    My truck is completed

    :fire: You got me... I meant 3' x 3' :D Without the roof rack it'd look really clean i guess, wouldn't it look like something is missing? How can I lower the windshield wipers? Where can I get the appropriate antenna? I always wanted to change it, it's so long though it functions well...

    My truck is completed

    You are right!!! I have to wax it :D I'm actually thinking about adding a glass roof... not sunroof, but a panoramic 3" x 3" glass top, but nobody can guarantee no leak, so I'm holding back.

    Cheapest way I found to lower the 99X, will it work?

    did you end up doing it? I'm thinking of either dropping my 99 Sport or tires/wheels combo... if you did, how's the ride quality? and how did you get it done? how much did you spend?

    99 Sport Suspension

    everything is stock (rims and tires)... and I doubt if ANYTHING (even the suspension) has been changed since new... the truck has 210k KM on it, i bought it at 190k. is the multi-leaf a direct bolt-on? any fabrication needed? as for the EE swaybar, where can I get it and how much would it...

    99 Sport Suspension

    It feels like the car is falling apart whenever I drive through a pothole... and feels like there's no suspension at all. And when I'm driving over a speed bump one wheel at a time, the car rocks left and right vigorously... Do i need to replace the SHOCKS only? or the spring leafs as well...

    "The Poor Man Project"

    for the rear (ie Explorer, Sport)? yes, but it was PITA to take them off...
  17. A

    "The Poor Man Project"

    looking good :) you dun have the fender flares tho... i took them off and thought I would just fill the holes... but then it would involve a lot more work, so i just painted the fender flares... I don't like them. but it looks much better now.

    Wheel Spacer size for 99 X Sport?

    thanks for the replies. I guess i'll go with the 1.75" adaptor from H&R or Performance Wheel & Tire.... which is less pricey.

    "The Poor Man Project"

    i have center caps but i took them off.... they dun look good imo...

    "The Poor Man Project"

    NOPE :) it's a DIY by newbie... hehe the surface of the panels are really smooth, and the dupli-color really sticks! so i decided I wouldn't spend the time on using primer. and it's BLACK, maybe i would if it was something else.

    "The Poor Man Project"

    I just wet sanded them to make them smooth... and PAINT ON!!! a few coats of paint, and then wet sand again... then clear coat (only the fender flares), since the truck bed and rocker panel paints don't need the shine.
  22. A

    "The Poor Man Project"

    I'm sure it'll last as long as the truck last... and I used rocker panel paint to paint the step bar (which is made of metal) and truck bed coating for rear bumper. Both looks and feels much better. Rust and scratch resistence...

    "O/D OFF" light blinking while driving on snow?

    I dunno why but the problem is gone! I think it's because of the weather here.... too cold. and icey road. So before I drive on the snow these days, I turned off the Over Drive and the problem will be gone!

    "O/D OFF" light blinking while driving on snow?

    is it normal? cos when I'm driving on slippery/snow covered road for a while, it'd blink until I shut down the car.

    Weird auto tranny behavior on 99 X.

    in the last few days the weather here dropped to -20'c and the tranny is acting funky... when it decided to shift from 2nd to 3rd, it goes into neutral for half second... needle jumps up 1000rpm and the car jerks a lil bit... I dunno if it's related to the weather... your thoughts?
