Hey Brenden....looking at your pic of your truck.... its cool... is that big topper on the back for work???

Also are u interested in buying some nicer aluminum wheels for it? I have an extra set...my stock ones..they could use a good scrubbing and polishing..but they are good rims....plus a good steel spare rim with good rubber...
asking $150 for all 5.

well i got the truck from a guy for 800. i swapped a motor in his daughters car and he gave me a steal on the truck. when i showed up to get it he had this topper on it and the summer aluminum rims and tires in back and told me to keep it all. so to answer your question nope not for work just came with it : ) thats a good price though, im sure somebody will want them.....ps auto value in st cloud has a ton of ranger parts on clearance . i just got vent visors for 3 bucks, side steps for 10 bucks a side, and a k&n cold air intake for 30 bucks. they have a bunch of random parts that they have had in stock for over a year and haven't sold so they marked it all down to move!!

Well I made it to st. cloud..made it to auto value and they had a kn cai kit for a 2.3l but nothing for a 3.0...
And they had a hood deflector for older rangers..so I lucked out....I did get an eraser wheel for removing vinly decals and stripes..
Also went to best buy to look at auto start and alarm prices...
Took the wife to Barnes and Noble and bought her some books...then we ate at the Olive Garden...it was packed..
