    OK, I've been around for a little while and Decided it's time to get my ideas together in one easy to find thread. I hopefully will join "the Elite" Pretty soon. This will just make it eaiser to get my Stuff together.

    So, my name Is Scott. I live in Michigan. I'm not too into wheeling yet, but I hope to get into it once My truck grows a bit. My Trucks name, for now, is L4CX. It stands for Lifted 4 Christ eXplorer. When I finally lift it, it will become Jolly Green Giant. I'm pretty sure someone else has this name so just yell at me if you do. I'll Change it. L4C is a truck club that a few of us have come up with around here. Enough about me though, It's time to Look at the truck. For now, most will be "I want to do this..." Instead of "I've done this...." Here's A picture.

    It's a 1996 Ford Explorer XLT. Has about 162,000 Ish miles. I got it from my Dad for a wedding present last spring. ( Got married August 11th) It was his and he saw that I wanted a Jeep. He doesn't like Jeeps, so He baught a new explorer (2002 Xlt V6) and gave me his old one. I must say I was not happy at first because I wanted a Jeep so badly, but you guys have Turned me into an Explorer Guy. I think it's for the better. :D Jeeps Guys are Too cocky. (No, Offense to any Jeepers)

    I like that cb mount! Also, the jet propelled hovering platform I'm sure will make it super capable! It just wouldn't flex so well;)
