    Pro Comp 9131 HID conversion (tutorial)

    I havent been around in a while because I dont have the Explorer anymore. But I figured some of the offroad guys would be interested in these. I have been building a lifted golf cart and decided I wanted to have some large HID lights on a light bar. I was going to buy the Chinese 7" HIDs you...

    Tired of my black 20's- need opinions on the replacements

    I have grown tired of my current wheels. When I got them 3+ years ago, black wheels weren't very common; but they are way too common now and dont give a "high performance" vibe. I was wanting to replace them with some 18" Saleens or Cobras, but found these while looking on eBay. What do you guys...

    Custom Dewalt 12v Litium Ion adapter....

    I really like having my litttle Dewalt drill around the house, but it seems that every time I go to use it the battery is dead from sitting. Well, to solve the problem, I got a new Ryobi One + 12v kit for Christmas. The drill in the kit works great, but I still want to be able to use my Dewalt...

    Justin's new project- Another Range Rover Classic

    I bought this '94 Range Rover to drive while my Explorer is down for the twin turbo swap. But I just cant leave anything alone. I still have some parts left over from my last Range Rover, so they will slowly be making their way to this one. My first mod was upgrading the crappy sealed beam...

    My house project- now I need ideas... (lots of pictures)

    Well, Here is what I have been up to all summer. I got this house (which is my first house) from my Grandfather. He bought it years ago to make into a rental property, but never got around to it. He did use it for storage for about 5 years though. Before that, it was vacant for about 10 years. I...

    Boring day= new HID flashlight :)

    I was really bored today, so I sat down and created this- most of it while sitting on my living room floor watching The Transporter. I started with a 15 Million candle power "Cyclops" halogen flashlight. I liked the light output, but the battery wouldnt last long because of the 130 watt bulb. So...

    Justin is going twin turbo...

    Well, I just ordered two Borg Warner S200 turbochargers for my Explorer. With the new install, I will be moving everything towards the front- so it will be a mid mount setup. I am also changing my air/air intercooler with an air/water intercooler and adding water injection. I am not adding the...

    FYI: FMS Headers $247 at Summit

    I would have bought these, but I need the EGR version (which I just bought a little while ago). These headers are for GT40 equipped Explorers and are probably cheaper than you will ever find them new anywhere. Note: even though the picture shows the GT40p version, these are for GT40's...

    Tuned the Turbo 5.0 Explorer!!

    I finally got the Ex tuned this weekend; James drove out Saturday and we got to it. Turns out I am about to max out my Lightning MAF, so when I retune in the spring for 12psi I will have to move up to a SCT BA3000 meter. The truck ran great, only ran into a few issues- I blew a coupler off about...

    My turbocharged 2000 5.0 AWD....

    I just wanted to show off my DIY remote build. The truck is an AWD 2000 5.0 Explorer. - I like to think of it as an AWD SUV Mustang:) This truck actually was lifted with tube bumpers, safari rack, and 32" ATs on 20" wheels just a few months ago- it has undergone a big transformation here lately...

    Anyone have the BBK 5.0 intake manifold?

    I was shopping around for performance parts when I came across this. It looks cool if nothing else. What are your thoughts on this? Do you think there would any benefits over the GT40 piece? Here is some info on it: • Adds 18-35 horsepower over the factory manifold • Features unique open...

    Perry's Fab n Fiber 3rd Gen Fiberglass Fenders!!!

    I just heard back from Perry's Fab and Fiber and they are willing to make glass front fenders for 3rd gens. These should allow you run a 33" tire (285/75/16 or 255/85/16) without lift or rubbing. Interested parties would need to start a "group buy". Here is a copy of the latest email...

    Wanted: pictures of 255/85/16 on 2nd gen

    I need to see some pictures of some 255/85/16 tires on a second gen with just TT/Shackles. I know they can fit, I just want to see how stuffed they look. This is a 285/75/16 on my old Explorer, I figure a 255/85 will be about the same.

    Help me find a HU for the Range Rover

    I need help finding a cheap CD player for my Range Rover classic. The problem is that the radio in these almost points straight up--so I want to find something that has a face that will tilt towards me. It also needs to be able to play CDs while at this angle(some wont). So, help me find a...

    My new Range Rover Classic project.

    I finally bought the Range Rover that I have been looking at. It is a 1988 40th Aniversary Edition SWB Range Rover. It has the 3.5 liter v8, which is all aluminum. The engine is a Buick 215ci that has a stronger block. They are know to be leaky, but this RR has been sitting in the same spot for...

It uses a 100w/130w H4 headlight bulb and is supposed to be seen for 6 miles. I guess the only downside is that a...

There were better photo-ops on this trail, but they were too muddy for me to get out of the truck:) I am a Field Engineer for a cell phone comany, so I have to drive to remote places like this. Sorry for the...
