    Really enjoying my new 2002 XLT 4x4 4.6V8 toy!

    So far I have:
    Repaired recirculate door
    Replaced all door speakers with Kicker 6x8's
    Replaced the entire radiator, thermostat and flush and filled cooling system
    Modified all interior dome lights to LED panels
    Tinted front side glass to 20%
    Smoked tails and third break light
    Repainted rear "A" pillers from where the wind rubs the paint off those
    Painted FM ant black to match other exterior
    Removed E-brake pads to resolve "clicking" issue in the rear end

    Clear corners for the front are on their way. Not sure what else I plan to do right away. Should prob stop spending money at the moment. LOL

    Here are some pics.

    50 views and no comments? Maybe it needs a few more mods or something.

    They are Kicker 6x8's, the factory speakers are 6x8. So it was an easy install. Added dynamat to the door panels while I had them apart. Sounds pretty good for just a couple door speakers.

    It was a nice day at the lake indeed! We have been over 90 degrees for the last 19 days, so everyone is out enjoying it half nude. LOL
