I hear ya on the toreador red thing ... I never really cared for it. I came from a black ranger also and I LOVE black rangers. But now I love the toreador.
I love the way this red shines up and contrasts nicely with black, I couldn't think of another color ranger that I would want.

Only thing I don't like about this color is that it starts to look pink if you don't keep it cleaned and waxed. I think thats why I never noticed it before. because I never seen it taken care of and clean.

LMAO!!! Damn ben!! it's almost like you just had your truck painted red by those two pics!!! Looks awsome man and yes i would rock 32's!! I've done a few BL's on 2wd's that put 31's and 32's on and they looked fine!! I do admit too though that the 33's fill it out a lil more but not that much to really tell a difference!!

yeah same here. mine is hardly every dirty ( I usually clean it up right after I go off roading) but it has been raining every week so far here and coal trucks equal very dirty cars and trucks cause of the coal dust and what not. but this color is sweet when it's all cleaned up.

Very nice truck! Just one question what did you do to alter the brackets that hold on the step sides and more importantly the grille guard? Pictures would help a ton!

the step bars actually bolt to the bottom of the cab so nothing needed there, and he just had some drop brackets made i assume on the front grille guard...not too hard!!

Being the noob that I am with practically no welding/fabrication skills I need something to work off of to make a set of drop brackets. Also are those drop brackets typically used in conjunction with the standard mounting brackets? Sorry if I sound completly incompetant.

i don't think we modded the brackets at all for the grill guard.

Ben said he wanted to later on to make it a little closer to the grill, but other than that it bolted right up with no problems

Again pardon my ignorance, but with a 3in lift and the guard mounted to the frame (correct?) it still lined up pretty nice? If thats the case was the bracket that came with the guard adjustable at all.

Also I might aswell throw this one out there...I found a grille guard I want but it "only fits" 2001-2009 rangers. I still want the guard so would it be out of the question to try and mod it close enough so that it will work with my truck/and a 3in BL?

(I should try opening a thread not under snapshots haha...thanks for your help though)

I believe the grill guard mounts to the bumper mounts, so it would move up with the bumper relocating brackets that come with the kit, so it would still be lined up. Correct me if I'm wrong though....

Yes. You have to mod the brackets. You just drill a 1/2 inch hole 2.5-3 inches below the origional frame hole mounts. In the "L" mounts. Then just trim some off the back side of the brackets I'll snap some pics. Takes about 30 minutes to an hour.
