I have some fist gen factory ones on my garage wall, that I ready just for this. ;) I figure I'll glue a magnet on them when the time comes :p:

They even say "EXPLORER" on them:D

They don't treat the X as a "station wagon" in Ca like they do in Az? In AZ explorers don't need them since they aren't a truck.

~Mark

That's a negative. :( The law reads 'any motor vehicle with three wheels or more'.

So I'll rig up something temporary to get it signed off. I can't see myself having mud flaps on this thing full time since it only sees the road for a few miles a year. And mud flaps rate right up there with bug shields and brush guards.
 






Ive never checked out your rides really but I clicked on it in your sig and read this thread, your explorer has come so long, and it looks amazing man!

Anymore plans for it?
 






Not the fabbin' I wanted to do this weekend but whateva! :D


They're not pretty, but they'll keep the fuzz off my back.

You're tellin' me! Its hard for me to look at these things. :(

After my cop buddy comes out to sign my ticket off, I see these thing ending up in the rear cargo area. I may or may not remember to put them back on.

Updated pics from a better camera.
 






Very creative with the disconnect mud flaps. I can see them selling to all the wheelers that drive on asphalt in CA.

Out of curiosity, if the rig had out of state tags on it, would the CA "Fuzz" still write a ticket? How bad do they enforce that law?

I'm not sure. This is the first time in 10 years that I've been pulled over. Really, my Super Duty would fall into the same infraction. I think they really only go after the drastic offenders. But really I think they're just pulling you over in hopes of catching you for something bigger and badder. I thought he'd let me off the hook since its not a DD, its registered and insured, and I don't have any warrants (in this state :p: ), etc. But they have to justify what they did all day too, I hear.
 












Weekend Update, Section? It was a beautiful three-day weekend to get some fabbin' done. ;)
 






I've been a good kid lately so Sarah bought be a GoPro. :D
