    Hey guys, looks like i gotta keep my 2000 Explorer Sport 2door 4x4.... I wanted to go get something new, but it just does not seem to be in the funds at the moment.... So i gotta do somethin to it to make it fresh to me. I was thinking rims and a new touchscreen headunit in the future...

    Could some of you guys show off your (same gen as me) Sports with 20s on em? Id like to get some ideas...

    Search "TT or Torsion Twist" and you'll find most everything you need.

    Thats good to hear. I not trying to go to crazy with the truck but wish i could more out of the 4.0, dam things feels like it choking. I love me some turbo but thats def not happening haha. Already did the intake and looking into some exhaust options. Also gas mileage sucks pretty bad lol. I like the little mods you did with the led's in the door switches by the way. Those are the kinds of mods i like to do myself, not store bought.
