I am ready to start my eddie project...'94

I think the one vehicle does that THE MOST, are Prius owners.

Hands down the most 'Look, I drive one too' vehicle owners..

I just wish they would realize that they are actually WORSE for the environment than say a Ford Explorer, or F-150

If I had to drive a Prius I would hang out with other Prius owners just for the added protection :p:

Ever watch Jeff Dunham? :D

Your explorer looks nice JGarrison. Can't wait to lift mine but I think I may buy another one soon. I was looking at one here on the forums for $600 and there is one just like it here in town for $1,000. Same as mine just green. If I buy it I would let my brother drive it, That's the plan because he cannot afford to buy it. But... He has a job and I don't *facepalm*

how are they worse for the environment?

The multiple batteries that they use for the electric engine get used up over time and wind up in a landfill somewhere.
 






Not only that but the prius gas millage is a joke. A common euro diesel car gets twice the millage. Even twin turbo v8 diesels get 49mpg.
 






Nice Explorer JGarrison. I am now on my 2nd explorer, and the first one had a 2" suspension and a 3" body lift. The 94 xlt I have now has a 4" kit on it and i don't regret going all suspension lift underneath it.
 












Man your X is looking pretty boss. I cant wait to get started on mine also. First i gotta do a complete 2wd-4wd conversion. Yea i know :crazy: I hate cars with sentimental value...you always feel guilty when getting rid of them, thats why im just doing the conversion....
 






{off topic}

The way the Nickel is mined is VERY dirty. And even worse yet, the manufacturing of theNiMh batteries is even more dirty. It creates a lot of waste, and environmental damaging byproducts in the process.

ONCE they are made, they are okay....but if I REALLY cared about the environment enough to buy a new car that was 'environmentally friendly' I would buy a VW TDI and get 55+mpg...and look cool doing it...

Yea they gave you the yellowy tan color when you needed the more greyish tan color.
 






From what I have seen there are 4 colors in the 1st gens. Red (it looks good with black :D). blue, tan, and gray. The later 1st gens (93-94), I believe, only used gray and tan. Our tan is darker than later models, but lighter than the Prairie tan, so sort of middlin' tan.
 






I think there were a few grey's , a light and a dark.
 






Funny, I have been through the first gens in the JY and never cam across two different shades of gray. :scratch:
 






At first I thought you were right

But now that I think about it your not , there IS two shades of grey I know it. One is the regular light grey that we normally see , and the other is a very dark grey. I remember seeing it , it was a dark grey interior with leather and wood and it looked great.

And there were two shades of blue too , a dark grey blue , and a very ugly navy blue, lol.
