A Couple New Things

I had some extra money after selling some things so I got some stuff for the Ranger

First I did the Airbox and Throttle Cable mod and dropped in a K&N


Next I added a Ventshade Bugflector


Then a 13" Antenna


A Plastic Bedliner


Snap-On Soft Tonneau


Finished!

Don't you love those MA inspection stickers they fade in like 2 seconds.
Did you paint your truck recently because your engine bay is yellow

But your truck is coming along nicely

O and for the record when things say that it is not supposed to be installed with over-the-rail bedliners, it doesn't mean it's impossible it just means it's gonna be a pain in the ***!

Looks good. You should ditch those hubcaps and maybe paint your wheels. It'll look a lot better then.

I thought about it but there's a lot of surface rust and crap on those wheels that I don't know if it will be worth it. I might try at some point though

New tires are coming soon and I couldn't afford both, so it was a lesser of 2 evils thing. Good tires and crappy rims or RT/S tires and good rims, I decided tires were more important.

BOOM!





BFG All-Terrains 31x10.5x15 on 15x8 Rock Crawlers, sorry for the pics it was raining pretty good.

One rubbed a little on the front drivers side, but a little trimming and now they're great! I love the look and ride now, it's a big step up from stock 215/75/15 on 15x6 wheels.
