im sorry but i dont understand why he would bag/body drop/chop top an explorer and then make it out to be a dragster. if he bags and body drops it then it should be made to drag but not drag racing. jus to drag the ass off on the highway and i really dont care for the hood either but thats jus my 2 cents

^^ Looks good. Are the door handles photoshopped or just bad body work?
I was thinking the x looked photoshopped cause the paint looks weird(other than being flat black). But it could jsut be a bad picture quality setting. Something just doesn't look right about it.

Btw, I'm not saying it is photoshopped, just giving my first impression of the pic.

deff. not photoshopped. body work needs to be went over again. i didnt do it. a shop in n.c. hacked my truck up pretty bad...it needs a LOT of work. the front suspension is a mess... and rather embarrassing might i add.

yea, just bagged. no bd. its got a 4 link in the rear with the bags mounted on the lower bars. the front suspension is a touchy subject. the wheels toe in an ungodly ammount bc the ppl who bagged it didnt flip the tie rods.

I know you've stated the front is a touchy subject, but many of us having been wanting to see how front bag job on one of these would look - any chance of pictures ?
We'll be nice about it, we know you didn't do it and that it's in no way your fault.

I for one would really appreciate it.

I didn't think the whole truck was PS'd, just the door handles. You can see the shadows in the paint. I saw your rear susp. in your other thread...looks bad ass! :thumbsup:

i worked on that chopped prostreeted x at the interior shop i worked at for a while..the truck is def cool but at the time it had a lot of little things wrong with it that that just seemed like stupid oversights.
and if i remember correctly it had to be painted at least twice maybe more due to poor body work or the paint bubbleing or something. it really is a hot truck in person though,

and i think i may have wrapped some b or c pillar trim in it...and i believe i built the rear upper hatch panel-lol
