Well I have been busy with work, and making some important life changes ( joined the Air Force), and now that summer is here I have more time to work on the truck, and I have been doing that a little bit, but I had some very important repairs to make before I could continue modding. I want to do a few more things, not too much though, I will be parking the truck in October for quite a while as I embark through basic training and tech school, god I will miss the truck. Well here are some pictures of what I have been working on.
First off I had some serious back brake issues, and I will never take anyones word on truck repairs unless I see it for myself (long story, the brakes should have never got this bad, especially the drivers side!)
Drivers side, where the heck are the pads!!!
Passenger side, not as bad, but down to the wear bar, and also some of the broken hardware.
$200 dollars later, much much better
Had to get new drums too, painted with caliper paint
Gutted the backseat so I would have more storage room
Floor I built, the backseat can hold quite a bit more without the jump seats.
Picked up a set of Explorer lighted visors with home link and voice memo, very nice.
Other mods I have done throughout the past few years:
OHC, Auto dim mirror, and Home link visors
My favorite mod of all, EATC, plus my VHF Radio, 800mhz scanner, siren, and switches for my emergency lights.
Explorer Dome Light
Turn Signal Mirrors modded to fit 01 mirror style
and last interior mod the explorer sport gauges
And the outside of my truck, older pic, but not much has changed.
I am currently looking for explorer seats, I almost had a set of power heated seats in gray, which I am having a hard time finding, but the junkyard crushed the explorer!! It was a 99 Limited Explorer, so it had an EATC, steering wheel with controls, and a whole bunch of good stuff that is now crushed!!! I almost cried when I saw the power seat controls sticking out the side of the car, and hen the limited logo. The cruelness! If anyone has a set they want to get rid of let me know. Also I might be doing some sort of dual exhaust, but I need some $$ first. Any suggestions on mods are welcome I am always looking for new ideas, and the cheaper the better.
