Inexpensive Mods

Being new to having a ranger again, I am curious as to some inexpensive mods everyone has done to their ranger. My Escape I started doing some stuff to it, but being so new, there are not very aftermarket parts available. So instead for now, I can mod the ranger.

You can do the full tank of premium gas mod. ha not really helpful i know. And prolly not too cheap.

K&N air filter
SilverStar Signal markers if you have an 01+
Also depending on year you could do the LED headlight and 4x4 Switch.
Light tabs for the bumper to mount driving lights

It takes up the slack behind your gas pedal. One of those "makes you feel like there is more throttle response and HP". Like adding ZMax.......LOL

After looking through the how-to forum, I found out some of these are true mods. I thought these were mods like blinker fluid, or replacign the air in your tires with helium.

SilverStar turn signals they light up orange but have like a blueish when off. they look best with clear corners or on the 01+ head lights

Amazon.com: Sylvania 3157A/4157A ST BP SilverStar 27-Watt High Performance Signal Light: Automotive

They also have new brighter bulbs for reverse lights too.


......

And yes they are all real mods
