That 'xplorer looks good Jaskel...
its in darn good condition.

Just curious though, what made you purchase an Explorer after having a Rex?
Also,
Where are you planning on getting the wheels and tyres from???
I doubt there are many places downunder that will stock 20" tyre and rims with the required weight rating...

Although I could be wrong, keep us posted on how you go.

you need to go larger on rim size because twinkies are not going to fill the wheel well good and look small. twinkie two's will look better or even 24"s

It seems a bit odd to reduce off road ability on a vehicle designed with enhanced off road ability. - Just an observation.

It looks good... but for me itīs a sad thing to lose the versatility of your truck, i mean, most of the cars can out-maneuver me (and you, even with the modifications), but i can get to places theyīll never see (i had already) and haul/carry way bigger and heavier loads...

In the other hand, you still have more heavy duty (more resistant to wearing) hardware than more cars and itīs a plus aaaaaaaand well if you plan to keep it on road it still gives you a higher driving position and makes a nice city cruiser so if thatīs what makes you happy, enjoy it, i give you full support

P.S.: Still i wouldnīt lower my truck (well maybe if someone made me an indecent proposal $$$$... and i woke up...)
