Default 1996 Ranger XLT Splash --- new to me!

Hey folks,

Just picked up a Ford Ranger XLT Splash on Friday and found this site shortly thereafter. The truck's in really amazing shape given the age, and minus the 3rd-light leak and brakes (which have all been fixed as of today), it's sitting pretty for the winter.

Me: I'm a nerd. I own two web-based companies (co-own one of them, I should say), both of which are trying to get off the ground. I do electronics in my spare time, including LED circuitry, fixing up computers and old radios, etc., along with being dad to a youngin', and fixing up my 100-year-old house.

So, check the pics and give me some suggestions. I'd like to smooth out some of the 1990-isms, like the black rear bumper and chrome front (eh?!), along w/ the odd(-to-me-)looking mirrors. Beyond that, it's a blank (black?) canvas: help me w/ some ideas!

Thanks for taking a peek, and hope to show off some fun stuff in the years to come.
