what i got

hey guys my name is cory and im 17 years old. i am from findlay ohio and i drive a 1994 ford ranger splash 4x4. its got the 4.0 V6 with a 5-speed and about 133k on it but still running strong. i currently have a 6" BDS suspension lift on it with 15" procomp wheels and 31x10.5 BFGoodrich all terrains..only change i plan on making to it at the moment is the wheels. i found some that i like a little better then the ones i have on it now so my dad is goin to buy mine. the euro lights are no longer on the ranger. took them off a long time ago feel free to comment on the truck good or bad. both give me an idea of where i stand and will only help me to learn...thanks guys!

33's and paint it a different color.

It looks great, though.

bigger tires is what im working on with new rims as well and the paint i have been thinking about because it has its rough spots like on the wheel well if you look closely. its a fiberglass bed so a chunk broke off.. and ill get back to you on wheels

Looks pretty good, but you really need 33's. I'd also change to clear roof lights. I've seen them on a few Super Dutys and they look good.

Truck looks good, maybe some bigger tires and you'll be set. For exhaust I would recommend magnaflow.

You do not want to punch through your cats if anything take them off punching through them robs your engine of power. Think of it this way you have just made a spot for the hot exhaust gases to expand and cool down in such slowing down. Pluss i don't know about your aera but down here scrap yards are offering 120+ for ranger cats with the honey comb still intact!

Btw op you have a nice truck bigger tires are my only sugestion.
