Patriotic Truck?

I have a 1996 Ford Ranger XLT and bought a set of red white and blue LED's. Im not sure where to put them on the truck, any ideas?

I was also thinking about painting to body stars and stripes. Stars with a blue base on the front back to the door panels, and red/white stripes to the back.

The Justice Friends. technically a part of Dexter's laboratory rather than a standalone show.

Man that brings back some memory's. Good times good times. Red and blue lights are a BIG no no btw. Use them on the inside only and even then i would not turn them on while driving...

I've thought about a good looking flag on the tail gate, something modern, kinda splash like painted flag on there, but never did it. I'll just stick with the american flag decals on the sleds and toolbox

Flag painted on the truck is a bad photoshop..

You can tell by looking at the fenders and the wheel wells..
