This thursday I will be installing the Dee Zee running boards and the Visual Garage's Shark Fin Antenna which it was delivered today.

On Friday the dealer is picking up my Explorer and doing the hand painted Pin Stripping and also Installing the Roof Rack Cross Bars.

I also ordered today the Xenon HID Kit in 8000K for the mains (9005/ HB3) and the 8000K (H11) for the Fog lights.

I will be taken better pictures with my camera and post them here once everything is done with the Explorer.


I think this will be it for now unless I can think of something else to add to my lovely Sport.

Best regards to all,

Carlos

Carlos,

She's a beauty! I am interested in some running boards as well. Can you share more about the Dee Zee's? Are they from the dealer? Cost? Would love to see pics after the modifications are made. Also, did you also tint the windshield as well? I am considering doing this and wondering if you did, how dark did you go? Thanks!

Hi rellyrooly,
The Dee Zee's that I will be installing in the sport are the DZ16202 with the mounting brackets DZ16221. They are not from the dealer. I bought them from AutoAnything.com and I paid $326.32 total including shipping and no sales tax. The best price you can find. They are the black ones with the chrome trim. I installed them myself and it only took me an hour to do so. There is absolutely no drilling required.
As far as the window tinting I only had the two front windows done and I used 20% to match the rest of the windows. My front windshield was not tinted

I want to install the same ones in the Sport since the Sport wheels have polished aluminum lines and I feel that it will accent the wheels as well as the car.

I had them installed in my 2012 Ford Explorer Limited. Here are some photos of the same DeeZee running boards in that Explorer,

What can I say, Carlos? Your Explorer is absolutely stunning! :D I'm a big fan of the Charcoal Black/Sienna Interior. Thanks for sharing the pictures! :thumbsup:

Stay warm and enjoy the new ride!

Carlos,

You are wonderful! Thank you so much for all of the info you have shared with me! I really like those Dee Zees as well. Great choice! I also noticed on your previous EX that you had a center console between the buckets. Did you add that after market? Was it a problem for passengers to get to the back seats?

I am considering tinting that front window...there is film that is I think 65% that is legal here in AZ. It gives the car an even more blacked out appearance and it looks really cool. I ordered the tuxedo black exterior so a really blacked out look is what I am going for.

I agree with Crystal; LOVE the black/sienna seats and so glad I ordered them. I haven't even seen them in person yet so seeing your pic really has me excited!!!!

Congrats man. Im a fellow New Yorican here. I want to get the same upgrades you have....front window tints, crossbars, but kinda worried about getting stopped for the tints. How long did the tint job take? Is that percentage you have ok? I really like that blacked out look all over. Whats your experience with this? Can you recommend any places to do the tints and how much? Thanks. You're car is lookin real sharp. Here's is my explorer...looks like we're cousins lol.

Thank Jc! As far as the tint (20%) I have never been stopped by the cops. In fact I have either stopped at many lights next to them or parked next to them in a few places and all they have said to me is " very nice Explorer". I think nowadays law enforcement are concern more about more important issues than window tint unless you are been pull over for reckless driving.
I think most places that install alarms, radios and other stuff for cars do very good window tint. I live in Queens so I have been going to the same store for over 15 years . I trust them and they do good a very good job and even though they have a small shop they have always been very careful with my Explorers and Expeditions. They know that if they even put a tiny scratch on my car they will never hear the end of it!!! Lol . My place is call, USS or Ultima Sound and Security. If you happened to be in Queens give them a call and try them out.
