Default Trying a different hat

Hello everyone!!! My name is Jordan LeLeux; I am an accountant for a local Ford dealership, and I drive a 2006 Ranger with 2.3L 4cyl. all manual pickup truck. This is my first Ranger but not my first Ford. Since I bought this truck, I have developed the determination of tackling all the maintenance and some of the mechanical issues that have occured. I enjoy the input of all the members of this site.

Current mods:
  • Drop in bed liner (mistake)
  • Shorty antenna
  • Hella 500s behind grille (used site instructions)
  • Tinted taillights (nightshades and krylon clear)
  • Window tint
  • JVC deck
  • 18" Incubus wheels
  • Blacked out stock headlights (can't drive at night)

Future Mods:
  • 2/3 drop (to start, want to bag it)
  • New blacked out clear headlights and corners (can drive at night)
  • Roll pan
  • Shaved handles
  • Fiberglass all interior trim pieces including dash for custom paint
  • Low back bench seat with white and aqua vinyl
  • Daughters booster seat will be done to match
  • Custom center console
  • Overhead console
  • New flooring (trying to figure out how to put down laminate wood)
  • Aqua vinyl headliner.
  • sound system
  • paint exterior to match aqua and white interior

So don't freak out, aquamarine is my daughter's birthstone. One of her favorite things to do is play in my truck in the evenings and on the weekends. If you guys and gals have some advice or parts that can help with the future mods, feel free to send it my way.

Thanks,
Jordan LeLeux

I bought some new blacked out clear headlights and corners from this site. I agree they currently suck.

For the Hellas behind the grill, I want to fabricate the grille to hold the lights like the mustang grilles.

I don't think you can do laminate in a truck that doesn't have a floorpan that is modified to have large flats.
But the bench seat sounds sweet.
