Tim's '93 Sport

Hi all. My name's Tim. i live in Colorado Springs, CO.
I've been on the forum for a few months now and figured it's time to make my self known.
I have a 1993 Explorer Sport.
My parents bought the Ex brand new back in '93. When I turned 16 and got my license my parents gave it to me.
Now time for some pictures

Havn't done a whole lot on the Ex recently. Did get rid of the front valence panel and the roof rack crossbars. Looks a lot better now.

Installed a set of KC 26 series driving lights behind my grille. Pretty happy with how it turned out!

Went to U Pull and Pay and got a stock switch and put it in the stock location.

Might be my favorite part of the whole install!

Last winter I got stuck in the snow pretty bad and realized that there really aren't any good tow points on the Explorers. So I decided I should put tow hooks on my Ex before winter set in this year.

I used tow hooks from a 97-02 Expedition and grade 8 nuts and bolts.

Turned out pretty sweet if you ask me!

They also look massive when they fall out of the clamps being used and hit you in the face :mad:
I hadn't realized how massive they were until I put them on!

Good to see another Cayman Green 1st gen Sport. Even your interior is the same color as my truck. It's also interesting that I also install a fog light switch in the same place you did.

Do you have an auto trans, 3.27 (open) gears, and the tow package? If you do...our trucks started out identical.

That's a nice looking first gen. What model and year did you remove the light switch from?

Our trucks are almost identical. The only difference is I have a 3.73 LS.
I like seeing other first gens very similar to mine!

Very nice!
Looks sweet :thumbsup:

Thanks Guys!

The switch was from a 93 or 94 Ranger Splash.

Very nice looking 93 green Sport. Seeing your Sport brought back memories of my wife's 1st Sport which was a 94 in the same color green.

Thanks man!:thumbsup: My Sport has been in the family since brand new. I've grown up taking care of it and working on it.

I'm really bad about taking pics during install... I should really start taking pics when I'm doing work to not only help me document work but to also share with you guys here.

The best pics I have during install are these two. They kinda show the brackets I made up and how I bolted them up. If I have time this week I'll pull the grille and grab some better pics.

My Ex is now A/C free! It didn't work so I figured I would get rid of it. Way more space under the hood now. I'll get some pics of under the hood tomorrow.

And don't worry I haven't forgotten about install pics of the lights, just been real busy. I'll try to get those tomorrow as well.
