Andrew, I really appreciate the pics. I think if I decide to do it maybe I'll try to do my bed first. I like that look a lot! Plus, it doesn't tear your paint up, and look like sh:*. Lol. How long did it take you to do it?

Do you have stock wheels? If so you have 15x7 wheels. Not sure what that other stuff means.

@bdav55.....31x10.50x15 meaning its roughly 31 inches from ground up fully inflated 10.50 is the tread width like for instance when you look at the front of your truck and see how wide your tires are..ya that's 10.50 and 15 is just the rim. Hope that clears it up

Some Z-71 badges would be sweet!

jk man, clean truck.. I don't like the night shade front turn signals though, never have on rangers, I just think it looks bad because you cant shade the headlights..

I vote new wheels, something less ordinary, but you don't wanna spend a lot of cash so thats out of the question.



Maybe some strobes? I'm about to order a Whelen 90w strobe kit for my truck. This is the cheapest I've found it..

the middle number confuses lots of people. lol. its not just width. it's determined by height and width and is really more a measurement of how much sidewall there is(from wheel to top of tread)

also the first number isnt necessarily just height. a mustang can take a 285/30/17 on the rear but compare that to a 285/70/17 on a truck. tell me whats bigger lol.
