Here's a link on how to paint your emblems by yourself....and to paint the chrome, im sure all you'd have to do is is get some black krylon spray paint or some color to match your truck and maybe some primer and gloss finish. The process doesn't seem too hard.

Ok so spend like $20 on paint and spend alot more time painting and working on the emblem, rather than spend a few bucks for some vinyl decals and take 2 seconds to stick them on.
And the vinyl decal can be easily removed with a hair dryer, without damaging the emblem. If u paint it, u can't really go back.

Not saying that anybody is right or wrong but I bought custom ovals from buggman (the arrived today ) and want my oval on the steering wheel to match. That oval is a pita to remove which is why I want to get a decal for it from Glenn

I guess I'll put my name on the list tentatively. I can bring whatever, wherever there's a need.

I was thinking, it'd be kinda cool to have a logo for a Minnesota Ranger Owner's Group for decals or something. I kind of imagined something like Paul Bunyan driving a Ranger over a hill. :P

Ok, I'll keep that written down.

On a different note, can any of my fellow Minnesotans chime in with any suggestions on a U-Pull place? I'm looking to pull a few parts and I'm wondering if anyone's got one that they like around here, preferably in the metro. I'm thinking of just using John's in Blaine but they seem to specialize in a bit newer vehicles, and I've heard that the U-Pull up in East Bethel is usually pretty picked over.

The places around where I live are very picky, I have been lucky and they have let me in the yards and let me pull stuff myself, but they tend to not really allow people to do that. They say it's due to insurance and crap. Plus they can charge more when they pull it for u.

There's a few I have hears of out by st. Cloud. Ones called CottonPickers, not sure about their policies, im going to hit that place up soon.

And i will try think of something to bring.. Too bad we can't get MN Ford Ranger Forum shirts or something that'd be pretty sick. or even a sticker like Gcextreme said (I'm sorry i don't know your actual name)

its Glenn, lol.

Yeah as for decals, if u want something made let me know asap.
As far as FordRangerForum.com decals I could make some, but I don't want to step on Toms toes and do that. He sales them and makes money and I don't want to invade that.

As far as this meet goes, im thinking its not just strictly a FordRangerForum meet, but a Ranger Meet, open to all Rangers, and those who participate on any forum.

There are many Ranger forums, I am a member on 3 of them. But I don't dare mention another forum name on a different forum, the forum mods and owners don't seem to like that.

So I hope u guys agree with me, this should be a Ranger meet, and not be just for FRF members?? I mean the more Rangers the better right?

Glenn, Tom here isn't a prick like other forum owners, and is not unstable, thinking he'll lose members if someone mentions another Ranger forum.
and yes, ALL rangers are invited.
