My Dad's 2000 XLT splash

My Dad's 1989 Ranger that he bought new was totaled by kid driving his friends Chevy too fast and hit my Dad's Ranger head on. He ordered a new 2000 Ranger to get the color and all of the options he wanted = 2.5L, A/T, A/C, P/S, P/W, P/L, P/M. Ford didn't make the Splash package anymore,that both my Dad and I like. So he ordered a XLT Flairside. I added Splash decals, Ford side steps, Ford compass mirror, wood dash trim kit and dark tint sliding rear window. My Dad had a long early morning drive to work everyday on country road, so both Rangers hit more than one deer. After deer damage to his 2000 Ranger we did some upgrades. Body color outside handles, body color bumpers, Street scene air dam/bumper cover, street scene grille inserts. Maverick parking lights mounted in the air dam. He didn't get any pictures of the Ranger with clear head lights, parking lights and aluminum wheels with white letter tires until after the poor Ranger was hit by a young girl that pulled out in front of him without looking. The air bags for some reason didn't go off. My Mom's arm was broken, other than that everyone was OK. It was sad to see the Ranger totaled with a bent frame. Ford stopped making Rangers so we fixed up a 79 F150 Ranger 4X4 for my Dad and I painted it white with a copper Ranger type color as the two tone and his new everyday driver is a 2013 Focus
