Have not posted on here in a long time, thought I would throw up some pictures for fun. Got new tires on now, got the BTF spacers sitting in my house waiting to go on the front only, back is high enough, just gonna level it.

i like your rig :thumbsup:

one thing though. seems as if that basket isn't a Thule, but you have a Thule wind deflector? just pointing this out, because the wind deflector on that style (90*) basket, i would imagine, would make it less aerodynamic and make more wind noise. mine is at a 45* angle, and still makes a decent amount of noise (on top of robbing you gas mileage!)


:salute:

Thanks! Though my Basket is a Thule. It's the M.O.A.B with the extension in it.
Edit:
Though the gas mileage thing I really don't care about, not like I don't drive the **** out of the 4.6 in the city and kill my mileage anyway.

Dipped the center caps then gave the car a wash and a once over with a spray wax
 






Been a while so I figured I'd throw up a picture or two of the Explorer doing it's duty. We bought quads this summer to do some riding and I modified my HF trailer to accommodate the second quad. White one is an '04 Raptor 660 and the blue one is an '07 TaoTao ATA-150B.

Love the Raptor! Used to have one myself. One day I'll buy another.

Thought I would throw this before (Bottom) and after (Top) of my Ex, put BTF spacers on the front end only on Tuesday. Wanted to level mine out and kill some of the rubbing, which they did the job perfectly. just did 1.25" in the front. Put me a half inch lower than the back, looks perfect now.

I can only find the truxxx 2.5/1.25 ones.. I wish theu were 2" in the rear. I feel like my fronts higher.

Any other ootions?

I think Brandon with BTF can custom make the spacers to the size that you want. Though you might want to consider doing a body lift on top of a little smaller spacers, a 3 in spacer is gonna put ya way up and stress your components. I put a 1.25" in the front of mine to level it with the back, and it raised it more than the 1.25" total.
