I have the "stripped drivers side caliper bolts" mod......trust me...it wasn't a mod I wanted!!!! LOL

Lets just say the shop will have to take those puppies off, cause I've tried. Yikes!!

As for something a little more serious....I have decals that I've never seen on any other Ranger.

Original decals in June 2003.


New decals after the accident mod May 2005.


The body shop couldn't find and decals that would match my originals, so they got the new one's for me.


Accident pic:

This was the only piece they needed....I could of got someone to make it for me, but figured a new look for the truck would be good.

Found it on the web sometime in 2004. They've discontinued the illuminated emblems.

Well, I didn't invent them but since I couldn't find anyone that made them for Rangers in August of '04, I decided to make my own rock sliders.........

I added aircraft type cargo tiedowns in the bed floor of my truck, got them out of a 727 freighter I worked on many years ago. The rails sit flush with the ridges in the bed and the rings are removable, so they don't get in the way if I'm not using them. There's a tiedown in each corner and one on each side about the middle of the wheel tub. They make securing cargo a lot easier, since the factory tiedowns are not always in the best place. May add a few more later....

I'd like to see pics of that. Souds good that they are basically flush with the bed.
