Gotcha, I'm not a fan of the bed liner look on flares but if you like it.

Personally I would just spray them semi gloss black and be done with it.

I i followed a thread that i found another forum ill see if i can find it .. basically i bought the cvs and hubs for 2000 and older and i used rugged ridge manual hubs .. you have to buy a couple different seals buts really its very easy you need a dremel to clean some stuff but besides that its plug and play it took me about 6 hours total but i had a good idea of what i was doing for i went for it .. if anyone wants to do it i can walk you through or answer questions if you get stuck at any point

I think im gunna do the black plasti dip i think it holds up really well and i just used it on a couple interior parts that the paint wasn't holding up and it seems to be way more durable and since i have a full can still (the parts i did were small) i could probably get away with just buying one more can

I really like them if my rims were 8inch wide I woulda got the same as mikerider because that's like a 33x11.50 if I'm not mistaken which I think does look better.12.50 personally I think are a little overkill if you do a lot of street driving .. But I'm really happy I got what I did for my setup and what I drive their perfect

They look good. I wish a 33x11.5 was made on a 15 inch rim. I think that would look great on our trucks with rims that had back spacing that made the tires stick out a little!

305/70R16 that's basically a 33x11.50 I'm pretty sure I just didn't wanna change rims cause I was already vested in mine with the powdercoat and I like that their a factory forged aluminum wheel

I know, but what I'm saying is that 15 inch rims have more backspacing options. That's why I want 33x11.5s on a 15! Haha they look good though man!

Looks great!

Few questions: where did you get the carpet? What paint did you use? How much was it to recover the Explorer seats?

I used the sem and the seats were 520 and 200 for the headliner and the pads in doors and the center console lid .. I got the carpet from stock interiors I was happy with the quality but not the form fit cut I had to do a lot of cutting to get it in and they wouldn't answer the phone
