Default Messing around with Gimp - CrewCab Ranger

Hey guys, just wanted to see what everyone thought of my new idea for a custom Ranger. I do believe the original picture is Fordzilla80's before he did all of his current mods.

I also added my alcoas to the picture.

Yes it does. 33s at least. I just sized it so it was the stock Fx4 31 size.

Id love to actually build this. It would be an awesome finished product.

Honestly I like the box. Maybe bringing the rear tires in a little bit?

Trucks should never have a box shorter than 6 feet.

You basically made the Mexico ranger. I've seen one in person once. It was amazing.
