    Here it is, has some great mods. I take no credit for any of the mods done on this vehicle. The guys i got it from are basically the Messiahs of Explorers. Im lucky enough to live real close to them and help them out occasionally. Im sure some of you will recognize this truck, and know who im talking about.

    Ever since they brought this truck home i had been drooling over it. Not sure why but i immediately fell in love with it.

    Anyways tell me what yall think. I have a 2" skyjacker lift ordered, aals came in today actually. Just waiting on the springs.

    My plan is to have a few more mods done by May so i can go to Moab.

    P.S. I know some of you are going to ask, but the truck has 31s on it and no lift in the pics. Fenders are cut, again i take no credit.

    Sadly no. And these things are so hard to find anymore in the rust belt you can't even find any to snag the bumper, grill, and trim from to dress up the xlt. Now I wish 10 years ago when I saw 1 or 2 limited first gens every time I went to the yard I would have taken some stuff in case I ever owned one lol.

    Im in Texas and this Truck came from Oklahoma. It does have some rust. But they do make replacement Dog legs, and i am pretty handy with a welder. I may do that one day, but for now its getting a lift and a few other things to be ready for Moab in May. The only "parts" im looking for would be a WAAG grill guard, but i hear those are basically non existant.

    Also needs a new headliner and sunroof cover, but thats all down the road. For now she is a great Daily Driver, cruises at 70mph no problem.

    Every time I find a limited I try to get something.

    Took it to the coast, runs great. I actually got 16.5mpg doing 75-80 down to the coast. Just changed the oil and cleaned the MAF. Waiting to get my front driveshaft installed, so i can go do some offroading. Does anyone have any recommendations for better fog light bulbs? These things are terribly dim.

    I might have an answer for you but I need a few more pieces to be sure. I wouldn't want to mislead you. I'm still in the working stages of piecing stuff together.

    Went wheeling yesterday. 60 miles there, 40 miles wheeling, and 60 miles back home. 5 miles from my house the drive side window stopped working LMAO, so i have to look into that. Besides that it did great, even went down a level 4 trail. It scraped and bumped but only crunched the tail pipe, skid plates did there job. I was very impressed what a stock explorer could do. I followed some jeepers for a bit as well, had no problem keeping up.

    Well that was easy, one touch module just came unplugged from the window. So i fixed that. Blower fan made a odd smell yesterday while wheeling, so i pulled that apart and cleaned it just to be sure nothing was shorting it out.

    Yanked off that ugly fire hazard insulation on the hood and all is well! I really am enjoying this thing. Next trip is Big Bend National Park. I do want to fab a rear bumper and tire mount before then though and install my 2" lift.
