I had/have no problems with the trucks electrical system, perhaps you confused my post with the OP?

I had a bad LED bulb, problem followed the bulb.

Put in a new pair and all is well.

Got started on some upgrades to my 2003 NBX. First on the list was air. Built a bracket to slip in an ARB twin compressor.

No f150 too wide

Not sure they can be obtained now

I’d have to check close to $375 as I recall

So you have no idea the vehicle your grill was originally made for? Was it a custom fit only for our explorers. I’m comfortable trimming sanding and making it work but I’d find comfort in having an idea. The 04-08 F-150 grill is close as my buddy has one though yes they are larger. No offense but yours isn’t exactly flush and I have a feeling it was originally made for a pickup as I notice the grill protrudes past your headlight alittle bit and one could argue the one you have now is “too wide” but you made it work and it looks damn good.

The GOR has to get cut up to make clearance

Looked on here a bunch of times to see the biggest size tire I could fit on a bone stock 03. Turns out 235/85r16s just fit. No rubbing at full lock or at full tuck. Standard measurement is 31.7x9.4

Probably the last pictures of her I'll take, Trans is finally acting up at 199,000 miles but it's been a great vehicle and still looks pretty good. Btw 265/75 16 Cooper at3's no rubbing with no lift.

Figured it was time to share some shots of my '03 EB from 2018 so far. Many more adventures (and mods) planned!

Not sure if you're still active on here, but worst case maybe I can keep the photos thread alive for another day. These are great shots--your setup looks awesome. I checked out your website/instagram pages to creep on your lift/wheels/tires setup as I'm considering something similar for my explorer. I'm up in Columbia, MO but I frequent a lot of the NW Arkansas/Buffalo River spots I've seen you post about. How's your rig holding up to the overland life? Last time I was driving between Jasper and Ponca, I remember picturing my ex having some crazy timing chain catastrophe and trying to figure out what the hell I'd do on that road if the ol girl just grenaded herself. I think explorers like ours are a pretty good setup for exploring the ozarks. The terrain isn't crazy enough where you need a full on rock crawler to get most places but 4wd and some ground clearance will get you into some cool spots. Would love to pick your brain about some of the good wheeling trails you've hit up around Spfd and NW Arkansas areas.

Those 20" rims look good on a 3rd gen with the wheel well trim.
