I'm a member of another forum that has a thread like this, and it's kinda cool to recognize a truck on the road and tell the owner you saw them, or to be seen by someone else who recognizes your truck. So... Today I saw a gold 3rd gen explorer, had a pretty big lift and at least 33s on it. It was on the CSU Long Beach campus parked near the east turn-around. I've never seen it before around Long Beach. I also see a white 3rd gen all the time, probably with the same lift and tire size, parked on Atherton in front of the apartments formerly known as Baycrest (can't think of the new name) in Long Beach. So 2 lifted 3rd gens running around Long Beach, maybe these things are starting to become more popular now that they're getting older.
