Default newb to the forum and ready for upgrades

So I have a 2000 Ranger XLT 4X4 extra cab and i figure its time to put a little extra stuff on there. SO what do you guys recommend.....I was wanting to put a tool box on but at the same time id like to put roll bars in the back as well. Maybe a bull bar in the front as well...I dont think i would need a wench so ima stay clear of it. I already have tires and rims on it and i believe thats all i need. so i'd love to hear suggestions as to wht would look good...Oh yea my truck is red and black so i think black will look the best.

Roll bars look cool, but a tool box can look good and is definitely more practical.

I am charging my sisters camera as we speak so I can go outside in the rain and post pics for yall.............im j/k its not raining right now. I am exposed to be going mud riding this weekend and get it real dirty so ill post some pics of it when im done. Anyways thanks for yalls replies. I know roll bars look better and that the tool box is more practical which thats where im at....what would my options be to put both of them on there? i mean im sure you can do that I just do not know how to go about doing that.

You could get a roll bar and a tool chest type tool box to go between the rails.

ah, yea but I wouldnt really like that i dont think. not having to crawl into the back of it. I'll probably just blow off the roll bars and put the bull bar on front and a tool box on the back and be done with it.

not bad pictures, but hey, tell me how you put those locks in!!! and how much they cost, is it just a kit? and I'm assuming it comes with a keyless entry remote?

But anyway your truck looks good I love those wheels and tires on it.
I'm going to get something similar to that (probably a cheaper version of them) in all black when I get wheels in tires, just some standard off road 15's.

take off that front lincense plate mount
My vote is black roll bars over a tool chest.
I'm kinda drawing a blank right now, I ussualy have all kinds of wacky ideas.

Are you looking for a more offroad look? if so some sort of grill guard or front bumper would be cool.

yea, its gonna be more of an offroad look. and i really do like the looks of the roll bars BUT....you just look so much space and so many options about getting a tool box.

The power lock button i believe is like 50 bucks i think....I took it to my dads car accessories guy and they fixed my speakers and installed it...it had a VERY CRAPPY one to begin with that didnt work but this one is very nice to have. and it actually DIDNT come with a remote although im sure you could get one. I am going to take the front license plate cover off and most likely install a westin ultimate bull bar in black on the front. Money is kind of tite because of me buying my sound system to put in it. That and I don't work because of school and my parents dont want it to mess with my studies. I am getting some extra money in though and ill get one before to long. My dad owns a car dealership and i bet i can take a tool box off of one of his trade-ins or something like that. The black will be a little harder to come by tho.

Do you want a roll bar or a light bar? You could make a headache rack and mount some light on it if that's what you're looking to do.

I guess I would have to understand what a headache rack is to tell you the answer lol. I do not care about the lights on it I like the looks of having some bars back there...I guess im more for roll bars then. I would just need to see some pictures and I can tell you if I like it or not.
