Well got my Xplorer in Aug of '02 and first started out in the off-roading scene...had some good times. Here she was with a 3" suspension lift, TT/shackles, brushguard and some 31x11.5 Mickey Thompson Baja Claws on some 15x8 Black rockcrawlers.

After a few months of this, I then changed over to "Street" around Fall of '03. To which she's still a work progress, but I hope to be done someday. :D
Thanks for checkin my "Xploda" out!​

OUCH! nasty crash. What happened? I remember you looking for a new grille so I knew something was up.

She looks as good as new, if not better. Once again you have one of the sweetest Explorers on the site.

Sooo glad you are OK
I've always admired your truck, and this was a big suprise.
Glad it came out good.

:) Looks ALOT like what I would want to do to mine. Just wondering, how much did it cost you to get the truck monotoned and also where did you get that grille? I know its a Street Scenes grille but I can't find where to get it at.

This is what mine looks like, very similiar to yours awhile back :D

Thanks!

As for the monotone paint, I got a hook up at the Ford dealer for like $300. The grilles I got from Kent @ www.flikkustoms.com.

What all u planning to do?

Thanks for the link. When you say they hooked you up does that mean its going to cost me alot more? hahaha I have a friend getting his Durango painted, depending on the quality I am going to go get a quote from them.

Well I need to take care of the typical stuff that needs replacing but as for mods and stuff I want to put in the X-Spec suspension, monotone the paint, get the same wheels as yours except silver in color, lund windjammer wing, some type of grille(but the mounty conversion is appealing to me at the moment), tinting, 01 guages and a system. Thats all in kind of a random order but system, monotone paint and windjammer wing will be the first things done.

The website you just linked is down apparently. Awhile back I was going to join sXc but I noticed there wasn't anyone from central Florida in there and I wasn't able to make meets up north.

In reality thinking back to what I said above, my first real mod is to become Elite. This website definitely deserves my 30 dollars or whatever.

Edit: well... the link seems to be working now :thumbsup:

Really nice.
Do you drive it every day? If so, you are to be commended.
I like the blue accent lights. not too much, just a hue for background. Very nice.
I wish some of your influence would rub off onto my wife
