Hillyard's 2011 Ford Ranger XLT 4x4

My new to me Ford Ranger - This is #5 but my very first 4x4 X-cab 5spd

I had to drive to St. James, MO to pick this one up. It was a little rough when I picked it up but I will get it all up to par.

Already cleaned the framed and por-15'd it
Added my old 5-spoke rims from my previous 2004 Ranger
Cleaned the rotors and painted brakes
Added bedliner and OEM Bed Caps
Changed to dual tone horn
Cleaned the engine bay

Got a ton of parts waiting to get installed too. Most of them were take offs from my 2004.
#1 Torsion Bars with Pre-Keys
Mazda Tailgate - just waiting for a good day to spray it
Add my Bed Extender
James Duff Traction Bars
FR Diff Cover
F-250 Third Brake Light
Explorer OHC

I bought Bushwacker Pocket Style Fender Flares but not sure if I should install them or not. Kind of digging the nor flared look.

I dunno, the color matched below looks pretty good. It's a fellow RF member's truck.



I would want to do a two tone like an FX4 and have the fenders black and the little fake bolts be DSG. I think that would look good.

but look how "sucked in" the weels look. A wider wheel is needed IMO.


Cant believe it took me a week to see this reply.
