I havent updated in a while cause I have been looking for a few parts .. the front end nose assembly is one of the things I have been looking for . I wanted to find a 93 ford explorer limited bumper and cover , but the closest one i could find is over 250 miles away..So I went to my local U-Pull-It and started looking for something that might work..
I found a 98 mountaineer bumper .. I have done some test fitting and it might work not sure yet gona play with it a bit and see what i can come up with .. for 40 bucks i can afford to play around with it a little bit.

Heres some pics of the first test fitting..

Im weighting on a few things to finish up some of the body work so I dove into the interior .. pulled the 60/40 bench and chopped the center out and made buckets and installed a center console I pulled out of a 93 explorer .. This is the first install just to see how it all will fit together ..
