Very nice and clean. I dunno if I'd call it "pimped out" though. Keep it going....

Hey man re-size your pic to 800x600 or so so it fits on a monitor. Its a cool pic but it would be even better if you didn't have to scroll to see the whole thing....

Well my X is far from pimped but I like my mods so far.... By the way Jas I like the wheels... I was trying to talk mmpc out of his for 2 months and he wouldn't ever give em up... So I went with the rockcrawlers that you see here... I like em...





Yes I know I still need to get the bumper on there better, but after 3 tries putting it on and taking it off after the body lift, I said hey, good nuff...

These were taken yesterday when I was out with mmpc trying out the new tires... We found a really nice mudhole...

The new bumper is a plus. I think putting on sport trac rims was a bad idea. Doest look good at all.

They are rock crawler knock off's... These are Unique D rings... They were $33 each at Big O tires... I think Discount can get them pretty easily too... They are 15X8's...

i wouldnt call it a bad idea. if he likes it, that's all that matters.

personally, i would put the $450 into saving for some nice aftermarket rims.

the average person wouldn't notice this explorer. it looks like a nice "stock" explorer.



...is that an exhaust tip?
