Need direction ideas for my truck

Okay guy, so my truck has been slowly but surely making its way back to stock, and not intentionally. Mostly because of either A. function, or B. selling stuff cause Ive been broke.

As of this summer my truck had made it to this point:

As the recession hit, and I had less work, I began to mow lawns, so naturally I sold my camper and brand new roof rack, for the cash, and a partial trade for the spray in bedliner, so I could haul the lawn equipment with ease. At the same time, my rims were pissing me off with the chrome peeling, and so I decided to paint my rims, for lack of funds to powder coat.

Recently, I have traded my buckets and CC for 60/40s to Edgeman4.0, as I have more need for passenger space, and always travel with my beagle now, who rides in the middle.

Yesterday I sold my sub, amp, and custom box to blueranger for emergency cash/to put my extra jumper seat back in.

Here it is more recently:

So as you can see its taking a different direction, however due to lack of funds, and time it has been neglected, and I even took a hiatus from R-F because it made me sick thinking about what I wish my truck was like, but couldn't do anything about it.

Im thinking I want 32's, maybe crank my bars and get some more lift up front. I want some bushwacker red rail covers, and some black powder coated bed rails.

I would like a tool chest that sit IN the bed not ON the bed, but havnt found one that fits the ranger. You know a diamond plate one that sits on the floor, but comes up flush with the bed rails.

Either this^^^ or get a tonneau

I have plenty of ideas for interior, including new subs/enclosures, OHC, components and tweeters, etc.

Would love to do the head light mod, might tackle that over break.

Thoughts ideas? I kind of like the all black on black look so far.

Needing inspiration!
