Icon6 Picture Day

I installed my new rear bumper, and I took the truck out for pictures. What do yall think for a 97 with 190,000 miles?

Clean lookin truck. IMO loose that chrome front bumper, and get some wider meats in the back, but other than that looks great

Agreed.


I think your truck looks really good. Don't listen to him man.


Edit: Just for reference your truck looks really similar to the Ford Ranger Thunderbolt which is totally "ricer"

yeah that ranger has a little too much. like you guys said lowering it will be just enough. a little spoiler, and hood scoop just seems like a waste of time. I hate cars that have random stuff that they dont need like a hood scoop on a stock 4 cyl. but ill lower it. i might just lower the rear end to make it sit even.

Very sharp...

Was it lowered in the front? I had the same idea... "make it a stand out"! I get thumbs up with the summer rims on. Its like a hobby...you got to stay interested...I want to have it look good with out even trying....

I personally don't care for those skirts or anything else for that matter. Just looks out of place. Those odd shaped curves look weird. Just my opinion, though.

i like it but if the rear was lowered 2-3 inches it would look even better. dont go back to your stock rear bumper get a new hitch

It's the stock lift it came with. It's for towing, so the rear end levels with the front when I pull heavy stuff
