Default Brad's '11 Ranger

Okay guys, I sold my old truck and decided to buy this 2011 Ranger Sport. It was a trade in that we got at my work about 2 or 3 weeks ago and it immediately caught my attention. So about a week ago, my brother sold this truck to me for a great deal. It has a little over 15,000 miles on it, it's 4WD, power options (mirrors, windows, locks, etc.), alarm, built in Sirius radio, basically a "new" truck to me!

First pics:







(9/20/14), one of my bosses let me drive it home:



Took some pics of it with my old truck and I realized it was nicer because it made my old truck look like a piece of junk. Lol







Then Tuesday, (9/30/14), my brother took it and got all the windows tinted (including the windshield) so I guess that could be the first mod done to it :













(10/3/14), I cleaned my old truck up for the final time and took it to the dealership. I must admit, I shed a tear while doing it. Lol



(10/4/14), I cleaned up the new truck for the first time because the other detail guy didn't do worth a damn! Lol.













Not much of a difference from my '99 but hey, it's new to me.





(10/5/14), I polished my old toolbox and mounted it on my truck. Looks much better on this truck for some reason...



















That's all I've done to it so far but I plan doing a few things to it but nothing too drastic.

In the near future:

1) PAY IT OFF!
2) Install my old 6000k HID kit on it
3) Crank the T-bars some to level it
4) Black headlights and corners

Later down the road:

1) Shackles and cranked T-bars
2) Either 31'' or 32'' BFG A/T when I need new tires
3) Magnaflow 40-Series Muffler
4) Remove factory bed liner and get Line-X (over rail, black)

That's all I can think of for right now because it's still so new to me but I'm not gonna change it much so don't expect much from it/me guys. This is gonna be my daily driver and I will likely keep it for a very long time. Wish me luck!

So you are pressed for time? Wouldn't it have been quicker to not post a thread at all?

Alright you butt-hurts, the thread is updated.

Thought of a truck name for it too...

" White Lightnin' " (In honor of The Possum)

Yay? Nay?

I'm not sure honestly because I wasn't there but I think it's probably 15% on the back and side windows then like 30% on the front two and windshield.

Thinking about getting these:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/01-11-FORD-R...269b47&vxp=mtr

I know y'all are gonna say "headlight mod" but I'm not gonna tear apart a "new" set of headlights, and because they're OEM.

----------

Also, I was thinking about buying the windshield mount for my UltraGauge but it's $30.00 for that piece of plastic! That's outrageous!
