Tell us about it!! I dont recall seeing any of it prior to this thread!! I see LOTS of '03 interior parts(seats, panels, hvac, cluster, etc).....are those L2 pieces? or painted?
Could you tell us about your wheels? Can you please post up a close up of them?? I really like em.
Alright, ask and you shall recieve. Im still pretty new here as you can tell, but Im loving it so far!!
Originally a 97 XLT with a Grey Interior. Bought it with a tool box and Grille Guard.
Dash, cluster, and kick panels are out of a 03 or 04 Level 2, Rest of the panels I painted. I re upholstered the rear wall in black carpet, got a new black carpet off of eBay. And redid the headliner in black headliner material. Seats are again out of a 03 or 04 (Im sure the Level 2's came with pleather so I guess there just XLT? Bought them off a guy). The HVAC cluster is out of a Eddie Bauer Exploder. Has a Kenwood h/u, Kenwood eXcelon 5x7's (Going to be buying Blaupunkt Components soon) a Blaupunkt THA275 amp and a JL 8W1v2-4 sub in a homemade enclosure. And the Hurst Shifter. The trim panels are Stainless Steel!! (Look up Steel It, Stainless in a can)
The wheels are 16x7 Cragar Chrome Soft 8's (get a pic for ya later), tires are Goodyear Ultra Grip ICE (winter) GoodYear Eagle GT (summer) in 225-60.
On the outside it has, power mirrors, billet antenna, 2.5 Steel Cowl Induction Hood, Diamond clear Headlight/Parking combo with 8000k HID's. A 4x4 valence that I gotta get new fogs for, and will be replacing the chrome blade with black. I also have shaved the cab seams, a Summit Racing Roll Pan with DEI Light'n'Bolts, APC Euro Tails (wanting 06 Tails) a all red 3rd brake light, LeBra Tonno.
I have Federal Mogul Progressive Rate Coil Springs (All factory height), Stock Leaf Springs, a Bronco Rear Sway Bar, Polyurethane bushings on sway bars (Have everyother bushing and body mounts from Prothane waiting to be installed). Edelbrock Performer IAS shocks, and some other stuff Im probally forgetting.
EDIT (forgot the engine): 2.3l with a modified KKM intake, Factory Header, Magnaflow Cat, Flowmaster 40 series SI/DO with Magnaflow Tips. I got a XCal2 out getting setup for this engine. A lil later on down the road Im looking to find a lower mileage 2.5 and put a Racer Walsh Stage 2 cam, with some head work, and maybe some boost.
NEXT UP: Blue LED's in the Clusters, Chrome Diff Cover, Finish Painting the Undercarrige..Should be done this or next week.
And anything that I come across that I can get a good deal on
