i have a 4.0L from a 91 explorer DISTRIBUTORLESS the only way to go

an M5ORD 5spd and temp a 1354 but will eventually have a 1350-1354 Doubler

rear will be my current 8.8 that you saw at the spring fling in my explorer
and the frt will be that D44 but shortened on the pass side to that of a EB



Yep the Explorer is getting gutted to help build this project and the left over parts will be used on other Cheapthrills RBV's

this is probably one of the last pics of the explorer that their will be

now bear in mind i am on about 10" of lift and 36's

You should be almost bullet proof. I've had good luck with the 44 in mine after I went to yukon shafts and super joints, even on 38s.
