I'm jealous, I think they look great! I like how chrome doesn't look too flashy on a white truck.

Looks really good. What are the specs on the wheels?
Make sure to keep them polished frequently or they will look like garbage!

Thanks guys and to think I just about sold her cuz I was bored with it but then decided maybe just to beef it up a bit. Now I just love it!
Its funny, I get random guys in Rangers follow me and stop to compliment it and ask questions about the tires and lift and stuff. Its a good feeling. And where I live no one does up their Rangers so it really stands out...

33"x12.50 on Eagle alloys with backspace.

Yes i must keep them polished. I have a powerball and use Mothers polish...It works wonders... Sadly I dont have a spare set of wheels for winter so I imagine they're going to look pretty bad after winter. Hopefully I can get them polished back up nice. Might have to use some 000 steel wool to get out any pits.

tires/wheels look good.
since when did a ranger sport become a FX4?
not to be rude, but i cannot stand people who pretend their truck is something else
hell, it's not even an XLT. (if it were, the ranger emblem on the side would say XLT)
it also wouldn't surprise me if your truck wasn't even a 4x4. the 1998-2000 "sport" packages were like the 2001-2004 "edge" package: 4x4 ride height and same sized tires. in fact, the "sport" package from 1998-2000 even left off the 4x4 sticker, so you had to guess if it was a 4x2 or a 4x4.

The wheel and tire combo look great man, Really nice truck. You should be fine in the winter, I ride my American Racing Baja wheels through the winter. Just make sure you polish them once or twice and put wax on them.

who gives a ****??

i wouldnt say hes pretending.. for the average person who sees the truck they wouldnt know the difference.. plus with those meats i think he he can claim to be an fx4...

suttle differences... shocks, skid plates, maybe limited slip?? other than that Who Cares!!




your truck looks [email protected] nice & clean!!

I see what you're saying about people pretending but lets get something straight...

Number 1: IT IS 4x4, are you kidding me?? Number 2: It has Rancho shocks. Number 3: The rear end has been replaced with the 8.8 axle, WITH A LOCKER, not limited slip, Number 4: 33" Mudders and 3" lift.... So what am I am missing? A skid plate Ooooo sorry I'll take my stickers off tomorrow.

Not trying to pretend anything. Actually I just think the sticker completes the look, and thats why I went with the desert camo Fx4 sticker instead of red...I think she's Fx4 worthy...

Thanks to the rest of you guys who "get it". I appreciate the compliments...

I like how your bug reflector keeps the shape of the hood, It's way nicer than mine. What kind is it?

Thanks. I just checked and its says Ford on it. It was on the truck when I bought it a few years ago so I dont know if it was like that from the factory or aftermarket.
