Mods...need ideas

My Ranger:


Graduation is coming up. So far I'm asking for some Treadwright mud tires. I'm buying lock out hubs this summer. I have already added a new CD player and a CB radio....give me more ideas. Suggest things that are on the cheaper side, meaning nothing like suspension lifts.

what size are the tires you're getting?
body lift is 165 shipped to your door, not expensive.

yeah i know lol. It's ugly as hell, but it was that for 25 bucks to keep the snow out or a $200+ tonneau cover. I'm gettin 31's, but if I get a BL I'm gonna get 32's. The Body lift is only $165 shipped, but I do not have the ability to do it (which means having to pay a shop $300+ to do it), nor do my parents have all the tools or the space...both have office jobs, we only have the usual house tools, nothing special.

taking the trim off this summer. mud flaps are on during winter because of all the salt on the roads. they keep the rockers form rusting.

Cold air intakes are over rated. Just do the air box mod.

get a front valence. don't completely take the mudflaps off. trim them so that piece is still inserted and molded with the flare. i took mine off and regret not cutting them up first cuz i get so much sh*t in my flares now, especially in winter.

where in MI are you? there is a good number of guys on here within an hour of detroit. myself included. i have no space to offer, but i do have tools and two hands.

instead of that topper, find a used tonneau cover (flat vinyl ones). i found one near dearborn for $75. look on craigslist or similar sites.
