My Truck the day I bought it and today

Hey guys, I'm new to this forum as I mostly hang out on TRS (Don't go hatin' haha) but I just thought you guys might wanna see what my truck looks like.
Here it is when I first got it: 100_3216.jpg?t=1260819521
and here is the most recent pic (technically not today...but nothing has changed from this pic): 100_4089.jpg?t=1260819672
Specs I'll type out later when I have more energy haha

I still want to do some many things to it. Hopefully by the end of this summer I can say its finished! (If a man can truly say that about his truck...) And thanks man! I got the 4 15x10 rims and 4 33x12.50x15 Toyo Open Country M/T's for $900 CAN. It was a steal. And the tires were like 85-90% when I got em.

Yeah I was thinking if I raised the front up a bit I could run 35's. Its got a 4 inch Rough Country Suspension Lift and a 3 inch Performance Accessories Body Lift. But something with my front end makes it low and I dunno why. How would I go about fixing that? 6 inch lift coils?

Haha yeah I wanna slap some paint on the frame, and thanks man! I could hardly believe it either. Found em on Kijiji and the only reason I got em I think is that I kept emailing the guy and he took forever! From the day I sent him the first email to me finally getting them was over three months. It was like 3 weeks between email. Persistence FTW haha

Haha thats my plan man! I want something lighter tho...these toyo's are monsters! And my rims aren't too light either. I think its hurting my fuel economy. Any suggestions anyone? On light mud tires (weird question I know but I drive to and from work alot so I gotta watch how much gas I'm burning...I'm poor thanks to my vehicles haha)

Thanks! I wanna get a chrome push bar and 3 inch chrome exhaust tips, Then I'll have a 3 inch chrome: roll bar, step bar, and exhaust tips, and then chrome wipers and push bar. Then I'm done with the chrome! There can be too much chrome haha.

nice truck.. thats what i want mine to look like eventually. but with a 6 inch susp lift instead of the 4 and with the step bars off a newer ranger. they are expensive, 4 inch oval chromes are 400 bucks canadian from lordco..

mine has power mirrors instead of your flag mirrors. can you get a picture from the front please... i want to see what it looks like and how far the tires stick out..

it needs a couple beefy bumpers on it now also!!!!!

Haha my step bars are tech tubes brand made for a 2001-2008 or something so i had to do some custom fabbing...I should seriously take some pics of the mounts...there made outta 1/4 steel and there beefy. Definitely overkill. My 250 pound dad was like jumping on them and the bars were flexing and the truck was rocking but the mounts didn't budge. I want to put on a lower fog light valance and a chrome push bar but i think I'll keep the stock front bumper. Maybe add a front tow point or two tho...I got ambitious plans for the back bumper tho...wait till like...june for that haha. As for front pic my truck is disassembled in my shop right now but I have these pics that kinda show how much the tires stick out 100_3449.jpg?t=1260845881
000_0355.jpg?t=1260845952
For the record I filled that gap and got a new non dented tail gate. Its kinda a old pic. Oh and took off the mickey mouse ear lights haha

good looking truck man. A little TLC and she'll be a beaut. I'd take the mud flaps off though. I have some serious hate on for mud flaps

Haha I know, those tiny lil mud flaps look ridiculous with the big tires. I'm thinking either none...or bigger nice ones

Im a 1996, but yup. For some giggles here it is with same tires and only three inch body lift...I could turn about...30 degrees max before some SERIOUS rub started happening:
