I was the first to take a 2004 or newer ranger, and completely swap the cluster to LED components. (perhaps this is why everyone PM's me and wants me to do thiers!)

I was the first to figure out how to get the needles off of a 2004 or newer cluster because it was previously thought they would not come off without damaging them.

Also, I think I was the first to have a completely LED truck. Front lighting, back lighting, interior lighting, dash lighting. The truck is also fully HID. The only reason I say this is because I discovered the 'fake-o-bulb' trick for how to make your truck run correct when you do go 100% LED.

I will also be the first to have an SR powered ranger (most likely)

Something only I have on the site: Barbed Wire pinstripes.

Something that only a very very few have: Reversed '06+ Emblems(Painted body + Chrome lettering)

Something that only a very few have: All Black '06 corners(4 members now i believe), painted stock center caps.

Something only I have: Protech Aluminum Headache Rack. BAM!
