    Here's the moment you've all been waiting for: pictures of my new ride, and an official list of my plans for it so far /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    It's in really nice shape, there are a few scratches in the paint and a piece of trim on the driver side needs to be reglued. I'm going to replace the muffler, mine has a hole in it and makes a funny sound. Otherwise, it's in perfect shape.

    It runs really well and is really clean inside, no rips or tears. It has tan interior and the cool lumbar support seats with power adjustment. It also has a sunroof which is a nice addition.

    I was allowed to keep my rims and 31 inch tires, so I had them mounted on the 94. It looks alright for now, but eventually I want to get some chrome 15X8 Modular wheels.

    Other plans are a 3 or 4 inch lift, brush guard, safari basket, and 32 or 33 inch tires. It might take a while to get all the stuff though, with a new monthly payment taking a nice chunk of my pay. I will probably be able to get a lift kit and maybe the new rims with my tax return though, so that will be out of the way soon.

    yeah black works, but Chrome is going to be much much much better I think /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    They're not running boards, just a skirting... It goes down about and inch lower than the body... I'm still debating whether or not to keep them. They're plastic so I think they help prevent rusting in the area where I had a lot of rust on my 91... I guess I'll just see how it is after I lift it...

    I'm a member at explorerforum.com... I actually copied and pasted this post from there /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Anyway... my 91 hit about 220,000 miles and started to run like it... plus the rust and the extreme ugliness... In a way I sort of liked the ugly part because I had no problem going to the woods and just beating the holy living [darn] out of it... But I kinda like having a nice SUV, because I don't go to the woods very often so I want a nice around town truck... My Explorer is very nice and is comfortable, just the right size... I did my homework before getting my first one, I turned down the Jeep Cherokee, the Chevy S-10 Blazer, and the Nissan Pathfinder before deciding on the Explorer... it's just the right size, not too big, not too small, it's got enough power, and all that other crap that I wanted...

    Oh and the front brakes went out on my 91 about a week before I traded it in /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif
