You can drop Henry off here on your way back east when the time comes. I'll give Henry a good home.   :beerchug:

That's momma's truck. You'll have to fight her for that!

 

No thanks! I'd rather fight you.   :laugh:

Now that I am retired from the Marine Corps and have a little bit of extra cash and time I decided to get back after the F1. We picked up the donor last week. A 99, Awd, 5.0L Explorer. I am doing a body swap onto the Explorer chassis. I got the donor for $500. It has 100k on it. The one issue is the fuel pump is dead. I decided replace it the easiest way I could think of. Yep, cut the floor open. I am not using the body so why not?eab85a1583e5758c7670adef47d7fd65.jpgfc9e6f54e29d2357ec229e7eaab34f35.jpg

The Exploder was no match for the sawzall and cutoff wheel. I will pressure wash the frame and engine tomorrow. I will have to pull the ECM and engine harness to send them off to be modified as a stand alone harness.

We are putting a Vortech super charger on it and need the ability to tune it.

Stay tuned, there's more to come!0c568704b0e702d81a409a62c03bbbc7.jpg6cd9f1b3649811e5fc4147b92f80a93e.jpgff08387243e99d6e5a8ec2a411bf30b1.jpg62627c97fac49beb7d77c742e7fca554.jpg5185a543afeb1fe33fe2243ceb0f6e54.jpg

You made quick work of the explorer. Just have to ask, did you drive it after you voted all the extra off. That is going to be one fine truck!

I did drive it around the property. It rides rough but flys! Cutting all that weight out of it made a big difference. I'm excited to get the old dude on the road. It's such a cool truck. It deserves to be brought into modern times.
