Thumbs up New Guy from VA

I have a 2005 Ford Ranger XLT 2WD 2.3 L 4Cyl with a 5-speed manual. Ive had the truck for 5 years now and it still looks just as a good as the day I got it. I want to gradually replace the lights to LED's and do some interior changes such as lights and some other stuff but with that size engine and 2WD theres not a WHOLE lot that I can do. Any Ideas? been thinking about the Cherry Bomb exhaust that will give me duals but i dont know how that would sound and I dont want it to sound like a rice-burner.

Welcome to FRF!

Maybe straight pipe it? Along with a turbo etc. The 2.3 isn't the power house though.

No its definately not the power house and thats why im very hesitant about even messing with the exhaust to be honest. I have found the Cat-Back from LMC Truck and the Cherry Bomb Duals so I think it may just come down to the price as to which one im going to go with.
