2016, Explorer XLT
I've been looking for a newish car and finally picked up a 2016 Explorer XLT. In the past I owned an Acura Integra, Chevy Astro Cargo, and Toyota 4Runner.

So far I've blacked out the wheels with custom wrap, replaced all of the external lighting with LEDs, added carbon fiber "explorer" letters to the hood, and tweaked some settings with Forscan. Also picked up some LED fogs that are white on first switch, and then yellow if you turn them off and back on.

The car is Canadian so my biggest challenge was getting the DRL setting back on the instrument cluster but it worked. Also with the LED turns, I was able to disable the hyper blink.

I couldn't have done it without support from this forum, so I decided to join in hopes that I could help someone else!
