Default Just another 2nd Gen Explorer SAS

Buddies dad picked up KyleM's old explorer sport DD, gonna sas with full widths. He used to have a 79 f150 truggy. Now he wants something more dd friendly and reliable. I agreed to do the work for him, I look at it as practice. My wife has a 98 XLT V8 explorer and in the spring shes getting a D30 and 33's.

Run down on this build.....
1995 Explorer sport
4.0L m5ord and 1350 (eventually auto of some sort and most likely a 1354)
78/9 D44 5.13's Aussie, old school yukons (the good ones) with ctms
9" with 5.13 and spool
38.5x14x15 TSL's on Beadlocks (my old locks I built years ago)
Radius Arm front with EB coils, maybe an 78/9 steering box (maybe)



Before Pic, who's straight,clean ranger is that? Looks similar to Kyles beat and dented ranger


Got the old 8.8 out and a 9" in position. temporary on the mono leaf. Plan to change that later. But needed to get the rear sitting on the SOA to get ride height so I could set the front. Thanks to pop-tart for welding up the rear spring perches. I recently moved into a new house and won't have my 220 for my compressor, plasma, and welder till tomorrow.










Where'd it all go?



Setting up the gears at the shop today.

Started mocking up the coil buckets, trac bar mount, and gear box mount. Spent some time building a plate to strengthen the frame rail along the gear box mounting. Got the drivers frame rail all cleaned up. Still need to clean the pass rail. Also had to unfubar some previous fubaring on the front axle housing.

Pop-tart stopped and helped out with a bunch of stuff today, thanks Buddy

Ok, no rush, just collecting parts for sarahs. That pump will most likely get used on her swap in the spring. What did you want for it?
