Thanks!

I love the stance. It's already rocking 2" springs up front, rear shackles and a 3" BL.

The front will be coming up when I get the fresh 8.8" in to get rid of the rake.

Pretty sweet truck, not digging the wheels too much. A matching set of tires would really set that thing off.

I lvoe the width of the wire wheels, and it kinda gives it an old school look.

I have the Wild countries for all fours they just rub too bad in the front. That's why I'm gonna bring the front up.

If they weren't 12.5's they wouldn't rub bad, but these are the wheels shes stuck with now.

It looked incredible when it was on all four of the mt's.

I've tried different ones on it, and none of them seem to look right.

Washed it up, put a new CB in, threw some new tail lights, and did my every three month 99 cent underneath paint treatment.

Yeah, I'm debating whether or not to reshade. Originally when I got the truck the tail lights were faded and all the reflective stuff inside was gone and they were dim as hell.

So the shade hurt them alot.

Now, I'm thinking maybe they won't be so dim when shaded, and im running 64 smd bulbs.

The headlights were dim, so I bought new ones. lol

I might make them angry, since it seems like alot of people liked them that way, and I did too.

Love the 5.0! 1 thing when ever you are trying to show respect you usually bring the flag as close as you can to the cab, its a respect thing. usually equipping it to a tool box or something.

Yeah I kinda dig the look of the new lights.

As for the flag, that was the only place it would mount at the time.

Now I mount it on the bed rail by the driver door.

sweet truck. got any more pics of the interior? never seen what its like in that old school ranger, looks sweet. Just completely basic. Like you could be chest deep in water in that thing and it will come out fine haha. That's what I love about by 08. When i ordered it instead of spending 400 on the power package for the interior, i left it all manual, 5spd manual, manual windows basic. Instead I put the money into a limited slip rear diff.

again... sweet truck. I would have prefered an original, or at least original-look paint job since I'm not a big fan of flames either. but if thats what you like, you've got it and thats all that matters.

Around 11 city.

I'm not really a fan of flames either. But I don't have the cash to paint it. Unlike everyother vehicle I've owned I refuse to rattle can this one.

Ill get some shots of the interior. My cluster isn't stock or the steo but everything else is. Well minus the color.

Thanks for all the positive feedback. Ill be lifting the front here soon and throwibg in the fresh 8.8".
