Exclamation Ways to make a plain white 2007 ford ranger look better

Hello, I have recently purchased a 2007 ford ranger. I really love the truck but am looking for ways to spruce up its looks a little bit. It is the classic oxford white, and I recently bought a chrome bed toolbox, and a exhaust tip which have helped make it look a little better, but I am still looking for more things like that that might help. Any ideas are appreciated, not really looking to paint it. Thanks!

=====================
Some aluminum wheels that are black on the inside and outer lip is polished, some 235/60 tires, and some black pinstripin would be a good start IMO.

Does it have a black or chrome grill? I assume the interior is gray vinyl bench seat? If so, a nice set of gray cloth buckets & an Explorer mini console......

I'd bedliner the dang thing and paint it black. Black out the headlights with an HID kit, adds sexy light bar up top, and throw on the meatiest tires you can buy. Also, I suggest you redo your exhaust.
Chicks.
Dig.
Stacks.

Around my area there is a white Ranger with 2 racing stripes that go all the way ovver the truck, they layed it out evenly and I love how it looks. I was planing on doing that with my white 06, but she had to come to a sudden end.

Dip your wheels, corner lights, and valance black. Get a headache rack to go over your toolbox, add some auxiliary lights, swap your stock muffler for literally anything else.
Pretty easy do it yourself stuff that don't require tons of cash.

You have to decide for yourself and how much you want to spend.
I always start with wheels and tires and then see what direction to go.
I like keeping things clean and simple...stock Alcoas with some nice AT tires look great on a ranger imo...but its all personal opinion...with lots of options from lowered to lifted to clean and stock.
I'll stay away from dipping, squats, black out and stacks because I haven't seen any examples that made me go 'wow I really need to do that!'
I did see someone 'roll coal' for the first time and was not impressed..point is you might like.

You got a tool box, then how about bed rails and x2 on a headboard rack.
This site has many build threads that will give you plenty of ideas to follow.

Wheels and or tires.

That's all ya need IMO! I have a base model too, that's all I did and I think it changed it entirely.

As stated above, all personal opinion. I'm in the same boat you are, except my truck is all black, save the chrome grill and mirrors. I just recently painted the inside of the headlight housing blue, and put some blue valve caps on. I'm thinking about dipping my lug nut covers blue as well, and maybe a little more on the rims. Great thing about dipping is its temporary, so you can experiment with different colors. You can dip your door handles, or anything plastic. Just enough to accent the white. I bet red accents would look sweet. If you don't like it, peel it off and try something else.

I got a buddy that says he could paint my rocker panel all the way around for $30. He says the closer to red you get, the more expensive the paint, but I'm going deep blue. Then I can just do little things like the door handles or part of the mirrors. If you're good with photoshop, take a picture and photoshop some colors in to see what looks good. The possibilities of what you could do are almost endless.

Best bet is not to do anything said above

When someone tells me that chicks dig something, I tend to do the opposite. Even before I was married. That's what boys do to their vehicles. Men mod their's to their own liking. Not based on what the chicks dig.

Thanks to everyone for your ideas. Definately considering the tires are rims, probably one of the easiest most effective things to do. Not really into dipping or painting anything. The exhaust tip I recently got also helps. Any more ideas will be great, but i think i have a good start.

Although it may not seem like it, he asked for ideas, so I just threw some out there. And believe it or not, I think stacks look damn good on Rangers.
Each to their own, right?

No. Exhaust pipe 'stacks' are for large diesel trucks. It's just silliness on a small gas truck. Actually, any gas vehicle, ftm, imo.
