering or lifting.

FX4 level II shifter if its a manual transmission... Expo OHC, Headlight mod, Billet grille,
Since its a 2 wheel drive, maybe a roll pan or somethin... lower it (why lift a 2wd???)
Shorty antenna (about $20 online but looks good)... thats all I can think of now lol

Be prepared to pay a couple hundred for one. As for lifting it... Why not? I do agree though a lowered 2wd is probably better off but there isn't anything wrong with it being lifted.

lower it at least 3-4. That will help increase mileage. O and it sounds like you got the best blue color vista blue.

I found a few explorers around where I live parting out, how much would you expect I'll pay?
Will they fit just like my current seat?
