06+ side molding and flares?

Can the side molding stuff be removed on a newer ranger? That plastic stuff thats comes up about a foot? Also wondering about the fender flares that look like bolts hold them on.

I'm not sure what side molding you're talking about but the fender flares just have clips that snap into holes in the fenders.

I'd imagine it's just 3m double sticky taped on like emblems. Doesn't make sense for them to punch holes in only the trucks that got 'em because it's an optional item(the side moldings). But...I've never heard of anyone removing those stupid things ever before this. So there's only one way to find out... Pop a door panel off and look at the inside door skin with the window rolled up. You'll be able to see if there's studs sticking through the sheet metal or not.


Flares.... pins the clip into the fenders and on the inside lip there's little christmas tree pins that usually get destroyed upon attempting to remove.

Ive been looking at a 07 white on and along the bottom its all grey it looks plastic, but im not sure, i havent seen one up close, i was just wondering if it would come off because i dont like the two tone. It starts at the rocker panels and comes up about a foot. Shane, goto seattle craigs list and put in ranger fx4, theres a white one, a level2 that has it.

just curious about the bumper in the pic, their are 2-parts bumper cover i assume and lower valance for fogs, could anyone verify if their is a metal bumper behind that cover, or if a person wanted this setup, what would have to be found at a yard?

p.s could this setup fit on a 2001 ranger? what is needed? thanks

'06+ trucks utilize bumper covers. What you see are covers. Behind it there's a thin metal bar that runs across the bumper width that the bumper brackets are bolted to. It's what's really the "bumper" for impact. Then the top cover is "christmas tree'd" into the steel frame bumper, the valence connects to the steel bumper and the bumper cover.

I've found eBay auction listings in the past for parts of '06+ bumpers. The metal reinforcement(the real bumper behind the cover), bumper cover, valence. etc. LMCtruck may carry some of that stuff now as well.

The 06+ bumpers are 100% swappable onto all 98+ so long the bumper you're usings hardware(bumper brackets) match the bumper you're putting on.
