Get rid of the drop-in and Line-x it.

After seeing your truck, I'm getting an 04-05 Grille. It looks really great with that bumper.

Robbie? I thought his name was Sancho. I'm confused...

Anyway - cap will probably look good, with what he's doing, as log as cap=tonneau cover (fiberglass or otherwise) and != topper. Because those look like poopy on all Rangers, but especially those that aren't lifted.

I actually like this a lot more than your 01. The work just looks so much cleaner and so does the overall appearance Rob. Looks good! Now don't do anything more to it other than a slight tint of the windows and 01-03 white edge valance. That'll honestly, REALLY set off the look. (I can't talk about tint, I've been told by millions of people to do mine already, hahah)
