I only got that assumption from the pictures you just too I didn't know it beforehand ha. I appreciate the time you took for that. Is you bird your daily?
If there's no snow on the ground, I'm driving it. I have a work supplied van I drive to and from work (except on Fridays/really pretty days where I don't have to drive to many clients) but yes, she's my daily. I'm looking at a 2002-2005 Explorer for a winter beater.
My bird is Traveler's old bird (he's a member here) and he did most of the good stuff to it (PI Swap, Mark VIII TC, Rear pumpkin/Aluminum rear lower control arms, 3.73:1 trac lok, front and rear shocktower connectors, Mustang GT PBR Swap, 1.5" Eibach drop springs, KYB GR-2, 89 SC Front and rear sway bars, 93 Mark VIII one piece aluminum driveshaft) and I just have done a few things to make it "mine" such as removing the wing (will be filling the holes when I'm ready to dip the car), putting 18x9 5x108 wheels on it, soon to come Cobra front and rear brake upgrade, and fixed a few little issues with his accessory gauges (the mechanical ones were leaking, so I installed electrical ones), better Sony stereo with bluetooth and front/rear USB, Sony 4 way 5x7 speakers all around, and a 12" MB Quart dual voice sub in a box in the trunk with a 100W amp (not much, but enough for my needs).
I have her up on stands right now until I can get the rear upper control arm bushings pushed out and new ones pushed in, hopefully this week that will be done. Here she is as of yesterday...
And this is her when she's not getting worked on.
