it would still look good even with the all black in my opinion :)
 






and this is random so ill post it in my own thread.....anybody have an extra cap that goes over the lugnuts on my stock 96' wheels ? :(
 






I noticed you needed one, did you not get it all the way on or have you taken it to a shop lately? If you have blame them and make them get you a new one.
 






no it hasnt been worked on since its been missing...i see so many explorers missing them it makes me wonder if somebody came and popped it off or something...i cant lie and say i havent thought about poppin one off somebody elses crappy ex :nono: lol
 












Looks nice, those 33's don't even look all that big!

just have to make sure, the 'gap guards' are the black pieces between the frame body in the wheel well? not sure but that's what i'm thinking.

yesir cover up the gap between the frame and the body
 






Hey grill looks great and i want to do this to my explorer as well... but i was wondering how do you open the hood now that you cant stick your hand in there to unlock the hood?

the kit i bought came with a latch extender. It connects to the stock latch and hangs down further. You just have to use a screw driver or somethin skinny to hit the latch in between the slots. Its easy.
 






You could also weld an extender on it, so you can hit it from between the grill and hood.
