MillerTimeX17's 2005 XLT Registry

Well I got bored and figured this would be a great time to finally build my registry. I've had this Explorer since mid-2008 and have since been building it up slowly.

Here she is stock-

Installing the body lift out in the garage-

After the body lift install-

Body lift with 265/75/16 Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs-

Next step was fixing the exhaust. Went with a Flowmaster 50 SUV series-

Now onto the interior:

I took out the old flip out dvd player and went with an alpine cda-9886, very nice unit by the way. Also, I have my ipod hooked up to it, xm radio, and bluetooth. Sorry this pic is sideways but you can see the headunit, xm, and also my scanguage II-

Here is a closeup of the XM and scanguage II. I fiberglassed it myself-

They are both green to match the stock lights-

I also have an alpine mrp-series 500watt rms amp paired with a 12" alpine type r subwoofer (sorry this shot was really for the LED's but you can see the subwoofer too)-

Speaking of the LED's-

Couldn't just upgrade the interior without doing the headlights and fogs-

And almost forgot the Cobra 19 install (the wires are all cleaned up now) along with the external speaker that I fiberglassed a housing for-

Ooops almost forgot the power inverter too lol (you can also see the ipod too)-

And that about all I got for now except for some a few other general pics-

So got some goods in today:
-12sq ft of dynamat
-2 pairs of Alpine 6.5" Type R Components
-Alpine KTP-455 powerpack

PA200002.jpg


The powerpack is connected inline between the headunit and oem harness. The components will now have 45w rms each.

This where things got really scary for me. Had to drill a hole for the tweeters!!

Completed back doors-

Sorry no installed pics of the dynamat or the powerpack. Both made a huge difference though. the dynamat covered the whole hatch door and rear panels.

They've been awesome. They seem to grip very well in the snow and ice. I pulled a guy out of a ditch over by the toyota dealership on I-25 and they didnt spin at all. Its time they see some more snow, mud, and rocks and a little less concrete:thumbsup:
