I will say the purple would look awesome with those first white wheels (left white IMO, but to each his own)

Also just FYI Honda = Acura... same company.. in fact in Japan, it is the Honda Integra. Also the Acura "RSX" is actually the latest Japanese Integra

a good paint like that with the body work (cus no ones is perfect) is gonna be worth more than your truck...at this point. now im not nay saying this, but think you should do what it is estetically first, like a drop wheels and what not. not do it paint first. crap happenes when your doing stuff. i would wait.

I it'd look good with that purple color you posted, and with the black wheel you posted. def. lowered to like a 2/3 drop to. If you painted the lip of the wheels the color of the truck it would look sick. If your going this route forget about converting it to 4wd. With the amount that paint job would cost it would be foolish to drive around in that in the snow or mud with it. Just my opinion. Thought I'd share.

I would check out the Purple that some F150's had in the mid 90's. I always thought that was a very nice color and really popped in the sun. As for painting the truck, ever consider doing it yourself?

I gave it a try, but they didn't turn out to good.

Blue looks best in my opinion.

I couldn't do it right in the picture, but I think the purple you're talking about would like cool if done right.

that's the thing
You got a 2wd now? I suggest not putting a flashy paintjob on it if you are going to convert it to 4wd...Buy another ranger for a 4wd and keep the 2wd a clean looking street machine.

At least do a 2/3 drop, buy some lowering coils and a flip kit

well if u use your truck as a truck than that pretty paint job may not be worth the money! idk about you guys but i enjoy the toughness of the rangers and push it pretty hard so you can imagine the dings and scratches that come with that.
