    Heat never hot!!!

    i bet the t-stat is stuck open. if the t-stat was stuck closed or the water pump wasnt pumping, you'd be overheating. t-stat is also the cheapest place to start.

    What is my axle? What explorer do i need?

    most likely a 7.5, you need a 96-01 8.8 or if you want drum brakes, a 91-94 will work too

    My AR Build

    I was at a local gun store a few weeks ago and started looking at all the AR stuff. Then last weekend I went to a gun show and started looking some more.

    Thinking about a solid axle swap for my truck...

    i used a D30 on my SAS. but i have a b2 with a 2.9 in it. i dont plan to wheel mine hard either, just use it for hunting, camping, maybe a light trail every now and then. i chose it for a few reasons. 1) cheap for a complete axle-paid $150 for, i can usually find 2-3 for sale...

    8.8 Ford swap

    the axle is gonna be wider than what's in there now, it would look weird unless you put a wider axle up front too. you could use wheel adapters to change the wheel pattern. i'd get an explorer 8.8 if i were you. you'd have disc brakes and the axle is closer to the width you have now. as...

    sas d30 Fabrication

    as stated, above, cut off all the old shit and weld on some spring perches. 2.5" wide should be more than enough. all you need on the axle is a place for shocks, no need for a track bar on a leaf setup. you'll need to weld some sort of spring hangers to the frame as well.
