Icon3 What now?

This is my 2005 Ranger Edge 3.0 V6. Its stock as far as mechanical goes, but I've built a great stereo system with it and I'm trying to thing of what to do next. I've thought about redoing the exhaust, but I don't really have the money to get a kit necessarily. I've also thought about getting some concert PA speakers with 15" woofers and putting them in the bed, but I'm not too sure. I have redone the rims myself and put bigger tires on it, so it seems slightly lifted. I've also thought about putting a winch on it since its only a 2WD but I've only gotten it stuck once so far.
I'm open to hear anybody's ideas for it next!
Thanks

I would sell the side steps and the cap, and buy something like a body lift if your looking for some height. I like the rims, they look great on the truck. Start with maintenance stuff, im sure a tune up with plugs, wires, and fluid flushes wont hurt it, and will make it that much nicer to drive.

you could do 06+ mirror swaps, a grill swap, theres a few options. But dont go for things that are performance "improving". most are a waste, my truck is near stock engine wise and runs great with good MPG.

And save your cash, I am a prime example of how mods get out of hand and cost you a crap load of cash! lol

Yeah, I've been thinking of getting rid of the cap and getting a tool box, but dang, its expensive. I'll probably make a project box using wood and covering it with the diamond plate off an old full size box I have that's got the side messed up.
As for maintenance, It did sit under a car cover for like 3 Years before I got it, but hey, I've had it for 3 years and when I first got it, the thing only had 9k miles on it and now I'm at 25k
