Mountaineergreen's 2001 Mountaineer MX4 February 2009 Feature Truck

For February 2009 I am selecting Evan's awesome Mountaineer. He is currently not able to access the internet because of the bad ice storm that just hit about a week ago.

Evans Mountaineer is getting this monthly award not only for his work and craftsmanship but because he has several helpful "How To" threads.

Some of his "How To" threads are:
Lower Ball Joint Replacement
Upper Control Arm / Ball Joint Replacement
Inner Tie Rod Removal and Replacement
How To: Leaf Spring Removal / Installation / Swap

He also has a build work log. PS check out the superlift:
Mountainnergreen's Mounty Buildup Worklog

He has does some great work on his truck and on this forum.

Here's to you Evan! :wavey:

Congrats Mountaineergreen. I've always admired your Mounty. It's got all the right mods.
Congratulations! Maybe he could tell us more about this when he sees this thread:
Ford & other manufacturers should make this OEM instead of all of the other stuff like multiple cup holders.
BrooklynBay, since it's going to be a little while until he is able to reply I just thought that I would let you know that he has a write up on how he did that here.

Wow! Thanks Burns!

I just tonight got internet back at my house- I've had to sneak around and check this a work. :D Couldn't post very well like that.

I don't know what to say, It's an honor to be selected for this.

I've been sneaking a peak and reading PM's, but not posting from work for the last week or so. It's all a blur now, but I believe I was unable to even log on for over 2 weeks.
