I would have taken off the old bumper, a double bumper just looks strange.

good looking truck though, but ya need some 32-33's!

What is the difference between that and a grill guard.

I think it turned out good.

killed the ranger this weekend went through a water hole way to fast and hydro locked the motor when i was spining about 2500 rpm. long story short i bent acouple rods and the motor sounds terrible! it still ran just fine i drove it 30 miles after the fact to get it home and it made it just fine. but now its time for a new motor :(

V8 time like everyone else said! 302 will pop right in with few mods. Definitely will want a stronger transmission, so be sure to take care of that at the same time if you can.
