What are some good ones for me to try out on the '89? Went to do the throttle cable mod the other day and the previous owner already did it

We should do a write up How To make your truck a Transformer...
With Autobot or Decepticon logos over the blue ovals....tailgate/grille/steering wheel.
Lol.

Then once this mod is done, if any Chevy's or Dodges try to rip on your ranger, your ranger transforms to a big ass robot with weapons and destroys them..best mod ever.

if u want some, I will have to look up the sizes for your truck, assuming all your ovals are stock...or u can measure them and let me know the sizes..
The most common size is like 2.25 long and like .75 or .80 height
