My new hunter brushguard in BLACK. Do I have the chrome grill its just chrome paint it's plastic isnt it? Hopefully I will get around to painting it black soon. Any decent black spray paint work?

AWESOME!!!!! I love the way the brush guard looks. I can't wait until I get around to purchasing my grille/brush guard. Your X looks great :thumbsup: The stock grille is plastic. Lightly scratch using sand paper, prime, it then paint it flat black. Remove the ford logo and reinstall after painting, it'll look better.

Thanks rondo & ice for the advice. Yea I'm really happy the way the guard came out.
 






i got the lights from 4 wheel parts. they are 5 inch 55 watt procomp lights. they were $20 each.
i went to home depot and got a metal strap the part # is HRS6 and a L bracket part # A44. i drilled 4 hole shown in the pic below

I want some aux lights on my Bull bar as well... thinking about getting some 3000K Yellow Fogs, to off set the 8000K's i have in the low's and factory fog's now...
 






Nice looking X. Great photo too. :thumbsup: The canoe...how do you have that rigged up to sit on that roof rack? Have you ever had the front of the canoe hang over the hood? Thats the way I was thinking of setting my canoe on top. Or is it better the way you have rigged up for it?


Thanks Ice... i use nylon self-locking cargo straps across the outsides of the bulge of the canoe () and it goes now where... off road and all. I got foam canoe carrier blocks that mount to the x bars of the roof rack. i used to tie it down to the tow hooks up front and the hitch o my 95 X but it started scratching my hood... and this way its easier to get off... just sits square inside my roof rack.

:thumbsup:
 






My 98 X sucks carrying a canoe. I will have to try the way you carry your canoe. I'm sure it works better than the rope I am using currently.

Yeah i didnt like the rope technique... plus if i hit a bump the canoe would hit the roof above my windshield [no joy]..

try it...

let me know... maybe i can get you some of the foam mounts i got..
 






Sharp, what size rubber and how much lift you running?
 












Honestly I do not remember

--I have the problem of the bumps in the road the metal ribs of my canoe shifted, one of em kind of fell out, and scratched my 98's back window.
--Where did you buy those foam mounts? And for how much?
 







i know 86explorer hasnt been on in a while but would anybody happen to know where he got the prerunner fenders?

the answer is probably here but i dont wanna run through the 100,000,000 posts in this thread lol
 






they were a custom fiberglass job I think
 






just recieved a phone call, that i recieved some large packages :D

I ordered new replacement black headlight housings, since my grandpop back his truck into my X, and cracked the lense open on the passenger side...

and the other day i had 100$ sitting in my paypal account that i did not know that i had, and so i ordered a bull bar for the X...

hopefully by sunday I should have the bar installed, and lights done as well...

HAHAHAHAHA

he was banned, his poor spelling and lack of common sense didnt help him! LOL


(oh he made those flairs, he has the mold that he bought from the rancho racing explorer iirc)
 






Did 86 get banned?

Why yes, yes he did.

For putting his x-terrains on backwards?

That and, as it turns out, 86 was a "mule" transporting blackmarket female "toys" to NorCal and other undisclosed drop off points.

There's all the info you need, whether its true or not is up to you to decide. Well its true he got banned. Still I wonder what was the point of the stuff he did to his X. It looks like it was a repo'd X.

Hmm...looks like a good sporting goods store. I'll take a look to see if my local store has those and if I can't find them I'll send you a pm.
 






Haha that answered my question about 86 I guess ... I just wish I count get a set of those fenders but I guess damn near everybody did at one point ... I tried looking for the rancho racing explorer and can't find any pics ... Anybody got any handy?
