The painted bumpers make it look like an XLT base model. The wheels and hood look fine but not a fan of the bumpers.

I've had plasti dip on my wheels since about a week after I bought it. So almost 5 months now and it still looks like when I put it on.

Looks good! The flares look good but I think the bumper looks like a little too much... just my opinion though!

Rattle cans are fun. Nice way to get creative and be different.

Downgrading from an Edge to an XLT?

At least it will peel right off

I also just realized you didn't adjust your bumper, look at your gap before and after.

I never really liked the look of the edge. The xlt valence always looked better to me. I like the truck a lot man.

I agree. 06+ mirrors and emblems would look great.

You need to do the rockers too. It'll tie it in more and not look so off balanced.

Your truck looks good; to me, I like the OEM RED all the way setup., the EDGE look.
The black rims and flares look OK but everyone to themselves.
I was thinking about black rims also but now, thanks to you, I will not be doing it.
The hood center strip looks ok too.

The RED grille emblem looks good but don’t over-do the emblems or the size of the emblems like the 06 Ranger Side Emblems. The ’03 OEM Ranger side emblems look clean and simple the 06’s are too big; maybe do a little plasti-dip coating on the 03 type side “Ranger”.

Don’t get carried away with what others have done, use what HAS BEEN DONE as a guide and do your own mods the way you want them to be.
