Here, i took the liberty to photoshop your car..

-Lowered
-shaved door handles and key holes
-shaved gas cover (which means you have a fuel cell? haha)
-shaved 'ranger' emblem
-clear corners
-took off 'EDGE" sticker



looks good, IMO

[B]Awsome choice on wheels. Now just let me know how it rides on 22's. I've got 20's and upgrading my suspension to airbags to improve the ride and height. I'd suggest the same on your Ranger. Looks good tho'

I agree, lower it. IMHO those rims are too big for a regular cab mini truck.

its ok, but honestly the wheels look too big for the truck. wheels that big should be tucked IMO, but i dont know that they would fit tucked..

That was Ryan03Edge I believe(on GE), and when he bagged he went back to stock wheels with a low pro tire. He is fully bagged now.

i think those discs (for lack of a better word) that fit behind the wheels (between the wheel and the hub), painted to match the truck would look good and would hide all that open area that you see through the wheels.

I agree with scott and bob.....they look out of place. With wheels that size you need to have them tucked which would take a lot of modifying. Just my opinion though.

I think you should leave it the way it is. It looks sweet with the back a little higher than the front. It looks like its moving when its really not. It looks tougher and meaner if its higher and not lowered or bagged. I think.

Some dealers give you a break or even free oil changes and such if you keep the sticker on, it is basically advertising for them. Me, I'd pay for the oil changes; the stickers come off as soon as the vehicle gets home. But I'm alergic to stickers, I even tore off the FX4 stickers before the ink was dry on my sales contract..

Around here they are known as double duces.

I would make that truck lay frame with them 22's, it is really possible, witht he right amount of cash. And the right shop ( i wouldn't do it mayself i would be too scared to cut the frame) they will make that thing Mini Truckin or Truckin magazine worthy. You could do a C notch with tub in the bed with a cover, and cut the wheel wells out in the engine bay, and i would suggest covers, cause no one wants rocks, water, mud, and sand, getting on their lowered show (i think that's what your aiming for) mini truck.
