get a lower valance off of a Sport (colormatched w/ fogs)!

A billet grill would look good too

The billet looks good but i saw a 2007 ranger today and it had the colormatched valance with the factory chrome grill and it looked real good. What do yall think, billet or factory chrome grill?

i have the same thing on my truck, and i think 35% on front is the darkest you can do, legally anyways, back you can do what you want
also recommend the tint strip on the windshield, does wonders for the sun glare and dont look to bad, especially if you put a decal on your windshield

also maybe look into some nerf bars for the truck

Actually you cant tint your front windows more then 70% here in CA, but you will never get and greif from cops with 35%.

Its the perfect trade off of darkness vs not having to roll down your windows everytime you see a cop
