    There\'s a tire on my roof

    Yep... I went to MOABDADC22's house after work today and after a trip to Home Depot, a "street cock," some swearing, drilling, siliconing, screwing (not of each other /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif), and beating.... I finally have my roof rack installed on the Exploder...

    Came home and threw my spare tire up on the roof, tied it down nice n tight...

    I cruised up and down the curb a few times at several rates of speed, and the tire seems to be secure... bounces a little, I think tomorrow I'll buy some ratcheting tie-down straps... Also makes it considerably more top heavy, but I can deal with that... One of these days I want to get me a rear bumper with a tire carrier... almost got one tomorrow, but my frame is 2.5 inches too narrow to use it /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    But enough rambling, I uploaded the pics to Webshots, so in a while they'll be viewable and I'll put the links up /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Well, Webshots officially blows... Apperantly the pictures are supposed to be viewable after a half hour... usually it's before, this time It's been damn near an hour /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    So I uploaded the pics to fordtruckworld.com /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Here's the driver's side:

    Disclaimer: It wasn't my idea to call it that /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    And a reply to my post (because I love reading and replying to my posts), I always laugh when I see the pic of my Explorer when I bought it... And then look at what I've done to it... It's totally different for the worse (as far as looks go) /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif But at least I don't have a nice truck to worry about banging against a rock... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
