FROADER's "Re-registry"

Well as many know, I haven't had my explorer for quite some time. That has all changed since about 1 hour ago. I bought Mark's Explorer from him this morning (Felix on the board) and I'm already loving it.

This is my old one.

This is the 'new' one.

Well, I figured I'd update this since it came back up.

The new look: Took off the brush guard and painted the EB tan to black.

I think the problem is the spring inside not being strong enough. There is no broken teeth or anything like that. It was brand new when Mark put it in so...? It would work 'sometimes', but I wanted a L/S anyway. I still have the EZ in the carrier if you want it.

A new addition.

I got this rear bumper from CG today. :thumbsup:

I had to cut a little of the frame to get it on, but it's on and I love it! :D
I'm going to take more pictures tomorrow.

I need to readjust my headlights (again :) ) so I'm not blinding people.


This is just another pic I took while at RangerX's house today.

That Hi-lift is just asking to be ripped off. :eek:

Yeah, I think it's just the way I put it on there too. It can be moved left or right flipped around. There are just two studs that you stick through the holes of the jack. I don't think Chris ever had any problems with it getting hit either.

Here are some more pictures. I wired up the license plate frame light today. You can't see it or tell but I thought I'd let everyone know. :p:
