Yeah they are pretty dirty but at least they are not ripped.

Well I only paid 400 for it so that's cheap, even for a parts truck. As far as the bumpers, I think they are just faded black or gray.

I'm not sure yet how involved I'm going to get. I have to Brian's truck finished up before I dive into it. I figure the cap has to go which means painting a tailgate...

Yeah I think it would clean up decent, not perfect but its a work truck...lol

Yeah I'm going to try and sell the cap and if that doesn't work I might leave it on. One problem is I don't think it will fit in my garage with it on there.

... You needed another Ranger, your driveway looked so empty with just two Rangers.
I like the color too, it matches my red topper :-)

I wonder if his wife just goes with it now, she just wakes up one morning and sees another truck in the driveway and assumes he bought it.
