Nice mod man... did you cut the bezels out so the mesh would show? What did you use to cut it.. what did you use for mesh?

Thumbs up:thumbsup:

When you look for tail light guards, you can get the 06-10 ones (like I did), because they fit. They were cheaper than the 02-05 ones.


really? cool! how much were they? where did you get em? and also question what size tires do you have? and do you have a lift?
sorry for all the questions!

Yeh mate i cut the plastic stuff out and stuck the mesh in behind. I used a sll hacksaw blade to cut the plastic as close as i could to the edges, then used a miniature file set (like a hobby set with straight, curved, round etc..) to smooth it right back. And of course painted em gloss black while i was at it. oh and the mesh i used is just the stuff u buy from an auto store , its jus generic mesh that gets used alot in ricers for their bodykits and such.
 






They were $50.00 with free shipping. The 02-05's were $50.00 + $15.00 Shipping. When you install em; they just bolt right on. No other stuff needed. Funny thing; the instructions have the 05 tail lights :D Anyways I got em on ebaymotors:

Here's how they look (incase you didn't see em posted further up on the page)

As for tires and lift....
I have 245/70/16's and no lift. I think the largest you can go with no lift and no rubbing is 265/75/16.

Nice! thanks man, i really like the tail light guards and being in oklahoma you never know when hail will come and destroy your car :O totalled my moms car. i also wanna do an intake but the stupid intake is connected to the maf, i did find the intake mod by caldwell though so i might do that

Yeah, I also have an intake on my explorer. You can run the "stage 2" which is the stock airbox with 3" tubing, or you could try my route...a cheap $30 intake with another $30-40.00 for the MAF sensor adapter. My MAF wires were exposed in this pic, but I've re-done the tape.

i really like the way you did yours, what all did you have to get before you could put it on?
and the 3" tubing would just need connectors to properly connect to the airbox?

This is caldwell's set-up. No messing with the MAF sensor

My set-up involves
Spectre MAF sensor adapter
And an intake that's not available anymore. You could do caldwell's set-up and use the adapter that's provided above and do an open cone filter.

Here's the Stage 2 intake write up.
