Just take off a few things and its fine (rear window covers, racerback and possibly visor). I would not consider that anywhere near riced out, if anything, it would be nearing JC Whitney catalog cover model...

red neck??

'red neck' would entitle thrown together, beat to ****, looks like **** etc... not a nice clean interior.. (im talking about jp7)


and ricer does not mean custom paint and a sound system, what are you smokin?

he would consider this 'riced out' because he has some sweet *** pin striping on the tailgate, and a sound system

I see nothing riced out . . . could have wanted mods he could reverse if he ever wanted to sell or trade it in.

I agree it's not the best combination of parts, however, far from rice.

i thought ricers were lowered Japanese cars with body kits and huge spoilers. That Ranger was not very tasteful, but definitely not riced out.

Not as riced out as the one I saw and of course NO CAMERA with me dang it. Ext Cab 4x4 with a cap, cap also had a wing on it. Had cobra emblems on the fender in place of the Ranger Badges, followed up with those fake fender louver things that you see on the new Caddies, and them some big chrome DUBS I am kicking myself for not having a camera and the G/F didn't have hers with either. Oh it was black with some silver graphic down the side of the truck.

I love how people use the term "ricer".

If your trying to use that term to designate "all show and no go", then any modified exhaust without retuning the ecu to calibrate for these changes would, in my book designate it as "riced"

I doubt many of you who use this insult have actually optimized your truck/car for the parts you've put on.

Well thats thinking that everyone is trying for performance. I'm putting on a muffler for sound not for performance. Performance is the last thing on my mind.
