I'd love to have a push bar for my truck. I think if I ever get the cash to SL it I'm going to put one on. Thanks man!

Okay, so I painted the grill black, and threw my ford emblem back on the front. I'd have to say it looks pretty nasty. I'm loving it. Thanks for the input guys, and I'll post some pics up maybe tomorrow, as I'm currently using my BB tour. Maybe tool box next? We'll see.

Don't know if anybody suggested it, but I would ditch the side marker light covers or nightshaded or whatever you have and go with clear, black corners... the corners are too black.

I think I may just get a set of the newer style corner markers... Mine were clear, but I hated the white sealant they used to seal the lens, so I tinted them. Lol. But, that is another great place to start. Thanks for the input man!



So I snapped a few pictures and heres what I got so far. Whacha think about the grill?

I really like the grille. It's a good lookin truck. Only question I have is about the tires...why do they appear to be pushed out from the truck? As if the axle is wider than normal. Not sure if that's how you wanted it to be or you just have wide tires, just got me curious.

two tone it, your valance is black and i think if you did that it would tie it all real nice! maybe use herculiner or somthing comprible. also maybe getr your box powder coated/painted black. i think that would look kick ***....

Oh ok. Now, I have 31x10 tires that don't look like that. Does that mean my rims are 10" wide also? On the tire it is printed 31x10.50 R15 LT109R. I know the first number is the tire size, and R15 is the wheel size, do you know what all the rest is?

I have 15x10's with 33x12.5's. They stick out a little farther that most people's with the same setup because the rims have a 60mm offset.

Two tone... That sounds like a pretty sweet idea. I may actually look into something like that.

cchsbuzz19, I'm looking into getting some 06+ corners. Lol.

Tool box may get done this week. Anyone ever used "adhesive" paint? Or something like that.... Basically it suppose to help paint stick better to things such as aluminum...

I wish my skills were half this good! Haha, thanks for the attempt at least! I 'm really going to have to look into this..

I also thought about taking the bed liner out and Rhino Lining it or something.. So any ideas!

Definitely do the bed liner on the bottom of the truck

On a side note, is it just me or is your ford emblem not in the middle of the grill?

Yeah I'm definitely liking the two tone idea.. And yeah its centered... if you mean from left to right...as far as up and down goes.... Well....

Also, Braincandie, I've seen that before too.. I'd have to see it on a lifted Ranger first though. Lol.

Good idea! I had some before, but after I put the billet in I wanted to clean it up a little... Maybe I'll put em back in....

Bigandrw, If you wouldn't mind doing that I'd appreciate it. I've been curious as to how well that Herculiner stuff works. Thanks man!

Also, Where the liner i have comes over the bedside a little, it's rubbed the paint off past buffing.. So what if i kept the same line with a bed liner? Like covered the top of the bed rails with a "do it yourself" paint liner? Any one ever seen that before? Or have it done?
