I think it looks amazing Zach. The non-painted tailgate, edge bumper, and fender flares really give it a nice touch. Can't wait to see your dune pics.

I really can't put into words how much I love it now. It is like the Heidi Klum of rangers. I can't wait to see it with everything finished. When I close my eyes and picture my dream ranger your truck shows up. Haha

I know you are just argueing to argue now, because with a leaf srping suspension, your idea isnt solid...

theres many flaws in your theory and comparisons but I dont really care to try to explain with you because if I say black you clearly want to say white just to disagree with me.
Girls... you're both ugly.

Gil, that's a sh!tty 'tude to have, but I'll be out to your neck of the woods one day and take you up on your offer - gotta show up them Heeps with a Ranger!
