Crank the T bars, 08 tail lights and front side markers, lift and wheels! Good looking truck, I have always liked that color.

Yeah I'm going to crank the t-bars for sure next weekend. The truck has #1 bars so I'm pretty happy about that.

Wheels/Tires will come eventually, but I'm a 16 year old kid working part-time at a hardware store so money is hard to come by...But eventually I'll have enough. Any suggestions on fairly cheap wheel/tire combinations?

BFG A/T's are a decent tire and aren't too badly priced. If you want cheap wheels go with Crager Soft 8's. They are cheap, but are steel and are heavy! I'd throw some 32's on there. and do the headlight mod.

Melt: Yeah there are actually already 31's on there, even if it doesn't look like it. haha.

Trigger01: Yeah it seems that a lot of people on here have BFG A/T's..I'll for sure have to look into them.

Definitly has some potential. Nice Ranger. Welcome to R-F.

BFG A/Ts are great tires I would def. recommend them. I'm riding on 31" A/Ts

With the 31" A/Ts did you just do the basic t-bar crank then?

I like the colour, lose the stickers and those edge bed rails. Just search around the site there are lots of cheap easy mods to start with.
