They're alright, but not my favorite. I would have stuck with the stock all red ones in the same design as you old stockers.

Looks good, so did you purposfully pose your truck with the doors open, or was that an accident?

I didn't have any idea until 5 speedin posted the answer.
I haven't seen another ranger with the same color, I have seen a couple of expo's that had a similar color but it wasn't exactly the same.

My truck was originally sold in Mich. to a person in the service, I bought it from him after he got tranfered down here and was getting deployed. I know that some colors are offered in different regions and not in others ( unless there ordered ) that could be one reason there rare down here.

That's a good looking truck, I really like that exhaust.
Mine's got the black and tan interior. I like that interior color on yours, seems like it would not show dirt as much.

beer looks gooooooood....oh, and the truck too!!lol
if you want the original tails all red, all you need to do is spray them with a few coats of "thinned" red with clear. but these you added look good. keep up the mods.
