Yeah you're prob right haha.

I'm going a write up on how to put an Aussie locker into the 2002-2005 Explorer rear axles (requires some modification) here soon so keep your eyes open for that. Only one other guy I know of on this forum is running it and he loves it so I am looking forward to putting it in.

Yeah been seeing the Aussie locker pics/talk running around the forum. Can't wait to see your write up.

Forester; 08 ST sold :(

Ok, I had to google that (I don't know hardly anything about GA), but we could maybe try to meet mid-way somewhere if there was a good spot. I might be going to Gulches around April 2nd with some Jeep people, I dunno though, my schedule changes on the fly and such.
Here's a link. But Gulches would be a pretty big drive for you, and I think they want to meet there at 7am.

Outstanding! I really like the gauges. You only changed the faceplate? Are the needles difficult to see in the daytime?

yes, i only changed the white backing. i took apart my gauges and the mounty gauges, peeled off the white mounty faceplate (it was glued to the gauge cluster) then peeled off my black ex faceplate (glued also) and swapped them. i tryed swapping the needles too but they didnt fit. the white needles are surprisingly easy to see in sunlight

Had some more fun in the mud the other day. Didn't get stuck this time! and thought I'd throw in a pic to remember the long lost snow

I saw this today and it made me smile when I saw it. I had to pull over to take a picture. :)

The driver was actually speeding a little bit, and accelerated fast from the intersection in the photo. It had the original factory 1.5" trailer hitch with a full size hitch bolted directly below that was in use. So it did not have the towing package.

The lights are the KC slimlites part # 124. I love the stance of your truck with the spacers, hows the ride now? Is it very different? I would think it would be quite a bit stiffer. I'm thinking about the BTF's but I'm worried about the ball joints and struts, how do they look? whats the angles like?.....It does look bloody good though.
