Kris Guilbeaux's 98 Eddie Bauer "Red Bull"

I am finally making a registry for my 98 Eddie Bauer, lovingly known as Red Bull 2. He got his name after Micheal's 94 XLT which was known as Red Bull. I have owned this explorer for many years but only posted this truck as a project because till today I have never even driven this Explorer around the block.

I bought this Explorer from a wrecking yard in plans to do a first gen frame swap on it. I did the swap for the most part then, once I got down to hooking things up it was going to take a lot more then I expected. so I picked up a 98 Explorer frame and swapped the body back to the correct frame.

Ill update the story more as I go along...

Here are Pictures I took today.

You make it sound like he is sending it to a "farm" upstate.

Hmm, that was supposed to say "your work" not "our"

And mike, are you saying that there isnt a special farm where explorers are sent to frolic and play when they get old?! Double sad face :-( :-(

Just a quick update. I have decided it is time to let this rig go. My plans are to finish buttoning up a few things including finishing the 4x4 conversion and sell this Explorer.

He has been a fun project but its time to let him go.

yeah 4x4 CONVERSION courtesy of Kris

Someone is going to get a very nice one of a kind Ex
