Nothing specific.

With the explorer stock I got 16 mpg, with the tcase converision and 33s I am still getting 16. Wonder what it would be with the 235s instead.

Built a front reciever/hitch for a recovery point. I also cut the two rear cats off and brought it into a y pipe with a thrush muffler and tail pipe. All 2.5" pipe after the y, now it sounds like it has a 5.0L

Dirty Gilr's Explorer

Working on the dirty Girls tcase, picked it up from liv2mx a while ago, split it in half and found some shifter bushings broken. All this for $1.09

TT and shackles tomorrow, body lift probably sunday.

Haven't decided on rims yet, but most likely going to get 33x12.50-15 bfg at ko. Not a big fan, but I get a stupid deal on them so why not.

Got the TT and shackles on hers, but haven't done the body lift yet. I did get the tcase done and bought the driveshafts today for the swap. Was gonna do the swap on the case but I burned my upper arm at work yesterday so I am sidelined today. Maybe do it Friday at work.

Got a tcase shifter today and got it installed. Also just wrapped up her 2" Body Lift. I should be getting her 33x12.50 AT KO's tomorrow. Apparently there is a shortage of those tires. Took 2 weeks to get them shipped in. Nobody had them.

I already got her soft 8 15x8 rims last week.

Replaced my timing cover gasket last week and did the timing chain. Needless to say at 260K the oe chain was a little sloppy lol.

I picked up a engo 10000s for the eb last week, gonna build a front bumper for my explorer and mount my old m8000 on it. Thinking of building a rear bumper with tire carrier as well.
