2001 rangers FTW!

oh, and BTW, that is a dangerous question to ask lol... There are so many options!.

First, I would reccomend taking it to a smaller, but reputible shop (make sure its not one of those shops that tells you something is wrong when it still has tons of miles left on it, cause they want your money.) Take it to a shop, and have the mechanic look it over from nose to tail, and tell you if anything is wrong. have him fix what your not equipped to, and fix what ever you can do, yourself.

here is a link to my mod thread.


There are a lot of other guys that know a lot about looks, and technical mods on here too. I would start by searching the How To section, and cranking your torsion bars (dont go over 2") and leveling your truck. that will improve the looks a TON. Then after that, the sky's the limit, just make it YOUR truck. If you see someone else's mod and like it, copy it, or take the idea and come up with your own version of it.

Happy Modding!
