So in the past couple of months I have actually been motivated to do some stuff on my truck. The major thing I did was change the engine cuz I blew it up in the beginning of December. No pics of that though.

From the craigslist ad:

After I waxed and cleaned it all up:

New Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac's 31x10.5x15 and took the the ugly stripes off.















And then painted the flares, front bumper, grille, corner light surround trim things, door handles, and body moldings.






























I also got a lot of other random pics that i will post later.

Plans are:
20% tint all the way around, even over the factory stuff so the backs are little darker than the front-any front tint is pretty much illegal in MI but I don't care too much cuz I'll probably end up tinting the windows with help from a buddy who has done it on a couple of vehicles.

Paint the factory wheels black until I find some aftermarket ones-probably whatever I find a deal on, but I really want American Racing 23 wheels: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/ARE-235865/?rtype=10

2" coil spacers for the front, explorer leafs for the rear with lift shackles

Explorer center console-mount cb and future switches in it somehow

New headlights/ corners-can't decide what ones I want

Newer model tail lights

06+ Mirrors

Rubber floor from a newer Edge model


The dream: 4bt Cummins with a 5-speed manual conversion

and 4" Rough Country lift

^^^After looking at the list that I never wrote down, it is kind of scary how much money it will take. :eek:


And I got some more pics of a little wheeling and boredom:







And the hole I tried to go through:

Yeh, and I'm a poor college student. And on top of that I want to get a road bike, a 75-79 Ford F-100 2wd shortbed, and find a 351 Windsor to build in a performance machining class. I'll never have any money for like 10-15 years. :( Got students loans to pay off after college and possibly getting married to the girl I have been dating for the last 2.5 years.

Yeh, I will hopefully be graduating in 2012 too if I don't keep adding on classes that I want to take but are not necessary. I kind of want to add up the prices of what I want to do, but do not want to know the total.
