French Ranger?

I have been making and pulling parade floats for a few years, I had posted up some pics of the cezch castle last year. This spring I worked with France again. Its always interesting navigating the city after the parade is over, but all worked out.

Can't really tell from the pics but I rolled in herculiner and went up over the fiberglass bed rails. Its pretty nice stuff. Since I already had a spray in liner I had enough to do the frame, hitch and underside of the bed too. I am happy with it so far. I also added a billet grill in the bumper finally. Need to find the foglight trim pieces next.

So is it a french ranger because the spark plugs don't fire and it only goes in reverse?

I think it would look a lot better without the body lift, and with tube bumpers.

Thanks for the compliments.

The ATZs are OK. Tread looks cool, but they are kind of loud and rough for how unagressive they are. Not bad, just not as good as BFGs or Kumhos IMO. I would not pick it for a standard sized tire, but for the 15.5 width they are a decent AT option.

Yeah, there was a pretty good turnout and a big public reception at towwnpoint park afterwards with all the NATO countries.

It was just strapped to the roofrack and bed tiedowns (I have added a few additional brackets for my kayaks) One of the french guys actually did it while I was at breakfast. I was suprised at first, but thought it was a nice touch.

It would also hide in the garage until all conflict was over and them come back if it were really french

I hear ya, its not my preference though. I like the streamlined look of the factory bumprs a lot better personally. If I end up changing it I will ditch the superlift and keep the bodylift also. I have thought about it a few times.

Yeah I don't mind the bumpers, I was just thinking that it would look better if it weren't as tall. Just figured the front bumper would interfere with tires if it were shorter.
Either way it is pretty clean!

not a huge fan of a big lift and fiberglass, the whole point of it is to keep the truck low, so i think it looks goofy on tall trucks. still looks clean though and props for havin it painted and not leaving em white haha
