I have the Hella 500 Black Magic lights on mine... they would go well with all the black on your truck too.

i have the rigid industries "dually" LEDs and i wont get anything else after owning these. they put hellas to shame, and theyre small and easy to mount. mine are in the fog holes but you could find a mount for them.

no lights:


just the Duallys!!!


and the Duallys with my HID headlights:

That looks really good. Where can you buy brackets or would I have to make something. Cuz I really don't want to drill into my bumper, but if that's what it takes then I will.

you can make light tabs and mount them in existing holes on the back of the bumper. buy the tabs off sumit or 4wheel parts, or make your own, just 2 flat L shaped brackets. a hole on one side for the bumper mount, and a hole for the light.
heres how i mounted mine.

i made some light tabs for my 97. there is a great how to guide on this site. wasnt to hard just cut a piece of metal then welded it. i painted the brackets black because im hoping to get a paint job similar to yours in the spring. i can take pictures of them tomorrow when its light if you want

Yeah I'm always down for looking at rangers. Alls I did on mine was use use that truck bed lining stuff I got it at lowes for like 8 bucks a can. I think it took 3 cans to do both bumpers and the rocker pannels. I love it.
