My '93 Ranger didn't have an under hood light, nor does my '96 Ranger.

Hey all...just wanted to ask a few questions. 1) On my rear overleaf
springs for a '91 Explorer, there are some spacers coming out in between
the springs. I was just wondering if I could just take the springs off
and restack them or do I need new overleaf springs. 2) Does anyone
know of a good way to clean the undercarriage of a car. I want to get
rid of all the gunk that's building up under there. And 3) Concerning
the Cobra R rims, what is the best way that I can put them on my '91
Explorer. I really don't want to drill out the center hole on the rims,
can I possibly go with new brakes or something newer like on the newer
Explorer's so that the rims can fit with no drilling. Thanks for all
the input. Keep on going Ford Tough!!!!!!

The hood lamp has also disappeared from Explorer's. ' 97 was the last year
to have 'em standard on XLT's.

The hood lamp must be listed on a Ford bean counters list as a way to save
.50 a vechicle.

Hey can any one recomend to me a good lift for a stock 87 bronco II? I
want to run 31's or 33's if possible. This is my daily driver so I
don't want to be eating tires w/ front end problems. Also will I have to
mess w/ gearing to handle these larger tires, my stock 2.9 and 5 speed
give good power still? Thanks, any responses can be sent to the server
or to me at tjspamp
