I have the same problem. Have a very good friend/ cousin that has a truck almost identical to mine. Only difference just glancing at it is the tires.

Do a rangerboy101 rim spray job.....DSG them bad boys!! Either that or rotate the rear wheels to the front so the brake dust mods will match.

I think you're truck would look good with modded headlights....do 'em in Duplicolor Metalcast black chrome!!

Trade for styleside!!

Remove those steps!!

Maybe '06 fender and tailgate emblem the truck??

Leave the strap on upfront permanently!!

Oh 06 emblems are in order I just need to go buy them... Along with a sport trac 4x4 emblem....

Can anyone here get really good ford discounts?


And you serious about leaving the strap up front?


Only person I found that would trade with me has an STX bed,

I never see trucks that even have any of the mods I have, since mine are so unique.

You should do the "under the door led strip with transistors" mod.

Get a big red or blue camper shell!! Nobody will mistake you then. You can get one for $50-$100 off of Craigslist if you watch daily. No mistaken identity anymore!

Whats everyone got against step sides? I love mine cuz not alot of people have em.

And I would do the headlight mod, try and find a light bar for cheap, or get a camper.

Google "Tousley Parts Depot"

Its a Ford Dealership that has an online parts department, they sell parts for 10% above their cost. That's the best price I've found on OEM Ford parts. Their customer service is great, and their shipping is quick and very reasonable.

Buy your emblems, etc, off of them

Without those front aux fog lights, it's a pretty stock and common looking Ranger. You'll need some work to stand out of the crowd.

Off the top of head from first glance, I'd say:

- 06 Emblems (Cheap mod)
- Paint the chrome rear bumper and front bumper cover black (another cheap mod)
- Black headlights and corners mod (but it's becoming too popular)

Other then that, you'd have to lift it and add huge meats........or lower it with low pros. You could always just repaint it...LOL
