Cobra or Bullitt on Gauge cluster?

I got my cluster yesterday that I bought off ebay, and just got finished changing the odometer to show the right mileage for my truck. I got to thinking about puting "Cobra" or "Bullitt" on the tach part of the cluster, but im not sure which to paint on. I've got bullitt wheels, but should I go with that or Cobra?

Go with Ranger. Unless you do a Bullet or Cobra swap, keep with Ranger.

themed vehicles are cool, especially if you follow thru on custom seats, brake upgrades, and so on.

Same here. If you follow through with the mods to make it more of a themed vehicle, the badges, decals, and the like should be the last thing you add, not the first. That's just rice.
