Looking to do some serious modifications to my Ranger, you guys know of any good sites/dealers

Don't really have deep pockets so can't be too expensive

color match your interior (maybe $10.00, Krylon Fusion and 400/600 grit sandpaper)
T-Bar crank ($0.00)
Throttle Cable Mod (about $0.25 for like 3 or 4 zip ties lol)
Color Match skid plates (if you have them, $5.00 good can of anti-rust paint)
Clear Parking Lights (ebay, $20.00)

or you can go to autozone and get a bunch of neon lights that plug into your cigarette lighter.... lol J/K!

Knowing the mods are going to change our recommendations dramatically. Don't cut corners on the engine. Wheels and tires check out craigslist or Jegs. Bedside just start posting online that you want to trade (Craigslist and ranger sites). What color is your truck? May be pretty easy to find a matching bed.....

basically any ranger 97+ should be able to do that on it but anything before that probably has a twin i beam suspension which is really good for going fast in the desert haha
