Default 1996 Ford Explorer 4.0L Manual Trans 4x4 *GONE*

Well it's a sad day, but it's a necessary step to my next project.

Someone very well could buy this and throw a torsion bar in it and have a very capable budget beater!!!! I have beat on this thing hard in 3 states and 2 countries and It has been a great wheeler.

FYI, my sister-in-law works for a junkyard and a replacement torsion bar is only $10

On to the details...

4.0L V-6 Runs good, but with a knock (lol) it's been that way for 5 years and still running strong - MAKE OFFER

5 speed Manual Trans - M5OD R1 4x4 - $100

BW1354 Manual T-case with shift linkage - $200

Ford 8.8 4.10 gears disc brakes - $200

Aussie Locker for 8.8 31 spline - $200

Front D35 IFS 4.10 gear (non disconnect) - $100

Front bumper/prerunner thingy - $200

Front Curt Reciever hitch - Fits rangers and Explorers - $100

Rear Trailer hitch - $30

2" Lift shackles, homemade 3/8" thick, 1" longer than the warrior shackles for a true 2" lift - $50


31x10.50-15 Radial RVTs with lots of tread, but I only have 3 - Make Offer
N78-15 SUPER THING - Best spare tire ever! - $20
31x10.50-15 spare tire MT but worn unevenly - $10

Four Aluminum american racing Gambler style wheels. One has holes a bit rounded out from tire falling off - $75 (scap value)
Most of the body panels are shot, but the hatch isn't too bad (one dent at the upper left corner)

This was an OEM manual trans vehicle, so pedals colum, dash, etc could be used to convert one to a manual trans.

Everything except the winch and radios is available for part out, just let
me know what you need!

The truck is available whole as well, I have yet to remove anything, but it would need a torsion bar to be drivable.

If you want pics of specific stuff, most of mine are action shots, let me know and I'll try to get them quickly.

I did just do the ball joints and tie rods, and had the front diff out to check for damage!


inside, aside from being dirty is in pretty good shape.

Currently propped up on a jack stand, but looks like this.
