Well after purchasing a few different rigs and crap hitting the fan with my daughter and scrapping the other for some extra money I now have a small fleet of explorers.
this project went bye bye along with its part rig. Kept tires and rims.
http://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r83/cadensdaddyjason/DSCF0641.jpg

Replaced with this 92 explorer which was a victim of a t bone and then a roll over. 4.0 with less then 45k on it and a recent rebuilt a4ld. 3.27 gears.:(

http://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r83/cadensdaddyjason/random127.jpg
after finding significant damage to the b pillars, and having to replace the windshield, drivers window and rear corner glass I then thought i would just swap bodies from my 2wd on to this.

http://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r83/cadensdaddyjason/DSCF0721.jpg

Then I would have a 4 dr 4wd trail rig, But just when I thought I had it all figured out I ran across this 1991 eddie bauer for $150.00, it needed a fuel pump, has 3.55's for gears and warn manual hubs.
Plans are to give it a budget boost with shackles for now and spring spaces. Replace the almost new 235's with 30x9.5x15's. Wheel it for a bit and see how well it handles. Since the rockers are shot and it has almost no core support. I will most likely take them off the red one and make new ones for the sport.

Not looking for it to be pretty, just wanna have something to play in.:thumb::dance:

EDIT NOW PROJECT SPLODER V.4.0
So, is the 4th time the charm?
I picked up this 94 Sport 2 weeks ago, I knew it had a bad head gasket(no big deal) Since I have a few extra motors laying around.
Specs as of now.
4.0 with Mitsu 5sp trans.
L/S 3.73 8.8
D35TTB
(3) 31" Procomp Xterrains and one Wrangler MTR on American Racing rims.
Sweet tint Job!
This one is way cleaner then the other 2 projects that were rotting and are now donating drivelines to other rigs and are going to get crushed this weekend to pay for this one.
New Goal is motor swap when I get time and get this effing thing to silver this summer since I failed last summer.
Pics while sitting in an apple orchard drive waiting to get strapped to Alboy79's house since the motor gave up the ghost.:sonicjay:

So, since I blew up my saturn a few months back, I have been driving my tan explorer. Well I stole the tires from the 2dr to put on my 4dr. Upon removing the rear driver tire from the 2dr I noticed a broken wire. I traced the wire up towards the fuel pump. I then just decided to hook it back up hit the key and the pump fired up. I cycled the key a few times to prime the system and it fired right up with year old gas in it.:dance: I let it idle for a few minutes to get oil everwhere then I took it for a ride around the yard, now this spring I have to do a bit of repair to my grass.:hehe:
It runs great and spins around quick.:erica:

replan on the replan which has been planned over again. I just really need to get the damn thing running. This summer I have managed to buy and fix or buy and part out enough crap to not only cut into my time for a motor. There was some good stuff that came out of it though.
Paid 800.00 for this gem.
http://i55.tinypic.com/245iiko.jpg
Sold the 460,c6,205 for $700.00
misc interior stuff for an additional $100.00
Traded the doors and fenders for a 3 year old H&R shotgun.
and ended up in keeping

So what has been done to date you ask?
Well fixed and sold a mini-van, fixed my DD several times as well as my wifes van bought a pellet stove with my build money to ultimately save money in the end and finally have my build money back after I took it out of taxes. I do start it and move it for mowing once in a while so my inlaws yard don't look all hill jacked up.
Maybe in the next week or two I can get the motor in before I go to Ann Arbor for a month for Carlees next heart surgery.

Just a little update......

front pinion was very loose and locked up when turned, brgs shot and has a small piece of tooth missing. Diff was full of mud and who knows what else.

Cleaned it all up, new brgs on the pinion and re-shimmed everything the best it can be. Will probably be fine till you decide to re-gear.

Wheel brgs were f'ed on the pass. side so that got new brgs as well.

Motor is just about all ready, fired it up and seems to run good :woot:

Few little wiring details to fix and now we will move on to running some brake lines.

Greg, if you get a minute, fire it up and see where the rev limiter is.

Will do Jason. Would also like me to see how long it can stay on the rev limiter?

Shotgun

Nope just see if it revs to the redline. We're thinking with out the cam sensor it will only hit 4k ir so.

Up on the hoist, gonna run some brake lines this morning.

looks to have some kind of locker in the rear by turning the axles, clicks when turning the wheels independant and locks up when turning the pinion.

May need a limit strap in the front, but the driveshaft does not seem to bind at full drop.

it developed a power steering fluid leak from the gearbox so I have a seal kit to repair it. Jason has some parts that he found that I need to finish up.

Box fixed, engine fixed, old shocks cut off. And first flex done. Needs some trimming.
