Plans for this limited include:

TT with shackles
Bilstein Shocks all around
New set of 265 75 16 Michelin LTX m/s
Updated XLT leather seats
Kenwood in dash navigation /DVD
Reverse camera and backup sensors
MTX thunder form in place of Mach

I plan to make this my main Daily Driver so once I get the feel of this Explorer with the 3.73s and the 265s I will decide if I want to upgrade to 4.10s

This Afternoon I plan to paint the wiper cowl. and get it ready for the correct color hood to be installed. :D I will be dropping off the factory limited wheel off today (the only one damaged in the roll over) to get repaired. I chose to repair vs replace. Id like to keep the set of four wheels together.

Good idea keeping the original wheel, what kind of turn around did they quote you?

Sadly the 16" wheel came bad not repairable. They said it was bent in the center section. I was hoping I could keep all four wheels on my limited in memory for John.
