Good to see you're back in an Explorer! Its a nice truck :)

If you want gas mileage just drive the Porsche:D

LOL. That's the neighbors and I have no idea how they afford it. There is about 10 people that live in that house.

WoW looks even better! Kris does incredible work and what a fine Ex you have!!

Nice. That Ex is so clean. You got yourself a nice ride. Viva la 2nd Gen! :D

A mod and a fix today.

First the mod. I went and added my EF license plate frames that were on both my Dodge and Red Flyer to Red Bull. These frames are kind of getting a lineage with all the vehicles they have been on.

The fix. The passenger side window blew a bushing so I went by AZ and picked up a new set. I was a little stumped about how to get the motor out since I have never worked on a second gen or a front door before. I have done the rears before on the Flyer so I new how to fix the motor, but it still took me a while to find the dimple. Eventually after pulling the speaker I found it. After playing around with getting the motor back in and trying to figure out how the door panel went back on I finally got it all working. Now my window goes up and down perfectly. :D

Sure is a pretty truck.. I am Glad it when to an EF member. Its come a long way from the day I got it.

I am proud to have it Kris.

:thumbsup: Great Ride you have :thumbsup:

Sharp and clean.

Hopefully this one does not Become the Red "Flyer" II :p

You mean launch it 10 feet into the air? Probably not.

Though one can not say for certain. :p:

Good to see Red Bull stayed in Texas. I always did love this Explorer. Mainly, due to the really nice seats.

Good to see red bull's new registry up and going!!! It's looking good, and I've driven this truck, and it is NICE!!!! Not to mention it has some of my world-famous wiring in it :D Seriously, cant wait to wheel with yea and red bull!!!
