I picked up a set of mud terrain tires on a set of cherokee rims. Mainly got them for the tires, the rims are the wrong backspace, and in my opinion look awkward

Since the weather has been warmer than usual, it was time to rip the broken seats out. And scrub the hell out of the inside



I'm going to replace the carpet, but for now this works. I have other priorities with the truck right now



Had a set of 99 mustang seats in my storage unit. Some modding to the seat tracks from the explorer, and they bolted right in

Today i thought id try out a new interior dressing that i purchased on amazon. Im usually a Chemical Guys fan, but lately the interior shine isnt what im looking for. This stuff from Detail Kings blew away my expectations. Highly recommend.

Started mounting the mud tires to a stock set of wheels i had kicking around.



With a little help from my new manual tire mounter






Decided to fix the oil leak, found out it was coming from the driver side valve cover.......









Replaced the power steering pump.



And got all the tires mounted






Took her out for a drive finally. Still have a vacuum leak to trace. And the steering is still a little sticky. But she still drives nice. Tires are LOUD!!!!!
