No pin stripes

Haven't had my truck but a week, only thing I've done is, added some rain guards (vent shades) and removed the factory pin stripes. I think it gives it a cleaner look, I'll post pics later if anybody wants.
Don't know why I'm posting about this, but it kinda feels good to let Ranger Forums in on the know....?

Letter. My dad makes fun of me when I say 'word', by saying 'letter'. removing the pinstripe is a good thing.

Shortly after i got my truck, i removed the ugly 90,s striping that the previous owner put on it. I have also got rid of the mouldings on sides and am in the process of removing the factory stripes along the upper part of the body. None of it freaking matched any way. Next is to paint the flairs black.

My XLT came loaded with every option available for a 4 cyl short bed regular cab 2wd and it still looked a little plain, so I had custom pin stripes installed. I like it.

I removed the pin stripe from mine (dont think it was factory) and I also removed the factory EDGE stickers from the bed. I didnt like the way the burnt orange looked on the Bright Island Blue truck I have LOL. I did put the 4X4 off road stickers on the rear of the bed and love the way they look.
