Icon10 What would you do?

I have a 2005 Ranger STX. Completely stock. 38,000 thousand miles. The only upgrade is after market stereo and subs in the cab.

IDEAS ?!?!?

Wheels/tires and a window tint. Those alone IMO, make a huge visual impact. Meh, a starting point. There are so many little mods you can do. Check the how-to's. You Wont regret it!

non stock HID's are illegal in some states such as NY.

you could do the blinker mod which is on the cheap side, makes your corner light alternat with your blinker...

tint is always cool... Id go with 50% on the front and 5% of the back... 20% is nice but, from a distance doesnt offer much privacy...

Paint your headlights black...
there are ways to make ALL your body lines batch up and look good... one way is to add gutters, yes, house hutters to your cab, so that the front end matches the body... this does indeed work, however matching the paint could be a problem...
