Fordrangers ranger build

I shoulda started a build thread a long time ago , but I strayed away from modding the truck for a while, and now going to go back at it. I got tired of have pitch black windows in the front so i ordered a pre cut tint kit, and redid all of my windows 5% on the back windows 20% on the front windows. Also have a roll pan in the mail for it.

pretty much right on I had to trim a little off the front windows for a perfect fit for me but I would recomend them for the money if you know how to tint you just can't beat it.

Mind if I ask where you got the pre-cut tint?

I've been wanting to re-do mine for years... the cheap stuff I used is turning blue but at least nobody can see inside

I'd like to do 20% all the way around again.

are you gona keep that pod black or paint it too match?

i love your truck. it's not overly done. the right height, hood, wheels/wheel size and the colour pulls it together nicely.
