New member from Western PA

I just sold my 2008 Jeep JK and picked up a 2011 Ranger XLT because Ford had an awesome promotion going. So far I like the truck but it needs some work to match the offroad expectations I had from the Jeep! I look foward to learning "all that is Ranger."

Here's a picture.



It definitely needs a lift and some BFG KM2's

Welcome to R/F

I suggest new wheels if you're gonna get a lift and tires.

Unfortunately every future modification I make to my Ranger has to be legal in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Otherwise, I catch hell at work. "Lead by example!"

Meaning that my tint could only block out 30% of the light, which isn't even worth it.

Lame sauce.

Get a doctor to write you a script for illegal tint. If you say you have sensitivity to light then it can happen. Couple of my friends did it and they haven't had any problem with police.
