it could actually be already painted with flat clear instead of glossy for the "rat rod" look. the green pinstripe is a nice touch.
to me, this is like someone with a superlifted truck. this is a superlowered one. you hate it or love it.
not a hater

Technically that would be Satin Black. I think that truck looks awesome. I have alot of respect for the amount of work that goes into getting a Ranger to lay like that. That thing is probably 4-linked in the rear and running custom control arms up front, and to actually get the body all the way down, he's had to do a body drop, which is way harder than a body lift. to do a body drop, you have to cut and re weld just about every panel on the truck. I personally wouldn't lay my truck out like that, at least not while I still need it to be a truck, but mad props to that guy for all that work.

Needs to find another bumper agreed.

I bet if you look at it from the front all you see is bumper hanging over the sides.

i agree with you.

thorny, i realize that it's bagged and has more clearance then i know, but i just don't see the practicality of that. myself, i'd go for a mild drop and call it a day. none of that body drop stuff. maybe a 5/7 or if i did get bags, it wouldn't get dumped that much. i also realize that the owner probabbly doesn't drive it that low and has two heights. drive height and show height. i just don't see the point in haiving it parked that low.

it is a very nice truck and like previously posted, alot of hard work went into getting it there and i respect that. i'm just a function over form kinda guy. the owner of that seems to be the opposite. no hate from this end.

very nice truck love the reactions of some of the people on this forum when they see a lowered ranger or bagged ranger and wonder how the hell they can offroad a truck like that.

Definitely a nice truck but hes prob just running djm arms but all rangers get that much camber unless they swap to a toyota clip or m2.

I definitely love some people who are making fun of the truck when they are only running stock suspension or only a bodylift.

I wouldn't own it, but I think it is pretty sweet.

just cause you wouldn't do it to your truck doesn't mean you should rag on the guy for something he likes.

lowered or lifted, if it is done right then it will look good.

i hope you guys don't think that i'm ragging on his truck. it is a nice truck. i just feel it's too low. i like the satin black, pinstipes, bumper swap, even the rims are decent. also like i said, i respect that owner for putting that much work into a truck. he/her should feel proud to drive a truck that nice around.
