Icon7 My Photoshop Mockup

This is what I have planned for my Ranger:







OR



Paint current chrome grill-guard black
Paint stock wheels black
Add Hellas on grill-guard
Add cab-mounted light bar with 2 rectangular baja lights.
Paint fenders black/install new trim?

What do you guys think? I don't want to put too much into this guy, because he's already topped 200k miles. Not worth lifting IMO.

Opinions? Thanks!

If you went with a different style light on the roof it would look better.

that sounds like a good game plan, it will look good, but you dont have torsion bars..

"94 did not have t-bars. Why not go with 4 round light up top?

Quite sure in fact...betcha $50!
You got a Twin Traction Beam suspenion or as some say twin i beam.

Personally i'd stick more than two on the roof. Otherwise it'll look like ya got the mickey mouse edition ranger

Thanks Igobytwitch...guess I wasn't really thinking about scale :P.

Here's a different light layout:



Per Blackhawk's suggestion. Though I am partial to Mickey Mouse....lol

Thanks for educating me on that TTB. I looked it up and I'd have to say it's even more of a reason I shouldn't **** with the suspension haha.

I'd say go with what Blackhawk says with the 4. I think each time you update the picture it looks better

i think if the flares were painted white to match the truck it would look awesome.

Everything else looks good.

I think your second pic looks pretty good. Not a fan of the painted wheels though.

Ditch the bud shield
Add 4 round light(like on the push bar)to the roof
Upgrade to Edge style mirrors.

@Trigger:

Haha couldn't photoshop that bug shield out. I'm prolly gonna yank it off when I get the whole thing done.
I like the baja-style lights a lot better than the rounded ones...just a personal preference. But I see your point.
Why? You don't like my inspection-passing screwed-on ninteen eighty something F150 mirror?

Black stock wheels look pretty good on a white truck, at least I liked mine when I had a white truck. You may also want to consider painting the grill white as well, that can look pretty cool too.

black on white is the way to go and paint your bumper or get a black one to keep the theme up

Clean up (re-paint/re-chrome) the front bumper. Get rid of the "brownish" bug-shield, get a dark black one or get rid of it entirely. And get new mirrors. You'd be golden.
