    Hey everyone! New member here and wanted to show off my ride! It's a 2003 Mercury Mountaineer with about 165K miles. It has the BTF Lift on it with 365/75/R16 BF Goodrich All-Terrains. I'm hoping to order the BTF Control Arms soon, then new struts and bigger tires!

    I plasti-dipped the front grill and the little plastic underneath it black, and the taillight covers! I've ordered a lightbar to go into the slot at the bottom. The fog lights have also been changed to a 55W Amber bulbs.

    Lastly, I took out the stock radio and put in a Pioneer touchscreen.

    Thanks for checking it out!

    My approval of those dipped tail light bezels is of the highest order. Nicely done.

    i like the armrest in the back, but to me, the emblem looks a little out of place. I'd say center it or leave it off.

    Yeah I was thinking the same. I thought the edge would look cool but it just looks weird. I'll move it to the middle but see if toward the bottom looks okay. Next is to cover the armrest and to add more mesh to the front. I'm hoping to fill the bottom hole and the grills with the fog lights.

    was literally just going to ask that...i was thinking its possible if you tap into the air duct going to the 2nd row air vents, but their flow is low enough as it is and splitting it again would be pointless. Great idea though! i'd totally do the same if i didnt utilize the backseat all the time.

    I though about making it usable, then also thought about cutting all the ducting out and making it into a secret compartment. I ended up just leaving it all in there. So if the second row was to make the air flow toward the feet off the first console it would flow through the second console. as wbrudi said the flow off the first was always week to begin with. I'll test it out later if I take the car out.

    Edit:

    Alright so as you can see the large open section under the square tray thing. This ends up letting out most of the air being sent through the back console. I'm sure a little is making it through the far back. I couldn't feel it with my hand but, eh not much of a concern. At least now I have another place to put crap. and I love that I have something to make my x different.

    Hello! New-ish member to this forum and finally got some upgrades on my mountaineer. Not the best picture, my apologies. Soft 8's soon to be mounted once I get tires and more mods to come!

    I always thoroughly enjoy seeing mountaineers with bull-bars (or the far more elusive full brush guard). Thanks for putting one on!

    I am in the middle of painting my 17" chrome Limited rims - so a progress shot of just the fronts in their new gloss black paint:

    Rears are currently off the car in primer - will be black in around 1 hours time.
