    I want to put together a permanent section which would feature some of the top builds on our forum. Like the top 10 from each generation.

    If there have been rigs which have helped you on your path to modification, or if you believe your own rig is a "benchmark" rig for a specific modification such as a SAS, or engine swap please post it in this thread.

    Post a couple pictures, a link to the build thread, or registry for that truck and a short description as to why you think that rig should be included.

    I hope we can put something great together:salute:

    Also nominate Rick's Bronco. It inspired my build. Met him in person at AFN two years ago and there is so much attention to detail on his rig it's ridiculous. Great build and he has a seemingly endless knowledge of all things mechanical.

    2nd Gen:

    [MENTION]turboexplorer[/MENTION] Great SAS build! I still want first right of refusal if this ever goes up for sale! :)

    [​IMG]

    3rd Gen:

    [MENTION]trayson[/MENTION] Clean street build.

    [​IMG]

    4th Gen:

    [MENTION]asull85[/MENTION] Nice purpose built rig.

    [​IMG]

    5th Gen:

    I haven't paid too much attention to this generation, but I'll find my favorites soon.

    Ranger:

    [MENTION]DB_1[/MENTION] Has always been one of my favorites!

    Very cool thread! Funny thing is I'm fairly selfish in all honesty, I use the search button to try and find info on topics when needed and then on occasion post up a question when I can't find an answer on my own first. But beyond that, I haven't really looked around the forum much else. I know a lot of the OLD SCHOOL rigs from my first go around 10+ years ago but crap, looking above there's some seriously badazz SAS rigs on here now!!!

    Thanks for the nomination FR-425, it's getting there! I'm finally having a lot of fun enjoying it rather then building it!!! Reading my VERY first post in my build thread is kind of cool cause I basically stuck to the plans and what I say I'm going to build is virtually exactly what I'm daily driving these days!

    That said....

    This Explorer is the sole Explorer responsible for the direction I went with my Explorer.

    It was my intention to park my Explorer next to this one and have people say " LOOK AT THOSE TWO BAD ASS EXPLORERS !!!!!!! "
