I think the Edge rails painted black would look great with the Grabber Orange.

I didn't like my rails too much when I first got my truck but I've gotten used to them and I like 'em now. I sometimes haul around a lot of odd sized junk they've saved me from more than a few scratches and dents.

I got mine from Cabelas I think. They have 3 different kinds. Diamond plate, just plain ones, and ones with just lines that go across or something. They used to have them on their website but that was a couple years ago. The only problem I've had with mine is that the double sided tape they use has lost its stickiness. I've had to use tie straps to keep them down. But they protect well and don't get real hot like the metal rails during the summer.

Glad to hear you got some. I wasn't able to make it to that meet...so i'm glad you found a set.


Krylon Fusion Flat Black looks perfect! But.....i also highly suggest some black trim paint. It matches all the factory plastics like mirrors, rear bumper cover, etc. Has just the right amount of gloss, but not too much.

I assume we are talking about mine? I agree... I plan on lifting it eventually and not too happy that I'm going to have to lift it just to get it to par with the other Rangers.... much less add on where I WANT it to be... I did a thread on that somewhere.....

Very possible.... I spend some time in Gig Harbor and that's pretty much the only time I'm south of I-90
