Billy, that's a good looking ride. The stock Explorer set up is still the best thing going, imo.

looks good but how did you take off the grill to paint it? is it a apin to do b/c i want to do that with mine also.

Thanks mdrut. I want to do more to it (engine wise) b/c it can use some more power and a little better fuel economy. But since my parents don't want me to spend a lot of money on it so I have to listen to tham, they paid for it, ya know?? Hehe.

Brian, it WAS a pain to get it out. But it's easy after you get all the screws out. I followed what the Hayes manual says and it worked out pretty well. The clips are a b***h to take out. My dad helped taking it out. Oh yeah, remember to retain those clips b/c sometimes they might slip out of the grill. I hope this helps.

the seatbelts in the '96 EB are defective...... so is the sway bar bolt..................................ok that was my PSA........ as i hope off the stand

What are you trying to say?? I got the sway bar links fixed.

they were defecteive on mine so i ended up rol,ling it

Oh, I'm sorry. I hope you didn't have any severe injuries. So...what happen now?? Do you have a new one??


I am going to get a new one........ chceck out the pics on whoops thread

Got some new pics...

...of my truck, with clear corners and superwhite fogs and headlights.


Nice truck I almost got green instead of black

I told matt adams, and riffy I was going to, but I dont know, if I do it will be for off-road use only................


clear corners

did you take the running boards off of your explorer and put the mud flaps on? i have a 95 eddie bauer and i want to get running boards because i think they look better than the flaps. the lower half also is this pumice color that i think is rather bland and i want to get something else, what is yours? i've looked everywhere for clear corners but i couldn't find them, especially now with a new body style for explorers. where did you get yours? did you change the bulbs on the corners to hyper-white? b/c if you didn't maybe that is why they still look yellow.

For the Eddie Bauer Explorers in '95-'98, running boards are optional. Since mine doesn't have running boards, it has side skirts instead. In my opinion, if I put running boards in, it looks a lot lower and less rugged. I have the mud flaps/splash guards for front and rear and they make my truck look good!!

The "beige" is different every year. Like you said, the '95's have Pumice. Mine is a '96 and it is Light Saddle. I think from '97 on, it's Medium Pierre Tan.

As for the clear corners, I got it from e-bay. It's about $55 including shipping. The bulbs are superwhite and they look white in person but the picture doesn't show it.

clear corners

hey this is "white30th" under a different name...the other name was my friend's. anyway, i just searched ebay for the clear corners, but I couldn't find any for an explorer...the clear corners for a ranger look like they may fit, is that what you got?
