Searching for terms can sometimes be a bit of a game in that members sometimes use various terms for the same thing. Don't give up. ;)

My 2017 Explorer. Special thanks to @jonnoriega for his posts and upgrades. I used a lot of your posts as inspiration for my own upgrade (i.e. Velgen wheels and H&R springs). Next upgrades are tint for driver and passenger windows and black ford nameplates front and rear.

Check the "Join Elite Explorers" tab at the top of the page. I think you have to have an Elite membership for that if I read it correctly.

Peter
Ah, ok, makes sense. Thanks.

How many times have you redone the powder coat and vinyl wrap? I've lost count. :crazy::laugh:

Nice vehicle but from looking at the last picture I would guess the front side tint is too dark and the windshield tint goes too low. Did you check the tint laws in your state before applying it? I think the pinstripe is a nice touch.:thumbsup:

Could be. No issues with it where I live. Never have a problem unless you drive like an a$$ here.

Windows look a bit darker when you look at them from certain angles.

Thought I would post and update. I finally had a moment and installed the Hood Letters on my Limited. I'm pretty pleased with how it came out. Here's a before and after picture:

I spent the last couple of weeks washing, clay barring, water spot removing, sealing, and waxing my 2015 Explorer Sport. It has 98k miles on the clock. At the same time I swapped out the Ford emblems for a Magnetic/gloss black emblem in the front and a matte black/gloss black emblem in the rear. I also debadged the rest of the liftgate for now.








I have both a gloss black and matte black Sport emblem. I'm looking for a black Ecoboost 4WD emblem about the size of the OEM emblem but I haven't found anything yet. If I find something, I'll use whatever Sport badge matches as they both go with the Ford emblem.
