So quick update for everybody.. Taking in the Explorer monday morning to the shop to start on the lightbar. Also, hopefully picking up some BTF Spacer in the next few days and installing them if I can find the time this weekend. I'm pretty sure I'm going with 1.75'' front and 1.25'' rear. I'll have picture up soon!

It's all going to be custom made by my local fabricator.

..Who is your local fabricator? Where is his shop? and what kind of lights?..:popcorn:

I'm getting it done by a shop called Sixgun Offroad, I'm planning on putting four Hella 500ff's on it, or possibly Hella 700ff's. Pictures soon!

Little update.. Sorry for no pictures lately, the ex has been getting repaired. She was leaking coolant from the Intake manifold gasket, which has to be replaced. And also the Intake manifold itself had a crack in it, which is also being replaced. Big $ down the drain on this repair, more to come.
