orange ranger

here is my truck bought it stock nov of 2008.
2000 ford ranger xlt 4x4
4.0l
4spd auto
about two weeks ago i installed a 3`` body lift. the truck is now running on 33x12.5 km2`s mounted on 15x10 steel wheels.
Interior JVC deck and a clarion sub. as well as an old radio shack cb

there should be much more too come on this truck purchased jdm2 model 3 tube bender so after holidays i will get too work on front and rear bumpers as well as sliders

suspension is stock right now with fx4 bilsein shocks but i am planning on coilover swap up front with add a leaf and schakles in rear. also considering front fiberglass fenders

any ideas let me know

Looks good!
Fiberglass fenders for what? 35's or something? I don't see any reason to run them unless you are having rubbing problems or wanting to stuff bigger tires under there.
I'm also not sure what the add-a-leafs and shackles would be for unless you want some serious rake.
I think you should swap the stereo around so it is on top, and the pocket on the bottom. I always thought they always looked better that way anyway. Also some window tint and clear corners would look real good!

inputs great as for fenders tires rub how they r now ill probably go a 3" flare.
as for add a leaf and schackles im hoping i can get a little more hight when i do the coilover swap but i wont consider schackles or add a leaf until coilovers r in

thanks for advice guys keep it comin new grill would be sweet as for bumpers im going tube front and rear
