Bought a new to me Ranger

Yup, I finally took the plunge and bought a 2003 4wd Ranger, reg cab Sonic Blue. Already has clear corners on it, gray interior. I guess it has been wrecked since it has a black older style bumper on it, but I know the truck will be a lot of fun.

It already has custom wheels(needs center caps), I don't know what they are, but they'll do. Tires have absolutely no tread on them so they'll need replacing soon.

Also notice, no t-bars, Woot woot!

Plans(eventually-maybe):
-Spray in bed liner
-Paint rear bumper to match
-Replace tires
-Maybe a small drop(I know dropping a 4wd is stupid, but I couldn't pass this truck up for the price)

Let me know what you think

Still have it. I've always wanted one lifted truck and one lowered truck. I just never thought I'd lower the 4wd and have the 2wd lifted.

Are you gonna get any aftermarket rims for it? Those stockers look like crap on there. Doesnt look like to much meat on the tires either.
