    I really like the carbon fiber wrap on the window trim and the back corner pillars. Might look into doing this eventually.

    Road Trip...I'll bring the beer! I'm going to try and find some time to play around in the spring once it warms back up.

    Haha I've driven almost that far once in my life and I promised myself never again. They make planes for a reason.

    How did you cut out for the key pad?
    Another thought. If you precut these I think explorer owners would buy them from you. I would. I can't fins any precut online.

    The doors were precut I got off eBay. It was like 30$shipped but the rear corners and the vinyl on the side of the explorer I did, and the explorer bar in the rear.

    Ordered the unleashed tuning from Torrie. Can't wait for it to get here.

    Trying to decide what cai to get. Just want more noise, know it's not really going to pick up any power. Wish I could find one used.

    I'm in the Jacksonville, FL area. I'd certainly be interested though.

    Loaded the Unleashed tune today. Nice improvement. Feels pretty gnarly with traction control off.

    Continuation from previous post, today the bull bar went on. And wired in these lights to the second switch posted above.

    I have a relocation bracket on order. It normally wouldn’t be a problem but I put the lights on. Without the lights the plate is visible. Probably not legal but Texas is about to go to rear plate only soon. So I don’t know that the cops care much. Still getting the bracket and mounting on front.
