    Monroe struts all around? Thought you had done a coilover conversion? What happened to your XD Hoss wheels? I see you have 2nd gen wheels on it. Curious. :scratch:

    Brian was right, I had a little accident while wheeling bent my wheels and busted my coil overs so I put the struts back on and take it easy on it now. Only easy trails for it now.

    :eek::eek::eek:Dag MAAANNNNN, you did the d## thing with that grille! I have been wanting it on my truck since it came out, I pass by the dealership daily and was like dam its hot, Im new to this really and liked it on the pick-up but knew it would be hella unique on an explorer and man it does, great job man.. I was looking for one to modify but couldnt find one..i searched ebay like crazy. I got to the point I was looking for the measurements to get letters cut or someting and try to recreate it....Where'd you find yours? Did you do a write up you wouldnt mind sharing? :):):):)

    I too couldn't come across just corners that were smoked out, but I did find a headlight/corner combo set that was smoked. If you plan on doing both (I presume you will), then perhaps this will be right up your alley?

    There's also a quad set of heads, corners, and tails if you were interested.

    I blacked out my headlights and corners myself as they turned out great. $15 for paint and silicone and about 6 hours of time and the were done. There's a thread on how to do it somewhere in here.

    They will with enough of an offset and a little grinding of the caliper.

    I'm having my ex repainted in late Feb when i have the money. I have paint peeling on the roof and some rust spots. $1500 same color or $1800 any other color. It's currently white with grey trim. Thinking about going all black. Any thoughts on color's? Not exactly sure what i wanna do.

    If you do a color change, your door jams, and engine bay will still be white. Others wouldn't know, but it would bother the hell out of me.

    Something to consider
