New Ranger... Ideas?

Hi everyone! This is my first and new ranger. Its a 1998 3.0 4x4 manual. Im looking for some ideas for it. First one i'm doing is repainting the grill and bumper to black. Anything else helps, Thanks !

Well at least you have a manual transmission...and a 4x4(so envious right now)...but I've seen some with a light lift kit n looked really good. Nuthing to outrageous is what I like but hay everyone has their own taste. Really depends on what your looking for me I want to drop a v8 in mine but not the 5.0 swap more of a super sleeper if you will. Now tthen what do you want the truck to do go off road, rally, or just climb up a wall that's up to your wallet.

Well shes changed a lot since I last posted this. I have done the front end conversion on it, which I like the look of much better. I gutted the whole interior and cleaned the seats and replaced the carpet. Then I did a temporary plasti dip job to my wheels while I wait and save up for new wheels and tires. Still unsure if I want to lift it 4 inches which is the only lift I can find besides and leveling key kit. To top it off got rid of the stock clutch (155k) and put a new one in and it is so much better to drive. All in all its all coming together.

NICE VERY nice indeed, I like the way it looks but as for the tires light A/T would look great as it sits good job.
