So far, so good. :thumbsup:
Although since it's summer time I think I need to worry more about the rocks then the water.

It's been awhile, so I thought I'd post some brand new pics.

So what do you think?

So as some may know, I've recently been on a quest to wheel my Explorer every possible weekend for as long as it would let me...:p:...and so far my record stands at 10 runs in 10 weeks...:eek:

1 Big Bear-12/07/07
2 Big Bear-12/08/07
3 Lucerne Valley-12/19/07 (It was a quick run by myself on the way to work, so no pics)
4 Big Bear-1/05/08
5 Cleghorn-1/11/08
6 Truckhaven-1/18-20/08
7 Big Bear-1/25/08
8 Victorville-2/02/08
9 Cleghorn-2/09/08
10 Glamis 2/15-17/08

So after all this I've decided to take a little break and let the Ex rest. While it was a whole lot of fun, the cracked cross member I found the day before Glamis made me realize that I can't just keep beating it into the ground. I love my truck just a little to much. Next up, hopefully some suspension work with the occasional run thrown in...:D

Since the Ex has been so good to me for the last two months, today I decided to give it a little extra attention by painting a lot of the fading trim ultra flat black...

I started running out of daylight, so the pics aren't the best. I'll try and get some better ones tomorrow.
