      I like to think of your ST as mine since I lost mine :) Rollovers arent fun. Congrats and your ST deserves TOTW.

      We are thinking about a run in March at Gilmer. You in?

      Thanks Brian.
      As long as I'm at home at the time I should be able to make it.
      I'll be in Dallas on 1/31 doing an axle swap on the Limited. Talking to the guy(Mark-Jeeper dude), he seems to know you(Brian) and Rob(GoFast).

      John, email me with some info as to what you are doing at Marks. I do know him. Lets hook up. We are working on another trail truck in my garage right now. You need to try and come by. Mark also told me to stop by this coming weekend.

      Kirby N. - My snorkel is just 3" PVC pipeing from Home Depot. But, I have serious doubts 3" PVC would work good on a stock fender. I have 3" flared fiberglass fenders with more room.

      A few days after I finished my snorkel, Dasfrem posted pics of his sleeker snorkel setup using the ARB snorkel intake attached to 2.5" PVC. Check his setup out:

      Laptop is a powerful tool, but for working on the dash and gages??? hahahaha

      FLEX is the key to fitting in the tight spots

      Are You kidding? I won't change the spark plugs anymore without my laptop. :D:D:D:D
      No, seriously though. I just wish I had a programmer so I could re program my engine for more hp. but I don't want to spend $265 for a chip. I just wish a shop with a programmer around here would just do the work for an hour's labor ($45-$60) My Ford dealership said they would reprogram mine to calibrate the spedometer but they wouldn't take it any further than that.

      Kirby, I used a 4" PVC cap and 4 screws to hold it in place. :D

      Nicaraguense:
      Yep, I remember at some point you saying your aunt was a filipina.
      The laptop is great for asking questions in chat while working on the truck. :D

      I just wish so bad

      I just wish so bad that I had a laptop with a program and a port for the OBDII port for a re-programmer. But I can just imagine the mega $$$$$ that would cost.

      I can't tell you what the shaft diameter is, trying doing a search on the site. But, I do know all Explorer axles shafts are 31 splines. And if you are ordering a locker from Powertrax they know what size the shaft is already.

      The front skid plate is a Frod Ranger part. But, it's for looks only. Don't rely on it for protection. I'll be building a real skid plate soon. The sliders were made by a woman that used to be on this website. But, she has dissappeared. Your best bet is just go to a local 4x4 shop to get some made.

      Nice ST Branden. I always wondered if you could take one of those front hitches and flip it over. Thanks for the info. :thumbsup:
