Whats your budget? Are you looking for performance or just something to set your truck apart from other Ranger owners?

Remove the mudflaps. A wash, wax, clean wheels, and polish the headlights.

I would do a bunch of Explorer mods. Overhead Console, Auto Mirros w/ Autolamps, Explorer seats with console, EATC..............and you can do them all cheap if you look at the right places.

Save your money.
Get away from the "I want it so I'll have it" mentality.
This economy we have now is not very conducive to a want/can have/deserve attitude.

Clean it up real nice, keep an eye out for local deals on wheels or toolboxes, craigslist can be your friend. The first thing I would do is the foglight mod, especially if you drive a lot at night with highbeams. https://www.ranger-forums.com/showth...t=foglight+mod
