Fender Bender Fixes

Okay so I know I pretty much ghost exist on here. But here's the deal, I have a stock ranger... I don't have anything on it that didn't come out of the ford catalog except a Delta Diamond Plate box... I wasn't planning on changing anything until the warranty was up at 100k mi but some jackass didn't understand that 5 mph in the parking lot really means 5mph.. Oh, and STOP written on the parking lot asphalt also means "do not do 35 mph and gun it to beat me".

This is what I had:


Anyhow... that withstanding this is what I'm dealing with:

So, my question to the Ranger nation is, should I just get it put back the way the factory put it out in 2011, 49k miles ago, or should I opt to take that insurance money and get a non-factory bumper? I'm going to keep the bed stock, but eventually I'd like to replace the tires with some 30x9.50s, 1" body lift, grill guard, and some additional lights. Then do an intake, throttle body spacer (for sound), and exhaust on it.

Let me know what you guys/gals think.

And if this is any help, this is the trail that I like to take my ranger out. This is where I go shooting at it's maximum flex point for the stock rancho suspension.



As always, on the green dot trail with my discover pass in the windshield.

Well, you have options "MPDfiberbodywerx.com" sells a complete kit, hood,front fenders,valance and rear fenders, that will bolt right on to your truck for less than $1500. We can also match your paint with gelcoat so you dont have to paint. The fenders have a slight flair which will go along with your lift plans.

Thier are pics on this site that show the body. 310 327 2337.
