Mike's 2000 XLT Registry

My truck is a white 2000 XLT SOHC 4x4 with just under 151,000 miles. I have unfortunately done many things to it that have not been documented, but I will take pictures of them and add them in the next few days/weeks.

My registry, as with all registries will document everything I have done, am doing, and plan to do to my Ex.

I will be somewhat wise and not talk about how little I will modify my ex, because I know I will end up doing exactly that.

On to my CURRENT* plans for the truck (*subject to change):

Purchase-to-date mods/repairs:
1) replaced radiator
2) replaced sagging leaf springs and rusty shackles
3) replaced fuel pump, and fashioned an access panel above the fuel tank for easy future replacement/repair
4) rear shocks (just Monroe's- didn't have much money)
5) replaced leaky front axle seals/ changed fluid in front diff.
6) auxiliary switch panel mounted on center console- still 2 switches unused. Ideas?
7) aftermarket amp and speakers- still need to mount amp under rear seat
8) leds under dash and under rear seats
9) switched to full synthetic and installed amsoil by pass filtration system- http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=382255
10) fm modulator/ iPod charger
11) Fog light mod
12) plugs and wires
13) brown wire mod

1) parking brake system overhaul
2) front shocks

5) front bearings/hubs
6) all 4 tie rods
7) Brake overhaul/ paint calipers
8) U joints
9) lower ball joints
10) sway bar bushings and links (maybe disconnects)
11) fuel filter
12) paint trim/ grill

2) 3" body lift
3) warriors/TT ?
4) Cat-back exhaust
5) Mac intake
6) Trans, oil, water temp and vacuum gauges
7) Henson tune
8) electric fan

P.S. I love my truck. I want to keep it forever, and I will. I've come to understand the obsession- its a disease. This forum is contagious.
