lol im tryin to find the rest of the stx bodykit if there is one. it would look much better with the side skirts on it so the bumper doesnt hang so far below the rest of the body. as for wheels im trying to decide between two different ones but they will be 18s. im gonna replace the stock am/fm radio with an aftermarket stereo i picked out before i bought the truck and put some more durable speakers in it and maybe a sub. ill also most likely put a cold air intake on it and a throatier sounding muffler for a lil extra power. possibly a power programmer as well. i dont want to go too overboard on it so i can still get some traction on the snow in the winter.

Welcome and nice looking truck. Do some searching on Ranger Thunderbolts... I think they had sort of side skirts and stuff. They may look good with the STX bumper cover!

got both doors tightened up and finally received and installed the bak industries bakflip tonnue cover i ordered for it. it looks and work pretty good. i wheels i posted before it turns out wont work since the back spacing is too high so im looking for something else that will pique my interest for the truck. heres what the tonnue cover looks like on the truck

To be honest, I do not know the correct terminology for the Mazda bed. Nice truck man, you should consider a mild drop on it. I think it would look great leveled out. It is all a process.

thanks but im more into the raked look than the leveled out look. if i haul anything with it leveled out it will make it look like its sagging and i hate that look lol. for now im gonna leave it the height it is since the area i live in gets a decent amount of snow and the streets here can be a bit steep so i dont want to accidently take a chunk out of my bumper cover from a hard packed chunk of ice or snow or by dragging the nose when i enter a steep street or by entering my driveway since the first half of it is a bit steep

i just ordered the wheels and tires today so im waiting for those to come in so i can at least see what they will look like on it before winter gets here. i called about the Konig Unkwowns that i found for it and for some reason the site i found them on said they would fit on the truck eventhough the backspacing is too large so i found some different ones and ordered those. ill post pics when i get them put on
