This has been my toy...

...and I MAY get to keep it. This makes me happy.

If I do keep it the lift comes out, the BFG A/T's are getting sold and it will built more "Street Truck" than offroader. It is after all a fully loaded Eddie Bauer. Don't wanna beat the crap out of it in the bush.

As it sits now...

The EB currently has a 2" lift, K&N intake, Magnaflow exhaust, SCT SF3 tuner and 32" BFG A/T KO's.

Odd seeing those Explorers lifted. I know those gen Explorers have quite a few issues.

:lol2: haha, seems like a lift would be the last thing they would need. But a street styled one may be cool!

No issues with mine, other than what I've done to it. Going back to stock suspension height. Stock 17" wheels....go from there. I love this truck and I really don't want to lose it. The V8 is wicked fun.

If it'll be street truck status, why not drop it? IFS and IRS isn't the best for four wheelin' anyway.

It is getting dropped, but only down to stock height. And then stock wheels and tires are going back on it...and so is the For Sale sign. I'll sell the lift and wheel package separately.

I can't justify $450 per month for a truck that sits in the driveway and collects dust.

And yes Sam, this thing is not very fun to fill up. I could justify the cost if it was an F-Body or a Mustang, but its a truck. Not exactly fast and fun to drive.

Amen to that man. Sell it and get a street toy or just sit on the cash for a while.

I'm leaning towards option 2. I'm sick of monthly payments right now.
