new truck

so i bought a 05 ranger edge with only 17k miles last week, and i love it!
ive already started to mod it but i would like some suggestions on what to do next since this is my first ranger.

so far ive
- body lifted it, (i know it looks goofy with the stock tires lol but the new 33x12.50's are in the mail along with some polished procomp 15x10's)
-clear corners
window tint (5% on the back and 35% on sides)
-nightshaded tails and third brake light
-Hids are in the mail

Welcome to the forum!

Here are my suggestions;
1) Change the order from 15x10s to 15x8s to prevent the tires from rubbing.
2) Ditch the nightshaded brake lights. They are too dark. It is illegal and over-done.
3) Send the HIDs back. HIDs in a halogen assembly glare and scatter light like a ****, and they are illegal. Get some Silverstar Ultras or Osram bulbs instead, that are legal and won't blind everyone else.
4) Get a locker if you plan on taking the truck off road at all.
5) Fix the low hanging exhaust.
6) Install gap guards.
7) Get some recovery points.

Keep the 15x10's man. You wont regret it and they wont scrub. I barely have my Torsion Bars turned and they don't scrub. Make sure and post up some pictures after you get them on, its going to look killer!

Looks good... Sounds like some good mods... Dont mind the HID haters theyre just mad we actually produce light. If you like the nightshaded tails you can wetsand then lighter then spray clear over it... Or you could swap to 06 tails

X2 on don't listen to everybody. Its your truck that your paying for so you do what you like to it. If they don't loke it then they can go fly a Kite or something exciting.

Looks good, my suggestion, see that white plastic on the clear corner, paint it. I did and I'm glad, that white plastic sticks out too much
