Project Rescue Ranger

i've been working at my truck for a bit now but i guess i should post up from the start on what i did. nothing special. just lots and lots of lil stuff that really seperates a ranger apart from the rest.

I like what you did with the light controls. The center console is a good place for them.

been a bit since i updated this. i was deployed for 6 months so i wasnt doing anything. while i was away i bought the manual hub conversion. i did the nicer mirror swap instead of the flag style mirrors that it came with. new headlights. my old ones were beyond scratched and gouged. but here is some pics as she is for now. looks way better than it did when i left. i also canned my entire strobe lighting system due to malfunction and hassles with wiring and went with a super bright dash light from etd. sutable for what i do on the road. gonna get another for the back window and leave it at that.

They have served me well. Right now I have whelen LEDs in the side windows, a traffic director on the back of the rack, hide a ways in the tails a d12 dash light in the windshield and e6s in the grill. Plus my whelen siren/pa is from strobes n more. They have been great to deal with as its all primary warning compliant.
