    On stuff I don't even have yet...

    $65 Pin stripes, being installed on the 25th. I got rid of my gay pink and light blue ones, and ordered some silver barbed wire pin stripes /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    Then I went to D's 4wd, ya know, the place I keep saying is a joke? Well, I ordered a nice brush guard throught them. A Wildcat, it's pretty sweet... That should arrive sometime next week...

    And I'm about to go see my friend at work and prepare to get on my knees and beg him to help me get my lift kit on this weekend... /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    I'd stay away from D's 4WD. They royally screwed me over when I lived in Cheyenne in 2000. I swore I'd drive to Fort Collins to get work done long before I'd let they even look at my Burb. Luckily for me, I was able to use the Auto Hobby shop on base to get my work done.

    2"... It'll do me for now. It was the cheapest and easiest to install..

    Once I get out of Basic Training, though, I have some nice plans for the Exploder, including a solid front axle and 6" of lift... that is if I ever get off my ass and buy my own tools so I don't have to wait till it's convenient for other people... And I want to buy an F-350... It's probably going to be darn near a year though before I'm all trained up and getting my full time E-3 paycheck from the guard...

    ... No one there has ever touched my Explorer... I go there and order crap and put them on myself... It's expensive as hell, but I don't always like to wait until I can get to Ft. Collins 4x4 to order crap... /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    sheeeeit... I'd rather pay $65 and have a professional do it than $20 and do it myself... You saw how my do it yourself paint job on the 91 Exploder went? Yeah, I wanted to save myself $200 so I did it myself... Never again... At least not on anything I'll be driving around every day /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif
