My Truck after mods

I know i said i would get pictures sooner on my last post but i have been busy, anyways here it is. Its a little dirty but i think it turned out really cool, really fun desert/pasture truck haha. The next project for it will be a skid plate and probably a baja bumper i really dont wanna fab them myself so if anyone has a skid plate or baja bumper for sale let me know. I may put some KC lights on top of the headache rack, not sure though. Yes, i will put the center caps on i just havent had the money or the time to get them.

P.S. For anyone looking to put bigger tires on a stock height 2.3L ranger do not worry about the motor turning the meats i have 30x9.5 and the truck does great with them, i hauled 2 bikes and gear to the mx track the other day on the highway it is a 4th gear ride now but no biggie.

Leaves your radiator exposed as it is now. Having a stock skid plate would even look a lot better.

Looks like alot more rad or ac condenser showing than when I did mine...I'd do some sort of skid plate...but I had no problems with mine without a valence...of course...i'm alot taller stock than you..

but the truck sure has come a long way since we last saw it...i beleive you just got hte new wheels and tires?

Looks great man.

Leave the valence off.....it's cooler that way!

Yes sir, i got the wheels last christmas and never had the money to get the tires so for graduation my dad bought me the set of tires and i have modded since then. Heres what it started out like, dont laugh lol




Btw hopefully its cool to run no front plate cause i cut the mount off it looked stupid, worse case i can put it in the window on the dash.

It looks good, you should get the black headlights and corners..it tends to look good on the gold rangers.
