Axial, Nice Work! Wasnt sold on the colors when I first saw your writeup. Have to give it 2 thumbs up now, very different and it works. I like the grill insert, I put a 98+ plastic "honeycomb" insert in my 95. Looks like you have the hood latch thru the grill like mine and had to notch the insert also. I like your insert alot better, where did you find it? Like the 35's!!

The insert was a scrap mesh/holes sheet that I found in the bottom of our scrap barrel. We cut it to size and made the notch, and drilled it to the center grill support

also i see your from ny im from jersey where do you go wheelin at bro?
 






Yea... pinstripe where did you get that brush guard.. I'm looking at getting one.. but I like the ones that are bent with the grill like yours...but I can't find one.
 






My local Advanced Auto is a Westin dealer so I ordered it through them plus I got a discount cause my account through my dealer (I'm a mechanic at a Chrysler Dealership) but be ready, it costs around $600. And ccarnahan, I usually would go through state land w/ a bunch of my buddies, sometimes we would know somewhere to go wheelin in private property but I used to go in western upstate new york in Morrisville, there was a ****load of state land up there that was a ####load of fun, Anyway, i gott get back to work...

Manik offroad also has a very similar brushguard. Although I got mine installed at a Ford dealer when I got the truck new back in 99, a friend of mine was able to obtain a new Manik one directly from and If I remember it correctly, it was about $150 less than Westin.

pinstripe,
x3 that grill guard really looks decent. Havent really liked any of the other guards I have seen very much. What kind of winter shoes are u running?

techboj,
that guard looks decent also, very similar.
 






I have two sets of factory alloy 16" rims. I am running my 265/75/16 Dean Wildcat A/Ts as my summer tires (same as Cooper Discoverer ATRs) and for my snows I have 265/70/16 Firestone Winerforces, they do great and are fairly cheap. I think they are like $90.00 a tire for people off the street but I payed almost nothing because I pay cost through my dealership...

nice sports u guys got
 






Not a fan of red except on the Sports with Grey Moldings! Very nice--I still have a set of those wheels in my basement and I am thinking of adding some 33" winter tires to them for the winter. Beautiful pic in the snow by the way.
 












here's one of the pics i took while at the badlands a couple weekends ago

I used a 4" drop block from the local oreilly auto store with the stock rear shock plates onto top the leaf instead of under. Works very well other than the occasional axle to frame hit. The frame needs to be C Notched, but that isnt on the high priorty list for now. My #3 piston is no longer with us.

Just a quick question for you 18psiexplorer.

What kind of rpm do you turn on the highway at 70? And what rear gears you running? i remember you saying something about 3.73's in your other thread but im not 100% sure if that is correct. Mine has the stock 3.08's in the rear and turns 2200-2300Rpm on the highway at 70.

Yes I do have stock 3.73 with 5 spd trans it turns right at 1800 to 2000
 












You gotta upload your pics to Photobucket, or a simaler hosting site man, we cant check your email LOL
