Icon7 Totally stock...

I am looking for some starter mods.. its a 2001 edge, I tightened the t-bar crank about 3/4s the way and have Firestone Destination a/t p245/75r/16 which came with the vehicle.. I read a bunch of posts on alot of mods.. I am sure there are other easy mods that I can do myself without spending a bunch of $$$? Nothing else has been changed on the truck except a ac/dc converter hardwired and stashed under the seat. Any suggestions are welcome.. I live in Southern CA and bought the truck to haul my Four wheeler around. No real crazy climbing just some off road fun (so far)...

First off Welcome. After cranking the T-bars, you need to get a front end alignment. Go look around the 'How-To' section there is tons of cheap/ free stuff in there. Blinker mod, Airbox mod etc...

when i first got my 2001, i thought the same thing: "i'll just do some cheap mods, nothing expensive." well, after 6 years+ and nearly $5,000 worth of mods later...
new tires,(265's) wheels (twice) dual cat back sysem, bedliner, bug shield, roll bar, 7 hella 500's, fabtech tire carrier, sunvisor, grill guard, classIII receiver, torsion crank (free) fog lamp upgrade to 9005's.
here at ranger-forums, it's tough to keep a ranger stock for very long!

Start by painting the interior the same color as the truck. like the radio bezel, door handles, intake cover, dome light swap/paint
2 cans of krylon fusion and can of clear coat is about 10 bucks
