Irish when I bought my ranger the front skid and tow hooks were not there due to the previous owner replacing them with a bar for towing behind a camper, so any tow hook is an upgrade lol

Wow ok well I'm selling them for $25 and the bolts that I have are the ones that came with the lvl 2 hooks. I didn't use them because some of the heads were rounded off.

Id suggest getting them sandblasted and then painting them yourself like I did with my new ones.

I'm thinking of painting the plastic on my mirrors to match the truck.... Anyone done it or have any tips?! My painting abilities stretch to finger painting and that's about it...........

Best thing I've seen is krylon for plastic and just clean the surface really well, I've been looking at painting my bumper trim, fender flares, grille, door handles and such to get them all to black, the krylon spray cans for plastic seem to be the bet option

Take em off, get krylon for a base coat or two, then get a can of duplicator that matches your truck and final coat with that.

When I did my handle on my tailgate I sanded it smooth. It's preference.
