Welcome aboard!
You've got a good looking X there. I can see why you would want to lift it as opposed to all of us lowered guys! MAN THAT'S A LOT OF SNOW!

Awesome Explorer, looks super clean. Welcome aboard! You will love it when your mirrors are painted! What else are you going to paint?

Dang, I love Limiteds! The stock rims and grill looks really good for being stock. Nice to see someone else that has to deal with alot of snow here!

Very nice, but where's the molding? Is that part of what's being painted?

You mean alongside the doors? My guess is he just removed it because it doesn't look good at all (IMO). I love the way his X looks and especially the color (never seen it before on a X), it's just so damn sleek and clean

I've seen a couple in the area that are that color. Actually, I was talking about the wheel wells. I just noticed my Cardomain link isn't up there for some reason or I'd show you. I'll find it later. But now I think his is a different year than mine and his doesn't have all the Tupperware that mine has, which is actually a pain in the ass anyway. I also notice he doesn't have the valet lights on the running board, either.

Oh ok, his is a 95-97 Limited I can tell because of the grille. They only used that grille during the 95-97 years. So I guess that would explain why he doesn't have that stupid tupperware and stuff.



Also Eric you CAN remove that tupperware on yours, there is paint underneath I know people that have done it. You'll just have to get the adhesive junk off and then also wax the paint that was underneath to protect it.



Also I just noticed his side mirrors are off...but then I remembered he said he's getting them painted. Still looks funny though

I really can't remove the plastic because it molds right into the running boards. I'd have to take them off, too, and I don't want to do that. Plus there's that issue with my paint so God knows what I'll find underneath.

Welcome AK. I (99sport on EF) have enjoyed seeing the mods you have done to your Limited. I can't wait to see what it looks like with those parts painted.

You must've put different running boards then, too. I'm thinking that's a good idea for me, too. Wouldn't cost me as much to repaint.

Damn you are incredibly lucky, $50 for the entire thing, blah! You suck
Just kidding of course



I have a '99 Explorer but its heavily modded. The interior is completely out of a 2001-2004 Explorer Sport / Sport Trac.




I have more pics than you could ever want and they are all available by clicking here.
