I'm gonna sell my baby took about a year to complete and has been a great vehicle, moving on to new projects. Please read entire description then send emails with questions. This is 97 Ford Explorer Clear title, no lien. Engine is 4.0 SOHC, came from 02 Ford Explorer Sport Trac that was wrecked only has 100,xxx miles, runs great no noises like earlier year models. These engine produce 205-215 HP, great for a trail truck. I swapped in 5spd tranny so has new clutch,slave cylinder and flywheel. Also swapped in Borg Warner 1354 Manual t-case -very desirable in the Ford Explorer, Ranger and Bronco 2 world. Because the PCM is for auto tranny orginally, bought an Xcal3 Flash Tuner that was custom tuned by Henson Performace, to allow engine to run with out worrying about what tranny is behind, also it can be tuned for more power. Suspension is a custom solid axle conversion in the front using Dana 44 from 79 F-150 narrowed 6inches on passengerside, which allows you to use early bronco dana 44 pass side axle shafts. Front is complete with 4.88 gears, powertrax locker, chromoly axle shafts, yukon -ujoints, all have very little use. 5.5 James Duff Progressive rate springs and dual shocks, James Duff extended Radius arms. Gen 1 Explorer steering box, heavy duty 1 1/4 DOM steering. 15x10 Eagle Alloy 058 wheels, 35-12.50-15 street tread in good shape. Rear is Ford 9in, 4.88 gears, Detroit Locker, Chromoly axle shafts, -spare set of rear chromolys included, disc brake conversion. Rear has Axle under mod, 4-6 in lift springs, has 3in body lift, sunroof, power windows, a/c needs charged, sony speakers in the doors. There is $1000's of dollars invested, not including what a stock explorer is worth. Does have some scratches and small dings/dents from trail use, this truck has been to Moab, UT and Ouray Colorado, drove it down Black Bear pass and thru Hells Revenge in Moab with no issues, it will flex like crazy. Prefer cash, may take full trade or partial trade in cash, if you have equal value trade or one and throwing in cash, send me email with pics, full description, your phone #, do you have a title and is there a lien?, Things that interest me more, Sport quads 06 and Newer 450s, 07, Rhinos, RzR, Ranger Pickups, F350 4x4 Pickups, Mustangs, Camaros, just ask doesnt hurt, if I dont respond I'm not interested -thanx for reading my ad. $55
