well.. it was a long wait for me.. but finally everything clicked into place!!! i never thought id join the BL+33 club yet here we are!!

Got her back the other week... took a little longer than expected (extra time to fab the hitch/tow hook+skid plate) .. but i am MORE than happy with it... i think i was probably more excited than when i first picked the damn thing up!!! anyways.. nuff said.. onto the eye candy!

saw a raptor and had to sneak in for a pic!!

as i say more than happy with the way it turned out... i was a little skeptical about how it would ride but all my questions were answered with a quick little test drive... slightly more sluggish off the get go.. but its not as hoggish as i had imagined.. and i think its a respectable ride as well..

thanks for viewing!

Looks great minus the visor and bug guard!

kymudder08 11-17-2009 10:35 AM

super nice!!! what yrs your truck and what width tire and rim?

vista4.0 11-17-2009 10:38 AM

looks great man, would love to do this to my truck. not liking the bug guard but the visor doesnt look bad.

trent whats wrong with a bug guard? i think it make the 06+s look better bc it hides that inslightly gap between the grill and hood! but i am with you on visor, ive always hated them. however that is one of the better ones i have seen

The_Punisher 11-17-2009 11:01 AM

I love the visor and bug guard! the whole truck looks sexy! very nice!!!!

GrafixGuy 11-17-2009 11:02 AM

they don't really work from what I've heard. now the visor looks okay IMO

morris 11-17-2009 11:25 AM

RangerExtreme 11-17-2009 11:37 AM

rangeroso 11-17-2009 11:42 AM

Black Anger 11-17-2009 11:50 AM

robert99ranger 11-17-2009 11:52 AM

The whole truck looks awesome man. Love it

ShadowRanger08 11-17-2009 11:56 AM

looks gooooooooood. very nice truck dude. wanna trade flares? haha

jlstang351 11-17-2009 12:00 PM

Thats one of the best lookin rangers ive seen in a long time. The blue and black go perfect!
However the roof visor is hideous IMO. Too far south for my taste.

Ngabr1 11-17-2009 12:18 PM

dude, that looks awesome!

sullys_ranger 11-17-2009 12:27 PM

t!ts sir

RangOH 11-17-2009 01:37 PM

Nicely done! shes a looker.

Downey 11-17-2009 01:47 PM

that is sweet **** right there. is that sonic blue on your truck?

evilclown312 11-17-2009 02:08 PM

looks good but not a fan of the visors. I liked them on the gen1 and 2's. They just dont look right on the newer ones though

xp1ik99 11-17-2009 02:45 PM

holy 80's visor, everything else looks good but that boomerang needs to go asap.....

wyldechild 11-17-2009 03:33 PM

Truck looks great. I love that color combo. And the black wheels/dark tint just set it off. Definitely one of my new favorites.

As far as the bug guard goes...I like it. But i've always been a fan of bug guards. Had one on my rig until it cracked in two spots. I am going to get a new one and some for the windows too...I can't remember what they are called at the moment.

I am back and forth with the visor...I always am with visors (especially on Broncos). It gives the truck some character I think. But either way on or off the truck would be sex.

Good work sir

Ranger_Guy15 11-17-2009 03:39 PM

Looks good. Keep the bug guard, the visor, I could take it or leave it.

rangerboy101 11-17-2009 04:13 PM

Mother of God. That looks great! Nice wheel and tire choice!

NATEFX407 11-17-2009 04:52 PM

I love it man, looks awesome. Can't believe you lifted yours before me.

Billy4x4 11-17-2009 06:13 PM

hey much thanks for all the comments!! nice to hear everyones opinion...
didnt know so many people are opposed to the sunvisor + bug guard... haha
i like em so i guess thats the main thing .. to each his own!

ford the record its a 2008 vista blue, 33x12.5 on a 15x8 with 3.5" backspacing..


Mitch: im from Lindsay, right in the middle of the kawarthas i guess you could say??

and Nate: have you got any plans for your rig yet??...
at first i was just antsy to get rid of the wranglers and get some 31s or 32s.. but after much thought i figured id be happier in the end with a BL and 33s so thats the route i went, and so far i havent looked back!!

thanks again for the comments..
