    It’s been a while since I’ve posted some pictures of my Trac. I had my Adrenalin rims powder-coated gloss black. I also installed a Magnaflow cat-back exhaust that I picked up from another owner. Prior to installing it, I had the tailpipe section powder-coated gloss black also.

    Then (newly purchased almost three years ago) & now:

    Nice! dig the spinners on the rims. I also like the color keyed mirrors. I wonder if those second generation mirrors will fit on my first gen?

    Looks amazing! I'm a huge fan of blackout and I think your Trac looks so much better. Black and white is a great combination. How do you like the new magnaflow exhaust? They sound mean on the V8s!

    Thanks for the compliments, Phil. My previous 2004 Adrenalin had the chrome side steps and chrome rims. I decided to do something different with this one by going "blackout". I really like how the black/white combo turned out.

    And I like the Magnaflow exhaust. Before I installed that, I'd removed the OEM resonator and muffler and had a Flowmaster Delta-Flow 50 muffler installed. The MF is a bit more quiet at idle, but still sounds good at wide open throttle.

    Thanks.
    1. The spinner caps are Ford OEM. They were optional on the 2005-2009 Mustang.
    2. It cost me $350 to have the rims powder-coated. That was dropping the truck off at the shop, removing the tires from the truck, removing the tires from the rims, blasting/stripping the rims, coating them, re-mounting/balancing the tires, and re-installing them on the truck. I thought that was a really good deal.

    Ok, i found the spinners on Ebay approx $40 each. ( i have the same Adren. rims,assume they will fit perfectly) The powder-coated rims at less than $100/ea is a steal ( were yours chipped-up badly?) Also i want the back-window visor...i have found for a Gen 1...where did you get for Gen 2?

    The spinner caps fit perfectly on the Adrenalin rims. But they can be found for much cheaper than $40 each. I've seen good used sets for as low as $64 on eBay. My wheels were pitted and corroded from years of exposure to Midwestern winters and road salt.

    As for the rear window visor, this is the one that I bought:

    GT Styling 57315 Shadeblade Rear Window Deflector

    It's made for the Gen 1 Trac, but it also fits Gen 2 Tracs.

    The $40 each ones were the EBay used ones...will have to keep an eye out for these.
    My wheels are the same..marked and pitted. Will have to investigate repair options on powder-coating.
    Its strange...that exact Shadeblade was one i was considering buying for my 2004 ST, but when i go to the Amazon link it states that it does NOT fit a 2010 model....did you have to do any altering in any way ?

    I know that that Shadeblade says it's only made for Gen 1 STs, but trust me it fits perfectly, with no modifications.

    I personally think it’s one of the best bang-for-the-buck mods for the Sport Trac. I had one on my 2004 Adrenalin, and it was the first mod I purchased for my 2010. I love being able to “vent” the rear window without having to worry about water getting inside.
