    Guys,


    Just picked up a 97 Mountaineer AWD, completely stock. Of course I can't leave well enough alone. :p
    Can I get one of those grilles with those horizontal bars (Main grille and lower opening) for a Mountaineer or is that just for the Explorers? The grille/headlamp bezel look like they're one-piece.

    Also, which wheels can I get for it? I prefer Ford wheels and 16", maybe something from a Ranger or Mustang?

    Thanks for any help.
    Lou.

    Do 94-up Mustangs share the same wheel pattern? That opens up a lot of options. ;) Which other vehicles share that wheel pattern?

    Also, what companies are good when looking for those billet or polished grilles? Do you have any links?

    Thanks.
    Lou.

    I dunno about your grille question, not many options as far as that goes. Most mustang wheels would fit fine though

    Good to know about the Mustang wheels. I assume Ranger ones will work also but I don't remember seeing any that stand out.
    It's a shame about the lack of grilles, a good-looking grille can really change the looks of a vehicle.
    BTW, we here in Greenville didn't forget what you guys did to our Furman team. :p

    Mounty grill...

    I know alot of Exploders that would love to have the mounty grill... If you want, you put some chrome mesh (or colored) behind it with neons or something. As for covering it, thats not really all too possible.
