Icon4 New Ranger Owner

Whats up everybody, I'm a new Ranger owner. Proud owner of a 1984 F-150 aswell lol. I'm just trying to piece some info together and get some ideas of what to do and where to find some things. I have a 2001 Ranger XL Flareside. I want to get some tints, or maybe just get different colored lights? A bull bar, or full bambie basher? I was also looking for a role bar with some lights but i couldnt find anything decent. Is it worth getting any type of exhaust system? Magnaflow? Not sure if I want an annoying bumble bee around.. BFG's? How big of a lift is too big? Or what looks good on a ranger? 3"? Any help or suggestions on what yall like or have done, please let me know! Only owned it about a week, not even. Lets hear it!

Welcome. I would say to statt off with a 3 inch body lift, easy and cheap. As for exhaust go with magnaflow, sounds nice and deep at low rpms.

Thank you all! Sometimes when I go from park to drive, it sputters a little bit. and sometimes when im stopped at a light or sign, the same thing happens. Is it just the tranny? does the fluid need to be changed? thanks!
