This spot is 2 miles from my house. I've been going up on this hill forever, but it's been a while since I've had a vehicle that could make it to the top. A lot of people call it hang glider hill. Pretty cool to watch guys take off from the top.

Hit the most challenging trail I've been on yet, the trail to Pancake Rock.

Lot's of 3 wheel action and spanning deep ruts. This little Explorer continues to impress!

Nice ride! I too love the white and clear lens treatment.

How do you like those tires for the wheeling you do?

I've never had any grip issues with these tires, they seem to hold up to everything I throw at them. The only thing I don't like is that as they wear, they loose tread grooves.

Looks good!

I think it still looks quite stock at first glance or two, and thus retains sleeper status. Much more, however, and then you'll be in never-never land! Looksod!

Clean explorer. Never been a fan of the fiberglass fenders and so much for the sleeper look with them. Where are you in San Diego. Pictures look like east county.

You have had better luck with not getting pulled over then I did. I got multiple fix it tickets around San Diego County in my old ranger. My truck was pretty hammered so I looked shady. I am sure I disappointed a few of them when they pulled me over and found out I had registration insurance and a clean record.

Great looking truck! Don't sweat the people hating on your clear front indicators. I've had clear front indicators for about four years now with no police attention yet. I did keep the orange reflectors but they aren't illuminated. The only people I hate on are the ones that smoke their taillights, because sometimes it is way too hard to see their brake lights.

Yeah, I've never had an issue with the clear corner. I definitely would have been busted by now if they were worried.


Some random shots from my last trip

Quick question, How much lift did the JD lift kit give you after the springs settled?
