So i had to fix brake line. got underneath of it and found a pinhole in a line so it sprayed fluid all over tank. couple lengths of line and wheel cylinders later, i have good brakes.

Remember That bent to hell bumper and off color non working tail gate? Got these off my wrecked 87. A long with the 1 inch receiver hitch. the ball is stuck

----------


Installed my mirrors. when i bought the truck their was a bunch of weird stuff missing. mirrors, the brake lights and turns didn't work because the flasher switch was gone, no reverse light bulbs... i think he was using it as parts truck since he had one identical in driveway next to it...

----------


Put a brush guard on off a newer explorer. i kinda like how tall it is.

----------


Nite Shadez Tail lights Markers and turnsignals.

That damn wet rock road was dirty.

----------


Car wash missed a spot. Finally wore out what was left of my 32x11.50 15s. Got some "used" 31x10.50 15s.

----------


These are my nasty lookin stock springs.

----------


Did a 1" budget boost with the painted springs off of my explorer.

----------


After the 1" boost. I can tell a difference, can you?

So i took the brush guard off to start painting the chrome on the front. going to do the Grille and around the Headlights too.

----------



Started putting it back together. Should i put the ford emblem back on? i think im going to get it apart and modify the color myself...



----------

Decided no Ford emblem. Til its a different color


Don't judge because my license plate is crooked. Im weird like that.
