that truck is full of fail. those flares would work if the tires were wider and not street tires, those tails, those stupid looking rims and some steps that match the truck would help.

hahahaha! Believe it or not, I already saved the pics of an old ad for that truck! I added it to my "craigslist truck oddity" folder. aka WTF? Ranger folder. lol.


I'm tempted to call 'em up and see if they wanna trade beds!


Believe it or not, I see quite a few steppies with flares. Even a couple in town.

haha....yeah. I've been sorta toying with the idea of talking to used dealerships with black steppies for a little bed/bumper trade. If anything, it's an advantage on their side because his bed is line-x'd and not tiny as ****! lol.

I never know if he's gonna toss the steppie on it or what! lol. He's pulling a John Kerry!

Wow thats fugly.

I tried the other day asking if I could trade my bumper and valence for a bumper and valence with foglights(the truck didn't even have the button or wiring for them) at a used car dealership, I thought he would say yes for sure, but he says it gives the buyer the option to get them and it looks nicer...GAY
