1993fordexploere's 1993 "X" xlt 4x4

i have been wanting to do this for a while just havent had time so here it is.this X was just used for a family car until i got it.

the first two pictures are bone stock and the other pictures are with 31x11.50 tires and no front bumper cause of the custom bumper coming in for my winch and the warn manual hub conversion. it has no lift. but will soon.:)
lots of mods coming up.

So, are you paying for this stuff or are your parents? I'm not up on the whole, parents paying for everything...thing.
Maybe it's just me, but kids gotta earn their way somehow! Teaches them the value of a dollar. Though, we all know it's nowhere near as much as it used to be!

That's good. I'm not saying they can't help a little, but one of the things I don't like is when you see some kid driving a supped up truck. Lifted to the max and over 10k in mods that they clearly didn't pay for unless they used drug money. When I was in high school, there was a kid driving a lifted H1, with 21's, killer sound system and pimped out interior. No way he bought that thing. H1's are at least 40-50K.
 






yeah thats for sure. actually now that i think about it they helped with the lift i think....:scratch: i work for almost everything i buy and see right now i dont have expenses living with my parents so i can do what i want with the money i get. oh and yeah spoiled people are gonna have a hard life when they get older. especially that spoiled.
 






Yeah, it just messes them up later when they go out on their own.
 






I'm in the same boat man, my Dad bought the explorer for me and i've taken care of it ever since. it's a great feeling though, doing it yourself. gives you a sense of pride, AND you can tell people exactly what you have and what it does.

Yeah, it's no fun to never pay for your own things. It makes you feel better about calling them yours!
 






yeah. and the best part is that im a "do it yourselfer" type person and i love mechanics and right now im going into my 4th year of high school and i have did auto all four years and after i graduate i will have a ASE degree
 






Yeah, it's fun working on cars. I am leaving monday to head off to NTI in Charlotte(UTI) and am really excited about that and when I'm done, I might join the reserves and jump out of planes or be a mechanic for them.!:salute::troops::salute: Plus I would already be promoted before I leave Basic :salute: because I am an Eagle Scout!:thumbsup:

I couldn't really see if you had center caps on your wheels on your latest pics. A good looking (and cheap) center cap is the 2nd Gen caps. Just use the 2nd Gen lug nuts and the caps snap right in. A 3 inch hole saw will cut out the center of the cap to allow your front locks to come through.
