    I have the same truck as you, 94 XLT, cept mine's the light grey leather interior. I was going to do something very similar to yours, however i have a few questions....

    1) Where's the 4x4 buttons?
    2) How'd you cap off the vent that's supposed to be there?
    3) WHY DID YOU LOWER A 4x4 VEHICLE?

    Also, out of curiosity, how much time did it take you to make the custom dash insert? Is that fiberglass, or it almost looks padded and vinyl'd?

    no hard feelings here...

    but that looks like bass boat black paint.....is it?

    one tip - block sand - it will get rid of all of those waves in the bondo..

    otherwise looks good!

    1st off thanks for posting :-D heres the answers to your questions
    1. i got my truck used so i really didnt have a choice 2wd or 4x4 so yeah its a 2wd wen i poped off the vents there was the 4x4 plug back there but i just dont got the transmission
    2. piece of plastic glewd to the front of it it dosnt show in the picture tho
    3. i never go off roading lol and i hate the big gap between the wheels and the fenders it was only 30 bucks for the parts and i can remove it any time just gotta lift the truck up :-D

    and for the dash piece wow that took about a month 1st time the screen broke so i sent it to the guy i got it from and he sent me a new one so that took about 2 weeks and its all bondo just that the paint is thick so it looks like that primer 2 layer paint 2 layer clear coat 1 layer

    over all nice project. I'm not into the lowering.. of course if you could make it look like that saleen explorer.. then slamming it looks nice.. but that's just me..

    I do go off- road from time to time.. even in the city.,.. curbs, medians, not an issue :-) those pesky on/off ramps come up on ya so quick sometimes


    anyway .. looks like you're getting friendly with bondo too! .. I love the stuff.. I found if I used fiberglass sheetrock tape I can get nice strong results ..

    I have a 1998 XLT 4wd ..

    anyway great job..

    believe me, I do understand how much sanding you might have done...that's working with bondo for you...and I'm still going to say block sand. it will get rid of some of the waves that you have.
