LOL!!! Thats good. Some ones gonna pull up beside you to race. They will probably just think its a stock ranger. Except the stacks, roll cage, 2 bottles, and all the other stuff that just looks stock on rangers. HAHA

Looks awesome man! Can't wait to see this thing run down the track.

You forgot the smoke billowing out the top.

Its more for me personally. There are so many folks that have a truck that they strip down and make into a race truck, that look like its going to rattle apart, and your embarrassed to sit in. That's just not me.

Now you can go to the store with the wife and kids in the truck and it will be like stock.

It just gets better and better. Can I ask why the single exhaust? I am sure its for performance reasons. I wanna say a single is better for low end torque, but who knows. I sure don't. LOL

One downpipe coming off of the turbo so no real reason to split off at the turbo. Plus there probably isn't any room to do it under the truck.

They are actually not in it, its just the covers. The airbags are in my garage, minus the covers.
