1998 Splash Photos

Alright, thanks to Justin for his help with photobucket. If there are no pics, it's the operator, not the teacher.

Here's my stock 98 Splash, purchased 12/3/97, by me. The only thing I changed in it was the radio and I went with a Sony Xplode - I pretty much just listen to sports talk all the time anyway. 108,000 miles later, pics taken this past Sunday.

Will be adding projector headlights (black), black out tails, and a smoked 3rd brake light within the next 3 weeks.

Future adds will include single in/dual out exhaust, fog lamps, and new paint job for the roof, and new tires and rims - next year.

Here goes;

Very nice truck! 1998 was the last year of the Splash and the only year they came in that body style, so you have a pretty rare truck!

Thanks to everyone on this board. I have gotten a lot of ideas on how to upgrade the appearance and performance. One change at a time, I only have so much money to spend with one in college right now.

We spent the last 3 years fixing up his Dodge Ramcharger, so it was my Ranger's turn now.

Forgot to mention and this is no commercial. I have used Pinnacle car care products to maintain the exterior over the 10 years. The product I specifically use is called Souveran(carnuba paste wax), and an 8 oz tub of it costs around $80. You should be able to do about 25 - 30 applications with it so it lasts awhile. It is worth it. You can find it online from a lot of places, and it is manufactured by Classic Motoring Accessories out of Tampa.

Dan - Good catch! It is in the middle of a roadway...a road that's been built going to a hockey arena under construction and I passed a sign that said "No tres..." to get there, but it looked like a good spot for a picture. It was just washed, but at my home, the water on the road is from an irrigation sprinkler that had gone off before I got there...
