millertime why do you only have the truxxx lift in the front?

purely aesthetics. and i'm gonna run this prerunner stance til i buy some new,larger rubber.

MillerTime have you still been tracking your gas mileage? I really like the looks of your rig. :thumbsup:

its still about the same. im getting ready to do the underdrive pulley and efan once it gets a little nicer outside. just in time to throw some 285/75/16's on it:D and i have a buddy who is gonna help me with gearing once we figure out which ones i need. pretty sure its a dana 30 reverse

considering your still on the 265's and 5.5'' up front... your X still looks fairly level from the pics, and IMO the tires still look good :thumbsup:

a buddy of mine that is currently shopping for something similar to my new X is in love with yours lol. he wanted me to let you know lol

My 02 Explorer XLT… nothing too special about it & the pictures aren’t all that great either…

Things I’ve done to the exterior:

* Installed a set of OEM 17” chrome rims (originals pretty chipped & oxidized)
* Installed a set of Cooper Discoverer ATR 265-70’s (they replaced a set of 245’s)
* Removed OEM step-bars (starting to rust & never used them anyways)
* Removed OEM roof-rack (never use it & was curious about the look)
* Covered the cracked lift gate with a color matching plastic panel I made
* Added a bug-guard
* Added vent-shades

Things I’ve done that don’t show:

* K&N cold air kit
* Flowmaster 40 series
* Removed all 3 CATs (main one was shot anyways)
* Brown Wire Mod (BWM)
* Alpine head unit (have an iPod to plug in)
* Rockford Fosgate amp
* Memphis 12” sub (1 in a custom box… running OEM door speakers with most of their bass turned off)

And here she is:

Figured I would update some pics of my ride, but showing what I actually do with it:D If you can't guess from the pictures, I am currently building a 6' fence in my backyard to keep my boxer in and hide the neighbors. First picture is the post hole digger I rented(easy to use and worth the $100 for 4 hrs!!!) Second picture is from Lowe's when I loaded 21 80lbs bags of concrete in the back(Yes, 1680lbs of concrete in the back!!! Notice the rear is sitting low;)) and the third is about 200 6' pickets in the back that I unloaded about 20 minutes ago. Excuse the quality, it's from my phone and night pictures suck.

if you painted your grilles black they would make the front end look pretty good !
