Icon6 A Red & Black Ranger, thanks go out to everyone...

Everyone has awesome trucks here and a lot of my ideas have come from other trucks, thanks!

So on to some pictures...





Niteshaded tails




Some older Pictures


I was wondering what everyone thinks about my truck, and don't hold back if you want to say it looks bad because I am always open to new ideas.

A few things I am planning on doing when it warms up would be to crank the T-bars a bit to level it out and also I want to paint the front and rear bumper plastic black as well as the fender flares black. I am unsure if I should put my brush guard back on since I removed it to put the billet grille on so let me know what you think about that.

When the rubber on these tires is gone I would like to throw on a superlift with some 33's but we will see what the money is like about that time or if I am driving something newer, never know with gas prices.

But again, thanks to everyone for ideas, I do not post much but am always looking and admiring what others have done to their trucks and using some of their ideas. I wish my truck looked as good as a lot of the trucks on here!

(sorry about all the pictures, got a little too excited)

Truck looks great I really like the red and black theme. I vote for the brush guard on even with the new grille. Throw some clear corners on the front.

like the truck alot!!!! keep up the good work....the one thing i did notice and didn't know if this is something you might want to try to do....your fenders and front bumper plastic parts are like a different shade of black and i would paint or stain them to match all the darker crispier parts on your truck!!!

Thanks for the compliments guys. Seems like a lot of you think I should put the guard back on which I have been seriously considering, still have the bottom brackets on as you can see from the side picture.

As soon as it warms up and I have some free time I will be painting the flares and valences black to match better.

I am glad I could help you out Sully, didn't think that my truck would provide insight like that.

I have one last question for you guys, since I removed the grill I want to take the emblem from the grill and make the inside black rather than blue and I was thinking of putting it on the tailgate in place of the other emblem. So would it fit being that it is larger than the other one or would I just have to hack off the plastic pins on the back and just use some 3m tape to mount the larger emblem without the alignment holes?

Thanks again guys for the help and compliments!
