Hello everyone. I have a 95 bronc eddie bauer with e4od and 351 that i was using for a daily commuter but just picked up a 91 explorer. So I am looking at wanting to make it a rig I can drive to the trail and then drive home. Considering I live 2.5 hours from rubicon it will see some pretty serious wheeling. I am looking for any good ideas but must say I am on a tight buget so nothing too radical please. Thanks for listening and I apprecaite any help.

Thanks

Hey thanks for the navigation suggestion. That is awesome. I also never thought about modifiying the gas tank either. Once again thank you guys for the suggestions.

How does he have three posts in this thread, and a "0" post count?

I would say build under breaking point of each component, and build solid.

i'd recommend 4" lift and 33's (35's if you cut your fenders), with a rear locker. skid plates under trans and t-case are a great idea too. removing the rear bumper (which always hangs up on stuff) would be good as well. replace it with something smaller.

that's basically the combination i've been running and it's been great. here's some clips of my bronco (and friend jeeps) on the rubicon.

if you don't run a gas tank skid plate, be aware of it's being there at all times. it does have a tendency to hit stuff. i have a hitch receiver on my bronco and i've left it there just because it hangs down lower than the tank a little, so it usually hits stuff first.
