I personally think it would be god awful with red decals like that.
x2 if you do red its going to look really tacky IMO. I think a ranger raptor would look really cool though. i might not go as far as the grill or any bodywork but graphics wise i think it would look really cool.

leave it alone, put black wheels on it and nice tires and leave it alone.

personally, id put polished aluminum wheels on it, they look so good on a black truck

That gives me a crazy idea, I wonder how a Ranger Raptor would look, or if it would look right once finished. Maybe have a similar F O R D grille on the front? I need to do some photoshoppin' !
Raptor Ranger.. That would be bad ass!!

I actually like the Idea of the red and black, but I would use a much deeper almost burgendy ree and I would do it flat not gloss. then black wheels with a red stripe.

Thanks for the idea! I'm still not really sure what i'm going to do with it. I haven't been on here in a while because i've been busy dealing with school stuff, and all that time I was kicking around the different things I want to do to it. I've thought about the red/black decal thing, blacking out the truck, some kind of mustang-inspired theme like a Mach1 or a Shelby/Roush/Saleen/GT Ranger, and about a million other ideas. Whenever I decide what i'm going to do to do to it, I will let y'all know.
