I really like your flairs you don't see those around.I like your console too went to the junk yard looking for seats and didn't see any consoles like that.It would be nice to have a way to hold a drink.
I have seen a few consoles but not many in good shape...the flares are really hard to find...

Looks good, keep up the good work. Next is an 8.8 rear diff and the list never ends or you don't have the Bronco 2 fever.
Thanks! I have an explorer 8.8 waiting till I figure what gears to run...also have a 35 diff for the front...that way I can just pull the third member and swap it out after the gear change

When I put long arms on it felt better right away too.ľm going to need tires this year I was wondering if your 35s rub on the inside of the tire. I'm lower than you though. Do you know your wheel offset?I like your flairs more but Jim has access to rubber ones that will work good for my set up.

5.13's with those 35's will work great for you. If you have stock 4.10's now, thats what the gear calculator will tell you also.

4.88's are good for 32-33's and the 5.13's work well for the 35's.

my tires rubbed before i did the cutout flares, even with the body lift...i think i could remove the body lift now and still clear them with the cutouts. it helped me to go to 8 inch rims, my tens really pushed them out there.

I think all ttb d35's have the same axle spline count. There is a difference between the ttb [90-97]and sla [98-up] diff' tho, the ttb is reverse rotation.

This, I'm wondering how it'd all go together.. (Like what angle and location the radius arm mounts end up relative to the frame.) Please take lots of pics if you have time.

5.13's are available. However, I dont remember where I got mine (Reider Racing maybe?). I have had the D44 for a long time now. :headbang:

BTW, I also run 8" wheels with my 35's. Gives you the extra bead pressure when aired down, and I think they look better.
