    SCT X4 WITH custom tuning

    I was talking to Torrie yesterday and happened to ask him about the guys that have been waiting on SCT... His response: Sounds like progress. Any update from those that were waiting?

    New Aluminum Sport Pedals

    I think it's time to hedge my bets unless LakersCentral makes some serious headway soon (No offense brother, we know it's not you!).

    Front Bumper Removal - How To?

    I have exhausted my ability to use the search function and turned up nada on anything that explains HOW the XSport front clip comes off. I plan on tackling a few different things this weekend, some of which involves removing the front bumper. So I thought I would poll the audience to get...

    Solved! Door latch fix inside!

    As long as you don't disrupt the springs location by pulling it back too far, you're totally fine...piece of cake job. Just be careful. Also, if the part of the latch that the handle clicks into happens to go back to it's natural "door closed" position, I had great luck with a piece of dental...

    Solved! Door latch fix inside!

    OK, so...for anyone else that runs into this issue I thought I would do a little write up. This was on a '14 Sport When removing the door handles; After loosening the set screw (T20 Torx) in the end of the door, you have to pull the handle outwardd (like you're opening the door) and then slide...

    Painting or Plastic Dip Door handles

    Anyone else have this problem? I had one of the spring assemblies come out of its 'home' during re-install. HELP!

    Solved! Door latch fix inside!

    Ok, so I removed the door handles on my 2014 xport to de-chrome them...everything went fine, but while I was messing with them on the side of the truck, the latch assembly and spring shifted and came out of it's "home"...not there's no tension on it, and the door handle can't be re-installed...

    How to: Explorer LED Interior swap + Puddle Lamps DIY

    PASSENGER LIGHTS: Indeed. I'll try to get a couple of pics taken of these new style lights. They're not bad, they provide a fair amount of light...how they work is pretty ingenious really. They provide very focused light to each passenger area which extends outside when the door is open to also...

    HID Install +Pics - Step by Step

    Thanks for the recommendation! I'll keep that in mind. I heard back from Andrew at TRS today. Seems like it might be more my fault for ordering the wrong parts than anything...I was under the impression that I needed the HD relay to prevent the bulb out issues; but Andrew says some of the...

    HID Install +Pics - Step by Step

    Lackluster Morimoto experience yesterday Installed my 55w 5000K HIDs and HD relay from theretrofitsource.com yesterday. I've gotta say, I had a better experience with my DDM kit on my Mazda 6 than I did with their kit yesterday... :( MORIMOTO Pros: The light output is great. Very smooth...

    WTB: Explorer Interceptor LH Headlight Assembly

    I'm looking for a fifth gen Interceptor Headlight Assembly. It doesn't have to be in good shape, I just need a couple parts from inside, like the outer chrome bezel around the headlamp, and the amber lens. Thanks Guys, Jack

    Headlight Baking - Seeking Recommendation

    Hey Guys, I'm looking for a good recommendation on where I might be able to take my headlights to get them baked and split, then re-sealed when I'm done with my project... I've baked them before, but it's a PITA, and I'd rather pay someone to do it. I'm near Grand Rapids, MI...so...

    Explorer Brake Upgrades

    Re: Brake Fluid I've seen some fluid Q's tossed around and thought I would share some of my understanding on brake fluid in case anyone is interested. DOT 3, 4, & 5.1 are all Glycol based, so they will all eat your paint...however, this doesn't expressly mean they are interchangeable. The...

    UPDATE: Factory "Stop Shipment" on all 4wd Explorers!

    OK, so here's the scoop. The green coolant looking fluid under the hood was cleaner / anti-rust agent. No problem there, just sloppy application. As for the "hard to steer" bit...not sure, but it hasn't come back, and I haven't witnessed it, just the girlfriend. So we're on standby on...

    UPDATE: Factory "Stop Shipment" on all 4wd Explorers!

    Thanks Rebecca! I have to bring it back to the dealer tomorrow since I have a CEL on now with a "charging system error" alert. : \ Also, showing a friend the engine today, and found some green, slippery liquid under the hood...not sure what it could be since the coolant is red and it doesn't...

    UPDATE: Factory "Stop Shipment" on all 4wd Explorers!

    Thanks! I'm still working out the kinks on MFT...we'll see once everything is all set up how it goes. As for modding plans; I'm typically more performance mod-centered, but my better half will be driving this more than I will, so I think I'll stay more aesthetic (for now). I ordered the oil...

    UPDATE: Factory "Stop Shipment" on all 4wd Explorers!

    *Huge sigh of relief It's nice to be done with the wait. Now I can finally update my profile! Thanks to Crystal for all of your help. When we showed up this afternoon the Sales Manager walked out and said; "I've got to come shake the hand of the guy that has Ford calling me to see if I knew...

    UPDATE: Factory "Stop Shipment" on all 4wd Explorers!

    Thanks for the word of caution; my was originally marked as "awaiting shipment" at the end of January...about five weeks ago. That's when all of this business first got started with the factory hold and the email I got from the marketing manager. I'm hoping since this is the second to round, it...

    UPDATE: Factory "Stop Shipment" on all 4wd Explorers!

    Got a hold of my dealer today. He says he got an email yesterday afternoon (not sure why the delay) that our XSport has been "released" and is pending "final approval for shipping" whatever that means. Lol No ETA given. ...maybe getting closer? **knock on wood**

    UPDATE: Factory "Stop Shipment" on all 4wd Explorers!

    Don't feel too bad. We ordered at the beginning of December, build was 01/08, originally ready for shipment 02/04, then put on hold. Not only do I still not have it, but there's not even an updated eta...no info...nada. And we're in MI too! (Mini-sub-rant) Tux Black Metallic, 400A, split...

    Anybody made / heard any progress on an OCC set up or PCV mapping? Also, is anyone aware of any EGR mods being done to re-route the exhaust gasses to avoid the intake? Thnx

    Does Ford use different projectors for Explorer Halogen & HID? ...ANSWERED!

    Maybe I am reading into it, or projecting a tone that isn't there. Just seems lime your word choice is very deliberate and it doesn't read very politely. As for my posts being bizarre and your reasoning as to why; I don't understand what that means. Any examples you would care to share to...

    Does Ford use different projectors for Explorer Halogen & HID? ...ANSWERED!

    I completely understand and see your point. You've been here MUCH longer than me and you're far more knowledgeable on the workings of this forum. No question. Again though...with all of the knowledge you have to share, do you really have to be so condescending about it? Seems like a more tactful...

    Does Ford use different projectors for Explorer Halogen & HID? ...ANSWERED!

    Let it go . . . Man, you just won't get off my back, will you?? You might be right, but I know a lot of people have been curious to hear an answer to this, and I wasn't sure they would find it at the end of the lengthy thread it ended up in. Seems like a good idea to me. It's...

    Does Ford use different projectors for Explorer Halogen & HID? ...ANSWERED!

    I can't tell you how many times I've seen / heard this question asked: If you purchase the optional upgrade to HID headlamps on the 5th Gen Limited, does Ford change just the hardware needed to make the switch? Ie. ballasts, wiring, bulbs? OR does Ford install a new HID-Specific projector also...

    2014 Ford Explorer Factory HID vs Halogen housing

    Awesome Crystal, thanks so much for finding the answer to this for us! Just to be clear (you know what a stickler us forum folk are for detail:D), we are talking about the projector itself being different and not just the overall headlamp assembly, correct? Thanks again Crystal for the...

    2014 Ford Explorer Factory HID vs Halogen housing

    Simply put, because it frustrates me that you've made up your mind on a definitive answer enough to tell me I'm wrong, when you say yourself you don't know and can only speculate. ...plus it is kind of entertaining. ;) I do not have the answers. All I have at this point is my reason and my...
