Not really a fan. I think it could look a lot nicer for $3k spent.

I like the stance of it. Maybe needs to be a touch lower with those wheels. Front end kills it though. It at the very least needs some clear corners or something.

Old article. I think that was in the magazine almost three years ago. Probably have it around here somewhere.

They should have consulted with one of the ranger forums, and they would have had a killer truck for 7 grand.

I have about 4500-5k invested in my ranger and it looks 10 billion times better. Mine you a fair portion of that amount was normal repairs for a 200k+ mile truck.

Edit: That includes the $2200 I paid for the truck.
