Thanks man!

No interior plans for now, I like the stock interior quite a bit and will even leave the stock AM/FM radio.

I'm hoping to get some FX-2 decals that look OEM, get my wheel spacers on soon, and that should be it (as I always say, although I really am planning to stop after this because I'd like to stop spending so much money on her, but it's hard!)

Thanks man! That is the combination of a clean truck and a nice overcast day. I owe most of the crispness to Adobe Lightroom. I feel you about only shooting what you like, I have been asked to do weddings and such but only really want to shoot vehicles!

Yes I did! Pics are not great but this is a stock height 2wd Ranger on 31s with 1.25" spacers in front and 1.5" spacers in back on OEM 15X7 DSG Alcoas. A wee bit of rub at times, but nothing noticeable.

It really needs a wash!







Anxious for the "clean season" and my FX2 decal.

Thanks! The spacers give it a little bit of a presence which I like.

As far as the radio, you can get one from an escape that is a single disc with Bluetooth and satellite radio, mine came from a 2008 escape and it looks exactly like the OEM Am/Fm radio. All you need is a wiring harness and some patience.

You truck looks awsome. I do believe some of the simple ideas are the best looking. Your proving that. Love the tire alcoa wheels and small additions that are adding up. Keep going!

Thanks guys!

Heyman, I am ok with the stock radio honestly, and I have an FM transmitter that works for my ipod. Thabks for the idea though, if I want to change Ill go that route!

Rudan, thanks for the compliments! I wish the Alcoas were aluminum colored and not painted but I think they go well with the silver. Gonna slow down with the mods now and save some cash.

I had to trim stock lugs with a cutting disc but apart from that no big deal! As long as I don't get any tickets for my tires sticking out I'll be happy!

I doubt you'd get a ticket for that, I see guys with tires sticking out WAY more

Speaking of tickets, would you consider window tint?

Quebec is hell for tickets lately. Unless I stumble across a cop trying to meet his quota I should be okay. My old lifted Jeep stuck out more and I was fine, I just drive a lot more now. It's unfortunate because I think the spacers make the truck look a LOT better and I hate having to worry that they may get me unwanted attention - stupid laws!!!

As for tint, no, I don't really care about that kind of stuff man. I've never had tint on any of my vehicles.

Anxiously awaiting these!!! :
