New tailgate (bought off craigslist for a good deal, it was a perfect deal since its the same color. off an 02 ranger.)

This was off my old truck, a studded chrome license plate trim panel. i think it looks cool since they are snowmobile track studs.



next exterior update is a new bumper (second to last picture) its rusted through.
