Little add ons

Ok well I don't actually know what to call these things. I can only describe them. Ok well first is this visor that you attach to the truck above the windshield outside the truck. The other is a type of visor for the back of cab that raps around kind of like a roll bar. But I'm looking for these and how much they are. I like the way they look, I think it makes the truck look bigger and more rugged.

here is an image of what I'm talking about, it has both of them in it:

The front is a moon visor. Got one on my truck, they look good if your truck is a little sporty. The back is called a racer back. I personally don't like them but it's your truck and if you like it, go for it.

yeah, I love the way they look. I don't know why I'm not to much into exterior or interior mods but for some reason they just jump out at me. I like things pretty simple and plain.

in my eyes it isn't ruining it. I think it would look good with that stuff on it. Hey your truck is yours, mine is mine. I just asked what those were and where I could get them and thank you for telling me but to each there own. and this is mine LOL.

I know it's "to each, his own" , but you gotta understand.... there are still people walking around that think the Mullet is a stylish haircut.

In my neck of the woods vehicles with similar products are dubbed " Beaner mobiles ". Good rule of thumb, if it's cheap and easy to do, then it is overdone and probably looks cheesy.

If you do go ahead and get them, I will NOT continue to berate you, but as long as you have not made the purchase yet, I feel it is my civic duty to deter you.

Well first its not cheap and I havn't seen to many rangers with it. But you can keep going I understand. I personaly HATE those civic bumble bee exhaust that people have on there cars.

I think I may get those little lights that go on the moon visor to actually.

I could take a **** on my hood and call it a mod that many rangers dont have. Doesn't mean its nice.

The front visor, that doesn't look too bad. I've seen those, and especially on a lifted truck they look nice.

But when all of us are basically saying "eww thats ugly" you should realize that you are buying something to impress other people. Whether you admit it or not is the thing.

But then again, Mark98XLT needs to stop posting crap. Apparently telling you "ewwww i hate it" 3340598354 times is supposed to be polite.

hey dagger id say go for it its your truck like you said, to each man his own like someone said earlier true to that. I personally like the moon-visor when since the recall has been out at our dealer i have seen a lot of rangers but i saw one it was a stock2000 2wd ext cab ranger flareside dark wedgewood blue it had a visor and that with chrome wheelwell lips it looked really good the visor was the 1st thing that caught my eye it was an older mans truck not too many people have them b/c there about 2-300bucks before you gettem painted if i had the money id get one but not the racerback.
