Go for a street look or keep the off-road look?

You live in the offroad Mecca of the US. Offroad all the way... See ya in Moab:D

Where are you going to drive it? Sure the bull-bar gives it an "off-road" look, but it's really pretty worthless off-road.

With those mountains in the background, I'd go not with an off-road "look", but actual functional off-road setup.


Well of course if I make it a street look I will make it a power house. If I go for off road I still will put some power into it, but I will do a lift and a few other things. Especially get a set of tow hooks on there. So either way with looks I will make it functional that way.
 






Id say off road look but i'm biased like that:D
 






nate, offroad man. lol
 






Off Road look all the way Nate!
 












ExplorerImports;
I got the grilles off of Ebay motors. It was the cheapest ones on there; I eventually got tired of the chrome color when everything was blacked out and painted it black. PM me if you want links to the company I bought em from.
 






I'd say do what Tylers02 is doing, a hybrid:D He has a street type look and all, runnng 18's(I think) with Nitto all-terrians. He can corner better than stock, yet still go off-road should he needs to.
 






Maybe its because I'm a poor man but I wouldnt wanna beat on a pretty truck like that, than again I'm a first gen guy so i would say with the cost for the mods on a newer explorer you could get close to the cost of buying a first gen toy and modding it while keeping this one as a sick street truck
 






As you all may know I am redoing my explorer and who knows....could it be a different one? ;) EDIT: or better yet could it even be an explorer, or is it this tan one...
 






hmm...... now its just a complete mystery!! could it be your 2nd gen ex come back to life? i cant wait to see what it is!

I said I was changing the look, so could that mean I'm going for a stock look....Maybe I'm going for a lift or lowering kit. Hmm.... ;)
 






:popcorn::popcorn: time to sit back and watch this unfold! :D
 






Registry will have updates.
