At the very minimum I would do a 2/3 drop with the 17s. The 2/3 drop won't decrease your load carrying capacity,will make the truck handle better,and will lower your centre of gravity,which in the winter with 2wd, is WAY better. Plus the wheels won't look rediculous either. I would put a slightly lower profile tire on it because big balloon all season tires suck for performance and handling.

I'm all for lowered trucks...had my old Mazda in Minitruckin Magazine last year. 2wd = slam it. 4wd = jack it.

Stock sucks.

Green Mazda,3rd one down.

I'm in Fort McMurray, Alberta. Tons of snow and ice and freakin' cold up here. 2wd is useless up here, especially a 2wd ranger. NEED 4x4.

umm "5.0" is a 302 cubic inch motor....."4.6" is a 281 cubic inch motor....big difference. And yes a 4.6 is BIGGER in overal motor SIZE....and they are not the same motor....block is different, heads are different, and 4.6 is SOHC...the cobra version is a DOHC.....alot different than a standard 5.0

I like it. I think it would look even more killer if you put on an 06+ Sport grille with the stripes

Chris, it's called eBay man, or bake your own and DIY. Headlights are the same for 2001-2009.

As for the "Boss" stripe, someone will have to do a PS for you first. It sounds good, but as for the look? Maybe on a lowered drag truck. It would need to have the accessories to go along with it, like a race truck.

Mind you, it seems all the suto makers have that Boss look going on. People have them on any Mustang now, and Dodge has them on their Challengers too. When it's everywhere and on everything, it just loses something.
