Ranger Facelift... (pic)

So today I was killin some time with a buddy of mine and we found a nice lil wheelin spot... well there was a hole you see... but neither one of us new how deep it was... so I decided to man up and go for it!
Turns out it was pretty deep and I came out of the hole with my PA speaker hanging from its last remaining wire and my bumper bracket on the passenger side BROKE! so we got the tool set out and just said to hell with the bumper

This gives me an excuse to get that pre runner bumper Ive been thinkin about!

I think it looks good if you keep the bumper on. I like Goodygotacuda old ranger's prerunner bumper setup.
