Ranger Guitar Amp!!!

So any I'm wishing I could show people my passion for guitar as much as they see in my truck! Then it just hit me (5:45am) I want to be able to hook up a electric guitar to my Ranger and play through the speakers....
I dont need the loudest baddest system but was wondering what my options are...I dunno much about the truck amps and Dont want a big sub system in the back, but maybe just a amp that has the chord input i could hide under a seat. I used to just carry a crappy guitar amp and plug her in the cig lighter..but thats too tacky!

I've seen Slash do it with a VW which is unacceptable! lol
And I havn't seen this on any of the forums, but if it has help me out!! lol

what if u just get an adapter that changes guitar sized plug do normal aux sized plug and plug that into ut stereo and run it on aux mode...im sure ur stereo has a big enough amp for it to sound good....i would think...worth a shot since thos adapters are like 5 bucks or less.

why not a Line 6 Spyder, you could run it of an inverter and have sweet sound, sweet effects and the ability to stick it behind your seats, in your bed or on the hood, bring it in and out as needed.....

or just get a Pignose amp.....

or, if oyu have a extended cab like me, you could always run a VOX Valvetronix ADT-100VT off of an inverter, and stuff the amp behind the passenger seat (it barely fits)
