Would you opt against it? Due to the frame looks? Also, can a 2wd edge with tbars get spindles? I always heard they can, and I just tea they can't... I'm confused

2wd edges can yes. They're a bit different than the reg spindles though

It don't bother me either. I'm gonna make custom sliders that double as nerf bars so hopefully that'll close the gap a little. But I wouldn't mind gap guards

That's what I am talking about! 01 swap or just custom honeycomb insert? Also, what year explorer did you get that shorty console out of? I have the full length and am thinking about going shorty

I got a 04 Edge bumper from my local JY for $40. One very small dent below where the passenger side headlight would be. Also got the fog bezel out of the same truck for $10. I cut some pigtails so I can splice for my fogs.



I have it apart for sanding now, minus one support. Bolt is stuck.
