Default Black06ranger build.

What's going on everyone. Thought it was time to put a build thread on here. Ive had my ranger for 2 years now. When I picked her up she was almost bone stock. All she had was spray in bedliner, factory tint and window guards. Everything I've done has been by me and a good amount of help from my father inlaw. I have a 6 year old and a wife so money is always tight so mods come slow around here.

things I've done.

Bought black headlights from frf member.
throttle cable mod
air box mod with k&n drop in filter
plasti dip a ton of parts on her.
led's on front driving/turn signal
led's on corner lights
tinted windows all the way around
black corners from ford4thot.
decals from Glen.
New grille
Kenwood radio
seat covers


And a lot more I'm probably forgetting.

Looks good, love a clean black truck! Glad you like the corners.

Any idea of next mods?

Thanks. Oh ya I do have more to do. Lights behind grille. Install Mustang dome. Paint rims black ( until I can afford to replace them). I like to give her a little lift. So probably hold off on new rims till that day comes lol.

Right now my tales are window tinted . what a pain in the ass that was. I'm going to vth night shade them but leave the reverse clear like yours was.

Took little break on truck. Decided to reclaim my man cave from storage. Always a work in progress. My basement was filled with boxes. Hell of a clean job. Some quick pictures of the man cave.

if I had waited 1 more year to reclaim my area I'd probably would have set a match to the whole damn thing hahaha. Still more to do. Putting in a hdmi tv so I can mirror my phone over to it so I can watch movies, nfl. That way I dont have to run cable down there.

trying out ArmorAll outlast glaze. It's a polymer, no silicone. It's dry to the touch. Says it'll stay looking like this for 100 washes. So far so good.
