I wouldnt go with 18s or 20s on a explorer. Get some 16s or 17s, some 33 super swampers, and lift her 6 inchs, get a flowmaster, tint them windows, brush guard with a hidden winch, and a air filter, then your good to rally.

Lifting is nice, cuz then you can see everything. Someone I know has a 2 inch lift on his truck, and was drving down the interstate, and saw someone go down on someone while he was driving! He said it was the funniest thing he has seen in awhile.

Ive never heard a V6 that sounds good with exhuast. Id keep it stock....or get a real quiet muffler. Id go for 17s (KMC Stealths if they have'em) with the new nitto all terain tire. Id go for a nice sound system, I reccomend Kicker, JL Audio or Adire. I have a W7 if you're interested ;-)

i'll give you suggestions on what not to do:

putting spinners or other obnoxions chromes on there
a very loud annoying bass system

seriously, doing either of those just piss everyone off

i dunno what to do. personally i like explorers almost all stock, i can see a lift if you want to pay more for gas, tinted windows arent bad either

Stereo, you seem pretty undecided on weather to sport truck it, or 4x4 it, but untill you decide, both always have *****in stereo's.

New head unit, dependin on how nice the factory ford one is, Subs, Amp, 6x9's, that kinda thing.

Then 4 inch lift, 37 inch tires.

then shave it...

Best of both worlds!

ok well here are my upgrades so far done all by myself

I installed a magnaflow exhaust and left my cat converters on and it sounds very very nice. very smooth and not obnoxious (sp) but pretty loud

pioneer DEH-P4600MP Headunit that i intalled by myself


2 rockford fosgate punch HE 2's with a 1500 watt audiobahn A1500HCX amp



thats all that im doing for now and the tint in the next few days but its going to stay like that for a while
