Default 97 ford ranger new to this

Im 18 years old and im from Boonville, New York. My truck is a 97 ford ranger, i havent done much to it since im a college student. My truck has a 4.0 V6, 30 inch tires on it and it has a 3 inch lift in year, im gona put straight pipes on it soon. i was wondering what kind of stuff i could do my truck that wouldnt cost alot of money? i was also wondering how much a tonnaeu cover would cost for my truck?

Welcome to FRF!

Wheels/tires is always a good start. And as far as the tonneau, there are a few different types so cost would depend on what kind you're looking for.

is your truck a 4x4?

welcome from canada and tonneau covers range in price due to quality and what type they are...you have lots of options and it just depends on how much you r willing to spend

There's hard covers, soft covers, roll up, folding, fiberglass, polymers (like my Undercover) and it depends on where you want to get it from. For used ones you might want to look around Ebay or Craigslist, you could save some $$$$.

for $300 you could probably get a quality used cover...just check out ebay and stuff but a new one will cost more..

which do you think would be a better choice, a soft top or a rollup top? the only thing is during the winter we get alot of snow and i also go snowmobiling alot and carry my snowmobile on the back of my truck to the trails around my house
