2003 Explorer XLT
Hi, just got a 2003 XLT and I'm excited to make it look more like a truck than a mini van like it currently does. I'm going to be putting some bigger LT tires on it and I'm in the process of removing the bulky mini van running boards. I have removed the plastic pieces and the flat metal boards, and am now left with the 3 brackets on each side. Could anyone tell me what size the bolts that hold those brackets are? I'd really like to know so I can get a socket to fit them and get them off as easy as possible. Thanks! :)
