Default What did you do to your ranger today thread IV


Scored parts I have been looking for for a while now. Found them at my local pick and pull! The large part is a oem radiator cover panel and the two smaller pieces are oem headlight cover panels. Nothing wrong with them got all the hardware all they need is some TLC and they are gonna look great in the engine bay. These came off a 98 edge and they are a direct swap to my 05 engine bay!

Drove it, got annoyed by the plastic rattle seemingly coming from the cup holders around the gear shifter

Next time. should have added tie rods and bars, along with alignment, but still overpaid I'm sure. Call it Post Harvey need for vehicle syndrome.

Looks pretty sharp! I like the way those are broken up into small "dashes" rather than one long light strip.

Thanks! I always had one of the solid led bars on the truck up until last year when it broke, so this is a new look for me. $20 at mallwart so why not??


I will say its good knowing I can drop the spare tire without ripping things apart too!
