Another fine example of a nicely built rig was Matt Adams’ ’94 XLT. Matt added a K&N Filtercharger to the 4.0L V-6 to help with power. 4.56:1 gears were installed in both the front and rear differentials along with an ARB Airlocker in the rear for extra traction. 33x12.50x15-inch tires are a popular size for Explorers, and Matt chose Dick Cepeks, wrapped around American Eagle 589s. A Superlift 5 1/2-inch lift with antisway bar quick-disconnects allows for ample clearance and flex. For electronics, Matt’s rig features a 130-amp alternator, an Optima battery, PIAA lights, GPS, and a Kenwood 10-disc CD changer.
