I'd say but some bigger tires on for sure. Who's Ranger is that behind yours? Looks like it could use some bigger meats too

Wish the weather was like that here. 8 inches of snow on the ground right now...

If you're trying to keep it stock, whyd you lift it? You can still DD it fine with some 32's or 33's on there!

Overall though, not bad. I'd do something about that front bumper/valence. Just looks off...almost home made. And those tow hooks on there can't be functional since I assume they aren't bolted to the frame.

I'd also

all i did was crank the t-bars for some clearence, as well as the blocks in the rear. and i am going to 33's when these wear, why buy new tires when these work fine
plus i got the 3 slow so it likes 30's better

and all the tow hook is there for is slight pullin, it is frame re-enforced, but not too good. and the valence it 1/4 inch thick steel to help with deer/ small animals/ rocks, beats plastic, and it houses a radiator guard. lol if i do go out and about. i wrecked the bumper ad insurance wouldnt cover it so i just fixed it myself

Needs bigger tires, fix the front bumper, and lose the tow hooks on the bumper since they are useless.

custom bumper with D-rings and a hitch mount so you can install a winch when needed, and remove it for normal driving.

Truck looks pretty good. Some things on it i would most definitely change, but that is my opinion. If ya like it, that's all that matters buddy!

Weld it to the frame. Its way stronger then just mounting to the bumper. If you pull hard enough it will break.

Mike has a frame mounted one tucked neatly behind his stock bumper. I don't know how much he uses it, but it looks REALLY good.
