White might have looked much better , although I just noticed the ski rack overkill as well lol.

well. i gotta agree with deamon3. im not feeling it. it doesnt "flow" with the rest of the truck. maybe if you painted the front and rear bumpers black to match it would look more "complete" i think white would be a cleaner look

It's why they really didn't make any half black half white explorers.

I did the plastic trim on my 96 truck not too long ago with the same stuff and turned out great.

I think it looks great. My truck is similar; its half black half red. I think half black/half some other color on the 4 doors would've been a great factory option, like the first gen sports had.

as far as painting the trim goes it will work well if you use the right paint. mine has been painted for two years but it needs retouching every 6 months or so.

i hate that damn gray plastic

i used krylon fusion paint thats made for plastic and then high quality krylon paint for metal for the rear bumper.

ive put this pic up on here before but its on of the few i have
