Welcome to the Forum.:wave:
How are you attempting to load your pictures? The easiest way is to take out a $20 Elite membership and you can use the "Upload a File" options available with eavh post. You will be able to post directly from your device. This will also save them to our servers. The other option is to use a 3rd party posting site like Photobucket but those pictures have a habit of disappearing after a period of time.
Also, please complete your profile by adding the trim level of the Explorer to it. It will then show in the margin every time you post. That can at times be very helpful info.

Yes. It's about a nickel a day. I think I spent more on breakfast today than what it costs to be a Elite Explorer in this forums :p

Looking good. How did you find the process of removing the front grill? I've only found one post that covered removing just the center grill piece without doing the whole front fascia/bumper. That described removing the screws across the top, and then reaching in to get to four somewhat trickier nuts from behind the grill. Was that your experience or did you find a better / easier way?

I pulled the front bumper cover off its not bad took about 15 mins or so to pull the bumper cover hardest part was taking the grill off without breaking any of the tabs. There is screws across the top, bottom, and
one in each fender well under the wheel well trim

Thank you for taking out a membership that also helps to support the Forum. Once a year during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday time frame Rick will offer a 2 for 1 membership deal so you can get 2 years for that price.:D

Which Niche wheels are those? The Misano? And what tire size did you go with?

Looks good!

Have you had polished lips on a vehicle before? I had them on my Infiniti which I drove everyday and I promised myself I will never do it again. Anytime they get wet I would have to wipe them down or they would look like crap. If it was raining and the rain pooled up on the lip it would leave water marks which had to be polished out. After a couple years they started to pit and I had to spend hours sanding and re-polishing them.

I would recommend getting a clear coat put on the lip to protect them, or avoid bad weather with them!

Just some friendly advice!

Sorry, forgot to ask if those are 22x9s? Do you know the offsets? I like how the tires fit; not too thin.
