No clear corners for me:(

Taking the roof rack off is simple. There are six caps that need to be popped off(3 on each side) and remove the screws(12 total), DONE!!! It really is easy, shouldn't take more than 10 minutes taking your time. I put the screws back in and used black touch-up paint to blend them in better and seal them. Some people like to use silicone or something on the threads to help seal them better, but I haven't had any problems since I've had mine off.
 






LIMITED !!!!

also paint the grille !! lol

Just put new tires on last week!!! Shocks are leaking so that mean new shocks and lowering springs:D Waiting on a fella to decide when he wants to give up his GF springs, otherwise I may bite the bullet and buy new ones. Rear end is a whiner and I'm looking into either a replacement or getting it rebuilt.

The main thing is paying this bad boy off so that I can really save for the bigger mods.(Think TF heads, CAI, etc:D)

Also kind of off topic, I am looking to buy a road bike because I am doing an event called RAGBRAI. I have done it twice and it's something else! Gotta get myself in shape because 500+ miles in a week with a pole up your ass isn't easy. But summers here, I'm working full-time again and looking forward to getting the Ex were it needs to be!

Edit- For those that were looking forward to a burnout vid that I promised, the Ex failed to deliver:( I do have one I made last year and it spun easy, but last week it didn't want to spin worth a crap. Watered the tires and it started to go, but a car showed up and I chickened out.
 






the X didnt deliver ????

was it because of the trans, or because you were a chicken lol ! ???
 






failed? Did the even turn? Line lock anyone?

Just didn't want to spin:( I do have a vid from last year, but it was windy and you can't really see the smoke. Now I feel like a loser and need to try again!!! I just need some old stockers to light up;)

Yeah, but it was acting like a 4 cylinder:(

How are the lowering springs working for you? You have new shocks correct? Planning on doing the same setup soon so that I can post new pictures.

I normally don't like aftermarket tail lights on an Explorer, but damn those look good! What type are there & where did you get them? Nice Ex :thumbsup:

nice tails. I believe you got exactly same one as mine. good choice :)

The LED lights in the tails really stands out in the night. I like my taillights better in the night time than day time.

I am not really fond of euro tails, but this one is on the par and like I said the LEDs are really nice so that is what made me stick with those tails.
