I was thinking silver with the red on my truck would look good.
I also wanted a black stripe on the sides of the power dome and then around the grille.
Thanks for the look with silva, it has to be the best color combo I have seen foro a multi colored hood.
Yea you know its hard to imagine the way something will look when its painted... Will this look good or will this look stupid. Such a tough question. You really have to think about how the lines will match up and how the colors will mesh together because its real easy to put a lot of work into something and have it look dumb. Sure i may have over did it a little with the ovals, I honestly think it may have looked better without them, but you just dont know till you actually do it. So i guess it is what it is... there wont be another one like it, and i bleed blue, people that know me will understand why I put 2 big *** ford ovals on my hood :p. oh and any paint questions dont hesitate to ask.
Supercharger... Turbo is a much different animal. I had to get bigger injectors, boost gauge, tuner (already had one), MAFia by diablosport, throttle body, throttle cable, colder sparkplugs, air filter. Now there are a few things i had to buy because my 4.0 is an explorer 4.0. Such as the throttle body, throttle cable, air filter. The kit was made for a ranger 03-11 the early 4.0s are just a little different
Yes 5.5 psi, doing dataloging with don lasota at lasota racing. We are going step by step slowly working up to being able to do some wot pulls. Just got done doing the idle and free rev logs for him. So going to be doing some pulls as soon as the roads dry up
Love the pics! Mind if we use some when we build our customers section? We typically like to use first name & State/Province. Let me know.
PS.. if you lived closer... I'd get you to paint a few of our trucks. Our 02 explorer particularly could use a good paint job. LOL. I still think a nice Moddbox logo would have looked cooler. hahhaha. But honestly... I love the Ford emblem.
Very nice. Love the wheel package and dual pipes. We're working on diff plates for the 8.8 .. think that would look nice on there too :) (the one on there looks pretty alright... guess we need to be a bit bias though lol)
Great thread! Great truck! Awesome look! Really dig it. Got some thoughts:
LL/DWB/Deep Wedgewood Blue is one DAMN GORGEOUS color when she's nice, shiny, clear, and clean. I was amazed at what it looks like with brand new paint. Mines so scratched up I couldn't remember. lol. The praises also apply to Kona. Great color choice.
It's really really weird to me seeing a SOHC without a 4whl ABS pump on the fender and the small engine bay fuse box. Moddbox install looks awesome! I'll be seeing a kit in person soon near the Seattle area. Even pondering one myself but I blow enough manual trans in NA form. lol.
One question: any reason for not updating the bumper/valence? Just curious.
Keep up the good work and the build thread. I'll be following.
Thanks man. I really need to wheel out my whole truck. Ranger+4 wheeler trails= lots of branch scratches. Oh and a snapped antenna. The bumper... Well yea it looks terrible it was a good deal, so i painted it and it just fits terrible absolute garbage aftermarket bumper. Still pondering what i want to do there. Thinking about making a heavy duty steel one, thats not big a gaudy.
Ill have some videos of pulls soon, shes almost tuned ready to rage
