Default Got her Painted Black

Hey, I just got my Ranger painted. It was green before but I got it painted black. Looks very nice in person..

Next i will be getting:
Window tint
Flowmaster 40series
Drop the front about 1 or maybe 2inches

Before


With Drop:


After:






About how much of a drop do you think i will need to make the wheel gap be gone? About 2 inches?

Looks great man!!! Love those rims

And if you want the fender to be around the top of the tire I'd go 2 inch, but if you want to put it around the lip of the rim I'd say 3

Yeah my back is lower then my front. Because i had notch my back and it made it lower. So i think my back is like 5in. That why i want to drop the front down to make it leveled.

So with the 3in i wont be able to align it good?

Yeah i removed the bar and put it in another location. I thought i posted picture of it. I also had to remove the pipe because it was hitting the axle.

Yes i am going to paint it for now. The reason i didnt get it painted was because they charge extra for painting it and the guy said its not worth paying because its going to get scratch up and he recommend the plastic bed liner.

So i am going to paint it for the time being then get the bed liner.
