98 xplorer sport

i decided to start a registry for my explorer instead of posting pics of it in my ranger registry.


here it is when i bought it, the only thing i changed at this point was tires and wheels. the stock 16's are on my ranger now.

with the flat black wheels the grey molding/bumpers looked out of place. so over the weekend i painted the bumpers,grill,and side molding flat black.

here are a couple pics my wife took while i was prepping it for paint:






and here it is all painted:

i got this idea after seeing pics of specialized7's explorer.

i took the lights off the ranger and put them on the explorer, it was to dark last night to take pics so here is one i took this morning.



i will get beter pics when i wire the lights.
