Lightbulb Customizing my 1996 Explorer:

I want to add some special parts to my Explorer. Like a custom hood, flared fenders, anything outside of the factory look.
Could you please point me in the right direction for this? Do you have any ideas?
Thanks,
Larry--Ozark

For some explorer stuff you can go to explorer express. They are not a sponsor here that I know of, but they have some high quality parts. I have one of their rear sway bars to put on mine. Its huge compared to stock.

Question Cruise Control Buttons on the Steering Wheel

Has anyone had the problem with the cruise control buttons on the steering wheel coming loose or wearing out?

Do you know where I could get both sides for my 1996 Explorer? Also, what all is involved in replacing them?
Thanks,
Larry

The right side controls have come lose on my '99 Sport and I'm curious too about any solutions to fix/replace this cluster of 3 controls.
