Tires may be a bit big for my taste, but I LOVE that paint job.

Stock is Chrome with black lettering. Still havn't gotten around to doing my fender emblems yet. The masking is one hell of a chore...

Thanks for the link, read most of it. Just ordered 3 of the newer ranger emblems, just gotta find a big oval. Im gonna do a true oreo with black . I'll probably have more questions for you once everything gets in

Here is how I did mine.

I wanted the Ranger emblem on the right side so I got a sport trac 4x4 emblem for the pass side. I used Vista's measurements. Thanks Vista.

There aren't any holes behind the Ford emblem. I'm not sure about the Ranger one.

Oh .... Believe me... There's holes there. There wouldn't be alignment studs on the back of replacement emblems and well...

Same with the little ovals on 95+ Ranger tailgates too.


As well as the Ranger badge too.


The only ones that didn't have any holes are 93-94 Ranger and 93+ B-series.

I got the sport trac emblem at the dealer, I think it was off an 06 or so. I know only the newer ones have it. My friend is the head parts guy at the Ford dealership so I got it at cost. I think it ran me like $12.
