I love the look and stance of these, Just wondering what this would look like on the 3rd gen ranger.

If anyone has pics of a 3gen with something like this, post em up!

I wouldnt be able to get one anytime soon, I'm just throwing ideas around.

I have a similar bumper cover. It's made by Xenon. I didn't care for the Roush duck tail spoiler though. So I went with a hard tonneau cover and a Keystone wing. Still haven't made up my mind on the side skirts.

Those look good... if you like it I'd go for it. Just make sure to keep it clean and color match it... nothing is worse than kits that are installed without being painted.

Ha. Yes I agree.
I would never put them on without painting them first.

I think it would look fine if you did the bumpers too not just the sides.

Yea, I would be doing a roll pan on the back, just not sure on what I'd do up front yet.

Lol, Agreed, it would be colored matched, I think they make valances that come down off it a bit too that would match the sides ok.

Did anyone besides me notice the awesome bike in the pic with the thunderbolt?

Also I say no sideskirts. Roll pan the rear, and maybe the front bumper.
