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.

No Mounty no more.
I'm a proud new owner of a Warn xd9000i that was used twice.

How long was on what ever it came off of? It looks like it has been to hell & back.

It's better now. It was really just caked on dirt, but some of the finish is actually bubbling up as you can see on the left side of the first pic.

Don't make no nevermind to me though! :D

And, I took this while I was outside cleaning it. Thought it looked pretty cool.

I made a fairlead license plate bracket today. Now I just need to get the winch mounted. It will be done before the Oct. Truck Haven run. :)

Since I put my 12" sub in the Van, I got an 8" sub from toypaseo (thanks again dude...). I got off work early, so I decided to install it today.

Nicely packaged from toypaseo.

About ten minutes with a little saw and channel locks and about twenty minutes with my 4.5" angle grinder with a 36 grit disc, (what I use for the tikis) and it was done.

Happy birthday to me. :D

I'm going to update the first post as well.

I think Tbars was right, you did win the Lotto

- van
- winch
- audio

What else am I missing in that list Tbars?

Winch = traded mt. bike.
audio = $25 speaker.
