i might do that later, but I gotta take steps...33s cost money $$$ and I am in college... So this is more like a short term. I may do a 2" BL in a year or so, but 3" is too much IMO

yeah, they didn't even make an fx4 in this body style, but I really like how the decal looks on there. Plus, I mean,, I have 4.10, Limited Slip, and ProComp shocks, so the only thing I am 'missing' to be equivalent to an fx4 is some damn skid plates...

So i guess yeah, I am somewhat oh a poser. I just wanted some sort of factory graphic to break up all the blue, and that is the one. I also considered maybe one of the STX themes from the older rangers, but nah...

Looks good Tony. As for the 06 lights, my advice is be patient and hunt ebay. Mine cost me around $60 total, but I bought them one at a time new from dealers who replaced them for superficial scratching.

If you want a transfer case skid plate, let me know. I have one I don't need with all the mounting hardware.

One other thing i would say to do is change your headlights and corner lights over to clear ones. I have the same color and body style as yours and man it makes the front end look 1000000x better. and you can even get the combo off ebay for less than $80! Its def. something to consider. These are the ones I have..by the way..this makes me so mad being that I paid like 20 dollars more about 2 years ago when I got just the headlights!

It made a pretty big difference..I didnt mess with the back..I prob. could and it would look alright but I didnt want the dragster look.
I think your truckwould look perfect with some 265s..and you dont lose to much power/flex/ or anything else.

Hands down, no one can argue that.... I am pretty diappointed in them...not bad, but not great either ...(ES3000)

Those clear fronts look great!!! Also, the torsion crank does make a HUGE DIFFERENCE!!! I never saw b4 and after pics... I will def do that then see about a 2" BL...
