my 05 Ranger XLT

Here's some pics of my Ranger. Just bought it recently - and only mod I've done is 10% tint. Have some other ideas just waiting til I have some more cash. next thing probably will be exhaust.

I would have gone with 5% but the guy didnt have any at his shop so I went with 10.

I dont like the white letter tires that good, but since they are almost new - truck only has 29k on it, can't change just yet haha... but I wanted some lower profile, wider tires when I do change and maybe some different wheels then. Trying to find me a short black antenna on ebay - not sure exactly which one to get - several on there

Get your antenna from Wayne @ www.stuffforyourranger.com he has black ones on there for really good prices.

On the other note you truck looks good man. That tint is DARK!!! I dig it really sets it off.

And IMO wait on exhaust and save for wheels and tires man. They will change the truck the most for the money and exhaust you wont notice a HUGE difference just minimal

Looks good!

I wish that I could tint my windows like that (legally), but Iowa has some of the most strict window-tinting laws in the country. We're not allowed to go below 35%, and cops and HP's are very fond of testing and writing tickets for window tint.

I have those tires too. They're junk - especially on wet roads.

Lol, In Ohio our front side windows cannot be darker than 50%! However, on the rear side windows and rear window we are allowed any %

Sorry... I think I said that wrong -

We're only allowed to block 35%... so it's actually 65%. Rule of thumb - you put any tint on your side windows, it's against the law, as factory tint is about that much.

I can't store anything so need to get me a toneau cover for the bed.... As for tint, KY tint is 35 front, 25 rear, so you can go 25/15 and get away with it...but most cops don't bother you with 15-20 all around.

I had a Kia that I put 5% all around with a 5% windshield strip (i have a 5% strip on the truck windshield) which is legal in KY...and I never got bothered with the dark tint around here, and most people have 5 or 10% on their cars. One local cop told me theres too many other crimes going on, and unless your stopped for speeding they dont have time to be stopping cars to check tint.

Also I drive a lot with my drivers window down most of the time, so that lets more light in the car/truck which makes the tint not quite as dark looking during the day. Only big drawback is at night, you have to put down the drivers window to back up sometimes - cant see to back up

Good looking truck. Looks like it's ready for a 4/5 drop or at least a 2/3. As for the tires, if you don't like the white letters, take the truck to the shop and have them turn them in and run with the black letters out. Should cost ya about $8.00 a tire and then you may want to have them rebalanced.
