    Hey so, ive posted before but still new around here. i got a black 02, still stock but i got big plans. but any way i was off roading on monday and since i have the v8 i got a little heavy on the gas pedal and well lets say the ex took control for a little. Everything is fine she still runs perfectly no body damage or anything but after closer inspection i seem to have snapped some bolts on the underside of my car on which seems to be a safety bar guarding the the rear'ish part of the engine area. if you know what im talking about its the first of the two safety looking bars. anyway, help! is this expensive to fix? essential? can i do it later? cause i just had to replace the manifold which drained cash i can spend right now on the ex. Also as soon as the weather clears up i plan on painting my wheels black i got these ones...[​IMG] yay or nay?

    also i lost my orignial post in the vast accumulation of this thread.... so if i can ask again if anyone knows where i can a good, yet cheap honeycomb grille insert, it be awesome if someone could part with that information.

    sorry spam everyone i keep forgetting things i wanted to add! im looking for some of these running boards [​IMG] i am willing to purchase them, trade for the tube ones of my ex or willing to accept very kind donations!!! :D and how would i paint these and the insert in the back bumper that matches? just normal paint? people say that with normal paint it will just wear off with people touching and stepping.

    thanks again!

    Too bad, you can't have one.


    Edit:
    Okay so I don't feel like being a jerk ALL day so I'll throw you a bone and explain myself. I'm not going to answer your question because you not only posted it in the wrong thread, but its obvious you've done absolutely no research whatsoever. I know you're new, and questions are welcomed; but put in at least a little effort.....

    He was banned many moons ago for not honoring purchases people made for his coil spacers. There is a sticky at the top explaining all of this - please research a bit prior to posting.

    Added 2" BTF spacers to the front (none in the rear, but did replace broken stock coils/struts) and 265/75/16 Hankook Dynapro ATMs. I was going to use quick lifts in the rear, but ended up replacing with stock springs. Figured I would need BTF spacers, but she sits pretty level with this setup.

    I like the Hankooks. I also just put a set of Cooper Discoverer AT3's on my old F150. I think I like the Hankooks a little better. They were about the same price.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "cop the lights", but if you mean how did I install them then here's how I did it: I picked them up from autozone and they had a peel and stick backing so I stuck them where I wanted them, wired them together and ran a power and a ground wire from the lights along the driverside where the carpet meets the wall and then out the back and into the trailer hitch parking lights and ground wires, this way the lights come on and off with the headlights. That's definitely not the best way to do it, but it works, and my explorer didn't explode yet, so its all good, for now hahaha

    Had the car not been keyed down the passenger side the paint would be just as close to perfect as a 12 year old daily driver could be.

    BTF 2.25 front 1.75 rear strut spacers, 33X12.5X15 BFG Mud Terrains on DEEP streetlock rims with 1.25 inch spacers with quite a bit of trimming. Thing sits like a pitbull, looks mean.
