Default My work begins on 2000 Ford ranger, 2.5

So receint black ice induced accident put my ranger into a ditch out in the mountains.


this was back in december, and now i wanna make it look like a beast from the dead, i guess the reason i am starting this thread is because i dont know what to tackle first, and i am willing to take in ideas

This is the before:


----------

And its a sport, does it make it the Xl or xlt? and what is the difference between? just need some back up against a drunk friend who rambles on while i am the guy who is getting his certification

the sport package is basically a body colored grille and bumpers, i think it was for an XL or an XLT package. judging by you're fender emblems, your truck is probibly an XL. easyier way to tell is if the truck has carpet and a cloth seat, it's an XLT.

as for rebuilding it, it looks really nice as it sits, very clean for a 12 year old truck! you could get some craiger soft 8 wheels for it, ditch the chrome wheel arch trim, and get some 06+ manual mirrors for it if you're looking for some nice mods though!

Exactly. Not much at all. Grill, lights, qaurter panel, door can be bent back with hammer and sand it out smooth and paint, hood as well. Lower bumper maybe.
