I know someone who has a 2004 explorer 8.8 with disk and 3.73 will that fit what year range explorers do I need to look at. By the way good work on this truck.

Those did turn out nice. I've been thinking about what I want to do with my shocks too. I was thinking about slicing my stock upper mounts and bending/ rewelding them so the shock was straight inline with the frame and then building a lower. Hadn't thought about going to a shaft mount style shock. That looks really good.
i like the spare tire carrier idea...I can't remember though, are you using a rear mounted gas tank instead of the stock in cab? If so, are there any clearance issues for the spare tire?

Can you tell me if you noticed a lot stiffer ride and were you able to get a decent alignment as to not rip up tires with the camber issues?
