Default What should I covert my Ranger to?

It's about a 50/50 as far as what would be changed, what do you all think I should do/would look better? I do like the looks of both.

Here's how it looks now:

They arent bad, cheap fix too. I think your truck has a ton of potential especially if it's dropped. I just hope your roads arent to bumpy!

the flag mirrors are not that good at all, mine were so wore out from the previous owner that at 60 mph the would start folding shut making them useless, so i got some ss mirrors, plus the ss mirrors look way better

Crap, 50/50, lol. I know I want the nicer door panels of the XLT and the 6 disc in dash CD changer of the Edge, but I'm torn between the chrome bumpers/grille of the XLT and the monochrome bumpers and honeycomb grille of the Edge. And as for the fog lights. This has been mentioned in the past...It seems that I have the harnesses at the bumper but I can't seem to find any wiring for them inside.

Ranger Sport is actually the same as the Ranger Edge, they just changed the name because Ford introduced a crossover suv called Edge in 2006.

billet grille, and wire up the foglights independantly. Run them to a switch and mount the switch somewhere on your dash. You can probably find an aftermarket 6disc CD player for cheaper than a factory one.
