01STrunner, you can find them all over eBaymotors.com or just google front brush guard for Sport Trac and you'll probably find one on a craigslist ad near you for cheap.

Thanks guys. I've been wanting to do the cladding since I bought it. Taking the sawzall to the front to get the tow hooks back on made it that much easier to get started. It's such an easy project and makes such a big difference that I wish I had done it earlier. If anyone is considering it at all, just pull the trigger. It's easy, cheap, and makes a big difference, in my opinion.

The tires are 265/75R16 Cavalier Sport King AT. I have been very impressed with them on and offroad.

Looking to go 35s next. I'm actually considering selling the wheels and tires together, but it needs to cover a good portion of buying the 35" KM2s and AEV wheels from my soon-to-be brother-in-law. Anybody interested?

The 32s were great when I was in metro-Atlanta and did 70 mile round trip drives for work 5 days a week, but now that I'm in S. GA, nothing is more than 10 miles away and the offroading is much more flat so I don't need to worry about gas mileage, fast wearing tires, or decreased wheel travel that made me go with 32s in the first place. They have around 10k miles on them and still have the little hair things (never have known what those are called) on the treads.

just got my sport track and im lovin it so far

hey all, new to the forum, just thought i'd post a pick of my 03 ST posing with my girl and my dog while we were playing in the mud. im going to keep , my rig simple, i have a K&N MAF intake, shell top (that's coming off for the summer), a trailer brake controller and hitch so far. im looking to throw some good after market shocks, probably some procomp es 1 or 3000's, tow hooks, and a new tire/wheel combo on it. hopefully i get it all done within the next month so i can be ready for summer fishing/camping/biking. thanks to everyone who's helped me out with questions on my posts, ill post more pictures when i get everything thrown on it.

thanks

No lift or anything cool here I'm getting shackles and torsion keys this summer, painted the trim black. Built my own air intake, got some new wranglers on there, repainted my rusty 'ol steps, an am gunna do some audio work. Doesn't look to bad for an 01 in my opinion

They are. There was a recall on them a long time ago. Mine have been great so far. 40k on them and have been off road a few times. Thanks for the heads up tho.
