    So far, so good. :thumbsup:
    Although since it's summer time I think I need to worry more about the rocks then the water.

    It's been awhile, so I thought I'd post some brand new pics.

    So what do you think?

    Are those All-Pro or Marlin sliders? They look similar to Toyota pre-fabs.

    Looking good. :thumbsup:

    So as some may know, I've recently been on a quest to wheel my Explorer every possible weekend for as long as it would let me...:p:...and so far my record stands at 10 runs in 10 weeks...:eek:

    1 Big Bear-12/07/07
    2 Big Bear-12/08/07
    3 Lucerne Valley-12/19/07 (It was a quick run by myself on the way to work, so no pics)
    4 Big Bear-1/05/08
    5 Cleghorn-1/11/08
    6 Truckhaven-1/18-20/08
    7 Big Bear-1/25/08
    8 Victorville-2/02/08
    9 Cleghorn-2/09/08
    10 Glamis 2/15-17/08

    So after all this I've decided to take a little break and let the Ex rest. While it was a whole lot of fun, the cracked cross member I found the day before Glamis made me realize that I can't just keep beating it into the ground. I love my truck just a little to much. Next up, hopefully some suspension work with the occasional run thrown in...:D

    Since the Ex has been so good to me for the last two months, today I decided to give it a little extra attention by painting a lot of the fading trim ultra flat black...

    I started running out of daylight, so the pics aren't the best. I'll try and get some better ones tomorrow.
