Sneak peek with my invisible tires..

Was out measuring to figure out tire size. Looks like 305 in front and 335 in the rear. 19x9.5 front wheels, 19x10.5 in the back. Suspension and brakes this winter too.

Sits really good. What year exploder rear? What backspacing on the front and rear. What plans do you have for the suspension.

The wheels are 19x9.5 +35 on the front, 19x10.5 +20 on the rear. To run them with the explorer rear you need 2.5-3" of spacer. I'm switching to a crown vic rear which should be perfect with this offset. Hopefully doing a 4 link in the rear and coil overs front and rear. That's if oil prices go up. :roll:
Happening for sure are new gauges and cruise control via dakota digital and adding a/c. Already have a power window kit sitting there ready to install too.

Put one of the fronts together. Tons of room with a 275/35ZR19. My truck also doubles as a drying rack for my kids hockey gear. Lol

What year of crown vic rear are you going to use? widths changed I think in 03 when they went to the aluminum cross member in the front. I am loving your project!! I had to go with new leaf springs in the rear of my truck due to the project draining my account. But I hope to make a change to a 3 or 4 link setup. for now I may get the Caltrac bars to eliminate wheel hop. But then I think deal with it and put the money of the caltracs towards a better setup like a 3 or 4 link. Main thing is I want to get back to some autocrossing some but mostly street driving.
