well c'mon man let's go!:p:

Well anyways was quite happy this weekend since the New Radius Arms and Springs worked great.

Nice not stuffing the Tires into the Fenders all the time :thumbsup:

But still need more damping control (shocks) in the front. Front is still way to bouncy over stuff like whoops.

also need to start working on the beams. Can still hear the Axle rubbing on the pass. side but not as badly as before bit still there. and now need to get longer brake lines in it also.

other than that this ol girl just soldiers along :salute:

Fade to Black

since i have been finally got a chance today to work on the X. Got a new Alternator for it big difference from the old one. Now i don't have to watch the pulsing headlights at night anymore :D

and on my recent trip to the JY i found a mint Condition Black grille and headlight trims from a '93 sport so i decided to change up the look of the Explorer just a bit ;)

I got popped for the same thing by a chp just west of Bakersfield on I-5. As he was lecturing me on the hazards of lifted trucks and no mud flaps, I must have seen 5 other trucks, WAY higher than mine, with no flaps. I just kept my mouth shut.

Yeah i got the same thing from the CHP that popped me too. So yeah i kept my mouth shut. (have a cracked windshield also he did not noticed). But i find it interesting that when you question the officer about specifications for the mud flaps (size, placement need em on one axle or both etc) they cannot tell you what is legal and what's not legal :scratch:

but on the humorous side tho Me and Sis (she was driving) took the X yesterday over to the local CHP office to get the ticket signed off.

Walked in the office told the officer what i needed. he says "you got em on"
i replied "yes sir" grabs the ticket and signs it off. hands it back to me "have a nice day ".

Never went outside and looked at the truck :rolleyes: aw well at least it over with now.

You should have just taped some cardboard to the bumper, and don't forget to draw the lady on them;)

Cough Cough time to blow the dust off this thread. :D

did not realize it has been over a year since i updated this thread

but anyways not much happening here since i left Cali last September and Moved to Kansas

no insurance on it and Tags expired it has been just sitting at my sister's house just chillin'

but recently the Mgnt Co that my sister has to deal with just put up new signs threatening to remove all "non running, non registered" vehicles from the property

so that left me in a lurch as to where i could store the '91...........

Lucky Me sister number 2 comes to the rescue at the last minute and will let me store this over at her place swince she has assigned parking at her place so no more worries for now.......whew


now to just get the cash together and get the '91 transported to Kansas........

the Saga continues....................................

I was left with a helluva dilemma....How to get the X moved with out buying a 100 dollar battery and the fact that I was in Missouri?
