Everything is going to stay 2-tone for now. The front bumper will be one off a 95-98 explorer with an EE airdam. The Grille will be like the Grille they sell from EE for explorers for like 250$. It has just the 1 bar that goes across the middle. I will have that painted white instead of chrome. Im also making the rear splashguards like the ones James T had but just a tad different. I need to do all the painting soon because I can paint everything myself in school where it costs me barely nothing. After his stuff is done say hello to motor mods :)

Cool, can't wait to see it. Have you ever thought of molding an airdam to the mounty bumper? I was thinking about doing that, but I couldn't get the bumper for cheap enough from the salvage yard. :(

Well the thing is the mounty bumper is all 1 peice. Its not 3 like the explorers are. So in that case I would have to cut it all up which im not a fan of doing. As soon as i get a explorer bumper my mounty bumper will be F/S so watch in the F/S forum.

The 99 ex is one peice. I was thinking of using the one for 99-01 ex's on the mounty bumper. That would be way custom. It wouldn't fit easily, so that is why you pull out the fiberglass. You already have an EE airdam from your old Ex so I agree with the route you are going. Much easier.

What is your idea? Is it like my idea? Note: I have no interest in the bumper.

I was slowly switching lanes on I-95 and my steering wheel was crooked when I got the truck. My moms 00' was crooked also right from the factory.

BTW: New pics of custom grill will be up soon ;)

Well took the mounty to the track... It is a local 1/8 track. I ran a 10.6 at 65mph which isn't bad considering all it has is intake and exhaust with 85k miles and with everything in it (stereo, Clothes, ect.). I am starting a collection of "go-fast" goodies slowly. It will have and E-cam, 1.6 rockers and a intake spacer for between the upper and lower intake manifold as soon as I decide to put in some overtime.

Right - I forgot that everytime I goto the track I always strip before my run.....
