its called a "prerunner" becuase these are the trucks that race teams use to pre-run the course tha theyll be racing later in their trophy trucks. this trucks are basically a cheaper version of a trophy truck. real prerunners came way before toyota started labeling their truck with that package.

I have the upper arms, brandon and travis are great guys and have some arm kits for great prices.
i second that. these guys just jumped on to the scene and im already hearing good things about them

and for the tires deffinetly get the general grabber red letters!!! such a great tire!!! search them on youtube and watch bj balwin use them on his trophy truck. the only downfall of that tires is bad in snow lol i feel like thats not gonna be a concern for you though

I have to do fenders first, then tires, then suspension when the wife lets me, so I want to know if I just do fenders and tires, will it look tacky?

BTW, your truck looks really good. You have a nice setup.
thanks for the compliments. and the tires are 35x12.50r17

the upper and lower control arms have been extended 3 inches to add width so the suspension is not stock

i believe i have some pictures of my fender flares and stock tires in the first page. it looks goofy but i didnt care too much. it was only like that for a few months


and also to those questioning the strength of cast parts, all preacautions have been taken as needed to weld to the stock upper arms
and have been tested rather harshly with no signs of stress

Took both my babies for a little spin a few weeks back. This is a neat place to go near Lake Cahuilla and has awesome views of the whole valley complemented with breezy cool weather and peaceful silence.













And I couldn’t find a bigger rock. Or I should say to lazy to look for one.












And my other baby

Truck looks good! Trim the rear glass and get the tail gate back on there! Love built rangers with a tailgate.

You will have to cut out sections for the hinges and latches for the tailgate to mount.

They are meant for heavily modified rangers and glassworks is best suited for a daily driven ranger. my fitment was spot on! i only had to trim a little of the corner and that was it. i highly recommend glassworks unlimited
