Default " dumb mod questions "

i have been on here for about 45 minutes and cannot find some of the answers i am looking for. i want to do some mods like the explorer over head console/lighted mirrors/dimming mirror mod and don't know the years that will work for my 2000 ranger. i saw the ad and how to di it but what years of explorer will work for the installation in my ranger.....another question is cleaning the MAF....does it really help?.......what about intakes? i am kinda pro and con to the intakes. i have a 3.0l and would like a few more pony's. would a cheap lil intake work and would i actually feel and notice a difference? one more question is what is the average mpg's i should be getting on an easily driven 3.0l? thanks for any input on these issues.

1998 - 2002 explorers

Cleaning the MAF helps keep the truck running smooth

Intake not good unless you spend the money on exhaust tuner and headers

Check the How To section for the air box mod

I don't know all of the years that will work but I know I got mine out of an 99 Explorer. I want to say something like 95-00 or 01 will work.

Edit: Dang you STL. Beat me too it.

I'm not positive on the ending year for the OHC and I think he is right about 95 being the start year

Dont get one with a sunroof cause they mount different and are a pain

LOL!! Its both. Only thing I don't like about the sunglasses hold is that my sunglasses are too big. I don't have stunner shades or anything. They are just my cheap Wal-Mart fishing sunglasses and I can't close the darn thing with them in there.

My sunglasses are safety glasses. My garage door opener deal never works in there anyways.

no... haha... I can't find any online so I texted my ex and asked him to send me a pic of his... from what I can figure it's too wide... ceiling cutout on the console is diff. too since the "hump" in a SD is wider than ours but I'm pretty sure the corners would hit the visors in a Ranger...


Imagine that display w/ map lights & aux. switches (aka sunroof switches) but to cubbies...
similar to this but better looking IMO

I was looking at some SD interior shots and they actually start further back then the Expy OHC. Do you think that would make a difference??

Marie....I still havn't seen any of those in my yard runs, and you know I've kept my eyes peeled for ya.

I think if it's set back far enough, it'll clear the visors. Of course, this all depend on that width oh the console.
