Loving the new Ranger!

Hey guys I have had the truck for about 2 months and figured it was about time I posted.

First of all, I love the truck and I can't wait til I pay for it so I can mod it some more.

So far I did somewhat of a poor man's lift cranking the T-bars and adding a leaf out back and I think it gives the truck a pretty good stance. Eventually I want to go with a 3" BL and some nice 33"s.

Feel free to give me some suggestions and what not!

Pic of truck as of today (sorry crappy cell quality):

truck looks good, and there nothing wrong with cranking t-bars and aal for lift, espeacially when you dont have the money for major mods.

Yeah I was considering blacking it out. Definitely nightshading the tails but Illinois can be pretty strict on their tint laws so... don't know about that yet.

I agree. Tint, 06 corners, and CLEAN THOSE WHEELS. Other than that, don't do anything. Blacking out trucks is now over rated. Lol

Yeah I clean those front wheels quite often haha. I drive a long way to work and back everyday and they really love the brake dust.
