We saw this in Attica about a year ago. I dont think this guy is on the board and we couldn't find him so this is all there is to go by but ya'll can appreciate the custom work

Yeah, that's kinda what I think too. It doesn't exactly look like the most "natural" convertible ;) But I'd have to see it in person to actually tell how it really looks... That's why I was wondering if he saw it with the top on, I was wondering how that looks, too

it might be kinda cool if he made a custom hardtop for it out of the part he cut off, but thats prolly a crap load of work :p

Cool idea!

Don't like the unicolor look though. It needs fender flares of some kind.

yeah, if everything is painted to match it will look more like a limited, which is a better looking truck. Limiteds rock!

Hey Dan,

I remember that, all I got to say is....EH. It's alright. Hey the year before the Superlift event I went with the gang to Attica and in NOIEC fashion we got a little lost. While driving around the boonies for awhile, I could have sworn I say that Explorer at a fair and no one believed me. It was the exact same one. I knew I wasn't crazy and I wasn't drunk at the time!

Hey I am actually looking for information on how to do this to my 94 explorer xlt.

Before anyone asks themselves dear god why, this is going to be for hunting only. Not a daily driver, not concerned about asthetics. It will be used to hunt the national forests of California where tree stands aren't a feasible option.

this thread is old enough to be in High school.

While we are bumping it with useless posts....
