Not sure on the Explorer backspacing. It's 1/2 to 3/4 less than the canyons. A very good fit for 31-2s on a stock axled XJ or ZJ IMO.

Nice Jeep, looks good. As soon as mine isn't a DD I will go crazy with it. Thanks for the hitch tip.

It is a rather common unit isn't it? I usually try to be different but this was a good deal. Sweet conformity....

What are your thoughts on the Aussie up front? The ARB looks good, any plans to trim the sides to match the fenders?

I love the Aussie up front exept for icey roads. In full time it pushes straight when I turn. For me a selectable or TruTrac would be a better choice. I hope to park it next winter though and get a beater XJ or ZJ.

Cost of an ARB here? $850 or so US plus shipping. I picked mine up for $500.

Wow! Total $ 850 or even $ 500. Does not even compare with the prices on it with us, we have it costs about $ 2000 + shipping.

P.s. how many kilogram weighs bumper?

I dont think they will know how many kilos the bumper weights unless they do alot of stupid math.
