My X-mas present to my ranger

after my parents have bought all of my other gifts and what not, they said i have $150 left over that i can spend. but i dont have a clue what to get.

heres what i thought:

1. vvme.com H.I.D. bi-xenon kit,
2. along with the hid's, i will get black headlight housings,
3. ebay projectors (i think they're around $170:/),
4. edge front valance with fogs,
5. newer ranger 4x4 sport bolt-on (look) flares

I really dont know what i want to get, so please help me out and give me your opinions, thanks!

I'd go with the fender flares even though your only half way there, I'd keep saving and get those

You can do the headlight mod yourself and save $$. Hids will run you about $50 depending what you want and where your buying them. I'd do hids and valence with fogs.

If you get HID's get them from www.ddmtuning.com they by far have the best you can get!

Ive heard bad things about ddm, i dont have a foglight valence, i have the 2001 2wd with the square-ish holes...would f350 fogs fit in there? :)

I thought about modding my headlights, but after i did the corners and warped one by just using a blow dryer, i would rather not haha and i wanna keep them as a spare set

you should be able to get one piece headlights on ebay for close to that if you find some that look good enough.

I have DDM Hid's in both my motorcycle and car..which are now in the fogs of my truck and they work great. I know some people are having a hard time getting the Hi/low kits to work well but otherwise I hear great things about DDM. Just my .02..

Ummmmm no lol


I mean you could do some measurements and the fog might "fit" but there won't be anyway to mount them up.
