New pictures of my Ranger

Hi, I've had my 97 Ranger XLT flareside for a few years and it now has 131K miles on it. It was stock when I bought it [other than some aftermarket orange and silver sport decals ] I've added splash parts as well as aftermarket parts to get my truck looking the way I want it. I fixed a few small dents in the body, I added 93/94 Splash stripes, XLT decals on the rear 1/4s, Crown Victoria body side door molding to the doors. New head lights and tail lights, new door handles and locks, a new Ford windshield with the Ranger logo, black antenna mast with rubber cover, LED day time running lights, tail light louvers, 3rd brake light bezel painted body color, new body color grille, Xenon front air dam and outside handles. Dark blue Ford wheel center emblems, Cooper Cobra tires, Street Scene door mirrors, 2.3L emblem on the tailgate, changed the gray plastic bumper trim to black, installed a bed liner. I've done some clean up and dress up under the hood replaced the yellowed washer bottle and master cylinder, added a under hood light, foil under hood insulation and installed a K&N air intake. Under the truck I've also done some clean up and installed KYB gas shocks, a dynomax cat back exhaust, chrome rear end cover and a matching aluminum wheel for the spare. I installed two inch lowering shackles because the rear of the truck sat too high. Inside the Ranger I installed a new headliner and carpet, NOS Ranger floor mats, a wood dash kit, aluminum gauge bezel, a Autogauge tach, splash decal on the shift indicator block off, aluminum *****, 1979 XLT Ranger dash emblem, 2000 Ranger XLT door panels without carpet on the bottoms, a Pioneer stereo and speakers, a Ford emblem on the steering wheel and I change all of the gauge and controls back lighting from blue to green.

Nice ride, I like that dash board look. I've been looking to do some uograde to mine insides for a bit. I have been getting that feeling its time to move on to another ride but I put my summer rims and wheels on last week....Lowering the ride height has been crossing my brain a few too many times...LOL

Here's the updated pictures and information for my Ranger Splash XLT
Hi, I've had my 97 Ranger XLT flareside for a few years and it now has 132K miles on it and I've just rebuilt and detailed the engine December 2014. I've updated some of my pictures. It was stock when I bought it [other than some aftermarket orange and silver sport decals ] I've added splash parts as well as aftermarket parts to get my truck looking the way I want it. I fixed a few small dents in the body, I added 93/94 Splash stripes, XLT decals on the rear 1/4s, Crown Victoria body side door molding to the doors. New head lights and tail lights, new door handles and locks, a new Ford windshield with the Ranger logo, black antenna mast with rubber cover, LED day time running lights, tail light louvers, 3rd brake light bezel painted body color, new body color grille, Xenon front air dam and body color outside handles. Dark blue Ford wheel center emblems on 98/00 center caps, Cooper Cobra tires, Street Scene door mirrors, 2.3L emblem on the tailgate, changed the gray plastic bumper trim to black, installed a bed liner and a black aluminum DeeZee storage box in the bed. I've done some clean up and dress up under the hood replaced the yellowed washer bottle and master cylinder, added a under hood light, foil under hood insulation and installed a K&N air intake. Under the truck I've also done some clean up and installed KYB gas shocks, added a rear sway bar, a dynomax cat back exhaust, chrome rear end cover and a matching aluminum wheel for the spare. I installed two inch lowering shackles because the rear of the truck sat too high. Inside the Ranger I installed a new headliner and carpet, NOS Ranger floor mats, a wood dash kit, aluminum gauge bezel, a Autogauge tach, splash decal on the shift indicator block off, aluminum *****, 1979 XLT Ranger dash emblem, 2000 Ranger XLT door panels without carpet on the bottoms, a Pioneer stereo and speakers, a Ford emblem on the steering wheel and I change all of the gauge and controls back lighting from blue to green. I just installed a black vinyl shifter boot to replace the stock rubber boot. I still have a few changes and improvements to make on the truck I love my Ranger and enjoy fixing it up and driving it. This is a great Ranger site I'm glad i found it.

That is a clean looking splash. I've always liked the look of the splashes. I usually prefer a lifted truck but I think the splash version looks better lowered vs lifted.

I painted the back ground colors of the Ford grille emblem red, yellow and blue to match the splash stripe colors and I've installed rear window louvers on my Ranger

Nice XLT stepside. I love a Splash. My first truck was a White 93 Splash.
