Finally upgraded to a dual din head unit. I also upgraded my front speakers to some Pioneer Coaxials. Disregard the CB, I ditched that yesterday.

Picked up a few other things that I'll be adding to the truck within the next few months as well.

I really like those seats, what did they come out of?

2001 Explorer Sport. I've seen cloth and vinyl options. Both light tan and this dark gray. The vinyl ones seem to only be in the 00-01 Sports and Sport Tracs though. Can't say I've seen vinyl seats in an 00-01 Explorer 4 door.

I looked for sport trac and expo sport seats for a long time with no luck, found one sport with tan interior but the seats were ripped to shreds. So I got leather seats out of an 00 expo limited, I'm happy with them

I sat in these while they were in the junkyard and knew I had to take them home. I love the tall side bolstering they have. Makes me feel more planted while I'm driving.

Mine were the nicest set I found in all the time I was looking, I knew I would eventually find a nice set and I like the way these look over some of the other expo leather seats, the shorty console in the other hand was a surprise, was practically complete minus the cupholders when I found it.

The set I have was the nicest I've found, aside from the 3rd gen Expo seats, but those require more work than 2nd gen seats.

Shortly consoles aren't hard to find here if you pull them from an early year, because nobody wants the cloth armrests. The vinyl ones are always garbage.

The consoles are usually there in the first gen expos, but the armrests on them are usually gone or busted, most 2nd gens here have full length consoles.

Way way waaaaay back in the thread, I see you swapped some #1 torsion bars. How much of a difference was there between the old bars and the new #1s?

The #1 bars are thicker than my old "F" bars were. That means they're stronger and hold the "lift" better.

So this happened today:



Still need to do the rear doors, the roof, the back wall, and the floor. Just doing the front doors made a huge difference.

I didn't think my truck was bad, but after doing just the front doors, I can already tell there's a huge difference.

I could imagine I talked to Lucas on the spray kind and he said it worked but I didn't ask how much they were a can. How much is it a roll and how much yards or foot do you get?
