raise the rear bumper, pull the front leave the lift brackets on and paint the crossmember and brackets. get a skid plate and take off that little plastic skid plate. go to homedepot and get $0.97 spray paint and paint the frame..

Ditch the diamond plate, raise the bumper. Other than that looks good.

Raise the bumper, the diamond plate back there looks ghetto.
The bumper looks even worse from the side.
Otherwise it looks good. I like the wheels too, though I think the 8" wide wheels look much better.

Your truck is looking really good. I would ditch some of the stickers and do the headlight and blinker mods.

thanks for the comments guys. only reason i did the diamond plate was so i could still get the spare tire down in an emergency. lots of construction and ppl puttin on roofs due to the recent wind/ice storm and theres nails and **** everywhere. lol. aint takin any chances. i thought about paintin the grille but i just wanna get a billet grille (ik most of you guys hate it but i like it). not too many ppl around here do much to their trucks besides lifts, wheels, and tires. few here and there with head/tail lights, but thats bout it. lol. what undercoat do you guys rec? its not very rusty, supprisingly, but its a little faded. and who makes a decent lookin skid plate that you dont have to have the safari bumper w/?

ok 1 you dont want to run odd size spare on larger tires your spare is like 27 28 inch tall. its worthless now. take it out.

next with the bumper raise you can still get it to lower take off the license plate there is a hole directly behind it for the lowering crank its like it was made for a body lift.

i bought them from a local car/truck accessory shop for my b-day last nov. they are $125 and they are Stampede. they also make the bugshield, tail light covers, rockerpanel covers, mudflaps, and fender flares. ive seen a couple trucks w/ ALL of that crap done and then some and it looks like ***. only thing else im doin in camo is rocker panel (but its like a big sticker like that clear film, but its camo), and im gonna have the 4x4 offroad sticker done in camo. seen both done on a black ZR2 around town and it looks good.

next thing ill do is prolly performance. dno what to do first though. any suggestions in a CAI or is there anything else i can do, especially to improve mileage. i havnt noticed much of a difference (yet) but im sure i will.

X2! I dont even have a spare with me most of the time, if I take a road trip I throw one in the bed(Same size). I can call someone if I get a flat around here.

yea, i love em. id like to eventually get another tire/rim to match the others and put it in the bed. but im not havin ne luck finding a spare tire rack/mount other than a tailgate thats like 6-900 bux. ne way to fix the front bumber? it looks kinna rigged when you get to lookin at it up close cuz you can see the brackets and frame where the towhooks used to be. wantin an offroad bumper but cant find neone that makes them for the ranger. tried a local acces. shop and he said that noone makes em for the smaller trucks cuz their too heavy and weigh down the front end too much. or i thought about gettin a grille guard, but idk how that would work w/ a BL or not.
