Default What did you do to your ranger today thread II

This thread is for the little things that you do to your Ranger on a daily basis.

So if you did a simple mod or just changed the oil, tuned it painted some fading black or ordered parts for it post it here.

Continuation of the previous thread.... For those of you wondering, this new thread was created after seeing numerous comments that long threads greatly hinder server performance.

I actually did this yesterday afternoon but I never got around to posting pictures. I sprayed one coat of VHT Niteshades on my tails and corners along with a coat of clear.

And then I went and washed it, but it rained today. Of course.











And then I took some after the wash.





My camera takes shitty pictures at night, but this is with the lights on.



And this is with the brakes on.
