13westbay's Red Ranger 2010

This is my Red 2010 Ranger, 2wd, 2.3l
currently 30k miles and my daily driver
(i drive 3 miles to work ).
Mechanically everything is bone stock,
added steps by Rocky Road Outfitters,
mudflaps by Rally Armor
( i love these they hug the body line perfectly!)
In bed toolbox by tractor supply
Just ordered S.S. bed rail guards and S.S. Tube rails for the bed, will post when I install items were M.T.O

Looking for suggestions on what to do next!
on the list already are tires an inch or two bigger with a more aggressive on-off road tread (i dont like big lug mud tires for This truck) current size is 225/70/15. Might pull the trigger on some Pathfinder Sport A/T's, open to other suggestions. Pulling rims when i get tiresand sanding/polishing them as they are aluminum and clear coat is bubbling.
next on my list are smoked wind deflectors.
Also thinking of changing the exhaust to something sportier sounding, suggestions?

The pictures do no justice, its the candy apple red ranger, and the metal flake in it is amazing after a good wash and polishing

Also on my list im doing a deep clean of the carpet and detailing the interior, the trim strip by the doors the screws are pretty rusty and was wondering if anyone knew where i could get Stainless versions of these??? They have a special washer on them, i assume to keep moisture out and to hold to trim strip better. Will post pictures to show.

A Marine supply and hardware store should have similar in stainless steel, although they won't be cheap, but I don't think there is a "cheap" boat part, lol.
Not sure you need the washer, flat head would work, or even an oval head might look nice

Sweet Ride :)

Update: Screw is a #8 x 3/4", bought 2 packs of stainless from Tractor Supply for $2 U.S., ground the old screws down on the bench grinder till i got the washer off then ground the washer just a hair so i could thred it onto the new screw, going to paint old washer black since theyre rusty and install, with a dab of marine silicone to help w water prevention. After i scrub my carpet first 😂😂
here is a pic of the original screw, one ground and the new one w the washer threaded

No rule, but for same reason you wouldn't post any other personal info like your SSI number, credit card number, phone number, email

Yeah, I'm not sure either. IMO I don't see what the issue is. I was just goofing around in paint.net.

im not going to go crazy with it, not putting a lift kit or blocks on it, just want tires an inch or two bigger just for a better look, i do mostly in town driving, and a small bit on the farm, im just doing tube rails no roll bar, as i like my toolbox and i haul kayaks, im building a hidden qi wireless phone charger for the floor console, and a custom led controller/computer, going to put LEDs under rockers and bed rails, interior under seats, dash, and that slot above the cargo net on back wall, will be posting updates as i progress, unfortunately the coil for the charger i ordered was too big, its going to go somewhere else
