Smile 91 explorer eddie edition

hey all, wats up, im new on this site, but im known on dodgeintrepid.net, thirdgen.net, and soon the explorer site.
wat im getting is a 91 explorer 4x4 eddie bower edition, 4.0 L v6, automatic, rusty, nasty green, 197,xxx with a rebuilt motor. they say that theres a bad trans seal thats burning the trans fluid through the exaust, i dont believe it, but there are never any puddles... ideas?
anyways, here are my plans

do all the body work, including 1/4 plate steel replacing the stock rocker panels, dont ask, just experiene from offroading in my 93 eagle vision esi, lol
6" lift kit
3" body lift kit
16" black steel wheels (cheapos but good looking) with bead locks
31-34" tall tires
custom bumpers including the rear with a build in trailer hitch thats WORKS!!!
custom step bars and grab handles (my girlfriend is a lil short)
then get the car sprayed a high gloss pearl white from PPG
0% tinted windows
make interior and electronics flawless
a winch with a way to have the front mount wich usefull for the rear too
2 15" subs, if i go that way, i might not, waste of money
aftermarket tail lights
2nd gen explorer badge kit
blue headlights
custom grille
custom lighting system

what i wanna do is just make an off roading beast, considering there is no eplorer around here even with a lift kit. its a first!!!!(for here)
these are the plans, and so far my plan is going good, just gotta pick the damn thing up and fix the leak before FORD gets on my bad side, im a chevy guy that drives everything BUT chevy, go figure!!!
i will keep ya guys posted with pix, progress, and let me know if any of ya guys wanna sell something listed above that will help me out cheap, its a budget build, yeah!!

i will need
winch
tail lights for 91-94 explorer
16" wheels that have 5x5.5 lug pattern, im sure thats wat it is, but might have a set laying around??
tires obviously
maybee if someone has the front of the lift kit, i would buy that to make my own rear lift
interior parts, window motors, pair of front fenders, explorer badges, window switches with good lettering

alright, im done taking ur time, if you got anyting that might help in a way, throw it out here, let me know!!!! thank you guys

btw, DESPERATLY NEEDED : 1982-1992 CAMARO/FIREBIRD WINDSHIELD

your trans fluid problem is most likely a bad vacumn modulator.....its leaks fluid past it and it goes intot he intake and is slowly burned through the engine.

I just replaced mine for $15

"31-34" tall tires"

That is kind of a broad tire range.

"0% tinted windows"

That's like wheeling a rape van, you wont be able to see anything around you.

5x5.5? thought they had 5x4.5? anyway sounds like a wasteful build.

im still here
no pix yet, sorry
just picked it up btw, and age dont matter
i wasnt sure about wat tire size i wanted, thats y i said 31-34 or watever, cuz i didnt know if they fit, then i heard of a guy with 36's stock ride height.
0% you can see out from the inside, and thats how i want it.
and how would this be wasteful
