Small Explorer 4X4 Project 56k Warning...

My 96 Explorer has been a small project, not an Xtreme 4X4 just a moderate trail vehicle that goes most places Jeeps say it wont because its IFS and a Ford. For it not having alot of lift and scraping alot it does go places

It currently has 202k on original engine and 4R55E transmission
Dana 35 front with 4.88 Gears
8.8 Rear with 4.88 Gears open differentials at the moment
2" Suspension
33X12.50 Mud tires
Sway Bars Gone

Future plans, I'm debating on cutting out the IFS in favor of the Solid Axle I have or just going with a custom coil over lift and deleting the torsion bars with the Superlift. Need to get a set of rock sliders and rear locker would be a nice addition.

How she started out.




And it was used to tow and junk cars in the beginning...

On 31's


Reinstallation of the re-geared front diff




My little girl driving it in the back yard


Lilly trying to help with installing a new rack


When it had swampers


On a trail a jeep decided to break down...


Current tires/setup




Ifs "flex" if you want to call it that...lol


And something for the future 78 D44 HP with flat top knuckles $50.00
