Engine Cover Before...
And After. Sticks out like a sore thumb but once I get around to tidying up the rest engine compartment, it will look fresh.

Here are some photos of the prep work involved:

Do NOT use a metal razer blade to remove the pinstripe. You'll fuck the paint up. Use heat and a plastic razer or get an eraser wheel for a drill. Just don't hold it in 1 spot for too long. Nice truck

Really? I actually love my rims. I wouldn't trade them for much. Although my buddy is getting rid of his ranger soon and he has Cragar Soft 8 Look alikes on M/T's that I might jump on. If I go with black rims then I think it would be best to black out everything to match (bumpers, emblems, etc). I like the shine that the Alcoas give off.

Good Advice man. I think I'll hold off on the Pinstripe for a while until I get really sick of it haha.

Option #2!! those are about what i bought and i like them. they fit alright and work pretty good, no moisture in the housing, and the finish seems to be holding up well

Definitely go with the second one! I just don't think halos look right on the ranger. She's looking good with the flairs being renewed. Next ranger I buy it's going to be a fx4!

Thanks Guys.

I changed the plugs and wires this weekend. I also went offroading through some deep muddy water. I'm pretty certain the valence down was completely submerged at one point. I also hit up a sandpit and did some rippin' through there. Pics will come soon.

----------

Also bought a new Alcoa Cap. Was missing one before.
