Five days ago the decision was made to go full nuts pimping the E-350, instead of the Explorer.

Putting the Players on the Explorer makes Yet Another Lowered Truck... But full balls pimping the E-350 is what I like to call.... "unique"..

So that's the new direction, and therefor, the reason behind this fresh new thread.

Lots of things planned. A few things already on order. Critiques and suggestions welcome. Judgement, not so much. :)

Here are some pictures from the day we got.. what my wife so eagerly named "Chester".

That was mid 2012.

This is today.

Before today, the only noticeable change has been the dark window tint. 5% from the top of the windshield all the way around, except only 20% on the cab doors and the rear doors, for visibility.

Today's really small, but first parts went on.

Weathertech.com vent visors. I have never owned a vehicle this long without them. But until 5 days ago, the van was all utility and zero pleasure. So it was the logical first step toward turning my giant brick into a schwifty pimp wagon.

What are those wires for?
And why do they look like they will fit so neatly in this space on each fender?

They must be more than meets the eye with the wires being there.

So, today (Friday) I had an excellent day.

I got a couple things in this week, but I got a big box of awesome, and another big box of very cool, on the same day. :)

Oh and a third box of hell yes. :)

(in no particular order) (and split into two pictures)

1. Left to right: (all 14" tall) Black, Chrome (mirror) on black, Purple (reflective), (YES REFLECTIVE) on black.
with the two warnings (one for the PimpVan, and one for the TJ).. Total purchas: $40. Dude has so many options when vinyl is concerned. Did I mention the purple is fucking REFLECTIVE???
