I had the color match grill on my 2000 ranger, I didn't like it that much personally.. to me it kind of gave the truck a kids toy look, I custom built a ford f.250 grill to fit and I think its almost perfect.. as far as your bumpers go just remember if you like to bump things you'll have some ugly paint chips to repair in the future.. my bumpers are paint match and have more chips than the truck itself... lol

Well I can tell you now if you're its main mechanic you'll know everything about it by next year. These older rangers can be the best vehicles around if you know how to keep em running, mine gives me a pretty lil migrain about once a month. Maybe I just got the bad egg tho.. haha

Yeah I think mines fuel related because my guage bounces sometimes and I tend to smell gas probably a fuel cap I'm thinking

I color matched my grille. Turned out great! I used duplicolor for the paint and the clear, no problems so far and I've had it for months.
