    Hey guys, I've been lurking here for some time and now that we've upgraded that to the 2016 Explorer Sport w/the Ecoboost 3.5L TT figured I'd chime in here w/what we've done to the Explorer so far:

    SunTek CXP Ceramic Tint (55% full windshield, 18% 2 fronts, 80% over rear privacy glass)
    SunTek PPF-C Clear Bra (full front bumper, 1/4 hood)
    OptiCoat Pro Plus 2.0 Ceramic Paint Protection Coating
    OptiCoat Glass Pro Glass Coating
    Gloss Black "EXPLORER" Hood Emblems
    BumperPlugs.Com OEM Ingot Silver Front License Plate Frame Plugs
    MDesign Carbon Fiber Intake
    OEM BOV's set to VTA
    EcoBoost Twin Turbo Decal
    EcoBeast Badge Overlay
    EcoBeastBillet.Com EcoBeast Billet Aluminum Battery Tie Down (I helped to design this product)
    And we put in the seat covers from Target to protect the leather from the kiddos feets, lol.

    Looking forward to future modding w/a set of downpipes, a tune, and some carbon fiber and billet goodies to come later :)

    Does disconnecting this bridge improve the audio quality?

    By it's self it may not. It's easy enough to get to and pull the connectors apart. My rear door speakers did sound better as they were getting more power, as little as it is.
    I am still deciding what to do with the Front door replacement. They are 6x9's. But with Crutchfield you can get included for free, a adapter/riser ring that allows a good selection of 6 3/4 component speakers.

    Installed Type S Plug & Glow - LED Smart Lighting (ambient Lighting) on the front, second and third row. It includes a phone app that you can control the color, brightness, glow, blinking, strobe, etc via bluetooth. I followed the Ford OEM Ambient lighting kit instruction for installing the power source, basically tap to BCM C2280D pin 18, it turns on with the headlight and when you open the door. Pretty cheap compared to the Ford Ambient Lighting kit, it cost me around $80.

    What did you use for your blinker tint? Overlays? I have Overlays on mine but they show all these little cracks in them now and want to re do them

    I did tint, however I cant remember what the brand was he used. He mentioned it was the best exterior tint to use (of course he would say that). He did the amber on my head lights, tails, 3rd brake light and small deflectors on rear bumper.

    I removed the Sport and Ecoboost badges in the rear and the E X P L O R E R letters from the hood.

    Picked up a White 16 Sport 2 days ago

    Next up is tinting the front then black ford emblems and a 2nd row console.
