Stock rears are FTW of all rears IMO. Don't even think about niteshading them either.



If anything, headlight mod a set of OEM stock 06+ tails. Nobody's sucessfully done 'em to a Ranger tail yet and it's something I wanted to do to mine. Baking them apart and painting the unneeded chrome leaving only chrome on the reflectors. Pretty much just like the difference between regular F150's and Harley or Raptor F150's. Here's a write-up on an F150 forum...

DO NOT I repeat DO NOT do those tails. I would go with an LED tail light but using the same OEM style that you have.

Chit Chea! There's a guy on Ranger-Forums who tried it with aftermarket lenses and it ended up warping the outside plastic. So he took a dremel to it and cut it apart at the joint where they meet and did the painting anyway since the lense was toast. This has been a couple years if I recall correctly. Like corner lenses, I suspect OEM's are the ones to play with.

I wanna do it do my brother's blacked out truck sooooo badly!!
