Got the paint Scheme figured out did a test to see what was going to look like it should look pretty good with the olive on top in the black on the bottom

That'll look good! A long time ago a person here, Hank, made "Army Bauer", which was his Explorer painted army green on top, and if I remember right black or gray on bottom. Anyway, the thread is still here, but the pics are not.
Project Army Bauer

Our 1st gens make beast 4x4's, you will surprise people on the trails.
 






I like to truck more and more that I drive it it does amaze me especially with the limited slip Rear end I'd like to have a limited slip in the front and a selective on the back but Hey right now don't have the money when I do I'll try
 






May have encountered a setback today I may have made my little wench Explorer I may have burn it up today I got stuck I in my own yard and unfortunately I found out that there was a short and the switch to go forward and reverse in the and the wiring and it' stuck cranking in until it would not go anymore now all it does is click click click what she's the winch motor for the solenoid burned up today
 






Valve cover job on little green Exploder painted little green exploder got some more work done on my front bumper got some plate to weld in
 












Have a little bit more to do on the paint like the roof and a pinstripe between the two tone Olive still haven't pulled my electric winch apart yet to find out how bad is fried Ray rig my hand crank winch so it'll work better
 


















Thank you for all your likes the truck is coming along slowly
 






What is the grill guard off of? Is it originally made for an Explorer? Those are tough to find these days.
