my ranger and thoughts..

First off I will tell all of you about my truck to give u a feel its a 2004 xlt extended cab ranger forest green tbars cranked and 32x11.5 all terrains on black crawlers, anyways ever since my accident my valence got cracked and my grille cracked everything has gone down hill , someone at my school came into a parking spot too fast and cracked my valence even more/smashed my passenger side foglight, driving home that night all my interior lights on the same circuit aka my gauges, foglights, radio bezel, tail lights went out and I was pulled over by a state police officer for not having tail lights, I explained to him my situation so he let me off with a warning, next morning I drove down to vip and picked up a box of fuses replaced it, still nothing. I am no auto electrician so before I messed with anything I took it to my friend's family auto shop after the first appointment they shorted out after 10 minutes being fixed, after the second appointment same thing happened, after the third appointment I said this is getting ridiculous I went in when he was looking at my truck and turns out when I told the guy to take apart my tails there was a chewed up wire because the backspacing on my tires throws mud/sand in the little tiny hole in between the body and the tail light. Nice to get that off my chest. Now
I am also considering some ultra blue headlights and clear corners , simply because the policemen in my town/state are ***** and I don't want to dump 120 or so dollars into an hid kit to get a ticket for them. any input? should I or shouldnt I

Also if there is anybody in the Maine area let me know I would love to see your rig.

another question , where is the cheapest place to go to buy a new foglight setup, a new lower valence, and a grille, I will post pictures tonight or tomorrow of the looks of things. thanks anyone and everyone for your input or help.

I called a local junk yard and they ordered me a brand new valance for 85 bucks...as far as more fogs...go to the junk yard and see if they have a working set.

Get HIDs, but no more than 8000k. it gets too blue at 8k+ for me. I love my 4300k's in the ranger....and i love my 6000k's in my subaru. I wish i went with 6k for the ranger now though.
