Looks like some nice trails out your way
 






Where in Canada are you?!
I wanna check out that Explorer Sport. Looks good.
 












Haha I am way out in Calgary!

Damn, come visit me in Toronto. Lol.

There's actually a few people on here from Calgary.
But it's nice to see more Canucks on here. Taking over.. ;)

If I ever go to Calgary, I'll be sure to come and steal your.. I mean see your truck.

Haha alright. Yeah surprisingly theres a huge amount of 4wheelers out here but I don't think I have ever seen another explorer.

Any good trails out there? Maybe I'll make a trip out of it and then we can hit some of them.




Getting ready for the long weekend monday.....

RAISED MY RAD BACK UP... didnt like the way it hung down after the 3"BL.

CANT TOUCH IT NOW!!!
 






Nice! How were you able raise the radiator? I've got a 3"BL and my radiator hangs too low too.
 






I cut the bottom of the fan shroud out so that the fan wouldnt hit it. then i took out the spacers that came with the kit and mounted the rad where it is supposed to be mounted. I had to cut a bit off the top too to make room for the intake tube. little bit of bending the transmission cooler lines and looks good at new. now I just need to make myself a skid plate to protect the fan.
 






I'm from Calgary as well, we try to get out as much as possible.

Awesome. You should let me know when your going out. I'd love to join you guys!
 






That sounds good, we try not to do anything to gnarly. We have a weding this weekend and monster jam next weekend so probably won't be out for a couple weeks. Where do you usually go?
 






Okay thats cool. I got some welding to do with the exhaust anyways, it broke in half on the long weekend haha. usually go out to mclean creek. its close and usually pretty good.
 






We will also be doing lots of winter wheeling at wiper.
 






Finally got around to fixing the exhaust. Picked up a red hot and routed it through the rear panel. Looks and sounds great!

Started going into the water and just kept nose diving, got into hydrolock range and then couldnt get out.

Some snow wheeling sounds good, was thinking about trying to get up Margret Lake this weekend.
 






So.. is your paint color blue or mud brown? :P

And, there aren't really any places to go wheeling in Toronto.
There's a few outside of TO, but I'd probably get stuck since my truck spends 99% of it's life on the street.
 






its blue. i swear... i had it cleaned to fix the rust on the roof, then painted it blue!!!
