What to do, what to do....

Click on the link below in my sig to see my truck, as of today...

Other than an Edge bumper and Valence, Lund rollpan, perhaps a hard tonneau cover and maybe step bars.....what else should be considered?

I have a few little things coming too, like v6 chrome emblems, chrome shift ****, and Ranger seat covers.

What would you add, both mechanical and cosmetic? I've seen a lot of beautiful trucks here, so getting your opinion would be of great value to me.

I've hit the wall for ideas, all I want is to make it cool, and make it different than just any Ranger you would see, but not ricey.. :D

If you're doing stpe bars, I would say a lift and wheels. With a lift, I would leave the bumper instead of a rollpan. Just my opinion.

Suspension alterations and wheels will really set the look of a truck off. No matter which way you go or what wheel/tire combo you do.

if that were my truck, i would first do some things to add a little more go that that 4 banger...

then i would bag it and put it on as big of wheels as i could tuck... or drop it as low as i could go and run 18's...

then a tonneau cover...

then i would get it tinted super dark and get to working on the interior... stereo, accents, dvd player, white gauges, etc...

then i would do an edge conversion and a rollpan and get a new paint job...

and somewhere in there i would add an alarm...

and if you wanna do some kinda theme, ie: chrome and white, black and white, etc... that always seems cool...

edit:

and clear corners and smoked third brake light and smoked taillights...

i could be like everyone else and say lower the ******....however you live in canada and if yours is a Daily Driver, you will have a hell of a time in the winter... But if you like the look of lowered rangers, go for it! hell, i plan to have a bagged DD, even in the winter, but thats cause im crazy....

but defienetly find a suspension mod, lower it, lift it, do something! make it stand out more

Well, I definitely will NOT lower it, simply for the reason you just mentioned, but, upgrading the shocks, suspension as well as new rubber and wheels will help.

Bad part is my new job I will be starting in a few weeks will put 3-4 times more miles that I put on her now. So at being 30,000 k's a year just commuting will perhaps limit the amount of mods I do, and more focus on getting a new truck within a year or two.
