If they are bolt on, $100 is a lot.
But, if they need welding or drilling, $100 might not be so bad.
Westin is set to ship their side bars to dealers starting Oct 12. They
should be bolt-ons,
but I can't be 100% sure until I see them.

I have 235-75 15 on my 1989 bronco II without any rubbing problems. If you
have a 1988 or older bronco II you will have to trim the fenders slightly.

I am also looking for a new hood for my 96 Ranger. If anyone knows of a
cowl or ram air hood that is either new or in still fixable, I'm interested.
My body man and I can fix one that is still halfway descent. Thanks.

From: Barry Nestor
Subject: FTE Small - Rear Explorer bumper

Has anyone on this list by any chance had a bumper replaced on 91-94
(probably) Explorer Sport? I recently backed into someone with my 91 and got
an estimate for the whole repair including the bumper. When the shop took it
apart they saw that not only was the bumper shell trashed but its bracket
assy (right on the inside) was as well. They ordered a new bumper from Ford
thinking the bracket would be included and it came in today with no bracket
but the dealer is not being of any help. My insurance company wants to pay
for it but according to the shop the part is not documented in their crash
estimation guide or by Ford.

I need my car back and the shop is getting frustrated - can someone tell me
what the part# is or where it can be found?

Thanks,

Barry

I had mentioned a couple of weeks ago that we would have
a prize pack for the winning t-shirt design. I forgot
to announce what the prize would be. It will include the
following:

a. free FTE t-shirt, hot off the press
b. 2 FTE window stickers
c. 1 meg web site space (http://www.ford-trucks.com/yourname)
for 1 year
d. email address (yourname ford-trucks.com) for 1 year. If you
already have one, you can have a second or have your 2nd

If we can think of more, we'll add it.

Subject: Re: FTE Small - better brakes for explorer for towing bass boat

I have a 96 explorer and i now tow a pretty heavy bass boat in the 3500 to
4000lbs area my truck is more than capable of towing this weight but it
doesn't stop it very well...I have the allwheel disc and allwheel (abs) system
and in plain english it sucks. I used to tow it with a 92 explorer with rear
drum and rear (abs) only and it stopped much better with a nice feel...I 've
had my new truck re done and i have all new pads and resurfaced rotors all the
calipers work and it still doesn' t wanna stop...I've looked into aftermarket
braking systems but they all run $2,000 area and they need 17" rims to fit
them which means new rims and tires plus the better brakes which means about
$5,000 to $6000 which i don't think so......Does anyone know of a better setup
for this truck i mean does ford have a better or bigger rotor and caliper
setup....I do have the full tow package so i assume there is no extra brake
package for the extra load......Any info is appreciated.

p.s. the bass boat is a 1988 stratos bass boat19' with a 200hp evinrude
motor and a electric evinrude troller motor it has twin 24 gal fuel tanks and
two live wells with two fish finders front and back with a tandem axle trailer
with brakes and a custom cover and its for sale $9,000 major low hours
absoltley mint cond.in the jersey area interested call (973) 613-6499or email

Unfortunately that site, only has hoods for the 93-97, unless someone
knows that a 93-97 hood would fit on a 89-92??

Any other suggestions??
