thanks again. she doesnt look to pretty at the moment. all the snow is melting here right now. you cant even tell what color it is! LOL! as for the exhaust, i am watching for a wreaked 5L explorer. if i find one, i will be doing a motor swap, and when done, it will have duals on it. at the moment, i am making some projector head lights for it as well. couldn't afford the group buy they had.

my view on that is if you want something different than someone else, it will take work. otherwise, you will never stand out. that has been my opinion for a long time. but thanks for the compliment.

That turned out well.

I have to admit, I was a little worried about how this was going to turn out while following the thread, but the end result is awesome.

WOW, that really looks custom, quality, and awesome. I am not a fan of roll pans on our 2nd gens but that just changed. You do fantastic work. Dont worry about liability, I have a Craftsman "mechanix" tool set, Craftsman creeper, Craftsman lift, and a soldering iron. Even if I did have the tools I dont have the skillz... Great writeup, really gives an even better appreciation for what you created. See alot of Chevy's with fiberglass rollpans and the paint doesnt even match the truck most of the time. Nice Job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

thanks again. yes it did take some work, but in the end i am glad i did it. every time i see another explorer rippin around (and we don't have to many modified ones here so evil stands out like a sore thumb) with a stock rear bumper, it just doesnt look right to me!

I think the wiper arm must go too.

Also, I think it'll look way better with nerf bars.

My 2 cents you didn't ask for.

i would like to loose the wiper arm, but i do use it a lot, so it must stay. the nerf bars, that one i am not sure about. i like it with out them, that and the factory ones where rusted up, and looked like hell, so they where removed when i first got it.
