New custom 06+ tails courtesy of Pedro. Excuse the crooked bumper. I also scored a butt load of led's from him too (brake lights, blinkers, bed lights, third brake light and plate lights). i'll take pics when it's dark.

Always nice to have someone close with a modded Ranger who's deciding to sell. Thats how I got my FX4 LVL 2 shifter, subs and tuner.

You should take his 06+ color matched side mirrors too

Did a few things to the truck recently...

Got a bed matt and repainted the bed liner



Got an MBRP catback exhaust



replaced the three bulbs in my dome light with cool white leds as well as my glove box





And the most major thing I had done was the body work. My rear quarter panels were rusting out so i got them redone and got my passenger side rear door completely replaced because of the severe rust damage.





There is a slight difference in the color in the back but all in all I am very happy with it.

oh yea, I'm lifting it up more! I got 2 inch aal for the rear and camber kits for the front to help with the alignment after i crank the tbars some more.

Nice build. So this is the guy Pedro shows pics of his with! lol. I dig the exhaust too. And DAMN YOU with those taillights. lol.


Yeah that Bed Armor CRAP is CRAP. It's like black paint with rubbery specs scattered about....not building up texture. I only tried it 'cause it was $30 after rebates and discounts. I covered mine up with Herculiner this summer and I'm VERY pleased with the results.

That's me alright haha. thanks I appreciate it man. Yea that bed armor sucks ***. I had to put so many coats on and spray a few layers of black spray bomb for it to last. I'm paranoid though so I also got a bed mat too. And I snagged those tails so fast it wasn't even funny. love em.

So I finally got around to installing my subwoofer. The problem was, it became much more of a project than i anticipated. So I started with a kicker 10 inch subwoofer and enclosure that was kinda big. My original vision was to somehow mount a low profile sub box to the back wall. After realizing that was a lost cause I came up with this shelf idea.


You can see here after the jump seat was taken out, the floor is exposed and isn't level. Oh and I had to cut my rear cupholder jack cover to fit the sub.


THE SHELF WAS BORN





I screwed both the amp and sub into the shelf using the brackets that they supplied.

i painted 2 cars like that one with the 97 cent ones from walmart and then the next the 3-4 doller one from walmart i was more in pressed with the 3-4 doller ones one can covered about 5times what the 97cent ones did

the ones from home depot are made in the same warehouse as rustoleum. I'll stick with those and not walmart ones.

Started my new front end project the other day with Pedro.



phase one: fit the new bumper, install new headlights and paint and install new grill. The new valence and bumper still need paint at this point but we ran out of daylight.



Phase two: Paint valence satin black with Krylon Fusion paint (3 coats), color match paint the new bumper (3 coats red, 4 coats clear).




All put back together.



had to paint my running boards because my new bumper made how faded they really were stand out lol.



All cleaned up.
