It's a Koz front bumper. JCR is making a matching rear as we speak.

And yes....the trailer tires are remarkable...it is amazing what you can find on MJ sometimes.

BTW...you don't happen to have a recent picture of your jeep...like right before you traded it in do you? I think my brother in law was looking at it the other day, but I don't know for sure.

What size tires are you running on the xploder, and did you put a lift on it.
I have a 95 that i would like to setup to do light trails, when i plan on taking it over from my wife when i get her something new. I have never seen any lift advertised for them.
Thanks Mike

For a 95 Explorer there's three different types of suspension lifts:
Trailmaster
Superlift
RCD Coilover kit $$$$$$

I'm running a 3 inch body lift with Add-A-Leafs, Shackles and some torsion bar adjustment. Somewhere around 4 to 5 inches of lift total. The tires are 305/70/16's....they fit with some minor fender trimming. It handles the light trails just fine.

back when I had a 95 EB, there was nothing. Cranked the torsion bars, AAL and shackle kit and ran 33"s. But in 95 the torsions bar mounts were welded to the frame. In 96 they switched it to being bolted on, so most kits worked on 96 EXs but not 95....

Very true....at that point the kit becomes a good starting point. I would imagine that any of those could be made to work though.
