    I just got an 04 for cheap, so no. I think they look incredibley mean though. I will def. consider buying an 05+ body style several years down the road. :thumbup:

    Is it in the latest issue with Avril Lavigne on the cover? I skimmed through to get to her pics (which sucked... too many clothes) and don't remember seeing it.

    Nope, I have my hands full already, I went down to the dealership today to get my oil changed on the explorer and I talked to one of the guys and he ordered a silver GT, loaded with all the options and he said he is paying like $26,500 for it. Then he went on to say he was going to supercharge it and have like 475 horsepower :lol:

    i dont think thats too far fetched actually (crank hp anyways)... depending on what kind of kits companies put out. i mean FrogSR (where'd he go?) had a GT that was supercharged only putting (i think) 7 or 9 lbs of boost and got 350rwhp out of it.

    175 HP from just a supercharger seems a little high :confused:

    Yea, I just saw it in Maxim. Talk about sweet! Too bad those 20's look so damn small! That's the only thing that pisses me off... If I buy an '05 I'm going to need 20's which will cost an arm and a leg, and then the tires will be outrageous as well.

    well... ~375 crank hp - 260 crank hp is 115, and that was on a non intercooled, low boost, base level sc. like i said, it depends on what kits are put out. and when you're throwing on a sc, its not the greatest idea to have stock internals. i mean, you can do it... but forged is always better. plus, you wanna get a better exhaust, and the other typical mods. i dont think people will simply throw on a sc and do nothing else.

    from what i've heard, there is a valve problem on all of the 05's. Apparently they caught it too late and moved forward with using leaky valves.

    That picture makes me feel better about the 05s coming out...now they just need 20" wheels to complete it.
