i was just thinking, someone could easily steal our tail lights

especially if you have nice aftermarket ones like my LED's. someone could easily walk up with a phillips head screw driver and poof they're gone! lol that would suck so bad

hahaha yeah right. more like steal the whole truck. a ranger is the easiest thing to break into. all it takes is 30 seconds or less and a screw driver

That would suck because I would have to drive to certifit and I just hate that place!

Dont forget the 3rd brake light! only 2 screws!

and the front and rear bumpers! 4 bolts each!

and only 6 bolts on the bed!

damn..

atleast I have lug nut locks!

Not just Rangers....take a look at EVERY late model pickup truck....hell....ANY pickup truck. Same story.

Another thing....how about that tailgate? Had a few of my old work truck's tailgates stolen. Pretty easy item to take as well.

LOL speaking of the tailgates. quite a few of my buddies had rangers in high school, one day we come out from class, and tons of trucks, including theirs, had their tailgates taken off, and set in the beds of other trucks hahaha

pretty funny
i was thankful to have a car at the time
there was guys walking all over the parking lot trying to find their tailgates lmao

why do you think they are always for sale in the classifieds? some hooligans go around and gank them. BTW, the ones i sell i get from a certifit type place.

atleast be nice if you get the vatozone ones, put your old ones back on!

there was a kid at skool with a hi-jack on his rear bumper and he did the trick i was thinking of. drill a hole through the bolt after you put the nut on and put a padlock through it, i guess you cant really do that with the lights, but my main concern i have before buying mine, is people coming up and busting them out

The bad side of me says steal them. But the good side keeps me from doing it.
