I suppose the question is...is your Sport an auto? :D

Unfortunately :( Ahh,I shouldn't gripe, my trans has been fantastic thus far in life. Glad I added the extra cooler way back when, never had any serious problems with it. I toyed with the idea of a T-5 when I do the swap this year, but I don't like the idea of missing a shift at the track... plus it'd be a total PITA to reflash the computer :p

I wonder if Zodiac signs apply to trucks too?

aww.. you love your truck as much as i love mine. great looking truck btw. as far as the stripes go, i think farther apart but the same width. but i do like the stripes, i've never seen an explorer(besides on this website) with stripes, so it definitely makes your truck more original. Then again, i havent seen a lifted explorer around me besides mine, but i know they exist not too far from me.

Thanks for the compliment, your X is pretty nice looking too! -->has a soft spot for lifted 98's :D<-- I keep trying to get more Explorer owners to join the Stripey club but so far no dice.

I think jack found himself a new girlfriend...seems like everytime I walk outside they're parked next to each other. Could you imagine if he got her knocked up?!

they make a cute lil couple. hopefully blackjack isn't too hurt when that pretty little thing leaves him for a new owner.

and as to the question "what if he knocked her up?" i think the answer would be similar to a porsche cayenne.

Micah, his name's Randy, you @$$. Tewey's twice my age lol. And I haven't put the back seats of any of my Explorers to the test. Yet. Now customer's Super Duties.... that's a different story ;) :p

LMAO!!!! :D

Gryz, only one I have of my smurf lights is the same pic as my avatar.. I can take one of the lights up close if you want. They're just Sport Truck dual fog/driving lights- I think they're about $50 at any Pep boys or Autozone.


I can't seem to find the one picture I have somewhere on this board of the LED sidemarkers lit up, sorry!

Reckon I should post in here when I do major things to Blackjack, huh?

About 4 weeks ago, on the same weekend we torched off the IFS off of Jack's much larger brother, Morgan, he apparently decided he wanted some attention too and promptly chewed up one of his CV's. Like I needed an excuse to yank out the damn front 4x4 and finally get rid of the bumpsteer that comes with being lowered :D

Except for getting yet another fubar remanufactured PS rack (I got a Ford one this time!! AND IT'S STILL NOT REMAN'D RIGHT!! Argh!) the ride is noticably softer in the front and much much much much much much much much much much much much much much better when hitting bumps, dips and potholes. The only thing left of the factory 4wd is the transfer case (to remove it would require a different driveshaft and tail housing... I can't justify it with the upcoming v8 swap) and the lower A-arms. Every 2wd piece including the rotors are brand new Ford schtuff. Have I mentioned how much nicer the handling is??? :D

Unfortunately, I had to get 1.25" spacers for the Bullitt rims to fit over the large 2wd spindles because they have this stupid lip a quarter of the way up the center of the wheel and I'm too busy to have it machined out. The front wheel track is huuuuuge now, lol.

Future body mods (after the bigass hole where half my tail light used to be gets fixed :fire: ) include smoked headlights, shaving the rear wiper and relocating the push lock near the liftgate handle, cutting saleen style vents into the front fenders where the LED sidemarkers currently reside, shaving the antenna, filling in the cowl (except for the part that moves air into the cabin, don't worry), an EE airdam, roll pan, and a custom made mustang/explorer hood. I'm going to be busy for the next couple of months :D :D :D

And so begins Phase II of Blackjack's life...




Those are out of a wrecked '99 that Rookie found for me on Craigslist two weeks ago (thanks, Mike! :)) Granted, 99's have return-less fuel systems but that's least on my list of things to do right now. I originally wanted to get a DSS crate 347, but all of Blackjack's mod money got spent on making myself a capable crawler (Thanks a LOT, Morgan! :p: ) so I have to start with this. Eventually it will be a 331, though... it'll just take me a year to get it that way. But when I do, WATCH OUT! :D :bounce:
